Question about Durabrand WD810

CD and MP3 discs burned or otherwise do not load

I've only had the stereo for 3 months, and I can't return it. The CD/MP3 player will not read any discs, but the radio is still functioning. I get the usual prompt that it is trying to read the CD and end up with it reading "Error 1." I've tried factory CDs, burned CDs, MP3 CDs. I own the manual, but their troubleshooting section is a joke. I've seen that others have encountered problems with Durabrand Car Audio, but is there any idea of a fix for this?

Re: CD and MP3 discs burned or otherwise do not load

First of all, you aren't going to like this solution because it's the truth. If you rate me poorly, it's because you don't understand the truth. The optical pickup is bad and needs to be replaced. Anything made by Jensen/Durabrand is poorly built. Yes, you're lucky to have even gotten four months use out of it. I've seen some that only last for two months and they die. Fortunately, that's why you didn't pay that much for it. I would suggest getting a Pioneer in the future.

Re: CD and MP3 discs burned or otherwise do not load

I have had mine for 3yrs and it just smoked last night(12/04-03/08). I had it in one of my demo cars to prove a point. That a properly installed and maintained budget system is possible and will outlast and out perform many Well Know brands. I have 3 show cars for my shop one budget(montero), mid level price point(dodge stealth r/t) and a full blown w/ ppi amps, mb quart speakers eclipse devices(bmw m3)
The PPI amps have smoked several times, to the point that I no longer carry PPI. My point being that no matter what you buy there is a good chance it will breakdown w/o routine cleaning and care.

Audio formats supported by kenwood kdc 719

My older CD player accepted WAV files when I burned them as Audio CDs. (I was able to add CD-Text, even though my player can't read the text. The disc I added space between the tracks though didn't work properly.)

Then do a mastered burn (disc at once) and finalize the disc. I used CD Burner XP for burning the latest batch and Audacity to create the WAV files. I've also use Roxio Creator and Nero in the past.

I hope this helps.

(I'll admit there's one issue - I can't get the disc to stop between tracks. I was copying audio tapes to CD before more of my tapes broke.)

hope you get it going with the cleaner! good luck

CD Player not working

There may be dust inside the unit on the laser. Try shoting some compressed air in the CD drive area to clean out. Also, ensure that the CD surface is clean, and try a different factory made audio CD. Sometimes CD players have problems reading "burned" CD's.

Have you tried cleaning the unit with a "Laser Lens Cleaner?" one that uses fluid? Mp3 is a fickle format and your deck may be having issues reading it. Try running a cleaner thru it. Secondly, when you burn discs, make sure you finalize it by making it "compatable for all player types" Hope this helps

Won't read mp3 and wma cds

The discs were not "finalized" or "closed" - place the cd's back on your computer cd-rom drive and search the help file of your CD burning software and search for "closing disc" or "finalizing disc." Some programs will allow you to close or finalize after you have already burned them, but others (Sony SoundForge is one exmaple) will not allow it - you may have to re-burn the discs and select the option that says "close disc after finishing" (this option is usually left unchecked by default, because closing or finalizing a disc prevents you from adding any new information to the disc).

Vmp508 verge cd player/in dash car stereo

Mine was doing the same thing for a while. I put in one of those special CDs that have little tiny brushes on them that are used to clean the laser. And after that it worked. It still does it every once in a while, but not very often. It seems to like mp3 discs more than regular CDs. But be sure to DISABLE MULTISESION when you burn your mp3s. Otherwise it will DEFINATELY give you the error 2 message.
