Question about Sony CDRW66 CD Recorder

Open Question

Recording drive going bad.

I'm having trouble with CDs burned using my Sony CDRW66.  They often won't play smoothly in other players.  Also, when I first turn it on and hit record, it gives a REC ERROR.  I often have to try 3 or 4 times to put it into record mode, or just have to wait 30 minutes for it to warm up or something.  Not really sure what the problem is, so wondering if I need to replace the drive.  It's a GREAT CD recorder, otherwise, so I'd like to get it working again.  If you think the drive needs replaced, where can I buy one from?  There are 2 numbers printed on the drive:  0NQ1335498  &  SF-WO3PDX Ver0303.  Thanks.  --Jonathan

SOURCE: `Sony CD player won't play burned discs

Many of the older Car CD Players will not play CD-R's or they may with static sounds behind the music. What you need to do is try using a different brand of cd-r disc. If this doesn't work then it means that you may need to replace the CD player because the model that you have may not be decoded in order to play CD-R, CD-RW, play MP3's or anything of that such.
Get back to me if this doesn't work I'll help you square it away.

SOURCE: problem with Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder

Are you copying a disc you have previously recorded? SCMS will prevent this.

'No disc'on the CDR deck usually means the laser is faulty.Can you hear it spin the disc? When you open the tray has the disc been rotated? The sony's laser is usually reliable. Sony US may have a fixed price repair or you can have a look yourself. I have the service manual should you need it.

SOURCE: which cd-r audio do I buy.

when you buy cdr's to use with the recorder be sure to go and buy "cdr audio". You may have problems with certain brands. It really is hit or miss but Sony discs should be fine with this player but try to get a small number of cheaper disks and try to see what works well.

There is a small chance that one brand may sound better(or some people say) but I have never had one problem like this from one to another.

Make sure you're using CD-R AUDIO or MUSIC blank discs. It won't record onto data discs.

To Determine CD recording problem: Track1 records and plays back O.K. Upon completing track2, display window flashes continously "Now PMA" (Updating disc contents) NO playback or sound on track 2.


It is possible that until you finalize the disc, the only track that will play is the first one. Unfortunately, once you finalize the disc, you cannot record additional tracks to it. You can verify this by finalizing after recording the second track and seeing if they then both play. If that works, you can safely burn additional discs with confidence that they are burning correctly even if you cannot play each back after burning and must wait until finalization to test full burn.

Sony 5 disc cd player won't play 5 cds but plays just 1 disc


Check the mode of operation. There can be a setting where it just plays one disc. Random or mixed will give you more songs to get to other discs.

Copied CDs won't play with my Aiwa LCX 350 shelf system. It will spin for a bit, then stop. I've tried every method ... with or without remote, start/stop, etc. This doesn't happen with any retail CD. Only...


It sounds like it's not reading the CD. 2 things to try, neither of which are guaranteed to work:

1) Try changing the brand/colour of your recordable CD.  Some machines read different colours/brands better than others; particularly older CD players.  If the ones you have are all light-coloured, try burning a couple of dark-coloured CDs and see if that helps

OR:

2) It could be the speed at which you're recording.  Try burning a CD at 1x speed and see if that helps.

No Valid Tracks or No Song Select


You cannot burn audio CDs from MP3 files. You have to burn MP3 files as a data CD and not as an audio CD. See excerpt taken from page 33 in the CDR420 user guide. "Prepares CDs that can be played on standard CD players. Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) uses uncompressed PCM, .wav files. The CDR420 does not convert MP3 files to PCM so MP3 files are ignored if you choose AUDIO as the CD TYPE"

I have this recorder and when I go to burn a cd,


Always 1/3? Try just playing a full CD through it to see if it can smoothly accesss the whole disc in a linear fashion just like a recording would do. Might be something physical if it has problems at the same relative positions recording and playing. Otherwise, ther're really no reason an electronic failure should care where on the disc it fails.

MP3 CD not recognized by Sony-Error "No Disc"


the mp3 files have to be recorded in the ISO9660 level 1 or level 2 format, or the Joliet or Romeo in the expansion format.
Please note this is verbatim, straight from my Sony manual.
For details of your recording format you will have to see your converter's help or configuration files.
