Question about Philips CDR802 3-Disc CD Recorder
I record tracks off a weekly show and had almost filled a disc when it had a problem recording and kind of froze up. I switched it off and back on again and now it can't read any of the disc, it just says disc error. This happened before & i managed to get my yahoo music jukebox 2 read the disc so i cud rip everything i had recorded so far and remake the disc but even that isn't reading it this time! :(

SOURCE: won't record
I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.
As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).
Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

this depends on what make of disc mostly the philips machines only work with their own brand of disc try placing an original disc if thats ok then its the blank cd that you are useing got to be philips brand

It's all in the manual...
20 seconds is the amount of digital 'silence' the machine will let pass during recording before it marks a new track. t will Pause and wait one minute for a digital signal to resume. (Page 21)
On digital copying it will automatically increment track numbers as the source advances.
For analog sources you should switch Auto Track to OFF and manually press Track as applicable. (Page 28)

Because the disc was left in the unit after recording and the power plug was unplugged later, the track number and
recording time data have been cleared without being recorded on the disc.
While "REPAIR" is displayed, the track number and recording time data are repaired by tracking the recorded area. Further
recording or finalization is possible when the display returns to the previous condition. Tracking the recorded area takes about 40 minutes if the disc has been fully recorded.
