You could spend $50 to try to get it fixed.
Or, you could spend $40 to buy a brand-new, CD/DVD, reader/writer.
Your money; your choice.

What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.


DVD-RW
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.

DVD+RW

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.


There you are.

I just bougth a marantz cdr 300 cd recorder,everything seems to be working fine, but I'm not able to listen what I just recordered on any other cd player.Marantz cd 72 mr 2020.Thanks


Hi,
It sounds like you haven't followed the last step to the burning procedure. All you need to do once you've completed burning your disc is to Finalize the disc. Read below why you need to finalize as well as the steps to follow in order to finalize the disc.
Hope this helps ;)
How to Finalize Finalizing is writing the TOC (table of contents) on a disc so a CD player can recognize the number of tracks, the total time for each track, and their location on the disc. A recorded disc must be finalized to playback on a standard CD player. Once finalized a CD-R disc can be played on CD players that support CD-R playback. CD-RW discs can only be played on CD players that support CD-RW playback. Consult your CD player owner's manual to confirm supported formats. Finalizing is necessary to: • be able to play a recorded CD-R or CD-RW disc on a CD player • prevent further recording on a disc • avoid erasing tracks on a CD-RW disc • record text information onto a disc you record Notes: • A finalized CD-R disc can never be recorded onto again. • A finalized CD-RW disc can be unfinalized for more recording. • The CDR300 can play back unfinalized CD-R or CD-RW discs. • SYNC REC+FINAL mode automatically finalizes.
Here are the steps in order to Finalize your disk
1 Push Stop. The display shows the number of tracks and their total playing time. 2 Push FINALIZE. FINALIZE is displayed for about 3 seconds.

Trying to write to blank disk first time (Memorex CD-RW). Get message: Record failed: wrong format for re-write Spectroniq SDR-205 DVD Recorder


Some DVD recorders cannot write CD-RW - only DVD-RW (+ and -) as well as DVD-R (+ and -) (this depends on the brand/model). This unit probably does not support CD recording. Try using DVD-RW instead for this machine - see if it records that (do not finalise even if unit prompts you to with an on-screen message prior to ejecting disc).

There are DVD players and recorders which can play CD-RW (mp3, jpegs etc.) but I don't know of any which record this format (a PC CD/DVD-ROM drive can do this though).

My -rw will not play on my cd player


When you record to the cd-rw, make sure that you're making an Audio disk, not a multi-session (record disk-at-once) and make sure that the software finalizes the disk.

If that's still not working, post back the make and model of the CD player and I'll try to find a tech note for it. (use the "add comment" link)

If that does help, please be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!

On my Marantz CDR-630, how do you erase unwanted tracks after recording and before finalizing. I see there's a "erase" button but it won't do anything. Fred, fred@katli.com Thanks!!


Which recordable disks are you asking about? "Erase" will only work on CD-RW and does nothing on CD-R.

Once you've recorded onto CD-R all you can do is add additional material to it until the disk is finalised to allow it to be played on virtually all CD players. The same goes with CD-RW, but with those you have the option to erase the entire disk and start again from scratch. You can also delete individual tracks from a CD-RW but the space does not become available for additional recordings until the disk is totally erased.

Perhaps you'll find the .pdf manual to be of use:-

It wont record on 16xdvd+r discs? what is the properdisc


  • Media Type that the unit will play CD , DVD , CD-R , SVCD , CD-RW , DVD+R , DVD-R , DVD+RW , DVD-RW , DVD-ROM , Video CD
  • Media Format PAL , NTSC
  • Recordable Media DVD+R , DVD+RW only.. It will not record on the more expensive and compatible DVD-R, DVD-RW.
  • I recommend burning at a slower speed such as 2.4X, 4X or at most 8X.
  • I had similar issues resulting in many "coasters" for drinks burning at a faster rate even with my computer. Although some disks are designed to burn at a faster rate, software and components sometimes cannot keep up resulting in wasted money and time.
  • It may also be the media (manufacturer of disks). No matter which DVR or Burner you may have certain hardware schemes do not like certain media. It is a trial and error process. Just make sure the store has a return policy for the disks if they don't work. I have never had a problem returning disks to Staples that did not work.
I hope this helps and good luck.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

Can't record DVD+RW and DVD+ Disks...PLUS


Firstly, you need to finalize the -R disk recorded by and in your unit before it will play back anywhere else.

Secondly, the DMR-ES10 does not support +RW, only -RW.

Finally, I have never heard of a +D. Do you mean +R? It is likely that you have a corrupt disk; change it.
