The NAD T-550 doesn't seem to be willing to play CD-Rs. Is there any update or adjustment that can be done that will allow it to do this?

Best bet to go to their website, support, enter you model number and see if a firmware update is available.

NAD T532 probem

CD and DVD disks use a different set of optics for each type of operation. Some units have a different laser for the different format types.

The fault could be mechanical alignment, calibration, or a failure in the signal and or processor path. These types of faults are impossible to guess at.

If the unit is under warranty, contact the dealer to find out how to get it serviced. If out of warranty it may not be feasible to service.

"check disc"

I had a problem with my T531 similar to this and found that the area around the lens focus area was totally covered in dust/fluff as though it we acting as a "dirt magnet" every where else inside was clean (could this be a unforseen problem in the design?) once carefully cleaned the unit worked well finding discs and playing like when it was new.

Hope this helps

Cannot play dvds

well my knowledge on dvd is not as good as I want it to bes. But, check the small print in your manual of the unit and see if it supports the formats of the dvds you are using. I know I used to get certain music cdr and burn cds on them and the cd player I had would not take certain cds. I had to see in the manual to see what the problem was and it had to be a good quality of cdrs and certain formats before it would play them. Wish I had a better answer for ya but that is the best I can do for ya. oh yeah check with some of the techs at best buy or circuit city. They have technicians in there that can probably tell ya. Make sure you have what type and model number of the unit you have and what type of dvds you have been using.

Reads CD's but not DVD's

Hi I responded to Parisica's problem, so you have read the "bad news" already. All I can add, is that we see your problem quite often, and without spouting a bunch of tech jargon, lets just say it is easier for the laser to read Cd's than DVD's, so quite often when the laser begins to fail, DVD's will no longer play, but Cd's are fine. I'm not an expert on your model, but Parisica mentions a menu setting that turns DVD video on & off, which may be worth checking, and also cleaning may help, as a dirty laser lense can give the same symptoms as a weak laser. I don't want to get your hopes up, 2-3 years of service can certainly be long enough for laser problems, depending on how much you used it. Good Luck!
