Question about Philips Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, my cd player will not read cd's. It will read disc not finalized. We have a philips cd player. I'm not sure where to find the model number. It is a 3 disc changer. I read about cleaning the eye, but I think it is inside where I cant reach it. The place that holds cds slides out. Any ideas on what to do?

How do you record


You put blank media in the record side and hit the record button. These CD recorders are not as easy as using a Cassette deck. You need to Finalize the disc before it can be read on a standard CD player.

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.

The right disc recorder won't finalize


I can't trace the model number CDR778 but with the Philips CDR779 only the LEFT disk tray can be used for recording - the right is for playback only.

According to the manual after pressing the Finalise button you have to press the record button again. If you are unsure of operating procedures you can download the manual here http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/c/cdr779_00/cdr779_00_dfu_eng.pdf

My cd recorder wont read blank cds help me please


Do as it asks, insert blank CD-Audio or CD-Music media.

Discs for recording
For recording, make sure to use special audio discs only.
These discs are marked with “Digital Audio” and the logos shown below.
There are two different types of audio discs for the use on this CD recorder:
– CD-Audio Recordable (CDR) discs
These discs can be recorded on once and
play in all standard CD players and CD
recorders, when they are finalized.
– CD-Audio ReWritable (CDRW) discs
These discs can be recorded on, erased and
re-recorded many times and play in CDRW
compatible CD players and CD recorders,
when they are finalized.
– All Philips CD players and CD recorders
with the sticker shown here are CDRW
compatible.
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of Philips audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only.
Note: Do not use a computer CDR or CDRW as recording will not work!

Go here and download the manual. You'll need it.

"disc not finalized"


In order for that CD to play, it has to be finalized on the same device that you used to record the CD, be it a computer or a CD recorder. Consult the recorder's directions for instructions on how to finalize the disc - or tell us the model number of the device you did to do the recording, and we can tell you how to finalize the disc.

Can't get my phillips dvd/vcr recorder to finalize dvd. How do I do it.


here is the tec line phone number 1-800-PHILIPS (744-5477).
if you call the tec line they will ask Model and Serial Numbers and when you bought it

but this is what i found out:
take the disc out,
put it back in and let it load to disc menu screen then press STOP,
no press SETUP button on remote and got to "Disc Edit"
then select "Finalize" and verify "Yes"
it will take a few mins. to finalize
This worked for me!
