Re: formatting discs

Once the disc is FINALIZED, theres no way for the data to come off. If oyure burning from a computer, make sure you burn as DATA or AUDIO disk.......if the radio is MP3 compliant, then mp3 discs should work. The upside to mp3 discs is you can fit endless hours off music, but you loss sound quality from the compression.

CDs dont need to be "formatted" like hard drives or floppy discs. It's format is knows as red book, orange book......depending on the quality and manufacterer of the media.

If you have cheaper cds, like SONY, they can be problematic. Try TAIYO YUDEN or Microboards if you can get your hands on them.

Keep me posted.

I have a Sony Home Theatre System DAV-DZ370.The audio cd's play fine but DVD discs gets stalled also with some DVD audio discs.DivX seem to work fine.

Hi, I believe I know the problem having attempted to fix no less that a few dozen dvd players with similar problems. I would first try to clean the laser head with a dvd lens cleaner ( the kind with auto play and the little brushes actually on the disc.) Occasionally there may be foreign material partially obstructing the path of the laser beam causing playback for audio but not all dvd's-If that does not work I would say the dvd system has reached near the end of its life cycle ( this can be as little as a yr depending on how many total hours played and the manufacturer.) it can be the laser has gotten a little weak but more often than not the video digital to analogue has over heated just one to many times and is now on the fritz. I have never successfully repaired a dvd player that played music but not movies ( they're too cheap to buy these days to put so much effort into unfortunately-although as I said dirt can't be ruled out-I really had a game console that somehow had a dusty lens.) I hope this was of some use, thank you for choosing FixYa, write back to let us know if this helped or if we can be of further assistance,good luck-Prodzilla

That would depends entirely on the file format employed in its creation. If you can display the files on a PC try to determine what software will open it/them up and go Googling for whatever it needs.

My Sony disc player cdk-kia single disc goes wacky when it gets to the 10th track of any musical disc, All the tracks before that are ok.


The 9th track is the maximum length/strength your Sony disc player cdk-kia could read disc to play, since it is on all musical disc that this problem occur.

The lens of your Sony disc player cdk-kia is weak and could not read beyond that limit, all you need to do is get a lens cleaner to clean the lens and if that did not solve the problem, then you will need to change the lens on your Sony disc player cdk-kia because it is weak.

Take care.

While trying to put photos on cd-r it said that cd-r was not formatted. How do I format, so that I can put photos on?

Depends which operating system you use. The following is for XP so you might have to find the options for any other system. Try going to MY Computer and click the drive with the blank disc in. Then click file and see if format appears.

I am having problems playing back downloaded files.

Are the files actually .mp3 format? There are a few different compressed formats available now and some mp3 players etc are not compatible with these formats.
Older players (and some current ones) for instance will not play .wma files which are Windows Media Audio files.
