The format you originally made disc with is nearly obsolete. I have same issue with newer discs in older CD player in an older BMW. You might try to copy it on a MAC/Apple computer and then convert to MP3 or MP4 - OR check locally with CD duplicators some have older converters.

Thanks everyone. I should clarify that the cds that will not play in the right hand tray (originals) are as pre-recorded by a record company; for example, an ABBA cd which I used to be able to play, I...


What does the lower surface look like? Does it have a lot of scratches or is it perfect? Many times the condition of the optical surface of the disc can affect the results you have. The disc is scratched can be polished. Burned disc only have about 70% of the output that a pressed disc has so sometimes you need to burn a new one.

Wont play disc back that it recorded.


I get loads of the same question you ask every day, the DVD disks do sadly fail, out of a pack of 10 you can say that 2 will not write or play back, this is still the reason most pro movie makers like myself will only use movie tape today like the Hi 8 mm sort.
Also beware as we have found that lots of DVD disks we have made over 9 years ago no longer will work, so never feel your precious movies are pernament with this new mode of recordings.

I have an old Samsung VP-A30 video camera with loads of 8mm tapes, and would like to transfer to either TV/Video/PC. Unfortunately, there seems to be just one AV output source, which feels rather fragile,...


Hello Ron,
Well that is like you say an old camera, mind you 8mm is still far the best and safest way to store your valued films as it has kept the data on those tapes longer than any DVD ever did, remember unlike we thought 10 years ago a DVD only has around 8 to 10 years life span, we are finding CD & DVD productions that are over 8 years old just wont play any longer.
Kodak put a report on the net 7 years ago that they found even some quite costly DVD recorded media had gone blank and refused to play after a very short time in storage.
I think you ought to look around Ebay, find a nice HI8 digital camera, put your loved tapes in that, plug the new Firewire cable into the camera, and your PC and download your treasured items to another media like DVD.
Keep your 8mm tapes in a draw safe though because they will out-live all DVD recordings I can honestly say that.

Ruins disk with big marks on them


Check with Walmart. They should have a record of your extended warranty.

Also check the forums on xbox live regarding your specific disk scratching issue. This normally happens if/when the console is moved while the games/movies are being played.

My front loader reads disc error or unplayable no matter what disc I insert. It worked just fine for about 2 years. It doesn ot get heavy cd use, but everyday radio/alarm use.


To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
  • The Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs, MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs, make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs


  • The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was recorded in and the actual disc used for recording.
    Note: iTunes defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options


  • Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs


  • If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc


  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in

Skiping


Skipping can be the loss of tracking information or a bad motor. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, look at the rails that the optics ride on. clean those using a dry cotton swab. There should be small gears close by that move the optics along the rails. Make sure that the teeth are clear.

Keep us posted on your results.
