Question about NEC NR 7900A (NR7900) CD-RW Burner

1 Answer

My CD ROM ONLY plays burned cds. (won't read regular music cds)

This has been a problem for quite a while..I thought it was a hardware problem so I got another _NEC NR-7900A drive from another Dimension 2200, just like mine. I'm pretty computer savvy, so it was no problem to install. In a nutshell.. my problem is that my _NEC NR-7900A is ONLY playing burned cds, or is reading blank cds..the actual re-writer works.. I just cannot put in a regular music cd..because its not reading them. All I want is to be able to rip them to my HD. I'm not to familiar with firmware but i looked on the microsoft site, and their appears to be no firmware upgrade for it. I've tried absolutely everything and i cannot figure this out. Also this is the first time i've ever asked for advice about my PC on any internet forums. Any help would be highly appreciated.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

My cd rom won't detect blank cds


Hi,

try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
