Question about Pioneer PD-R555RW CD Recorder

I can not get my CD recorder to record

When I press record on my pioneer CD recorder, it comes up on the display "pro-disc". The red record light will not come on, and I can not get it record, just play CD's. It does recognize that the blank CD is blank, and will display "new disc" then when I press record, it just displays "pro-disc". Does anyone know how to correct this?

    Dug out an old TDK  CD-R XG disc and the red (record) light came on and off we went, transferred vinyl John Cale 'Honi soit' to CD.

You should use consumer cd's that are rather expensive. You probably tried to record a recordable cd-rom (a cheap computer disc). It's not possible to burn a pro-disc (computer disc) by using your Pioneer, and that's why you got that message on the screen. Refer to the user manual of your cd recorder and learn what sort of blank cd you should use.

I have a Pioneer PDR 609 CD recorder. I put a disc in and it says Pro disc din unlock.


This is nearly always due to cable problems. I think the cheaper optical cables can get 'kinked' quite easily, which would stop the signal coming through properly. So, first check your settings to make sure the correct cable type has been selected. If that's OK, try replacing the cable with a good quality one.

Hi - I have been recording some of my vinyl albums onto CD's for several months now. All of a sudden, when I went to use the turntable yesterday, I can't get the Record light to light. What am I...


If the red indicator on the record button does not light, reload a record-able dics, wait a few seconds until "NO TOC" and "CR-R" (or "CD-RW") indicators light on the display, and press the record button again. BE sure your using the CD -R or -RW disc and make sure to use a disc bearing the "Digital Audio" mark on it.

Do I just push finalize to finish the burning of the cd?


after you've finished recording press 'finalize' the recorder will then get ready for finalizing and then a countdown time will appear in the display eg '1:20' once this appears press 'play' and the recorder will start to finalize and the digits will count down to zero, once this has finished, your disc is finalized.

My problem is when i record it show pro dish


Do you mean "pro disc?". Home CD Recorders are limited to recording on CD-Audio or CD-Music blank media. CD-R's are considered 'pro'. Get the right media.

I want to use the optical input s a dac without going through the recorder


Put in a blank or unfinalized disc, press Record until Record Manual shows. This is similar to an old-school cassette deck being in Pause/Record mode. That should do it. The input signal will be present on the audio outputs (both digital and analog).

The manual isn't specific about how long you can remain in Record Manual mode without starting to record on the CD. My Pioneer has a Monitor function so I don't need to place a blank disc for this.

Hi can i record on my pioneer pdr 609 cd without using the remote control,as ive purchased a unit with out one and cant get it to record, thanks


Hi John
You should be able to record without the remote control; make sure you have a blank disc in place, then press the 'RECORD' button on the front; it should go into recording standby mode. When you want to start recording, press the button below the REC BALANCE buttons (the play/pause button, marked with a triangle and a II symbol) and this should get you going.
Try it and get back to me if not.
Hope it works!

Can't get it to record


I experienced this problem a long time ago, i believe that it was because i tried to use a normal data cd-rw but the unit only reads audio discs. It has to be a cd-rw for audio only (will say cd-rw audio on the disc, whereas if it is a data disc it will simply say cd-rw.) Hope this helps..

Wont record on blank pc disks!


I had the same problem and found that I was using the wrong type of CDs. If you look on the CD you have to use the CD that says Compact disc digital audio Recordable or Compact disc digital audio Rewrittable. After I used the Digital ones I could record on it. I then tried the CD on the PC and it worked. You can look on the top of the unit and see the information if you still have it. Hope this helps you.
