FAILURE OF CD READ/WRITE UNIT SONYCD-RWCRX140E

The unit fails to play back recently burnt discs , other music systems will not play them either . The discs are of the printable type . I have tried blank discs from another pack , but still no good . The drive does work however with re-writable discs , both writing and reading . When I load a pre-recorded music cd, the drive sounds as if it is hunting back and forth across the disc for a start, but does not find one . I have tried un-installing and re-installing the driver , but it makes no difference . There does not appear to be an update for this driver . The drive is approx 8 years old , and the system was originally windiws 98se , but has been windows xp sp2 for about a year , with no drive problems until now . Is it time time replace the drive unit , and with what ?or is there something else to diagnose ? Look forward to your reply , cheers , Tony . PLEASE NOTE , I HAVE HAD TO PUT A DIFFERENT PRODUCT MODEL IN THE PRODUCT BOX TO GET THIS MESSAGE ACCEPTED , AS MY MODEL...SONYCD-RWCRX140E DOES NOT EXIST ON THE LIST .

Why does my sony DVP display "No Disc" for every disc; when they play fine in any other player?


Sony tend to have a notorious disc lasers... couple of things you might want to try..

1. clean the lens using a standard Lens cleaning CD.
2. Try playing a CD (music) instead of DVD (if this works...it is likely that the lens is not reading DVD)

Hello.....I have a unit similar to yours...and I never had that ptoblem...These units are cool and I love mine...but the cassette players are generally basic units...When you record are you listening to the music at the same time so that you know what's going on?....Ok....When you start the recording process....and you see the disc is rcording...and the cassette finished playing one side...you PAUSE the cd....Flip the tape....press the Pause again to restart the cd...I've never saw one of these types of uits with auto reverse...you have to flip the tape manualy...if you don't...you will only record half of the music....I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.......

Dvd disc not reading


Is it just that disk or are all the discs not reading?? If it is just that disc try cleaning the disc with a lint free soft towel. Also is the disc a factory dvd or a burnt copy of media. Some dvd players will not play certain re-write discs some play DVD-R and some play DVD+R and some will play both ... good luck

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.


then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.

WON'T PLAY BURN DVD'S


There are two main families of DVD's, the minus (DVD-R/RW) and the plus (DVD+R/W). The most popular is the minus and almost all players can access this types. The newer and better DVD (plus) is not as popular like the minus. SOme players will not be able to read the plus. Check the DVD that you used, if it is DVD+R, try to use DVD-R
