Question about Sony SA-VA7 Shelf System

Trouble reading data on a CD

I put a few picture files on a CD-R so I could save them on a different computer. I can see the files on the computer in my room but when I try to put them on the computer downstairs, it does not even let me access the CD. Audio CDs work just fine though.

Hi There,

When you write to a CD by storing photos etc you need to take
another step before any other CD reader can access the data you have stored.

When you wrote to the CD originally you will have used a prioprietry software, along with that software there will be another menu line that says click here to make this CD readable by other computers.

I dont know what software you used to write to the CD but I suggest that you have a look for this text line on the menu to guide you thru this excercise..
Cheers From YUBEUT

Bang and olufsen beosound 3000 does not read cd and loading stops. Can you help? Thanks


I never had like that. But "normally" there may be two reasons: CD fault or control board fault. Sometime main control keeps memorized wrong data and (in my Ouverture) CD unit simply is not responding and not loading - standing still. No way to move on except plugging off the power, press CD start on remote with no power, plug in power and try again. It clears bad data. I suspect it happened few times when I stopped CD player by remote or local main switch off.

Can music be transferred to computer and then be burned to cd


(Yes) What do you mean by transferred to computer? A stream (music play like a radio) a Download (a file saved to your computer) to record a stream to a audio cd recorder is easy. You need a cable with a 3.5m plug one end and 2 RCA plugs on the other end (red and white plug) Use the plug that looks like a headphone plug, plug that into the computer headphone or speakers and the others into your stereo red into the red hole and white into the white hole choose (AUX) now play the music from your pc you should hear it playing out from your stereo. Your all set. (have fun)

A download: A music file is stored on your computer. When you choose to download a file always remember what folder it is in! for a mp3 file you can use windows media player to burn cd. (must have a CD or DVD Burner installed in your computer to do this) if not don't fret just see above it will also work on downloaded music.

I created a mp3 data cd using cd-r and it doesnt play. I create a music mp3 and it plays with no problem. What am I doing wrong?


Many cd players do not have the capability to play mp3 data files. They do not have the processing capacity of a computer, which reads data mp3 and converts it on the fly as easily as other data files used to install software, etc.
If you know your cd player to be mp3 compatible, try burning at a slower speed, like 1/2 the speed the burner is rated for, or less (like 4-8x), to see if the cd player will read that disc. If that doesn't work, try another media brand. Some cds are of inferior quality and won't write well enough for mp3 data files to be read well by all players.

I ripped a CD on my computer than tried to play it on the GPX it wouldn't play but the screen said "File". What does that mean and can I get it to play a ripped CD?


You have to burn a CD in "CD/Music" format. You can't burn it as a data CD. Which just sucks cuz doing it in CD format, you can only fit 15 or so songs on each CD. And I wasted a CD finding that out.

My recently made music CD will NOT play in our Philips FW-R7. It will play on all our computers and DVD players. The message is "Wrong Disc." Other music CD we've made do play fine in the FW-R7.


This is common with burned cd's they have trouble playing in different sets. Do prerecorder cd's play fine in your philips? If those are having trouble also you could improve it's playability possibly with a cleaning of the opu. Optical pick up.

CD malfunction


It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.

Could be the classic dirty lense syndrom... If you know how to get to it, expose the laser lense, and gently brush any accumulated dust/dirt from it. There might be multiple slots, but only 1 lense. If you have a cd cleaner available you might want to try that out first, it doesn't always do the same job, but it can save you the risk of something else happening when you open it up. Good luck
