Question about Sony MDS-JE520 Mini Disc Player
Posted by Anonymous on
The input source you have selected is not working. If digital it might be a copy guarded source which the deck cannot read...
If you get fancier and are trying to record the optical output from a newer device like a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver although the signal will go through the MD deck cannot decode the advanced optical signal. There are adaptor boxes on eBay which decode 5.1 & 7.1 optical signals to an optical signal the older MD can read and record from.
Try selecting another source like analog RCA. The digital stuff I mentioned applies to digital RCA and Optical Cables like toslink.

Usually, you are trying to record DIGITALLY from a source that has 'copy protection'. Try recording thru the Analog jacks, and you shouldn't have this problem.

SOURCE: i'm trying to record on
"The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder."
That is completely wrong. DIN UNLOCK means what the first poster said - that you are trying to make a digital copy of a digital copy. You cannot (for legal reasons). Record via analog.
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN YOUR LENS WITH ALCOHOL AND A Q-TIP. It has nothing whatsoever to do with your problem and you may well damage or destroy the lens or the transport.
