It will record any line level source (CD, MD, tape, tuner). You can only record vinyl records if you have a phono pre-amp.

The best way to use a CD recorder is to use the "tape loop" on your amp/receiver. Does your amp/receiver have a "tape in" and a "tape out"? If it does you should connect your CD recorder to these in/outputs. That way, whatever your amp or receiver is set to listen to, is what you'll be recording.

    Oh, and yes you can use CDR or CDRW but be aware that most CD players will not play CDRWs.

    And, the discs you use must be dedicated audio discs, not data ones.

Will not burn a CD

Have you checked which CDR media the device can use.
This may be as simple as using a CD-R rather than a CD+R or vice versa,
Also check if you may be burning to a CDRW or CDR.

What type of disc do you need to record, I bought DVD+RDL but it keeps ejecting

What are you trying to record on.First you need a recorder.You cannot just put a cd or dvd in a player to record.They are play back only.Now what media are you putting in your recorder.If it is a cdr it will not record on dvd.What you said is you are using a dvd+rdl which is a dvd+ media with double layer (meaning 9.4 gig instead of 4.7 data).Any dvd recorder can handle the dl media.Look on the facinfg of the carriage and it will tell tell you the media intened to be used. cdr/cdrw or dvd/dvd-dl.Hope this helps

Displays 'data disk' when i try to record live audio or duplicate a CD

it sounds to me like you are using a blank CDR/CDRW that you would use in a computer rather than a CDR Audio. The two types of discs are different and although you can use either in a PC to record on, on these "Home Burners", they will only record on the other type.
Try it .....

How can record?

This model is not capable of recording. It will play CDR and CDRW, this printed on the machine might have missled you to belive that it can record when in fact its just telling you the types of disks that can be played.

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
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.

Does anyoe know how to record from LP to cd?

Use your tape out, or another line out signal from your preamp.... if possible - OR Sometimes you can pull out some connectors on the back of your amp (a Metal joint kindathing ;), to break signalpath between preamp and poweramp if its an integrated amp -
Use preamp out signal to feed your cdr ( Main purpose is to equalize out, the RIAA correction on a record)
Have you tried to google your question ? Lots of fine guides out there!!!

Just bought this CDR 570 and not use yet.

Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -

Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section

To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!
