SOURCE: I can not get my CD recorder to record

You should use consumer cd's that are rather expensive. You probably tried to record a recordable cd-rom (a cheap computer disc). It's not possible to burn a pro-disc (computer disc) by using your Pioneer, and that's why you got that message on the screen. Refer to the user manual of your cd recorder and learn what sort of blank cd you should use.

SOURCE: Above burner not detecting blank CD-R disk

have you tried cleaning cd lense and if you are using nero burning rom earlier version update to latest and try any other brand of cd-r's to see if it is the make-up of the disks as some manufactors use different ways to make cd's coating and asus have on their website all media covered by the cd burners in the last resort change to a burner that is compatable with the media you wish to use the burners have come down in price so I would sugest geting a dvd burner combo doing cd's and dvd's

SOURCE: won't record

I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.

As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).

Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

Good luck!

I just bougth a marantz cdr 300 cd recorder,everything seems to be working fine, but I'm not able to listen what I just recordered on any other cd player.Marantz cd 72 mr 2020.Thanks


Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

The laser's reflected signal is no longer detected. All you can do is to clean the unit with a lens disk like

If this fails then the laser diode has failed and the optical unit is dead - it will have to be replaced.

When I try to play a CD I get an "err" message. Using store-bought CD's, not ones that have been copied. I have the Emerson PD6559BL portable CD player Love this CD player so I hope you...


Extract from your cd player manual:

"This CD player can play normal CDs p/us CD Recordable (CD-R)
and CD Rewriteable (CD-RW) discs. However the playability of CD-RIRW discs
may be affected by the type of software that was used in 'ripping' the tracks from
the original discs and 'burning' the tracks onto the blank media. Playability may
a/so be affected by the quality and condition of the blank media you use for
recording. 100% compatibility cannot be guaranteed, this is nof an indication of
any problems with your player."

So try to burn the disc with another software or buy different CD-r.
You also want to make sure that you Burned the tracks as audio files and not MP3 file, because your player can not read MP3s.

Hope this helps.

Hi my traxdata cd900 recorder has just developed a problem. Ive been using maxell cdr's most were fine but lately:- a) optical failure error occasionally occurs b) will happily record approx 15 mins...


First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

Yes. Iif you get an audio CD recorder like a Pioneer PDR-509, HHB-30, for example, you can record from any number of sources onto a CD in as many sessions as you like until you finalize it.

WILLNOT REPLY DISC THAT IDRECORDED ONTHIS PRODUCT


I feel for you. I've had the same thing happen with my own CR recordings and I can't imagine why the creating unit has problems while others do not. On the CD's I have trouble with there is usually some unevennesss in the reflective surface after recording rather than a nice uniform appearance. I'm betting that means something like uneven tracking while laying the data down.

Bite the bullet and rerecord the CD or try this - use a CD copy application on your PC. I use Sonic. The copying process can spend more time recovering errors than normal playback allows. Or try file copying. One function or the other might get back most if not all of your music.

Cd track skidding


This can be the first sign that the optics are starting to fail. It can also indicate dirty optics. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, with a dry cotton swab, clean off the "sled rails". These are the shiny rods that the optic assembly rides on. Sometimes the grease on these rails can collect dirt and cause the movement of the optics assembly to be erratic. Let us know how you make out.
