Question about Denon CDR-W1500 2-Disc CD Recorder

Denon CDR-W1500 not recording

A Denon CDR-W1500 is not accepting discs for recording. Loading any recordable format disc says "Use Audio Disc". We have tried CDR74 and CDR80 mastering discs (from HHB) that work on other CD recorders that are audio discs with the Compact Disc Recordable logo on. I have tried other CDR discs and CD-RW discs all with the same result. A cleaner disc has not improved the situation either.

The machine is about 3 years old and has had little use, and in fact this is the first time that the recording facility has been used in that time.

The drive plays discs without a problem. It therefore suggests something at fault with the CD burner. The UK Denon repairer have quoted us over £200 for a new drive - seems excessive for a standard CD burner these days?

Any suggestions or offers of help much appreciated.

Many thanks, Graham Wood (UK)

I had the exact problem and could not get any of the CR-Rs that I had to work. I looked up the code in the user's manual where it said the error means it's not a recordable audio CD and to refer to page 6. I looked at the front of the manual and saw that it mentions that the CD-Rs must be audio CD-R discs. I did some research online and found that there are in fact differences between CD-Rs that are just marked that and those marked as Audio or Music CD-Rs. I bought a set of CD-Rs that clearly had marked "Compact Disc Digital Audio Recordable" on the package. When I inserted this disc, I had no problems getting the recording to work. So, make sure the discs you use are clearly marked "Audio" or "Music". A computer burner won't know the difference, but your Denon recorder will.

To Determine CD recording problem: Track1 records and plays back O.K. Upon completing track2, display window flashes continously "Now PMA" (Updating disc contents) NO playback or sound on track 2.


It is possible that until you finalize the disc, the only track that will play is the first one. Unfortunately, once you finalize the disc, you cannot record additional tracks to it. You can verify this by finalizing after recording the second track and seeing if they then both play. If that works, you can safely burn additional discs with confidence that they are burning correctly even if you cannot play each back after burning and must wait until finalization to test full burn.

I don't founr cd 74 mn 650mb, what use the DENON CDR M30 ??


If I understand your question, it can play any kind of music CD but it can only record on CDR-Audio or CDR-Music discs only.

• Only audio CD-R/RW discs can be recorded with this unit. "Use Audio CD" will be displayed when a disc other than one

for use with audio such as a CD-R/RW disc for use with a personal computer or another type of disc is loaded. (See "Discs that Can Be Used with this Unit" on Page 5.)

• CD-R discs can be recorded to only once. The recorded information cannot be erased.

• The recorded information of CD-RW discs can be erased. When this disc has been finalized, erase after the finalization removal operation has been performed. (See "Cancellation of CD-RW disc finalizing" on Page 28.)

• Recording mistakes made with CD-R discs cannot be erased; therefore, it is recommended that a CD-RW disc be used until you are accustomed to the recording operation.


If you desire 74-minute blank disc just Google "cd-r audio 74". The unit will also use 800MB 80-minute CD's.

I have the Denon CDR-W1500 recorder and the recording side no longer functions. It doesn't have that many hours of use. The tray doesn't recognize a blank cd but both sides will playback discs. Your help...


Your original post said it was blank discs that didn't work.

Now it's ALL discs including pre-recorderd ones. THAT changes things considerably.

Is it audibly rotating the disc once it's loaded?

Cdr is not reading blank disc shows disc error


A few small things to try. Turn off unit, unplug for 5 minutes, plug back in, turn unit on.

There is a product called a cd/dvd lens cleaning disc. Worth the investment to have around.

Sometimes spindle dvd blanks have a few bad ones.

Check manual, might describe exactly what types of dvd blanks are best to use with the unit.

Just some suggestions, hope this helps.

Problem with Finalizing Disc


When you insert the disc what does the recorder display after it examines it (Reading TOC)? - CDR, TOC, CDR-W, NO TOC?

It should know the disc is not finalized and let you either record more on it or finalize it.

If not, and you need to recover the 4 tracks try loading the disc on a DVD player. My old Pioneer will read unfinalized CDR-A's so I can digitally copy what's on them back to another CDR-A.

Cdr s1000 help


Hi Rick

The unit has stopped reading discs. I suggest taking the lid off and cleaning the laser lens with a cotton bud with a little Windex , then give it a gentle polish to be sure no residue smearing is left. If that does not fix it, check to see what actually happens when you load a disc. Does the transport fully engage and clamp the disc correct into the chucking assembly. Let me know how you got on:)
