Music CD does not play correctly

All my music CD's play well on my CD player except for one disc (original). This disc plays well on my computer and in my vehicle. When played on my player, the music comes out fine from 1 speaker, but the lyrics coming out of the other speaker has a metallic sound although I can understand the words. My player is almost 12 years old. Can you help?

SOURCE: intermitent audio

I had that happen before, one problem was my car had bad shocks or i hit a pothole in the road. The second time i had the volume up so loud the bass wass thumping the floor and it skips the CD. My question is, how lowd is the thign turned up? :P Some CD players load the data into a memory and then it plays from the memory till it needs more info. It maybe that the unit is not stable or the CD is not balanced right so it cant read the info at a consistant speed. The music maybe playing faster then it can read because of the vibrations. Is the disk clean? i know this may sound dumb but it is easy to over look. If the surface of the data side is so scratched up it may have problems reading the data quickly enough. Sometimes the coating can fall of the disk if you hold it in the light you can sometimes see spots threw the disk where the foil has been chipped off. The CD player could have a focus problem also, it could be damaged in shipping or have been dropped and it cant focus properly on the data. Do you have any other disks to try? a new one? one you never play?

SOURCE: `Sony CD player won't play burned discs

Many of the older Car CD Players will not play CD-R's or they may with static sounds behind the music. What you need to do is try using a different brand of cd-r disc. If this doesn't work then it means that you may need to replace the CD player because the model that you have may not be decoded in order to play CD-R, CD-RW, play MP3's or anything of that such.
Get back to me if this doesn't work I'll help you square it away.

SOURCE: New laserunit won't work

You seem confident enought to take it apart, have you tried cleaning the runners that the laser runs backward and forward on.
Some times they collect dirt/dust and the laser can't move smoothly so it jerks and skips.

Hello i have a Philips cdr 870. With every blank CD inserted, the display shows NO AUDIO. Pre recorded CDs play OK. Unable to record. I have recently aquired this machine and this is the first time I have...

You are probably inserting blank computer discs, eg 650 or 700mb rather than blank music CD-R or CD RW`s which this machine is designed to work with. The correct discs are labelled "music audio" or 80 minutes. You can only use these types of discs. Why? When these recorders first came out, it was a way of battling piracey in copying discs. I believe there is a "hack" to enable this player to use blank computer discs.

Casette to disc

to convert music from cassett to disk u need to connect the cassett player headphone jack / line out jack to ur PC/laptop mike / line in jack....then play the music and record it in a software(Nero Sound editor etc)
then once that's done save it as mp3 file on to ut PC and trf it to ur cd/disk....u can just copy it as mp3 or create a music cd using Nero...from the mp3 file
the difference is if u just copy the mp3 on to the cd then only a mp3 player/mp3 music system deck can play it... if it's created as a music cd then any cd player can play it....just like any music cd that u buy in the mkt...
a 700 mb disk can hold almost 7 to 10 hrs of music in mp3 format....
but a music disk can hold only 80 mins of music

Dvd-audio cd burning issue

If you are burning a "Data Disc" (the burning software should tell you or have you select it) then music will NOT work on a CD-player. It will only work in another PC.

Data disc is for files, pictures, videos, music that you want other COMPUTERS to be able to read and play.

If you want a music CD to work in a car or something like that it NEEDS to be burned as a music disc, not data.

Hope that helps.

Disney Princess CD Player will not play music

try cleaning the laser with a q-tip if the laser is dirty from finger prints or dust it won't be able to read the disc therefore won't play. Clean laser and if that doesn't work then the child may have damaged the player in a fashion that would be better to get him/her a new one.
