Question about Harman Kardon Sony CDPCX355

1 Answer

I'm having a problem saving disc titles with certain discs.

On CD's I burn, my machines (I have 3 of them) read them as "CD Text Discs" & after I type in the titles or artists, after a minute it goes away. I use a late version of Roxio to burn the discs. Here I tried filling in all disc information like track title & time, artist name, & album title, and I still can't get them to save this information. When I load a commercially purchased CD I have no problems. Is this something that can be fixed, or am I going to have to live with this. Otherwise this CD changer great that I store and play my CD's al in the same place, but I need to know what is where. Thank you for any help you can give me.....Greg Solook

    I'm burning my discs as audio discs in MP3 format.....Greg

    I did manually add all disc info, and finalized them. They play fine, but the machine just isn't saving the info I'm entering....Greg

    Are you burning your cds as audio discs or data discs?

    If, data, what format? e.i. .mp3, .wav, etc.

When you produce your cd's you need to manually enter the title, production date etc. before burning them. Otherwise the disc will have nothing for the player to read. Also, if your mp3 files have corrupted ID3v2 tags then the name, artist, etc. will not show up. Roxio has a tag editor utility. Another thing that sometimes causes players trouble is unfinalized discs. If you are not finalizing, do so.

Good luck,
BB

Can i use any type of blank cd format i.e. MAXELL,TDK,SONY cd/cdr/cdrw. On a TASCAM CD-RW5000 or Do it just take the DIGITAL AUDIO/COMSUMER TYPE ?


What does the instruction manual say about what to use?
Personally I buy Taiyo Yuden and have never had a problem. In Radio we used a lot of CDRW900 units and they used them many times a day using standard data discs. Name brand discs like Maxell and the rest are there for profit- they don't make discs so they do not regulate the quality. Go to supemediastore.com and read up on media quality and you will end up with what I use.

Selective playing of DVD's on Sharp DVD Recorder


Given that the machine will read disks it has written itself but not play regular discs, I suspect the lens assembly is slightly out of alignment and needs adjusting. This is not normally something you can do at home unless you have the correct test gear. It will need to go to a repair shop. One thing you can try before that is to clean the lens. Buy a quality (Scotch 3M, Philips ) cleaning disc and try it. Could be it's only a speck of dust on the lens.....

Front panel on machine just reads ..disc not finalised.what does this mean please?


Are the discs ones that you created (burned), someone else burned, or commercial discs? The message of disc not finalized usually appears when you put a CD or DVD from one unit into anther without closing (finalizing) the disc. The finalization step doesn't matter if the disc is being moved between computers with compatible OS versions (for example: XP through Windows 7). However, any other device will need this procedure completed.

Take the disc back to the unit (computer or other burner) where the disc was burned. If the computer uses Windows, put the disc in the optical drive. Open My Computer (Computer) depending on the OS by double left-clicking on the icon on the desktop. Right click on the optical drive and select Close Session.

If you created the CD on another machine, check the details for that device.

Note: you should double-check that the format that you burned to disc is compatible with this CD player. Not all models support MP3 files. On my own older CD player, I had to burn WAV files without gaps in a Disc At Once format to get the discs to play without skips.

I hope this helps.

(if the discs were commercial discs or have been finalized, I would expect a different error. In that case, I'd suspect a tracking problem and a "No Disc" error.)

I am unable to engage the record button, the display reads "unreadable or unrecordable disc"


There are several types of blank discs (CD-R, CD-RW). This unit only handles the CD-R discs. Unfortunately, this particular unit is even fussy about the CD-R discs it does accept. Even more unfortunately, there is no way to determine which will be accepted and which will not work. At this point, I can only advise you to try CD-R discs from a different manufacturer. Read the first review on amazon.com. Same issue I have had. Sorry and good luck.

Hi , can you help me, my JVC car CD player doesn't play the cd ,it takes few seconds trying to read and then ejects the disc.


If this is only occuring when you try to play burned discs, try burning them at a slower rate (2x or 4x)
If this is occuring with storebought discs, You'll need to clean your laser lens. Cleaner Cd's are available from pretty much everywhere that sells Discs.

Trouble with cdr 570 philips


Newer discs are made with different dyes. We no longer get philips discs in the UK but Maxell 80 min discs work great in my 570. Have you ever been able to use 80 min discs? Usually if a machine only accepts certain types of disc it means the laser's power output is reduced i.e it's worn out so it may be time to find a new machine unless you can get a supply of discs it does use OK.

'Mr Audio' discs from Mr Data should be avoided at all costs.I can only use them in my Sony machines.
