Re: koss cdr200 dual burner

I had an issue similar to this - I found if I didn't try to record from the internal player it worked ok. Does it say 'recover' when you try to record anytime? If you open the unit,you might see some capacitors on the power supply on the left hand side have leakedand the power is cutting in and out. 'Recover' usually comes up when a recording is interupted if you switch the unit off during recording.

I am unable to engage the record button, the display reads "unreadable or unrecordable disc"

There are several types of blank discs (CD-R, CD-RW). This unit only handles the CD-R discs. Unfortunately, this particular unit is even fussy about the CD-R discs it does accept. Even more unfortunately, there is no way to determine which will be accepted and which will not work. At this point, I can only advise you to try CD-R discs from a different manufacturer. Read the first review on Same issue I have had. Sorry and good luck.

Yes, but you, like I could use an owners manual for this thing, as it isn't as easy to operate as the Philips Audio CD recorders. Owner's manual anyone?
You can just press input select for analog, press record, wait then press 'play' to start recording.

Willthe b deck playback a normal cd? Sounds like your record laser is gone. It's a philips laser and they are known for it.

Cdr200 recording

Your CD recorder has 2 sets of phono (rca) sockets on the back. You probably have the outputs connected to your amplifier & speakers. All you need to do is connect your tape deck (or any source except for a turntable) to the inputs sockets on the back of the CD deck.

You might need to switch to external or analogue recording on the recorder.

If you are going to be doing a lot of this type of recording & want it set up more permanently, it might make sense to reconfigure your hi-fi. Shout if you want help with this!
