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?

Disc player picks up CDs, puts them down, they spin and then it picks them back up without playing them.


In my experience this is usually a problem with the CD player or the CD control unit. I have had this problem with my Wurlitzer CD Carnegie and I solved it by simply taking a Q-tip, moistening it with rubbing alcohol and lightly rubbing it on the CD player's laser lens and then using the other side of the Q-tip to dry it. Over time dust and dirt can build up on the lens causing read errors, which in turn cause the jukebox to reject the CD. If that does not help, I would suggest looking into replacing the CD player or the CD control 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?

It sounds like you might have problems with your CDs. If you are burning CDs on your computer to play in the CDJ, you need to remember that it will only play audio (wav), or MP3 files. Also, blank data CDs are cheaper that buying audio / music CDs. When you burn your CDs to play back on the CDJ, you have to be sure to burn them as wav or mp3. AAC, MP4, OGG and the other formats will not work in the player. When you burn the CD, ALWAYS burn at a slower speed than what the computer will automatically burn at. You will have to manually set the speed yourself.

Personally- when i burn my tracks CDs for my CD book, I use trusted name brand blank data CDs such as Memorex, Sony, TDK, Fuji, Imation. I burn them as AUDIO ONLY. To avoid any reading mistakes that could happen with any given CD player, i NEVER burn track CDs as mp3. When i burn the CD, i set the writing speed to 24x, 30x, or 32x. I recommend that you DO NOT burn your CDs at any speed faster than 32x. From my experience, that is the fastest and safest burning speed. If you do these things, and you still have problems with the E-83 02 code, then it will only have to be the kind of CDs your using to burn, or your CD burner in your computer. Notice how i didn't mention Maxell CDs up top. 3 months ago, i bought 2 spindles of Maxell data blanks on sale for $9.99 each. I was happy i got them that cheap, but the CDs themselves were no good. Recording everything the way i do, they had popping noises and scratching sounds through-out the disc. I gave the spindles to my neighbor. He was happy to get blank CDs free. I WILL NOT say that Maxell makes a bad product: I still record on cassettes and Maxells are one of my top 3 choices for blank chrome tapes. But the discs i bought were just a bad batch. Maxell is still a trusted name for blank tapes with us older DJs that started out with recording on tapes before the CD format became way cheaper and affordable.

Try burning your discs as audio only, and burn them at 24x, 30x, or 32x ONLY. Buy better brand name data CDs, and you should have no problems. If you use my method as an example, and you still have problems, then you need to get a new CD burner for your computer. They are always cheaper at Staples or Office Depot. Hope **** works out for you : D
