Question about Marantz CDR420 CD Recorder

Open Question

Marantz CDR-300 won't read blank disc

When a new blank 1X disc of any brand is inserted, the read out says 'CDR ERROR'. Superscope says it needs a new drive & will cost $300.00. Are there other solutions? Assuming a drive is available to individuals, has anyone installed a new drive themselves?

I've owned one for years, and yes... depending on how many discs you burn, you may need a new tray. You can call Marantz and they will ship one to you. They will also send you a diagram of how to replace it. Pretty simple.

SOURCE: CDR tray

it's more than likely the servo board which is fixed under the mechanism.
this is very common but i'm not sure which component fails on the board but i've always got hold of donor recorders and switched the servo boards and all was fine.

CD-R's must be made for and imprinted with the words "digital audio". Blank DATA discs will not be used. Do you have the manual?

SOURCE: I just bought a cdr

Hi.first congratulations..you have a nice pro recorder...As you may know your recorder can only record CD-R or CD-RW type discs..Not (+) type..Additionally To play your new recording on other CD players your disc must first be finalized after you complete the recording.
Even though user manual has detailed info on this matter here is a summary ;One final step is required after you have filled the CD-R or CD-RW, and that is to finalize the disc. If a CD-RW disc and still has time remaining, you can finalize it and later un-finalize to record some more. Of course with the CD-Rs - the cheaper and more likely playable type on more CD players - once you have finalized that's it and you cannot record on it again even if much space remains.
You can either press the small Finalize button on the top of the deck and the display indicates the couple of minutes required to do this, or if the entire recording can be made at one time you can select at the start the Sync Rec + Final option in the display, which automatically finalizes the disc at the end of the recording session..
Just in case if you need a soft PdF format user manual ,I can provide to you ,just let me know and give me your e-mail address.
Hope this info will provide a good solution for you..If you need more info please ask again..

My regards...

I have a Marantz CDR 615 and it won't let me record anything-any help would begreat thanks


What kind of error are you getting? Does it attempt to calibrate then display the entire disc as being full? If that try a blank that will tolerate recording at the 1x speed. Nowadays the only thing you will likely find are discs meant for audio recording or data discs that can record at speeds as low as 1x. If you can find some of the earlier kodak, Ampex/Quantegy, japanese maxells, etc then you will be okay. Also it may not be obvious but the cdr 615/620 will not record on cd-rw's
I bought one of those new and had nothing but trouble out of the phillips cdd2000 module that had to be replaced 3 times (3rd time at my expense of $300) but Superscope in Aurora, IL was good about support. Ironically I seam to remember a class action suit against Phillips over their very flaky cdd2000 drives.

DVD burnne will not burn data files


This could be for numerous reasons

1. the disc is not compatable with your drive ie its a cheap branded one so get a decent branded spindle of discs ie TDK or tayo yuden or the likes

2. The disc is blank

3. Is this only with blank dvds ( dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd+rw ) ?

4, can you play or read normal cd's just not dvd's ?

I had a similiar problem when my old dvd rom drive was getting old and sometimes it would work and others it wouldnt the only other thing I can think of is to ensure the chipset drivers ie the IDE / sata drivers are up to date and also are there any firmware updates for the dvd drive ?

Also ensure if there are any jumper pins ensure they are set correctly and that the data cable and power cables are seated firmly as per the other suggestion.

WIth the prices of dvd drives now it would be easier to buy a new one and replace it.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.

Errors burning to 1x to 16x DVD-R


I have had much luck recording on off brand 16X discs as follows:

1) Record a "dummy" program on the hard drive, need only about 15 or 20 seconds.

2) Put a blank disk in drive, and COPY that dummy program to disk. Do not finalize.

3) After a minute or so, window will come up and say "Cannot
complete copy."

4) Now while above window on screen, click HOME MENU, COPY, New program list, Select your movie/program to copy, go ahead and finalize, and START.

5) Think you'll find this is successful, however there might be some brands of blank disks that won't work.

6)Let me know if it works for ya. JGIDUSKO@CFL.RR.COM

Won't read any disc


Could be dirty lens. I'd almost bet bad run of CD-r's though. Does the drive recognize finished cd's? If so it the CDr's.

You can try other brands of audio cdr but it sounds like your laser is on it's way out. Some find cdrw's still work after cdr's have stopped being recognised.

Optical error


Your laser is failing. There is a test mode sequence you can try to re-calibrate it but to be honest it's the beginning of the end. I can supply replacement laser assemblies depending on where you are in the world or I can email you the service manual so you can try adjusting it yourself. Email me via ebay - fluffcat1

Audio cdrw's are still freely available in the UK.
