I'm getting error too but mine occur after it looks like I have recorded two hours of something onto my blamk, formatted disc. It seems that once the disc is too full, there is an error and I am left with nothing. Nothing to play, edit, or record, that disc is history. I don't know if this is what is happening with you but I thought I would throw it out there. Don't record for 2 hours when disc is set up for 2 hours (SP). Once this disc is full, there is no room left on it to finalize, without being able to finalize, you have nothing. It would have been nice it these types of warning were on the instruction book or labels somewhere. So we didn't have to learn the hard way and get capturn on disc what we thought we were. Like I said, yours might be a different problem but I thought it wouln't hurt to try this avenue as well.
