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. thanks.

That is not because one or the other CD is suitable , it is because of dirty lens, clean lens using a cleanerr CD.

    I quote from you "nfortunately the disc manufacturers keep moving the goalposts" false, is many years that big manufacturer,

    (Philips, TDK, Verbatim, Sony etc.) keep building CDs in the same way, only things that change is maximum speed , that is automatically downgraded by the CD writer.

    "so that
    on one occasion one particular cd is suitable, another time you merely
    fire a blank attem pting to copy a cd.": that description fits more with a dirty lens problem.

    Try using a CD cleaner and spraying canned air on the lens. If this still does not work, the lens must be cleaned directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol.

    Also use good brand CD like the ones above, any will do.

Why cant I record FM from this Pioneer vsx921


To record from the built-in FM-tuner, you can use either the DVR/BDR or the CD-R/TAPE outputs of the receiver.

Need to know how to hook up my cd player to this vsx 456 pioneer reciever and the out to my 8 track recorder. Thanks Nick


Have you looked at the manual? It's basic hook-up.

Any source's Outs go to Ins on the receiver.

Tape recorders attach to tape loops (outs to ins).

Digital sources will not appear at analog outputs.

When doing analog recording, the recording level is difficult to control manually; however, digital recording is easy because it can be programmed in the set-up menu. Analog recording level can only be...


The make and model number are not showing in the post. Can you provide it?

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.

I presume you have a manual.

Yes. Iif you get an audio CD recorder like a Pioneer PDR-509, HHB-30, for example, you can record from any number of sources onto a CD in as many sessions as you like until you finalize it.

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.

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.
