Teac GF-350 CD Shelf System

When we try to burn a cassette onto a CD it will not finalize. We have already sent one machine back because if wouldn't finalize. It will play on the Teac GF-350 unit but we can not play the CD on any other CD player. We bought a TEAC Cassette player to go with the Teac GF-350 CD shelf system. We bought the CD-R Music CD's to use to record on. Could it be that we have the wrong CD's. Please help with this because it is not much use to us as it is.

    We bought the disc that have Music CD-R. Is this the same thing as CD-R digital audio. We are not able to play the disc on another CD player. Could this be because we have the wrong disc.

    I will try to finalize it and write down what I see and get back to you.

    I checked to see what came up on the screen when I tried to finalize. It doesn't show fin--d nor does NO TOC and REC does not blink. I followed the directions exactly as it says. Could there be a step left out? I also checked the CD's and they are DIGITAL AUDIO CD-R.

    Yes it does say NO TOC CD-R

  • Sheila Avery Aug 29, 2007

    The last bit of information about turning off the machine made it finalize. I am able to play it on other CD players. Thanks so much for your help. If I have other problems I will get back in touch with you.

Firstly double check that the recordable discs you have bear the label "Digital Audio" on them as per the attached picture. Secondly what happens when you go through the finialise procedure in the manual? Do you see the ?FIn--d? display when you select the finialise button? Do you see ?NO TOC? and ?REC? indicators blinking at the next step? Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

    Music CD-R should be the same as Digital Audio CD-R. They will not play on another player until they are finalized.

    What happens when you try to finalize the disc?

    Do you see the "FIn--d" display when you select the finalize button?
    Do you see "NO TOC" and "REC" indicators blinking at the next step?

    Please say exactly what you see when you try to finalize the disc.

    Best regards,

    When you play the disc what disc type indicator do you see? Does it say in the top of the screen "NO TOC CD-R:"? As in the picture below?

    Thanks for the update, let's try a test!
    I apologize if this reads exactly as the instructions but please give it a try.

    First remove the disc you are trying to finalize and switch the unit off.

    Power on and select the CD source.

    Open the tray & load the disc but do not play it.

    Make sure the CD is stopped & press the finalize button, i hope it will now display "FIn--d".

    Press the Pay button.
    ?NO TOC? and ?REC? indicators should blink, and the remaining
    time for the finalizing operation appears in the display.

    When the operation has been finished, the NO TOC indicator should
    turns off and the display returns to the track/time display.
    During finalizing, no button works.
    Never turn the power off nor unplug the power cord.

    Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

    I think the "trick" is to unload the disc & then reload it. I have no idea why!

    Please rate the problem as solved.

    Best regards,

Trying to finalize a cd

Hi, This is just a guess but it may be worth a try. I have heard that Audio CD-Rs, which are the only media this machine will record onto, are famous for being finicky about being played on different kinds of CD readers. My suggestion is that you "rip" the Audio CD-R's content to your computer (in .wav or .MP3 format) and then make a copy of your album onto a reagular CD-R which is more likely to be played on any CD reader. Not sure if this'll work for you but it's worth a shot. Hope this helps.
