I can confirm Dave629's solution: I just bought one of these machines and couldn't get it to record on either a cd-rw or a standard computer-grade cd-r. I got the same message as kapone_c. After reading Dave629's post, I popped in a blank cd-r "music" cd (the brand was "Maxell CR-R Music Pro") and it recorded just fine. Thanks, Dave629!

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..

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.

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.

Yes. Iif you get an audio CD recorder like a Pioneer PDR-509, HHB-30, for example, you can record from any number of sources onto a CD in as many sessions as you like until you finalize it.

Pause/resume function in analogue, manual recording mode


This player has essentially the same guts as my Pioneer PDR-509, so this is what it means...

'Repair' means the player lost power in mid-recording without commiting the track memory to a table of contents. It would likely take up to 40 minutes for the player to reconstruct it from the disk.

There is NO reason the player need be turned off (if that's where it took you) for a track pause.

Just press Pause, flip the LP over and hit Play or Pause again when you wish to continue recording.

Perhaps you don't know how to Finalize the disc either. It's not that intuitive. Press Finalize, after a while it will display a time, like 4:07. That means how long it will take to do the operation. Now press Pause and it will count down to 0:00 and be done. Then you can play it on any other CD player.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

How do i hook up my tascam 414 portastudio to my PC??


Assuming you want to keep your recordings at the highest possible quality, wouldn't it also work if you had an outboard component CD recorder? That way you retain the highest resolution at the first analog-digital step and once it's on CD you can rip to your heart's content or run it through the mixer again.

I have a Pioneer Elite PDR-509 that I have used for years. There are several 'professional' decks made by Tascam, Marantz, HHB and others that add the ability to use vanilla CDR's and CDR/W's instead of CDR-Audio and CDR-A-R/W media as mine uses and some can defeat the SCMS codes so you can do digital-digital multiple generation copies. Home audio CD Recorders will only digitally copy a first-generation digital original, unless the source was was made on a PC. Then it's always considered first-generation. The cost of the media isn't that much different these days. A standalone CD Recorder would also let you digitize those LP's and tapes you have hanging around or record Live through your mixer to CD. How about that!!!

There are plenty of them on eBay cheap and I'm still looking for the right one in case mine should ever decide to die. I see 7 pro models right now on eBay. I'd look for one that has Coaxial Digital inputs and outputs as well as Optical ones.

As for hooking up your Tascam, that would depend a lot on what sound processing software and soundcard you have - not my strong suit as I still do everything in the analog domain prior to cutting the CD and then ripping it to MP3 for portability and fast access. The physical hookup would be Line Out to Line In. After that it's all software.
