Re: Error message

Din unlock means 'digital input is unlocked' meaning it is not receiving a signal on the **digita**l input you have selected. ( eg optical or single co-axial digital from another cd player etc) Check your connections and re-select the source using the front panel until you select the one you want. What are you recording from?

Why Tascam CD-RW750 Error recording?

I don't have experience with your model. I have the 1000 model and I would try a different brand of CD discs. You don't say what error message that you are getting.

Getting error message "Din Unlock

That means you don't have a good DIgital INput (get it?) signal or bitstream. Correct the source's playback or connection.
It's on page 37 of the manual.

DIN in this context stands for Digital IN. It'strying to tell you that it can't see a good digital signal from the source.

See page 16 and 23...

Why i am seeing DIN UNLOCK

If you are recording from a DIGITAL input like the OPTICAL or DIGITAL COAXIAL and their is no signal, or if it is a 'non-copyable' copy of a digital copy (from a mini-disc or protected audio CD-R) you will see this. You need to record using ANALOG inputs, then you won't have this DIN UNLOCK problem using analog. Double check your digital connections and make sure your digital source is set to 'play' and see if the DIN Unlock goes off. Otherwise, use analog reocrding only.

The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder. Go analog.

What happens if you skip the receiver? Be advised that anything coming in digitally through a cable/satellite box may be muliti-channel and convertible by the player to its native 44.1 khz sampling rate.
