    My unit does the exact same thing. It worked just fine for a short while then quit recording from another source, radio, tape, etc...

    Now it won't even record from the other tray with a quality CD to copy from.

    I sure would like to find out if this unit can be put back in use.

You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs

Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)


"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:

CD's used to record on The RCA CDRW 120 RECORDER that is compatible with my computer for the Automation System.

You are finalizing the CD after recording? After finalization they should play in all but very old CD players.
