Question about Sony RCD-W500C 5-Disc CD Recorder
When trying to finalize a disc, I get error C14 error code.
I just finalized two other discs successfully and tried three times to finalize this last one unsuccessfully. I don't want to lose the information on this disc.
Is there a way to save it or is it a lost cause? The disc has music created from a digital recorder and the master on the digital recorder has been erased.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Which recordable disks are you asking about? "Erase" will only work on CD-RW and does nothing on CD-R.
Once you've recorded onto CD-R all you can do is add additional material to it until the disk is finalised to allow it to be played on virtually all CD players. The same goes with CD-RW, but with those you have the option to erase the entire disk and start again from scratch. You can also delete individual tracks from a CD-RW but the space does not become available for additional recordings until the disk is totally erased.
Perhaps you'll find the .pdf manual to be of use:-
I hope that this has answered your question, all I ask in return is that you return the favour by rating my answer.

placed in the Record Deck%, the letters

been read. This indicates that the unit is optimizing
its circuits for maximum compatibility with
the specific recordable disc in use. the number
and total running time of any tracks that have
already been recorded will appear in the
Information DisplayK, and the appropriate
indicator SPwill light to tell you if a CD-R or
CD-RW disc is in use.
