    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.

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.

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.

I have tried to record from Tape to CD with No result. I have followed the instructions for this task, to the letter and still nothing on CD.


Hi,
First make sure yoou are using correct cds. You need CDR Audio discs not blank pc media type (Yes they are different). Once you have the disc type right, make sure you are finalizing the disc as they will not play in other machines until u do this

I just bought a used 2005 XC90 volvo and the 6 disc CD changer/radio will not work,you can turn it on but it goes off in less than a minute it also has no sound at all, you can adjust treble,bass,go to...


Possible fault in the optical head unit. You can remove and clean the lens eye to have a final word.
If the loading is happening without the dettecction or the rotation of the disc ,this is for a sure a possibility.
I would advice that you remove the set clean up , check on the connectors and reset.
If fault repeats get opinion before changing the head unit.

My cd recorder wont read blank cds help me please


Do as it asks, insert blank CD-Audio or CD-Music media.

Discs for recording
For recording, make sure to use special audio discs only.
These discs are marked with “Digital Audio” and the logos shown below.
There are two different types of audio discs for the use on this CD recorder:
– CD-Audio Recordable (CDR) discs
These discs can be recorded on once and
play in all standard CD players and CD
recorders, when they are finalized.
– CD-Audio ReWritable (CDRW) discs
These discs can be recorded on, erased and
re-recorded many times and play in CDRW
compatible CD players and CD recorders,
when they are finalized.
– All Philips CD players and CD recorders
with the sticker shown here are CDRW
compatible.
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of Philips audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only.
Note: Do not use a computer CDR or CDRW as recording will not work!

Go here and download the manual. You'll need it.

I can not be abel to read writed CD


These discs that are written on other systems, were they finalized or are they multi-sessions discs that have been left open? Some drives have difficulty dealing with multi-session discs created by other drives. By telling it it is OK to format the CD, it is writing a new TOC (Table of Contents) that is blank since it did not see anything on the disc previously (so it didn't know there was anything to carry over from previous sessions). Now all other drives that try to read this disc are now reading an empty TOC and figure it is a blank CD.

You can try writing a disc on another computer and making sure it finalizes it, then try reading it with your laptop. You can also try to burn data to a CD on your laptop making sure the disc is finalized and try to read it on another computer to verify these suspicions.
