Re: CD won't finalize

I looked around at other reviews of the product and found that I was completely filling the cd and it couldn't finalize. If you give it some end space it will finalize if that is your problem. In other words if it is a 80 minute, cdr try 75 minutes.

Why can I not record to a CD from the "aux in" port?

Your question has not provided enough information. Are you trying to record vinyl onto a cd?
You cannot record onto a normal cd player. You need a cd burner(/recorder).
Vinyl turntables have a quieter output signal too so unless you have a device that has a phono (vinyl) input you will not be able to record your vinyl. If you have a laptop then the easiest way to record vinyl onto cd is to buy a soundcard that has phono input. You can then use free software (programme) like audacity to record your vinyl and covert it to a format (wav aiff or mp3) to burn to cd using iTunes or Windows Media player.

CD will not finalize

No-way should it take that length of time to finalise anything. My DVD recorder only takes about 3 minutes at the most to do a 4 hour disc! CD are only 80 minutes max. I suspect you have an electrical fault on the unit. I would take it to the nearest Crosley Repair place.

Need the manuel original lost or misplaced and can not find. want to record cassettes to cd's

Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW into the unit. Press the Function button on the remote (key above Vol+ on the bottom right of the remote) or the turntable itself (top left of the control panel) until the unit is in Phono mode. Then insert the pre-recorded cassette and press Play to advance the tape to where you wish to start recording. With the cassette playing, press the CD Record button (recording will flash on the display). The CD Record button is to the left of the fast reverse button on the unit; it is labeled Record on the remote and is below the Stop button. When one side of the cassette finishes playing, press Stop. Wait for the display to return to Phono. Then eject and turn over the cassette to play side 2 (if you want to record both sides of the tape). Press Play again to advance the tape and then press Record. When this side finishes, press Stop and then Finalize. Finalize is at the bottom left of the remote buttons and to the left of the stand by indicator on the turntable.

The manual is available at Crosley: . The direct link to the manual is . Recording a cassette to CD is on page 11 (page 12 of the pdf).

I hope this helps.

EZ Audio Converter,no sound in iTunes

Presuming you're on a Mac:
System Preferences -> Sound -> Input
Select "USB Audio CODEC"

Repeat all your recording you've done thus far. Worked here.

Hi, the crosley will no longer record onto any music cdr/rw. It will indicate that the cdr is blank-i know it is- then the zeros/record appears but no recording takes place. thanks if you can help.

I turned it off for two (2) hours - turned it on and it worked. Apparently this unit overheats after one session: one (1) cd-r per session then shut-down.
It is worth it, when it works, because my lps have no hiss when finalized.

Cdj issues

Are you getting error messages? If you hold down the pause button for 10 seconds on that model , you should get one.

Keep me posted.
