Question about Denon CDR-W1500 2-Disc CD Recorder
When selecting the input to be in "OPT" optical recording. The display reads "DIA. UNLOCK" and the "D" is always flashing. The manual said to check all connections for the optical inputs and they are good. The optical cable is known good because I tried it on another digiatl recorder unit and it works. I can record in analog mode ok. The record display does not recieve any signal on the display when tring to record using the optical inputs.
What might be happenening is the refresh rate for your blu-ray is offsync for your preferred display. You should be able to change it by plugging it into another TV and playing around with the settings. If you have further problems please feel free to post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

Make sure the two switches on the remote are all of the way to left most position before you try using the SYSTEM SETUP button - if the AVR is going into SETUP, the LCD display should be saying "SYSTEM SETUP". (I think that model does - most do). also make sure that the Composite or S-Video on the TV's input 1 work from something else like a VCR, DVD player, ETC. rule out the TV and the cable first.

It only passes the signal it see's. Digital for Digital and Analog for Analog. Try running a Standard analog RCA from your Cable box to the receiver then try and record. Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further.

SOURCE: Denon CDR-W1500 not recording
I had the exact problem and could not get any of the CR-Rs that I had to work. I looked up the code in the user's manual where it said the error means it's not a recordable audio CD and to refer to page 6. I looked at the front of the manual and saw that it mentions that the CD-Rs must be audio CD-R discs. I did some research online and found that there are in fact differences between CD-Rs that are just marked that and those marked as Audio or Music CD-Rs. I bought a set of CD-Rs that clearly had marked "Compact Disc Digital Audio Recordable" on the package. When I inserted this disc, I had no problems getting the recording to work. So, make sure the discs you use are clearly marked "Audio" or "Music". A computer burner won't know the difference, but your Denon recorder will.

Your original post said it was blank discs that didn't work.
Now it's ALL discs including pre-recorderd ones. THAT changes things considerably.
Is it audibly rotating the disc once it's loaded?
