You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

SOURCE: Phillips gogear is frozen

Press and hold the Power On/Off key and the Volume + key for a couple of seconds to reset

If that alone fails, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager

SOURCE: USB not recognized

Sometimes it helps to reinstall the drivers for the USB hub/controller in the Device Manager.
For other ideas, have a look at these external HDD troublshooting tips.

Hope it helps.

My Phillips CRD778 always tells me that i need an Audio CD. I have tried everyCDR and W and it still tells me the same thing. Can this be repaired?


Did you read the manual? The words DIGITAL AUDIO must be printed on the blank medium or it will not record to it. Find some. Try eBay.

I have a brookstone brand record player with the ability to convert records to mp3/wma files via a sd slot and a usb slot. Every time I plug in an empty flash drive/ usb toward an external hard drive, or...


Hi,
External drives require to be formatted before use on somewhere else..
Pls "format" it on your Pc and than try again....
Sometimes proper formatting is possible on the equipment itself (like Digital Cameras )
I was not able to get into your units detailed specs to see if such feature is existed..
if its exist ,you must access thru "set up menu"
Secondly ,if the display recognizes the HD than your Record player will create its own Files/ folders..try to record something even it reads "no file" and than plug it into your PC to see what has been recorded..
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

I have connected my phillips cdr785 recorder the proper way to record from an external source and I get the message "start source" on the cdr side when trying to record. And it never starts...


If you're recording an analog source the recorder won't automatically start. You have to start it in sync with the playback.

If you're trying a synchronized digital recording...

Page 28 of the manual says

Start playback on the selected source.


The CD recorder starts to record simultaneously and recording in progress is shown. The remaining recording time left of the CDR(W) is displayed.


Note: If you start playback on the selected source within a track, recording starts at the beginning of the next track or after 2.7 seconds of silence in analogue recordings.

Does the unit recognize 80 minute discs?


Any desk CD recorder will only recognize discs labeled "Audio Disc".
That means you cannot use CD-R or CD-RW discs, that are basically data discs. No matter duration, if your 80 minute disc is CD-R or CD-RW, your unit will not recognize it. Good Luck.

External HDD no longer recognized by new win7 PC


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Recorded finalized CD's will not play on standard CD player


Are you using the same brand of discs you used to? Do they palyback on the machine in both the record and the playback deck? Do your old cdr's you recorded still play in the standard cd player? You can try the diagnostics - hold down the 'play' and 'fwd' keys on the record side as you power it on.

Record mode


Hi everyone! In reply to my own question.The answer was operator error,not knowing the operation of the unit.It was due to the incorrect timing of the input source to be recorded.Everything ok now.
