I hve a gemini cd 200 and the left deck stopped reading cd's. when i put in a disk the lcd reads no disk. What cuold be the problem.

Just like with any CD player, the optics have lifetimes. Either the optics are dirty and can not read the disk or they have failed. These units use KSS-213 optics assemblies from Sony, if I remember correctly. These can be purchased for around $25. Any one with audio repair experience should be able to replace them for you.

CD player fails to read CDs

It's likely it's dirt on the CD lens. You can try cleaning it with a lens cleaning disc. But if the lens has been damaged it will never read the disc again, no matter how many times it is cleaned.

Ripping problems


this could be several things.
1:) the console does not recognise or support the format, in which the cds are being ripped in. i.e WAV/Mpeg3/Avi et,c.
2:) The disk is not being Finalized ( session ended Table-Of-Contents not Written )
3:) The console does not like the type of media/cd/dvd you are using.

thankyou for using Fixya.

Dvd recording

I had the same problem and spent some time looking up this issue. I have a sony dvd player and it seems to have trouble reading almost any burnt dvd or cd. I have read that sonys seem to prefer the cheap dvds and cds for burning. It seems the cheap'O dvd players play burnt dvds and cds better that the nice ones, go figure.

There is more info out there about making sure to burn dvds and cds in the correct format.
You can try different burning software that has more options than just vista.
If you are creating a dvd from a movie file such as an avi or mpeg, please explain more on what you are doing and trying to accomplish.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds

Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
