Cdr775 New !!!

I have had this unit for several years but now I want to use it to make and preserve some records and 8 track cassettes for my wife. I would like to know if I can made a CD recording from the headphone jack on the old RCA stereo unit direct to my new Philips CDR775 ?

I see " PLEASE ENTER A VALID PRODUCT" at the bottom of this form. The numbers on the back of the Philips unit are CDR775/17.

    I don't understand how to use a microphone to record stereo from a 8 Track Player as well as a phonograph. Do you propose to attach the microphone to the CDR775 ?
    Thanks !!!

    I want to connect from the headphone jack on the stereo to my Philips CDR775/17. Willthis work ?

  • aggrivated Feb 22, 2008

    On the back of my RCA Stereo Console are a group of tape IN and tape OUT jacks. Can I use the tape out jack to record some 8 track tapes to my CD recorder, and can I use the headphone jack on the RCA unit to record both the tapes and phonograph records ? I can monitot both with the headphones.

Hi,

Just buy a microphone connect it to the player to record.
You will also need a headphone to hear.But there are few headphones which also have a mic with them so you don't need to buy a microphone seperately.
Ex: in a walkman you only have a headphone to hear where as in some headphone's you have a mic cum headphone..

So if you buy this headphone cum mike you will have two jacks one will be green and the other will be pink or orange.You can connect them to the player as well.

Goodluck..

    Sure, using tape out is much better than using your headphone plug

  • Ginko
    Ginko Feb 22, 2008

    on the other end you should connect it to the audio in plugs in your cdr

    Resuming:

    If you can use tape out from RCA unit into audio in at the back of CDR.

    otherwise use headphones jack from RCA into audio in on CDR



    Finally, if you do not have alternative use headphones out from RCA into ext. mic. plug on CDR, but this may not work properly

    I suggest you not to monitor it connecting headphones in the middle of this. Better to monitor it listening to cdr audio out or headphones from cdr while recording

What is the difference between a cassette and an 8-track?


8 tracks are older, much bigger, and have a single reel that runs in one direction. it is more commonly used today in recording studios. A cassette is like a mini- 8 track, but it uses two reels, can go in both directions, and can fit more than 8 tracks on one tape. Also the cassette is magnetic

I consistantly get an update message after trying to record disc to disc as little as one track why?


That is best discussed with the Philips support people as there could be a reset procedure. I have never heard of this but you may have caused the unit to enter a different mode by doing an overburn attempt.

How can i download my cassettes to my computer


If you want to be fancy, a company called ION makes a cassette player that plugs into a USB port on your computer. You can look at it here. The unit comes with software to capture the audio as you play your tapes.

You can also connect the tape player you already have to your computer's line-in audio jack. You'll need a cable with a 1/8-inch mini stereo plug at one end to fit the computer, and the appropriate plug(s) at the other end for the cassette player. If you use a boombox or other portable deck, the cable will need the same mini stereo plug and you can use the headphone jack. For a component cassette deck you'll need RCA plugs. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. With Audacity, you have tools to process the sound after it's in your computer to split tracks, add effects if you want, and to try cleaning up hiss or other quality problems. It's a great way to preserve tapes with voices of family members!

I have a Phillips CDR 775 2 -disc cd recorder and my track time is automatically set to 20 seconds. How do I increase this time per track? Also, I cannot seem to get the auto track to work when...


It's all in the manual...

20 seconds is the amount of digital 'silence' the machine will let pass during recording before it marks a new track. t will Pause and wait one minute for a digital signal to resume. (Page 21)

On digital copying it will automatically increment track numbers as the source advances.

For analog sources you should switch Auto Track to OFF and manually press Track as applicable. (Page 28)

Tascam 488 mk II recording problems


Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged. Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head. It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes. Give it a try and see!
