Question about Audio & Video Receivers

6 Answers

I have a Vinpower digital cd duplicator. Three quarters of the copies I make on it fail in the compare process. I will test the media before copying, and then compare the copy against the hard drive source. I don't see any diagnostic tools on the system to help with the problem. I've tried different media brands. Does't help. Any ideas? Thanks, Julie R.

    I have a Vinpower digital cd duplicator. Settings are for hard drive as the source, burn time is 1x. Those are the only settings I have changed from the defaults.

    Please note the additions to my original post:
    Stand-alone Vinpower digital cd duplicator, model VP2900AL/YD SONY 1-3 with 160GB HDD.
    Settings: Hard drive as the source, burn time is 1x. That is the slowest speed available on this system. Those are the only settings I have changed from the defaults.
    Problem: Three quarters of the copies I make on it fail in the compare process. I test the media before copying, and then compare the copy against the hard drive source. I don't see any diagnostic tools on the system menu to help with the problem. I've tried different media brands. Does't help. Any ideas?

    I don't mean to be rude, but before you post your reply, please read the information listed. I get responses that recommend doing what I AM doing without a solution. 1X burn speed is the slowest available. Multiple media brands do NOT appear to make a difference in the problem. Here it is again:

    Device: Stand-alone Vinpower digital cd duplicator, model VP2900AL/YD SONY 1-3 with 160GB HDD.
    Settings: Hard drive as the source, burn time is 1x. All other settings are original defaults.
    PROBLEM: Three quarters of the copies I make on it fail in the compare process. I TEST to identify bad sectors before copying. I toss out any CD blanks that are not good. Then I copy and compare the copy against the hard drive source. I don't see any diagnostic tools on the system menu to help with the problem. I've have tried different media brands. Does't help. Any ideas?
    Thanks, Julie R.

Emissionwiz: How is this copyright infringement? Nowhere in the post does it say she's copying copyrighted cd's. I wish fixya would have some way to actually determine who are experts and who aren't. I'm tired of reading posts and the solutions posted have absolutely nothing to do with the problem or the "expert" didn't read the post. Then commes emissionwiz with the most ridiculous statement I've seen....this is copyright infringement. HOW? Even if she were copying copyrighted CDs (which we don't know she's doing or not) it's perfectly legal to duplicate them for your own personal use.

Sorry to hijack, I don't have a solution to your problem other than what you've already tried.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, (if possible) have you tried burning at a slower speed? Additionally, if it is a stand alone, it may be time for a little housekeeping of the software and/or upgrade of some of the hardware.

Pls postback the exact model number and if attached to a PC, the Operating System.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

I can only set up the system with CD/DVD not the 6ch/dvd on the select dial. May be wired up incorrectly.


No names of anything. have you looked at any manuals?

"6ch/dvd" is generally for 6-channel analog input from, say, an SACD player, the intent being to prevent direct digital copying of the original source. Selecting it will bypass all internal digital sources and digital processing.

I have a CD made from a record about 10 years ago. Has been kept in case in my lounge, no moisture, no scratches but now it will not play in any machine I can find of will not play or even recognise disc...


The format you originally made disc with is nearly obsolete. I have same issue with newer discs in older CD player in an older BMW. You might try to copy it on a MAC/Apple computer and then convert to MP3 or MP4 - OR check locally with CD duplicators some have older converters.

How i can copy audio cd


Use a computer with a CD writing program, a paid one such as nero or a free one
http://mp3.about.com/od/essentialsoftware/tp/Best_Free_Burning_software.htm
Failing that use itunes on pc or mac to rip the cd and burn a new cd.

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I have burnt a bunch of CD's for my Sony CD player. It holds approximately 400 CD's. It seems that last few songs on the burnt CD's are played with a lot of distortion. They have become progressiveley and...


I've had the same thing happen to me.

Minute variations from one machine (or disc) to the next would explain the different results. As the CD standard allows for error detection, correction and concealment as required, one machine may be exhausting its capabilites while the next is either correcting or concealing the problem inaudibly.

Try this: If your source material is not available for a new burn, COPY one 'bad' CD to a fresh disc CD-R (data disc) on your PC. The data copy process is not in real-time like music burning or listening is, so the PC may be able to retry and correct data errors in the source and write perfect data on the copy. If the PC can't read the data it will fail right away, but it will retry it a few times before giving up..

However, if the brand of media you're using is the problem you might just be making another copy that will degrade with time. No maker is immune to bad media. Sometimes one batch will have a problem while others won't.

I am planning to get an SA-DX930. How old is it? can it be hooked to a phonograph and a cd burner to copy music from albums? what is the total wattage? Thanks, Ted Vidan


1. the manual date is 1999 if that tells you anything
2. It has a native Phono Preamp for that old-school turntable
3. CD Burner: yes. Attach it in the Tape Loop and optical digital input for playback.

The CD recorder should also have digital input(s) so you can can capture digital audio from a variety of sources.

I have PIONEER PDR 609 C.D RECORDER AND I HAVE


Not a very specific problem description...

Did it ever work for you? You don't say what DOES happen when you try.

Is the signal reaching the recorder? Is it visible on the display when you select MONITOR?

Are you using CD-R AUDIO or MUSIC blank media? It requires them, not CD-R data disks.

Tape Input should be straightforward if you don't want to route it through a receiver - L and R Out from the deck to L and R Input on the CDR.

Through a receiver: if it has capacity for two decks, connect the PDR-609 itself as a the second cassette deck, then select copy, duplicate or whatever passes for it on the receiver to copy cassettes.

Without specifics of your interconnected gear I can't really go much further.

Phono is a whole 'nuther thing. Traditional turntables require a phono preamp (generally present in old receivers) to boost the tiny signal generated by the stylus to a usable level for downstream electronics. Most modern AV receivers DO NOT have a phono preamp.

WILLNOT REPLY DISC THAT IDRECORDED ONTHIS PRODUCT


I feel for you. I've had the same thing happen with my own CR recordings and I can't imagine why the creating unit has problems while others do not. On the CD's I have trouble with there is usually some unevennesss in the reflective surface after recording rather than a nice uniform appearance. I'm betting that means something like uneven tracking while laying the data down.

Bite the bullet and rerecord the CD or try this - use a CD copy application on your PC. I use Sonic. The copying process can spend more time recovering errors than normal playback allows. Or try file copying. One function or the other might get back most if not all of your music.
