Question about Marantz CDR631 CD Recorder
I get finished making disc but it won't finalize. It goes from the 2 minute countdown til about 1:47 then back to the main screen like it done but it is not. Sometime it will go from the 2 minute to 1:40 something and then starts to countdown from 4:00 minutes but shuts off about 3:40something and goes back to the main screen. Always have been using maxwell 80 minute 70mb gold audio cds. Can u help/
Clean the laser and use a different [brand] disc. Marantz CD recorders and particularly the CDR631 is very sensitive to disc brand/makes. My deck burns Taiyo Yuden and Mitsui (MAM-A) discs consistently with almost zero problems, but discs like Memorex, ProDisc and a few other cheaper ones can result in a hiccup or two. Also, no problems with TDKs and Imations so far.
By the way, I use all computer-type discs, but if you have problems, I heard you'll get better results using 'Audio' type discs...then what's the point of buying a Marantz "Professional" recorder if you're going to use 'Audio' recordable CDs?

OPC: Stands for Optical Processing Calibration.
When you see this message in the Information
Display for the Record DeckK, it means
that the laser transport inside the unit is making
the calibrations and adjustments needed so that
the recording process is optimized for the specific
disc in use.
When an unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW disc is
placed in the Record Deck%, the letters
OPCwill flash once the Table of Contents has
been read. This indicates that the unit is optimizing
its circuits for maximum compatibility with
the specific recordable disc in use. the number
and total running time of any tracks that have
already been recorded will appear in the
Information DisplayK, and the appropriate
indicator SPwill light to tell you if a CD-R or
CD-RW disc is in use.
To Finalize a disc, place it in the Record
Drawer%. Once the disc's Table of Contents
information has been read and the OPC process
has been completed, press the Finalize button
E@and note that the Finalize Indicator
Uwill begin to flash. Within three seconds,
press the Select button9*and note that
the Finalize IndicatorUwill stop flashing.
The Finalization process will take up to two
minutes, depending on the length of material
recorded on the disc. During the Finalization
process the Record Deck will not accept any
