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 .

Hi, i had a Sony dvd /music centre with surround sound a different model and the dvd would not play any type of burnt dvd on it. It would play proper dvd's and music cd's . I don't know if its something Sony has built into its systems.
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.......
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
John~ check formats with dvd player can be found in mannual - then burn dvd to suit mp3 or mp4 would normally work~ you can go to Realplayer.com to get tool to download on pc to this job. also try Divx .com / utorret.com or if you can get a Silvercrest dvd player this can also play pc dvd.in may different formats.

try the disk on another console first m8 if that works the chances are you need to buy a new dvd rom for your unit the laser only have limited play time on theese consoles b4 they start to fail to read disk's all games systems are the same
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
