Question about Sony RCD-W10 2-Disc CD Recorder
My CDR W100 has worked absolutely perfectly for years however recently I am unable to record music as I get similar issues when trying to finalize and, more recently, don't get to the finalize stage as I am greeted with the error message "DATA DISC" when I try to record anything.
I have read other forums that all seem to suggest that this is due to the brand and/or type of blank CD I am using. I would appreciate any comment and advice.
No No No and No again this disc issue makes me laugh. Look lasers are sensitive but after a while the power output level decreases to the point where the disc may still be able to be read but recording/finalizing is impossible.
Hmmm, I think I may have to point people to a link on this site as I've answered this question many times. However, here we go. As I previously stated the power is down on your laser specifically the recording laser. A potentiometer adjustment is required but this necessitates the drive mechanism with laser to be removed from the player. If you feel happy to do this, with the drive removed look on the underside of the laser unit and you will see two potentiometers (2 crosscut screw like objects). I don't know the layout of your unit but it's normally the pot on the right that needs to be adjusted clockwise by an eigth of a turn which increases the power output thus solving the issue completely. There's always a little bit of play in these things so it is safe to do this. Good luck
