DCR-DVD300 HAS AN INTERMITENT "NO DISK READING" & "NO SUPPOERTED FILE ON DISK" PROBLEM
MY DVD300 SOMETIMES DONT WANT TO RECOGNIZE MY UNFINALIZE DISKS WITH LOTS OF FAMILY MEMORIES AND NOW, NOTICING THAT, I TRY TO BACK UP ALL THOSE FILES WHEN IT DO RECOGNIZE ALL DISKS BUT THE IMAGE MIXER SOFTWARE SAYS "NO SUPPORTED FILE ON DISK" AND DONT KNOW WHY. IN THE BEGGINIG ALL THIS WAS WORKING FINE. WHAT IS HAPPENING? IS IT GOING TO DIE? WILL I LOOSE ALL MY FAMILY MEMORIES? IF IT DIES, IS THERE ANY OTHER SOFTWARE OR ANYTHING AT ALL THAT WILL HELP ME ON RETRIEVING MY PRECIOUS MOMENTS? OR, IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO OR THAT CAN BE DONE TO FIX THE PROBLEM?

Maybe a dirty burner lens. try to playback a cd rom lens cleaner disk, the one with a tiny brush on the middle of disk, never use any liquid solutions. Norton disk recovery is better if not the best software in retrieving unreadable files on cd disk. check your dvd disk too, it maybe not compatible to the unit.

Hello, It's possibly lens calibration problem, sometimes that happens when there's a lot of sudden movements during transportation, sometimes the use of scratched disks tend to trigger the Error correction algorithm of the PS3 reader, putting the reading lens into a lot of stress that heats up the EC chip and games are not read properly, causing the game to fail loading and making unusual sounds.
I recommend not to use scratched disks, try to use only PS3 game disks only to extend your console's life, and take good care of all your disks, keep them clean.
The thing is as technology improves Disks format changes to put more information into a single disk, and precision looking for data is more critical as data sectors are closer to each other, so scratched or dirty media tends to return errors.
Hope I helped, and try to seek some professional help on calibrating/substituting your old reader.
Hi - You have to install the USB driver for Windows BEFORE you attach the camera. If you attach the camera before you install the driver the driver will be broken and not work. If you did attach the camera before the driver installation you will have to remove the driver and then reinstall it then attach the camera via USB. It doesn't make a lot of sense but Sony is very emphatic about these directions.
Hopefully you have the drivers because they don't seem to be available from the Sony support website anymore.
Try resetting the Camcorder to the factory settings by pressing the reset button. If the issue persists, try power resetting the camcorder. To power reset, remove the battery of the Camcorder and press and hold the power button for 30 second(or turn the Power switch to ON position for 30 seconds) and reinsert the battery after one minute and check the operation. If the issue still persists, the service is required.
If your mini DVD disk is a DVD-RW (or DVD+RW) and it had (previously) been finalized in the VR (or Video) mode, simply select the "unfinalize" option ... (in DISC - Camera mode, from the MENU - Disc Manager - Disc Unfinalize ) ... as in p. 82 of your manual.
If you do not want the video data on the DVD-RW disk anymore, you can simply re-format the disk again, so you can re-use the disk.
I get loads of the same question you ask every day, the DVD disks do sadly fail, out of a pack of 10 you can say that 2 will not write or play back, this is still the reason most pro movie makers like myself will only use movie tape today like the Hi 8 mm sort. Also beware as we have found that lots of DVD disks we have made over 9 years ago no longer will work, so never feel your precious movies are pernament with this new mode of recordings.
Try playing the problem disks on your PC. If they wont play and the "Finalised" disks do then try recording a further brief clip on the problem disk. If that works then attempt to "Finalise" again. Can you play the problem disks in the Camera by the way?
