Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
I have this since 2000 and it used to work great. Used to use it a lot
too! Around 2003, I wasn't using it as much, and was moving. So I had
it professionally cleaned before warranty was over. After that, I
noticed CD would sometimes skip when playing. Didn't notice problems
when recording though. But almost stopped using it completely.
Last time I used it was around 2005 and last recording was before that. Still, it worked!
Now I tried to use it and whatever I put in it (Audio CD-R or commercial music CD), the system scans it for a long time, and front panel switches between "CD", "CD-R", "Data" and "CD-RW" before finally displaying "CHECK DISK" and not doing anything!
So it won't play, won't record, won't do anything!
Nothing major happened to the unit to explain why it suddenly stopped working.
I wish I could make it work without bringing it to a repair shop because I don't have the money. If I absolutely need to, I'd like to know how much it would cost (approx. of course, a small part would cost less than the whole electronic board).
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes your quite right, the solution to the problem is a new writer, although you have to get the same one if it's fitted internally to a notebook. You can update the firmware, thats not a problem, you may be getting confused with bios updates which are a knightmare. I assume you have tried the usual, uninstal and re install of the dvd drive, by uninstalling it in device manager on the cd/dvd drive line and click '+' sign, right click and uninstal, then restart pc to automatically install again. The cd recognition says that the drive capability to read and write dvd has corrupted andfailed, so really the only solution would be a new drive

You need to use an audio CDr, data or computer CDr's will not work in this machine. I don't know this specific machine, but usually you select the input, then 'rec type' eg manual,1 track or 1 disc,then press record to get into record pause,start your source,then press play on the unit to start recording. To finalize, you press finalize then either the play or rec button to start the finalize process.

Recently purchased a unit... You can imagine the joy when I found in Manual: Audio discs can only play if in .mpg or .wma formats! Yes, all the bells and whistles except the most basic of functions such as all common audio formats. Other portable $99 dvd player works with them.
