Sony DVD Recorder RDR GX-300

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Sony DVD Recorder RDR GX 300 that will not read DVD's and I have numerous unfinalized DVD's since I record certain horse races and keep adding to each DVD. Sony Repair Center in Texas says they no longer make parts to repair this unit which is only about 7 years old. I think that is disgusting. Any ideas on how to finalize these DVD's or find a replacement unit would be appreciated.

Check my reply to your post in the other thread.

As for double posting, that's a no-no.

You should post your request for help either here or there, not in both places. Just a bit of friendly advice.

My advice: you will need to buy a working second hand RDR GX 300 or a model compatible with your DVDs from ebay or Craiglist, then just finalize your DVDs

After that, you will need to buy or assemble a good HTPC, since the DVD recorders are now dead. Or go TiVo.

DVD recorders are not dead, just taking a nap!

They will raise again on April 1st.

Anyway you're right, there's still hope for a HD BR-recorder for the US...
