Re: CD Player will not play all CD-R discs only ones it...

It might be an older system that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability. Most old players can't read CD-R discs, even if they can play normal/original CDs. You can try another media but i wont think it will help. Sorry.

My jvc mx c33 will not play cd's that I burn, plays store bought ones fine. I am using Roxio NXT Pro to make my cd's on to a .cda format. The jvc mx c33 doesn't recognize the disk, just says there is

Are you closing the disc? If so are you using CRD or CRDW. If you are using CDRW it will not burn in the proper output format. If you use CDR only it should. Also try recording at a slower speed. It has helped me in the past to do so.
A great program to try is CDBurnerXP, and it's free. After you record it then put it back in and run it again, but this time just select "Disc" then from the drop down menu Disc Information [CTRL+I] and read what format you ended up with. Remove that and check a store bought disc and compare.

Firstly double check that the recordable discs you have bear the label "Digital Audio" on them as per the attached picture. Secondly what happens when you go through the finialise procedure in the manual? Do you see the ?FIn--d? display when you select the finialise button? Do you see ?NO TOC? and ?REC? indicators blinking at the next step? Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Why won't a cd disc that I "burned" play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System?

Try cleaning the lazer lens in the Panasonic cd player. Dust can cause it not to read the disk.

I burned a disc of music but doesn't play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System.

Some players are like that! You need to experiment with different makes and speed settings when recording!

Can music be transferred to computer and then be burned to cd

(Yes) What do you mean by transferred to computer? A stream (music play like a radio) a Download (a file saved to your computer) to record a stream to a audio cd recorder is easy. You need a cable with a 3.5m plug one end and 2 RCA plugs on the other end (red and white plug) Use the plug that looks like a headphone plug, plug that into the computer headphone or speakers and the others into your stereo red into the red hole and white into the white hole choose (AUX) now play the music from your pc you should hear it playing out from your stereo. Your all set. (have fun)

A download: A music file is stored on your computer. When you choose to download a file always remember what folder it is in! for a mp3 file you can use windows media player to burn cd. (must have a CD or DVD Burner installed in your computer to do this) if not don't fret just see above it will also work on downloaded music.

CD playing erratic

Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

My mothers Teac DC-2831 skips when playing cds. We have used cd cleaning disc, and even compressed air. Nothing! What can we do? If we have to take it to a repair shop, can you give us one in the Los...

My DC-2831 started doing the same thing -- and continued, despite repeated cleaning with a CD-player cleaning disc. Oddly, older CDs would play OK, but brand new ones -- commercial CDs, not homemade -- would promptly begin skipping or lock out altogether. Solution?

Unplug the system, lock the turntable stylus arm into place with the attached C-clamp, then carefully unscrew the back and side panels. Once the innards are exposed, gently lift out the CD-player and visually inspect it for hidden dust, pet dander, even fur can get inside there and gum up the works, and that's something NO CD-cleaning kit can ever reach.

Once you've inspected and cleaned the CD-player of all visible dust and dirt, carefully replace the player, make sure it's seated properly within the shell, then reattach the side and back panels in the exact reverse order as you removed them. THIS IS CRUCIAL: if you don't put the stereo back together in the exact reverse of how you took it apart, you'll have components off-kilter, screws that won't go back in (and leftover screws are a sure sign you're screwed it up!) and your CD-player will be even more temperamental than ever. Word to the wise.

If all this sounds too scary, then you'll have to either live with the crappy CD-playing performance, or get a new system. You can't replace the CD-player unless you buy an entire new system. WARNING: these all-in-one turntable systems are VERY RARE anymore, so don't get mad and kick your TEAC or toss it out or give it away on a whim. You'll play hell trying to find a replacement.

Hope this helps!

You're probably right to suspect the motor, since its not spinning, and the lens is clean. I recently had a "no disc" error that was fixed by general mechanic maintnance- taking apart the lens mechanism, cleaning, oiling and putting back together. If youre lucky it could also be your problem, and it should be a minimum repair fee. Good luck
