Masterlink "Disc Read Error"

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?

    Do all of the CDs play fine on other CD players?



    You're saying you get this error ONLY when you play back one of these burned CDs on the Alesis? Or when you play the playlist from the HD?

Hello,my masterlink records red book cds just fine. with or without dsp on tracks. my problem is when i am burning cd-24, they sometimes burn and finilize without dsp. however with dsp on tracks i get cd...


All I can offer is that something about your DSP is stretching the parameters of the Masterlink too far. What DSP are you applying? Is it subtle DSP, or gross manipulation?

I cant make recordings on my masterlink every time a record a few songs and try to burn a red book cd from the hard drive it says songs less than 5 seconds


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 ...

What does FS error 050 mean?


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

I have a Master Link. All playlist are full with 3 to 7 songs per play list. They are in 24 bit 96 k and too long for a cd24 to back up. How do I back up at this point so I can clear the play lists? Thank...


Reduce the playlists, one by one, to a number of tracks that will fit on a CD24. The manual states the max time that can be fitted onto a CD24, I think it's around 12-16 mins or so.

This will mean that if you have single tracks longer than this, you won't be able to write them to CD24 of course.

When deleting files to free up space on the Masterlink's drive, is it necessary to not only delete tracks but also audio files?


Yes, you need to scroll beyond the end of the current playlist, and delete the tracks from the disc, not merely delete it/them from the playlists

I bought an Alesis Masterlink ML 9600 for my church but have come to realize that its operation manual is not the best written thing I've ever read. I have it connected for analog input from my audio...


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.

Thanks and regards

I accidentally deleted a recording on the Masterlink ML-9600.


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....

Tracks too short to to create CD from hard drive.


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"

Downloading my music and then burning to a cd


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
