Question about Ricoh (RW7083A) CD-RW Burner

3 Answers

Burned CDs don't play properly

When I play my burned CD's in a regular CD player, they "pop" and "hiss". This is barely noticeable for the first couple of songs, but gets progressively worse. By song ten or eleven it's really bad. I've tried lowering my burning speed. I also applied error correction when ripping, thinking maybe this was the problem, but nothing has worked. Is this a software problem, or could it perhaps be something mechanical going in inside the drive?

It sounds like you are forcing the cd's into overburn(eg, trying to burn 800mb of files onto a 750mb disc), this can cause distortion., or as mentioned in other soltion , invest in some quality burning software e.g Nero Burning Rom.

If it won't play right when you put it in the cd may be that the burning system that you're using is off and needs to be updated or trashed for a new that?

Why won't bose play some cds

Could it be the CDs you can't play, are burned in a PC?
Not all CD players can or will play CD's burned in a PC. Sometimes the CD player is to old, so not compatible with these CDs. Sometimes the player just does not play these CD's, because of rights protection.
A CD burned in a PC is less reflective than an normal music CD. Normal CD's do have a metal coating and are highly reflective. Burned CD's have a dye, and where the laser burned the dye, it only changed colour. Making it less reflective.
All modern CD playes should be capable of playing CD r's. But the player that is really compatible, is labelled CDr and CDrw compatible.

Rcd159a boom box PLL digital radio- plays all the old mp3 cd's with a write speed 16x & under but any newly burnt one with the high speed disks fail

That's not unusual. Slower burning speed results in a deeper burn which is easier for some players to read. Unlike commercial discs which are highly reflective, burned CDs don't bounce as much light back to the laser in the pickup. Too fast a writing speed when burning can make some discs unreadable. This is why some older players can't read burned CDs at all; they were never sensitive enough to begin with. It's always a good idea to keep the write speed low (16x or so) when making CDs that will be played back in a regular CD player or boom box.

This problem is more likely to occur as the CD pickup ages and the laser weakens. If higher-speed burned discs used to play and now are having problems, it's probably time to replace the boombox (or the pickup assembly if you're ambitious). If the higher-speed discs never played, the player just can't deal with them and you'll need to keep the write speed down when burning CDs.
