Question about Philips CDR785 3-Disc CD Recorder
I just got this horrible cdr 785 from ebay, before then i had got me self a whole bulk of recordable cd only to find out that they are NOT compactible , oh what a shame, i tried several different ones but none of them got it worked. POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM. thank God i've found the right cd for this product eventually. if you are having problems with this unit rejecting cd for your recordings THEN plea se try these Two, ....FUJI CD -R PRO 80min FOR AUDIO and VERBATIM MUSIC CD-R 80min, you can find this from A POUND SHOPS. These are cd - recordable for use with Audio recorders. it worked for me hope it work for you CHEER FELLAS

Maxell's audio cdr's still use the older dyes optimized for the slower speeds. Avoid the new 'Mr Audio' from Mr Data. From experience, all audio CDRW's are still using the slower speed / dye.
If the record side will not read a pressed / previously recorded CD it is more likely the laser is no longer emitting at the correct power. This can be adjusted by a service agent using philips' COMPair system but most repair agents won't touch units this old anymore.

I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.
As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).
Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.
