"Bad Disc" message when reading a disc with JPEG files

When I put a CD or DVD with JPEG files on it into my new Onkyo DV-CP704 DVD player, a "Bad Disc" message appears. The only reason for this, according the manual, is a "dirty disc." This is not the problem. The discs are brand new and not dirty. What else could be causing the "Bad disc" message?

Re: "Bad Disc" message when reading a disc with JPEG...


To my understanding the picture files must be:
1. arranged inside a folder (not in the root directory);
2. must end with a file name extension of ".jpg" or ".JPG" but not "JPEG"; and
3. File size must not exceed 5Mb.

In some instances, the speed or rate when the DVDs were burned could affect compatibility. Likewise DVD-R finalization, too few files inside the folder/disc.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. It might be of further help if you can also post brand/model of the DVD burner and brand/specs of your blank DVD-Rs (1X-6X).

Good luck and kind regards.

Similar Issue happen to one of my client what we have done is putting the JPEG files into folders (Not Subfolder). It worked well however some JPEG images being skipped if the size is unusual. JPEG images will appear as tracks. Hope this will be helpful. If issue persist please post once more. Also let me know if WMA files are being played.

Good Luck

My Onkyo DV-CP704 randomly stop playing, and switching DVD's

I recently had a similar problem with my Onkyo DV-CP706...the "DVD mechanism" part was bad. I sent the unit to the ABL Electronics in Michigan and they fixed it. They are an authorized Onkyo repair center. If you're still under warranty they'll fix it for free. My unit was not, but I opted to fix it rather than purchase a new one. They will clean your unit, inspect it for other potential problems, and it will come back to you better than it was when it was new from the store.

I had a similar problem with Onkyo DV-CP706--it would play CD's but wouldn't play or recognize DVD's. Looking at other people with Onkyo problems, it looks like this is the most common part to fail on their DVD players. I had mine fixed by an authorized Onkyo repair center, ABL Electronics, located in Michigan. They said a part called "DVD Mechanism" was bad. They replaced that part, cleaned the machine and ran diagnostic checks for other problems, then sent it back to me. It now works perfectly and makes less noise than it did when it was new. If your Onkyo unit is still under the limited warranty, they will fix it for you for free. Mine wasn't, so it ended up costing just a little less than buying a new machine, but I feel like it was worth it. You never know what you'll get with a new machine, especially if you buy online.

Cd drive

Try using a DISC cleaner because sometimes the cd drive is dirty that's why you have that problem.

Shuts off after a loud sound

Hmmm...not sure but sounds like the vibration from the loud sound is causing the disk to jump. Not sure why that would power it off, but I think your thought to junk it sounds reasonable.

the play head of your device known as the ''lens'' is either dirty or bad thats why its selecting disc,try clean it with lens cleaner,if it still does the same thing call your technician,and tell him to change the lens for you.if he does the right thing ,it will work perfectly well.
