Toc error 14

On questions like this it would help if we knew the manual was or was not consulted.

And if it was NOT, why.

C14 / TOC Error The unit did not read the TOC information. Insert other discs.


"If you write data to a disc and leave the session open, the TOC -- which tells the CD player or CD-ROM drive where the tracks are -- is written into a separate area called the Program Memory Area, or PMA. CD recorders are the only devices that know to look at the PMA, which is why you can't see data in an open session on a standard playback device. CD players won't find any audio tracks, and CD-ROM drives won't see a data track. When the session is finalized, the TOC is written in the lead-in area, enabling other devices to recognize the disc.
(Something to try: write an audio track to a blank CD, and leave the session open. Put the disc in a CD player. Some players will deny the existence of the disc, some will spin the disc up to an incredible speed and won't even brake the spindle when you eject the disc, others will perform equally random acts. The TOC is important!)"

For sony rcd-w500c/w100 won't go to record mode.

Make sure you're using CD-R AUDIO or MUSIC blank discs. It won't record onto data discs.

Which cd-r audio do I buy.

when you buy cdr's to use with the recorder be sure to go and buy "cdr audio". You may have problems with certain brands. It really is hit or miss but Sony discs should be fine with this player but try to get a small number of cheaper disks and try to see what works well.

There is a small chance that one brand may sound better(or some people say) but I have never had one problem like this from one to another.

Sony RCD-500C I get a data disc message when pressing record.

You need to use CD-R Music or Audio blanks, not Data. It's part of the spec for home CD recorders to reject blank data disks.

I get a "Data Disc" message when I press record.

have you purchased the correct blank discs? sounds like you've inserted discs that can only be used on a PC. these players can only record onto blanks bearing the "compact disc digital audio" mark. these are for use on home audio recorders. hope this helps?

Invalid disc prompt,whenever i install a disc

This is a dedicated audio recorder. Therefore, you must use dedicated audio discs (not data discs). You can tell the difference as audio discs specify the recording time (usually 80mins) instead of data capacity (usually 700MB).

When you have the right disc inserted, press the record button & it will go into record standby, ready to record. First, set a level, then press record again, and you are recording.
