    I have several cds that give the message disc not finalized on my Phillips fwc555 shelf system.(these are discs that I burned). Most of my burned discs will play in this system. The strange thing is that all of these cds will play in my car, the truck, our computer and our home system.(Panosonic)

    Any ideas?

In order for that CD to play, it has to be finalized on the same device that you used to record the CD, be it a computer or a CD recorder. Consult the recorder's directions for instructions on how to finalize the disc - or tell us the model number of the device you did to do the recording, and we can tell you how to finalize the disc.

If radio works fine, why would my CD player eject CD's before playing?


Disc loading mechanism fault. disc do not load properly. a loose loading belt, or a faulty loading motor can cause this. Contact any service technician; as you have to take out the disc loading mechanism out from it. It is not a user repairable fault.

CD will not finalize


No-way should it take that length of time to finalise anything. My DVD recorder only takes about 3 minutes at the most to do a 4 hour disc! CD are only 80 minutes max. I suspect you have an electrical fault on the unit. I would take it to the nearest Crosley Repair place.

Cd Drive not reading discs


Hi Lenora, although your device manager states that your CD drive is working properly, it cannot detect detailed faults, such as a faulty laser disc reader. You can try cleaning the laser lens with a lint-free cloth. If this doesn't solve the problem, you will most likely have to replace your CD drive.
Best wishes,
Graeme

Cd reader says disc not finalized


Don't know what a fwc100 is but you need to finalize the disc per procedure outlined in the manual- that writes the TOC (table of Contents) to the inner part of the disc which the unit reads right after the disc is recognized by the laser. If the disc is not finalized this TC is not written and you have a disc that can still be written to in certain burning units.

Hooked up a cd player to my 2005moms grand am but volume don't work? Why?


Check to make sure it is not manually muted, if that doesn't work make sure your speaker wires are connected properly in the back of the radio and speakers work also. If it is run through an amplifier, make sure the amp works and the speaker wires are connected properly too! Don't forget to check gain on the amp too!

Cd wont eject sometime,cd almost comes out but not eneough to get hold of to pull out


Possible damage on the loading mechanism or the drive section. This can be related to a mechanical fault or even obstruction from a damaged disc , a warped disc that prevents the disc to move freely and also fault in the link.finally a faulty mechanical setting or mode switch setting can also prevent the full movement of the drive.

My disks are DVD-RW and want tp use them over gain and don't know how. Also when do I finalise then and what for


For RW discs, you need to reformat them to reuse them. For your laptop, you should see a format option if you right click on the DVD icon when you have the File Explorer open to Computer (My Computer). (This assumes that the computer has a DVD writer.)

Finalizing the disc enables the contents of the disc to be read on other DVD players. (This isn't always an issue. For example, a disc burned with WinXP should be readable for a computer with Windows 7 without finalizing. However, if the disc was burned by a DVD player, the contents will not be accessible on any other units without being finalized.)

If the disc has been finalized, you need to take another step before reformatting the RW disc. Put the disc in the unit that initially finalized it. Then look for an Unfinalize option. Then format the disc again. (I've never used this feature on my computer. It's easily accessed on my DVD recorder in the same section of the submenu as finalizing the disc.)

I hope this helps.

I just bougth a marantz cdr 300 cd recorder,everything seems to be working fine, but I'm not able to listen what I just recordered on any other cd player.Marantz cd 72 mr 2020.Thanks


Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

Some Panasonic stereo's don't like non shop bought, home burnt discs (they are recorded at a different level) so try new discs plus run a CD laser cleaner through your system.
