Question about MediaFORM CD 3706 Burner

1 Answer

3706 partially burning, then rejecting cds

I own a Mediaform CD-3706 that i got from a salvage company for dirt-cheap. Needless to say, the unit did not come with a manual (if anyone has one, let me know!), but with a little online browsing i was able to figure out how to get it working.

I've been running it relatively constantly for almost 2 weeks now, burning a large project of 10,000 cds. After i'd successfully burned about 3000 cds i began encountering the following problem...

Occasionally, the duplicator will stop in the middle of (or after) a group of 6 cds is being burned and display an error message. When this happens, the arm moves all the way to the bottom of it's track and rests there, completely halting the whole duplication batch, and without even ejecting the cds from the drives. When i manually eject the cds it appears as though some of them were burned properly, where as others have very little information burned to them (i am judging this by looking at the bottom of the cds). I thought it might be the drives, but it seams to be happening randomely, and not consistant to any specific drives. It seams the more i duplicate, the more frequently this occurs. Does anyone know how I can prevent this from happening?

    Does this mean the drives need to be replaced or i need to allow time for the drives to rest between batches?

I have an external teac dv-28e-n usb DVD writer device which does not recognise and burn DVD rewritablce discs.

I think that Teac DV-28e Is a CD/DVD-ROM only, and will not burn discs. Teac DW-28e is a CD RW/ DVD ROM unit, and will thus play and burn CDs, but will only play DVDs. Check your model numbers to confirm, and then consider exchanging units if you need to burn CDs.

CD Rom will Burn CDs But not DVD's. Tried 3 burn

Change your DVD recorder. The DVD's have 2 lassers, one red for CD & 1 Lila for DVD, both are sinchronized on the same lens but is diferent lasser. DVD lasser is wrong, dead, do you need other DVD unit.

How does the information get into the Mediaform cd-3703 I am new to using the burner

Was there a "User Guide" supplied with manual?
Does it contain instructions?

Since this seems to be a "bulk" CD-copier,
is it possible that FIRST insert the "master" CD, and let the copier read everything from that disk, and then you start inserting "blank" CDs, to make copies?

Can't burn cds

check your compilation, it is possible that you are trying to burn more data than you can write to a blank CD, in which case it will ask for a cd with the right capacity. 80 min CD-Rs can have 700MB written to them. if you are trying to write more than this the software will reject the blank as not having the right capacity.
