Problem playing CD from USA

Hi, i bought a CD from off ebay, a CD made in the USA, and my new Sony HiFi system refuses to play it, Windows Media player refuses to play it and PowerDVD will play it but its sounds like an old !950's recording. No visible marks on the CD.

Any idea what the problem could be?

CD does not play. I ran a cleaning disc, still does not play

Cleaning discs aren't 100% effective. It's possible the pickup lens is still dirty and not able to read the CD. The best way to clean the lens is by gently swabbing with a cleaning solution designed for cleaning them, but it's not always easy to get clear access to the lens.

The laser may just be too weak now to work reliably. Their power does drop with aging and use. The pickup is replaceable, but part cost and labor may make it just as economical to buy a new player. (I fix these things, and I just bought a new player myself. It was only $20 more than a new pickup would have cost for my old Sony. A seller on eBay had a great deal on new 5-disc Onkyos.)

Also, is this playing any CDs at all? Some older players don't work well, if at all, with burned discs. If you're having trouble playing home-made discs but commercial ones play, this may be why. (It's also a symptom of pickup failure, though, so that may still be the trouble.)

Hi there i have cdr600 i recently bought from ebay but the problem is when i put blank cd in recorder it says audio cd error plz solve my problem and alo let me know how can i pay for one question and how...

You have to use blank CD-R Audio or CD-R Music CD's in a home CD recorder. It will not record on data disc media but it will play almost any CD with CD Audio music on it.

Then register with and download the manual.

My rowe ami cd100 plays but there is no bass only

Hi Easiest way to check if its the amp. Is to disconnect the internal speakers the connect a standard hifi speaker to it .If that plays fine its not your amp If it is your amp and your on a budget and the repair could be costly. Many times ive refitted a yamaha 250 watt hifi separate amp to just the cd out cable coming out of the cd player inside machines. Easy to do and only costs around £50 for a second hand one. Instead of £300 for the original. Worked for me many times and my customers have been very happy. Hope this helps.

Cheers Dandares

MP3 CD not recognized by Sony-Error "No Disc"

the mp3 files have to be recorded in the ISO9660 level 1 or level 2 format, or the Joliet or Romeo in the expansion format.
Please note this is verbatim, straight from my Sony manual.
For details of your recording format you will have to see your converter's help or configuration files.

I have two different music systems, need answers for if possible,

On the no disc messages, try a cd or dvd lens cleaner which ever is appropriate for the device and also try blowing canned air inside, it can be a dirty lens.

Sony CDP-CX53 rotates the carousel and inserts the CD into the playing position, but it won't play the CD


It sounds like there is a cd tray alignment problem, there is no quick fix, all i could suggest is to send it to us or take it to your nearest dealer.
