    Have you tried burning the same playlist to different brands of CD, to see if it's the CD manufacturer to blame?

Make sure that you have a good power source and cables first.
it seems that a filter cap is not doing what it is supposed to do. which one, i don't know.
you could try to format the HD and update the latest firmware/OS and see if that does the trick. next , if you have new/er harddrive, you could switch it out.

keep us posted

Disc failure while to burn a CD on the Alesis Masterlink ML-9600

The Alesis fitted with a standard computer CD drive, there's an online list somewhere of compatible drives. Take the lid off, unscrew the current drive, and replace. It sounds like the drive is faulty. Online instructions all over the place on how to replace these drives in PCs - it's no different in the Alesis

I bought an Alesis Masterlink ML 9600 for my church but have come to realize that its operation manual is not the best written thing I've ever read. I have it connected for analog input from my audio...

Have you thought the posibillity that the track is too short so there is plenty of remaing "time"to write to the disk? Try putting some more tracks in the recording line. Don't forget that the mean time for recording on audio cd is about 74 minutes (or 99 tracks, whatever comes first).

Try this and in case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

What would cause discs burned recently on my Masterlink to not playback on others CD players?

Good day sir/ma'am hi, its a reality that not all CD players are alike, the burning of the CD which can't be read by other CD players can be caused by the following:
  1. quality of CDR and CDRW.
  2. lens compatibility.
  3. speed of writting and rewritting.
  4. scratches and marks on the CD.
  5. playback circuit that reads the CD.
  6. DIstance of the lens.
  7. manufacturers use different formats and methods of burning. and alot more.
For as long as the CD you burn on your masterlink can be played on itself, your fine. You can try burning the CD on the PC for more compatibility on the CD player.

When I try to burn a redbook cd...the machine just keeps finalizing...never finishes. I could let it run all day and it won't burn a cd. I eventually have to abort.

Either the HD is bad or you will need to reinstall the O.S. /firmware.
the firmware is avail on the alesis site

try the O.S first. The o.s will fix any software related issues
if not , then try switching out the CD drives with a known working one. or try to burn a standard cd. if it works for the standard cd, then the problem is software related.

hope this helps.
