I have burned a playlist with 16 songs onto numerous cds (different brands) and with different running orders of tracks and everytime the cd gets to about 40 seconds from the end of the burned cd (54:05 total time) the Masterlink stops and "SYS ERROR, Disc Read Error" comes up, followed by "HDCD to reset, Disc Read error." I have reset everytime and the problem keeps happening. These cd's play fine on other cd players. Curiously, it seems like the "error" messages are affected (coming a little later) if I have different settings for the TIME DISPLAY on the Masterlink. Any suggestions?

Look at all the tracks in the playlist that you're trying to burn to CD - is there a track that you've perhaps forgotten about still in the playlist, one of less than 5 seconds? When you press Create CD, you're telling the Alesis to create a CD from the WHOLE of the current playlist, not just the track you recorded most recently ...
It's a File System error on the Hard Disk. I think the only solution may be to reformat the disk. If you're only getting this on one track on one playlist, you may be able to access the other playlists to burn all other tracks to CD so you don't lose them
Have you thought the posibillity that the track is too short so there is plenty of remaing "time"to write to the disk? Try putting some more tracks in the recording line. Don't forget that the mean time for recording on audio cd is about 74 minutes (or 99 tracks, whatever comes first).
Try this and in case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

I realise this problem is years old, but for the benefit of anyone with the same problem -
It depends on whether the track has been deleted from a Playlist, or from the Track Storage Area itself. If it's only been deleted from a Playlist, it will still be on the machine
Scroll beyond the end of any playlist, and you'll find the stored tracks. It's only possible to delete a track permanently by going through a 'This will permanently delete the track. Are you SURE?' prompt, so you can't say you weren't warned....
either have to delete the short tracks from playlist to burn...when i get mssg theres usually nothing there (hit new track 2x by accident, just silence) Or if u want what is on the short tracks, have to join it to longer track b4 or after it, making one longer track, and no more 1 sec track...to do: hold playlist edit and delete track button, will ask if want to join two tracks, say yes and its done...When u do this, the track you do this on will b joined to the previous track, it will give u mssg showing which two tracks about to join and what track name will b left...(for example do u want to join track 01 to track 02...resulting track name will b track 02)..can then burn once all short tracks either deleted or joined to larger tracks...
To delete a Track from a playlist, you must currently have that Track selected in the display. Pressing the DEL TRACK button will cause a confirm delete page to be displayed,where "Song 01" is the name of the Track to be deleted. Pressing UP/YES will remove that Track from the playlist, moving the next Track in the playlist in its place. Pressing DOWN/NO will cancel the operation and return the unit to its previous state.
NOTE: Deleting a Track from a playlist does not delete the audio samples from the hard disk. The audio remains on the disk in an "Audio File"
Have you read the section of manual relating to 'Importing CDs' ?
Select a playlist, press 'playlist edit' - press HD/CD - insert CD, close drawer. Once Alesis has scanned disc, press 'track move' - display should read Move CDTrk -> Trknn where 'nn' is the next available track in playlist. Press Cursor Left to place cursor under CDTrk, press Down/No, and display should read Move CD->Playlist. If you now hit Yes it will copy all CD tracks to the active playlist (it'll prompt if the playlist isn#'t empty to make sure you want to add the CD to the tracks already in the playlist).
Once they are copied to the playlist, you can move them around if required, DSP them, then burn that playlist to a blank CD
