Question about Denon CDR-M30 CD Recorder

1 Answer

Faulty Denon CD player


The problem I have is with a Denon F88 cd player which to the untrained eye looks most like the cdr-m30 (I couldn't see a link to the F88)

The issue is that the cd player takes a while to engage playing the cd and makes a whirring noise for around 4 seconds before it gets going. The noise also kicks in again at the end of the cd and will keep going until I open the CD or switch off the power.
Any guidance would be appreciated

Re: Faulty Denon CD player

The sled motor sounds like it's malfunctioning and not stopping winding at the beginning or end of the disc. There should be a detector switch to stop this. Might just need a good clean.

I don't founr cd 74 mn 650mb, what use the DENON CDR M30 ??

If I understand your question, it can play any kind of music CD but it can only record on CDR-Audio or CDR-Music discs only.

• Only audio CD-R/RW discs can be recorded with this unit. "Use Audio CD" will be displayed when a disc other than one

for use with audio such as a CD-R/RW disc for use with a personal computer or another type of disc is loaded. (See "Discs that Can Be Used with this Unit" on Page 5.)

• CD-R discs can be recorded to only once. The recorded information cannot be erased.

• The recorded information of CD-RW discs can be erased. When this disc has been finalized, erase after the finalization removal operation has been performed. (See "Cancellation of CD-RW disc finalizing" on Page 28.)

• Recording mistakes made with CD-R discs cannot be erased; therefore, it is recommended that a CD-RW disc be used until you are accustomed to the recording operation.

If you desire 74-minute blank disc just Google "cd-r audio 74". The unit will also use 800MB 80-minute CD's.

I have the Denon CDR-W1500 recorder and the recording side no longer functions. It doesn't have that many hours of use. The tray doesn't recognize a blank cd but both sides will playback discs. Your help...

Your original post said it was blank discs that didn't work.

Now it's ALL discs including pre-recorderd ones. THAT changes things considerably.

Is it audibly rotating the disc once it's loaded?

Try looking into the lens (power off) with a magnifying glass. If you see any damage you will need to replace the lazer/lens section as the lens will never be able to read the disc.
If it's clear it's more likely to be an electronic fault.

No Aux on a UD-M30

We had the same problem, found that if you plug your device into "line 2 in" on the back and select tape it worked for our ipod. We had to turn the volume right up on the ipod to hear it though

Disc reading

How confident are you at opening it up? And where are you? If it can get table of contents info it could be gummed up grease on the laser sled.
