Re: 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.

My Yamaha CDR D651 appears to dislike new 50x maxell CD-r discs saying not audio. Works fine with 12x discs. What's wrong? Rowan

you probably have regular cd-r disks that cannot be recorded on in this unit. You can only use disks marked "DIGITAL AUDIO" for recording

Philips CDR870

I think there are several other possible solutions for the Philips CDR870 which will make it record more reliably, although using the "proper" Music Disc and cleaning the laser lens with an appropriate lens cleaning CD, seem to be the best ideas. Also, try wiping the blank or partially blank CD using a lintless microfiber cloth from the center outward to remove smudges and fingerprints. Several "failed" discs miraculously recorded after wiping.

If you're willing to "go under the hood", (you;ll need a #10 Torx screwdiver to remove the cover screws), you might try gently vacuuming the inside of the unit, brushing components gently with a soft camel hair brush to dislodge any dust that has accumulated; then gently sucking it into the vacuum cleaner. Make sure you've disconnected power to the CDR870 first! Trying to reach the laser lens itself involves surgical like dis-assembly of the sub-chasis and technical skills way beyond those of the average techie. I strongly DO NOT advise it!

Another possible solution is to let the unit "warm up" for about a half hour prior to recording, this may "cook" some electronic parts, and maybe change an internal condition to reduce the "OPCFAIL" problem.

You might also try cycling through "Input Source" by repeatedly toggling the Input Button (19) from DIG COAXIAL - DIG OPTICAL - ANALOG. Sometimes this allows the electronics to "wake up". It also may help to be playing an actual input signal into the unit while trying this.

I, too, have had frustrations with the unit using several brands of consumer and professional grade CD's. Occasionally, I have been successful in getting the unit to record music onto CD-ROM Data Discs when it's not supposed to. I have recorded onto Maxell, Sony, TDK and Discmakers (professional) blanks with varying results. FYI Radio Shack now stocks Verbatim brand discs for Music Recording (about $10 for 25 pack). Make sure CD Recordable Discs say "Music" or "Digital Audio" on the outside wrappings. I am a professional recording engineer, and now plan to see if the manufacturer, Philips Consumer Electronics in KY, can help.
Good Luck with this problem, I'll keep watching this site for other solutions.

Whenever i try to record, the machiine gives me a prompt to update. i looked through the manual and could find nothing about updating. i tried unplugging the unit to delete errant programming, but it...

"UPDATE" means it's updating the TOC after a recording action is stopped. It's NOT a prompt for you to do anything.

Page 12 of the defines it. Page 29 and 32 discusses it in the context of Recording and Text Editing.

My denon c550r won't record (unit is set on duel, input is coax, using correct disk) I press record the display appears as if going to record but it switches back to "blank disk"

first off, if machine is set to dual, then its trying to record from the other disc side. You need to have it set to your coax input. Also if your trying to copy a disc, not all of them allow that option. If this doesnt help, go to Can get help with any audio componants there

Why am I getting so many tracks when I record a meeting, we use a sony cd recorder

Unless you select Manual Track assignment the CD Recorder will assign a new track number whenever it senses extended silence (or what passes for it, sufficiently low input), typically 4 seconds.

Conversation would contain many instances that qualify as a new track.

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?

Deck A will not play/Deck B OK

Sounds like the CDR deck has an issue. When the disc comes out has it's position changed i.e has it been spun at all? Can you hear any motors moving? Does it work with any type of disc ( cd/cdr/cdrw)?

CD-R does not read disks anymore

I recently resolved CD-R recognition problems with the KLH CDR2000. It's absolutely imperative that you utilize CD-Rs bearing the logo "COMPACT DISC DIGITAL AUDIO RECORDABLE". These specific CD-Rs are designed for digital music recording with the KLH CDR2000 and other simular products. I have a Marantz CD20 that has the same CD-R requirement. I purchased a Memorex 50-pack from Best Buy for approximately $20.00 plus tax. The recordings with the Memorex CD-Rs are immpressive for the KLH CDR2000 given the obvious flaws in design. Again, when searching for compatible disc for the KLH CDR2000 look for the words "DIGITAL AUDIO" within the "COMPACT DISC RECORDABLE" logo.
