Which cd(s) can be used to copy a recording on a Pioneer PDR-609
I have had a Pioneer PDR-609 for eight years. From cd to Pioneer gives excellent results. Unfortunately the disc manufacturers keep moving the goalposts, so that on one occasion one particular cd is suitable, another time you merely fire a blank attempting to copy a cd. Has anyone found a cd which is always suitable for copying?

The problem you told that sometime it works and sometime is not due to the faulty cd the cd which you r using for copying is proper its the problem of the device which it too old.the parts in it are gone weak so sometimes the cd is getting detected and sometimes not.just get it serviced /cleaned internally.also check out the lens if its dirty this can occur or the lens needs replacement if its gone weak or got got damaged internally.

Do you mean the level easily overloads when you set the input volume? You just have to carefully choose a point safely below 0 dB and make a test pass of the loudest passage while paused or just monitoring. Gain riding is probably not a good idea or very easy given the usual stiffness and small size of the volume control. Dynamic range of the recorder should be sufficient that you need not worry about losing your program in the hash.
Use of any processors in the analog path can result in sudden bursts of higher levels. I use expanders and other devices myself when recording to a Pioneer PDR-509.
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.
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.
I was following instructions for "Recording." On the next page were instructions for "Tape Copying," though the first page began with, "Load a tape for recording in Deck II." That sounded like what I wanted. Anyway, that was my error.
if you have an EQ hooked up it will not work correctly with dolby digital playback and will dammage the reciever.
sorry, just got here , but I have the same unit and have had it for 5+ years and it still works great ! but if you want any device to last unplug it when you are not going to use it for a while.
