I have emailed Sony with the same question, and they say there is no way of backing up the LH500 HDD, so if breaks down thats it! I've just plugged an Ipod into my stereo system - far better.

Toc error 14


On questions like this it would help if we knew the manual was or was not consulted.

And if it was NOT, why.

C14 / TOC Error The unit did not read the TOC information. Insert other discs.

http://www.cdrfaq.org/faq02.html#S2-19

[Extract]

"If you write data to a disc and leave the session open, the TOC -- which tells the CD player or CD-ROM drive where the tracks are -- is written into a separate area called the Program Memory Area, or PMA. CD recorders are the only devices that know to look at the PMA, which is why you can't see data in an open session on a standard playback device. CD players won't find any audio tracks, and CD-ROM drives won't see a data track. When the session is finalized, the TOC is written in the lead-in area, enabling other devices to recognize the disc.
(Something to try: write an audio track to a blank CD, and leave the session open. Put the disc in a CD player. Some players will deny the existence of the disc, some will spin the disc up to an incredible speed and won't even brake the spindle when you eject the disc, others will perform equally random acts. The TOC is important!)"

Sony CDP-CX450 Cd Player


Hi,

As in most current devices, absence of power (as in shortages/outages) simulates a reset. The reset reverts the unit back to factory defaults which of course does not have user configurations and settings.

A workaround perhaps would be with the use of a UPS as those used in computer systems.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

After years of working fine my Sony 5-disc CD recorder has suddenly decided that every disc is a "data disc." The music blanks that have always worked in the past are now being read as "data disc" when I...


Mine was doing the same thing. I even posted the same question. Then after reading through other questions, I found that the discs I was using were CD-R that would only record on my PC. They are Data Discs. There is a different kind of CD-R and it is for music only and they are marked CD-R MUSIC. The little compact disc symbol on the package should read recordable underneath. I had not used mine in awhile and forgot to look for that on the package. Now mine works, Hope yours does too.

Sony RCD-500C I get a data disc message when pressing record.


You need to use CD-R Music or Audio blanks, not Data. It's part of the spec for home CD recorders to reject blank data disks.

Error message "DATA DISC"


No No No and No again this disc issue makes me laugh. Look lasers are sensitive but after a while the power output level decreases to the point where the disc may still be able to be read but recording/finalizing is impossible.
Hmmm, I think I may have to point people to a link on this site as I've answered this question many times. However, here we go. As I previously stated the power is down on your laser specifically the recording laser. A potentiometer adjustment is required but this necessitates the drive mechanism with laser to be removed from the player. If you feel happy to do this, with the drive removed look on the underside of the laser unit and you will see two potentiometers (2 crosscut screw like objects). I don't know the layout of your unit but it's normally the pot on the right that needs to be adjusted clockwise by an eigth of a turn which increases the power output thus solving the issue completely. There's always a little bit of play in these things so it is safe to do this. Good luck

Cd tray opening and closing all the time


Dear friend, my sony dvd drive tray opens and closes itself, it is mostly a problem related to hardware. in my case I removed the IDE Data cable connected to the dvd drive and reconnected it again. now my dvd drive works well, I think the problem was the IDE data cable, may be a loose contact.due to this loose cantact,a jung signal goes to the dvd drive, which opens and closes the tray frequently without our knowledge.

Loading a CD


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.

Hope it may help you;
