Look at the "back" of the device.
You'll see 40 pins (2 rows of 20 pins), 6 pins (2 rows of 3 pins), and 1 row of 4 pins.

The 40-pins is the "data" connection -- note that there is a "notch" centered in the plastic above the pins -- to ensure that the ribbon-cable can only be connected the _correct_ way.

The 4-pins is the "power" connection, note that 2 corners are beveled, again to ensure that the power-connector only fits in the _correct_ way.

The 6-pins are labelled: MA(ster) & SL(ave) & C(able)S(elect).
Move the small jumper to the 2 'CS' pins.

With the computer turned-off, connect the "data" and "power" cables.

Windows should "detect" this "new hardware", without needing a CD, and fully install the device.

The Disk Tray will not open (TDK DED 440 DVD driver)

The lubrication inside your device may be insufficient or some mechanical problem has occurred inside preventing the device to open. Now, look at a very "small hole" near the Tray's front cover. If you see it, get a very small pin or even a needle to fit to that small hole. Now, press the "open" button in your device and then push that pin or needle in the hole at the same time to help the device to open.

Tdk da 5700 not recording

Cleaning will not help if it plays fine and does not record.

The previous owner was right, those can only record on "Music CD-R or Audio CD-R" . If it does not have that printed on the disc, it willnot record with it. many people think that a CD-R they use in the computer will work, but they won't. So make sure you are not using a CD-R meant for a computer.

Try using Sony, they work good for me on most all recorders I repair.

If that does not work, you may just need it to be serviced, or take it back to the guy you bought it from and get your money back. He sold you a bad recorder. They are very exspensive to repair most of the time.

Sorry I did not have better news, good luck and let me know if you need any more help.

I cannot produce a finalized music cd able to be hear on regular cd player

the .wav file has to be converted to .mp3 or .cda prior to burning in order to hear it in a regular cd player. Those applications have the ability to turn .mp3, and .wma to .cda format, which is what normal cd players read but they lack the ability to convert .wav to .cda

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' !!
