God dammit I seem to be the only one who has this problem. My dvd player in the device seems to be crapped out. a few weeks ago I kept putting my sony dvd+r discs in it to record from the HDD and it just reads the disc for 5 minutes and then ejects it. no matter what i did it would do that and then a few days later it started working but just for that day because now it's doing the same thing. It wont read these discs, and it almost never will play a regular dvd. I work at radioshack and was excited about it, i've got a lot of use out of it but it's been about a year and i expected it to last longer. i don't know what to do to get it to work. i suppose i should try some -r discs.
