Question about Sony RCD-W500C 5-Disc CD Recorder

Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder

While recording from a record, I get a BUSY followed by UPDATE message then recording stops. Why?I get the UPDATE after the Tract has recorded 36 sectors. If I click "Record" and "start" again, a new track in sequence is commenced and presumably records for another 36 sectors, but I lose the input source while the New Tract is commencing.

    I got the "me too" answer, which fails to solve my problem. I am a new user to the WD 500 attempting to record sound only from my VCR via the amplifier. The Tape out from the amplifier is connected to the analog in of the WD500. I am trying to follow the manual but it is difficult. I did record a track 1 of 38 sectors, but could not record any successive tracts and I found the replay of the recorded track required me to turn the amplifier sound to the maximum. I am unable to see a recording level as described in the manual at page 27.
    The unit worked when I copied a CD to CD in this unit.

    I posted a ?me too? to a problem that when attempting to burn a CD from an audio source it appeared to burn for only about 38 sectors of track 1 and then stopped. Nothing would burn thereafter. The fixya reply was to keep the sound source going. I was doing that. This is a brand new installation and the first attempt to burn a CD from an outside audio input , not copying from another CD. The manual is not too helpful. In fact the tract that did burn had to be turned all the way up on my amplifier to be heard it was so softly burned. I wish to burn a CD from my VCR output of recorded voice radio content. I am using Memorex Music CDs. I am using analog Tape ouput from my amplifier plugged into the analog CD input port of the RCD W500c, as suggested by the diagram on page 6 of the manual. I don?t see any recording level for analog recording as suggested at page 27 of the manual

    This is the original poster. I never go a solution. I thought I was supposed to receive an email when a solution was posted by the premium assitance I paid for. I did see a proposed solution briefly, but when I returned to this profile it was gone. I think it suggested I connect my CD-recorder directly to the output of the VCR. I did that. The signal apparently came through since I could hear it transmitted by the CD recorder/player to the amplifier. But otherwise I got the same treatment as when I attempted to record from the VCR's signal inputted via the amplifier.



    It thus appears to me the unit may be malfunctioning. It would have been nice to have known that a month ago when I first posted my problem and paid for assistance.

Preliminaries:
1. Verify that the AV receiver is set to the same input that the AV cables from the CD/DVD player are connected to.
2. Set the input mode to Analog.
3. Turn off the Digital Output.
Make sure you are recording from Deck B. Immediately as the recording starts, press the REC Level button (far right, bottom on the front of the Sony) and check the LED display to make sure that the level is appropriate (tiny display on far right).
Also, make sure that the 38 tracks that you want to record are not longer than the disc can hold.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, let us try to address the weak recording level. Pls wire the VCR Audio OUT (L/R) directly to the Analog IN (L/R) of the Sony RCD-W500C while its Analog OUT (L/R) is to be connected to whatever IN is your preference in the receiver/amplifier. This will serve several purposes:

  • bypass the receiver/amp in the event that there is a setting/configuration error in the receiver/amp;
  • bypass the receiver/amp in the event that the the receiver/amp will not allow recording from the same source (Tape/MD);
  • verify that the Sony RCD-W500C will perform a recording with normal level of audio;
  • would still allow hearing the output of the material being recorded;would still allow hearing the recorded product (CD);
  • eliminate possibilities of connection/cable issues.
Pls test/perform a recording as above described and post back result(s). Additionally, pls post back the brand and model of your receiver/amplifier.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

This will need to be reset after every recording! because when the sources are switched it will reset itself!

Hello,
after getting the Update message the recording stops automatically.Then its safe to disconnect the ac power cord.This is according to the user manual.The real problem is i guess with the tract recording only up-to 36 sectors.that should probably be the capacity to be recorded in that tract.It is safe to disconnect the ac power cord and reconnect it for further recording.Awaiting your further comments.

Sir,

Do not disconnect the recorder from the power source immediately after recording. If you do, recorded material may not be saved to the CD-R or CD-RW. when busy or update appears in display, the deck is currently updating tracking information. when update stops being displayed, it is safe to disconnect the ac power cord.


thanks
good luck

Opc when recording then it stops


You don't define OPC...

One problem is if you are trying to copy material that has imbedded copy protection some recorders will stop, blocking your attempt to copy.

Another problem MIGHT be using wrong speed media.

Problem with Sony RCD-W1 CD recorder


Are you copying a disc you have previously recorded? SCMS will prevent this.

'No disc'on the CDR deck usually means the laser is faulty.Can you hear it spin the disc? When you open the tray has the disc been rotated? The sony's laser is usually reliable. Sony US may have a fixed price repair or you can have a look yourself. I have the service manual should you need it.
