Question about RCA CDRW120 2-Disc CD Recorder

2 Answers

CD's won't play in other machines

I just made a CD on my RCA CDRW120 from an old cassette. I plays fine on Side B, the drive which recorded it. But no other machine will recognize it - not CD players, not DVD players, not computer drives. It won't even play on side A of the CDRW120! What am I doing wrong?

    I did in fact finalize the two discs I burned. I just now went back and made doubly certain, hitting the "finalize" button on both the machine and the remote for each disc, always making certain that the display flashed "finalize" and finished before ejecting the disc. Still no go.

Did you make sure to press Finalize, then PAUSE? Otherwise they did not Finalize.

From the manual:

You need to finalize both CD-Rs and CD-RWs to make them readable on other players.
Important: Once a CD-R has been finalized, you can’t record anything else on it. A
CD-RW can be erased and re-recorded once it has been finalized, but you must first
unfinalize it. Also, once you start finalizing a disc, it can’t be cancelled.
1. Make sure the disc you want to finalize is in tray B.
2. Press FINALIZE, then PLAY/PAUSE on side B of the unit (FINALIZE appears, then
BUSY appears, and the time left to complete finalization counts down).
Finalization takes 2 minutes or more. When finished, the recorder displays the total
number of tracks and the total time for the disc.

Your problem is an easy one.....you need to "finalize" your completed/burned CD first...then it'll play in tray A...and others. Good luck....from Middleman

My rca cdrw120 2 disc cd recorder does not play or record any cds. what's wrong?


firstly call customer service to see if here are updates on this unit, else, there are two possibilities, the mechanism-which you can easily identify if the cd is spinning at all. the second is that a new optic assembly is required.the first you can do,easily; the second you can research before putting money into it.

Both trays are stuck closed


Ok, unplug the unit for 5 minutes and plug back into the socket or surge protector. if the unit continues to operate without allowing you access to play a CD, this will confirm load motor failuer. you will need to replace the load motors i thsi case.

I have hooked my CDRW 120 but it isn't recording, need to know


Connect it as any other analog cassette deck, to the Tape In and Tape Out to provide monitoring of the recprding. If you have the right types of digital connectors and cables you can use them, too, for digital sources but you maye have to still Monitor recordings via analog or else you may disconnect the desired input.

Details about your receiver would allow me to be mor specific.

You are finalizing the CD after recording? After finalization they should play in all but very old CD players.

RCA CD recorder/player CDRW120


You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.
