Turn the power off and back on at the mains. With the machine now in standby, press and hold the "Play Mode" and "Minidisc Play/Pause" buttons together. The machine will enter test mode and the disc should eject. Switch the power on and off again at the mains and the machine should be back to normal.

TOC light flashing


Let the recorder finish writing your recording from the memory to the disc. Depending on length it is still working and needs time to finish. Don't try to mess with it when it is writing to the disc.

Toc not writing


I was going to note that when you first turn the MD recorder on is when it will write the TOC for the disc - so even if you turn it on and press eject, it is smart enough to write a TOC first, then eject the disc. Good find on the battery loss.

SONY MDS JE 530. (C14) Toc error.


Your owners manual (you DID read your owners manual, right?) says the machine cannot read the TOC on the disc.

It might be a disc problem and it might be a deck problem?

Have you tried a different minidisc?

Have you changed any of the SET-UP settings? Take a look at them, too.

I have just put a blank disc into my sony mds s40 to record but now nothing works on the player....i just keep getting a small red flashing toc, i've tried unplugging from mains then re connecting but...


You may have the disc shutter closed preventing recording. You should never interrupt the recorder when it is trying to write to disc, you probably corrupted the table of contents (TOC) on the disc and need to reformat it to use it again.
If your deck is older you may have worn out the recording heads preventing it from writing to the disc in the worst case.

My MD-MS702 gave me very good service. Unfortunately it was not used for five to six years and now when i switch it on after full battery charging I get TOC error on all of my recorded discs. SOS, as I am...


Hi,

According to you You don't have use your disk play for a huge time, so that it may damaged or lens became dirty.

You can clear the lens with lens cleaner (clear the optical head).

check the battery was properly charged or working.

Check the disk moved properly.

To prevent the disk erase or damage slide the accidental erase prevention tab.

You can show it to the Technician.

Suddenly the record button won't work...it just won't depress or light up...it has always work so well. Can you tell me what the problem is?


check your disc - do you have the little tab slide over to prevent recording? (like a cassette has on the top)? Also, very important with MiniDiscs, or home CD recorders, when you press STOP, you still need power for another 30 seconds or so for the unit to write the TOC - table of contents. Without the TOC, your disc cannot find where anything is. So , make sure you have a FRESH battery and/or AC adapter when recording. Try a new blank disk with fresh batteries, okay?

Kenwood MD plays ok but recordings fail to play; U TOC error?


Without a decent Table Of Contents, your MiniDisc will NOT work, as you've found out. Does it matter what brand of MD you use? I would record it at "1X" and NOT 4x speed too. Try erasing a blank minidisc first and then shut off the unit and then turn it back on and see if the TOC works. Try adding a title, then turn it off and back on. Then try the CD to MD.

What does TOC writing mean on my sony mini hif-fi


TOC(Table of Contents) Information referring to, for example, the table of contents, total numbers, total names, playing time, time, date, data position etc. When a new recording is made on the MiniDisc, the new information is updated.found this on a web site

TOC ERRORa


When you FINISH recording, the Minidisc recorder Writes the TOC (Table of Contents) - so you see it flashing TOC or Update when you finish recording - you need to Leave POWER ON and have the unit on for about 30 seconds for it to finish this. IF you don't, the unit doesn't know where to find the files since there is no TOC. Try a Sony home unit - you might get one more shot at it working with that.

Spontaneous MD erasure


Well, depending how the content was recorded, there may be a slim chance to recover the audio. To me it looks like TOC was not written successfully, effectively deleting the TOC.
You can try TOC cloning with this 'blank' MD using another MD player, but your track markers will be lost during the cloning. If it works, at best you will end up with ONE long track. Then you can edit and reset your track markers.

It may be also be a good idea, to try the JE440 carefully with junk content to make sure it still works ok when writing TOC. You may have an intermittent problem too. I'd be very careful editing MD in this unit until it has been confirmed the TOC writing works ok. You may want to check the over-write head assembly and the cable that connects it. Sometimes these cables develop hairline cracks causing intermittend write action.

Check out www.minidisc.org forum for TOC cloning.

Good luck recovering your audio.
