Question about Philips CDR880 CD Player
SOURCE: trouble with cdr 570 philips
Newer discs are made with different dyes. We no longer get philips discs in the UK but Maxell 80 min discs work great in my 570. Have you ever been able to use 80 min discs? Usually if a machine only accepts certain types of disc it means the laser's power output is reduced i.e it's worn out so it may be time to find a new machine unless you can get a supply of discs it does use OK.
'Mr Audio' discs from Mr Data should be avoided at all costs.I can only use them in my Sony machines.

I have a Phillips 775 CD Recorder, and can only get it to record using Maxell CD-R Music Pro brand blank discs. They usually come in packs of 10 and are in full-size jewel cases. Haven't bought any in awhile and am not sure about availability.Hope this helps.

I have the same problem too. Tried with, of course only audio cd, TDK (no-opc rate approx 80%), Philips (40/50% and sometimes not good quality on different readers). The best, i.e. less no-opc rate, I found are Sony Premium.
Sometimes it's ok if after no-opc you turn off and restart with test (play+stop+turn on).

There are a lot of forums which discuss OPC failure and it strikes every hardware maker and brand of media.
The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along.
"I don't buy expensive blanks. I buy modest quality blanks and watch
for sales so that I can them for about a dime a piece after the rebate
check comes in. If I have an OPC Fail message, I try another blank. If
I find that they consistently fail (about half a buck wasted) I move
the stack over to the computer (which seems to work fine with these)
and buy another stack of blanks of a different brand next time I see a
an interesting workaround:
"CDRW 5000 work around for OPC FAIL
Here's a work around for OPC FAIL on cdrw 5000 -
method 1: turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)
method 2: run OPC on an old cd that always works - after OPC passes, remove old cd and insert new CD (you only get 99 OPC runs per disc)
-or use a combination of the two methods
I've always used TDK and I recently bought a new batch and they stopped working. The old ones still work everytime. I don't know enough about the system to guess what the difference is.
side note: CDRW 2000 will finalise discs from the cdrw 5000 but not the other way around.
Hope that helps "

• Only audio CD-R/RW discs can be recorded with this unit. "Use Audio CD" will be displayed when a disc other than one
for use with audio such as a CD-R/RW disc for use with a personal computer or another type of disc is loaded. (See "Discs that Can Be Used with this Unit" on Page 5.)
• CD-R discs can be recorded to only once. The recorded information cannot be erased.
• The recorded information of CD-RW discs can be erased. When this disc has been finalized, erase after the finalization removal operation has been performed. (See "Cancellation of CD-RW disc finalizing" on Page 28.)
• Recording mistakes made with CD-R discs cannot be erased; therefore, it is recommended that a CD-RW disc be used until you are accustomed to the recording operation.
If you desire 74-minute blank disc just Google "cd-r audio 74". The unit will also use 800MB 80-minute CD's.
