Obviously you first need to check that your connections are 'out' of the source and 'in' to your MD recorder. On most Sony's you press the menu button until 'REC LEVEL' appears in the display. Simply adjust with the AMS wheel to desired level. Note that when recording 'digitally' the record level is automatically set. Good luck.

Vinyl recording turntable


The Denon will act just like a standard tape recorder. It should have an audio in, for recording. If that socket is connected to the audio out of a tape socket on your receiver, the Denon will pick up the signals that are sent to your receiver from whatever source. All you have to do is follow the instructions for recording on the Denon then. If you have lost the user manual for it, it's free on-line.

Not recording anymore


After you press the 'record' button the Minidisc unit is still in "pause mode" - you can hear the music and see the meters move, but notice that the time isn't moving until you press "Play" - then it will start recording. Is the time changing when you go to play it back? You might have left the MD in 'pause' perhaps?

I can not get my Crosley CR248 Songwriter to Finalize when I try to transfer from cassette to cd. It keeps showing me FAIL....


I don't know this particular machine but here are some general comments.
Most CD recorders need you to press (and sometimes hold) the record button followed by the play button before tehy actually record anything (if you don't press the play button you will still hear sound via headphones etc. but no recording file will be created)
Does it record from vinyl records okay or is it just cassettes?
Are you using the correct sort of CD?
We use a Denon CD recorder and it only works with AUDIO CDs - computer data CDs or CDRWs will not work in it. Even if the Crossley will accept computer CDs it may require a particular format either +ve or -ve (labelled CDR+ or CDR-) to be compatible. Once you have tried finalising a disk and it has failed you cannot use the same disk again.

Jensen JTA 450 turntable skips?


Try moving the arm up to the end of the vinyl, if it does go till the end of the vinyl then try adjusting your counter weights, a penny will do, if it doesn't go till the end of your vinyl then there's a mechanical problem check any obstruction at the botton of your arm.

You have to set the INPUT to what you're using. Line level or Tape Level signal to IN jack on MD. Also makre sure switch is set to "Analog" input; crank LEVEL all the way clockwise, and it should take off.

How can I connect my CD-RW880 recorder to the


Make sure the phonograph is connected to the Phono Connectors. Hook up your CD recorder to the tape. The play connectors on the CD recorders can connect to the tape play connectors on your stereo. The record connectors on your CD recorder connect to the record outputs on the tape connectors on your stereo. You can also connect you CD recorder to the VCR connectors if you are using an audio tape as your source. All of the outputs and inputs are the same level except the phono.

Recording


It will record any line level source (CD, MD, tape, tuner). You can only record vinyl records if you have a phono pre-amp.

The best way to use a CD recorder is to use the "tape loop" on your amp/receiver. Does your amp/receiver have a "tape in" and a "tape out"? If it does you should connect your CD recorder to these in/outputs. That way, whatever your amp or receiver is set to listen to, is what you'll be recording.

Shout if you need more help!
