    which operating system do you have, vista or xp? if it is vista then there is a diagnostics program that can check to see if there is a problem with the cdr. it will ask you to put in a cd, when it is testing the drive, and it will start to test the sectors the laser uses to play the cd or dvd. you might try that. i dont know of any that xp has it might have that same diagnostics program built in. i have had a vista operating computer for quite a while and i am not as familiar with xp as i used to be.

    if it is an hp or compaq you can go to the start menu help tool and hardware diagnostics and go through all the tests it provides.

After unrepairable problems with the CD-Drive of an Yamaha CDR-HD1000, I got a CDR-HD1500 on guaranty. During burning of the 11th CD, it crashes (Check Disc) with 7 fresh Disc's of several...

Try different burning software to see how that works. Get the free Ashampoo suite that is easy to use, fast, and costs nothing. But if you continue to have issues, that replacement burner is no good.

Denon CDR-W1500 not recording

I had the exact problem and could not get any of the CR-Rs that I had to work. I looked up the code in the user's manual where it said the error means it's not a recordable audio CD and to refer to page 6. I looked at the front of the manual and saw that it mentions that the CD-Rs must be audio CD-R discs. I did some research online and found that there are in fact differences between CD-Rs that are just marked that and those marked as Audio or Music CD-Rs. I bought a set of CD-Rs that clearly had marked "Compact Disc Digital Audio Recordable" on the package. When I inserted this disc, I had no problems getting the recording to work. So, make sure the discs you use are clearly marked "Audio" or "Music". A computer burner won't know the difference, but your Denon recorder will.

Cdr s1000 help

Hi Rick

The unit has stopped reading discs. I suggest taking the lid off and cleaning the laser lens with a cotton bud with a little Windex , then give it a gentle polish to be sure no residue smearing is left. If that does not fix it, check to see what actually happens when you load a disc. Does the transport fully engage and clamp the disc correct into the chucking assembly. Let me know how you got on:)

Won't read any disc

Could be dirty lens. I'd almost bet bad run of CD-r's though. Does the drive recognize finished cd's? If so it the CDr's.

Deck A will not play/Deck B OK

Sounds like the CDR deck has an issue. When the disc comes out has it's position changed i.e has it been spun at all? Can you hear any motors moving? Does it work with any type of disc ( cd/cdr/cdrw)?

Problem with Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder

'No audio' comes up when you use the wrong type of cdr in the drive. You need a 'consumer audio' or 'music' specific CDR and not a generic computer cdr to use in these units.
