Reading and bad disk

I apparently have a corrupted disk in my recorder that can not be read. I have tried shutting the recorder off and eentering but so far nothing I try will cause the recorder to eject the current disk.

Unplug the unit and turn off the power switch on the back. Wait 10 minutes, plug unit back in, turn on, hopefully, as it did for me, it will read "ERROR" and allow you to hit the eject button and have it finally work.

You can press the eject button on the drive behind the front panel or connect the ribbon cable from the drive to a PC to eject it. More instructions are on my website here: www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/

Machine is not reading disc

'machine'? The one only you can see :>D

Get a disk cleaning CD from Walmart. It cleans the optics. If it is a home recorded disc, or a counterfeit, it may have become corrupt. Or you may be talking about a floppy disc?

My computer is no longer reading SD cards. I have Windows Vista. Can this be easily fixed? Thanks

If it doesn't show up at all under "Computer" go into "Disk Management" Right click Computer > Manage > DIsk Management.
If it is missing in here then the card is bad. It it shows up here, initialize it if it asks to, otherwise right click the card and add new Simple Volume.

If you see it under "Computer" and when you try to traverse it and it asks to format disk. Format it. This happens when the MFT record on the SD card is corrupt and formatting it will fix it.

TSSTcorp CDRW/DVD TSL 462C not reading some disks

The optical unit reads the disk, no problem with it apparently. This is easy to test - just put the disk in and open My Comp, in there just open the disk and if it's read the actual files will appear.
Your problem is caused by the fact that the files on your disks are in a format your Media Player is incapable of playing. So just get a better one, the best being VLC.

Problem when downloading file says installer integrity check has failed. common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. cannot install files.

If you're reading the file from a CD-ROM, then either:
* the CD-ROM drive is reading incorrectly,
* the CD-ROM is scratched, and thus cannot be read 100% correctly,
* bad RAM in your computer, that "corrupts" the data being read from the disk into the RAM.

Replace the CD-ROM.
Replace the CD disk.
Download "MEMTEST86+", and run it, to test the RAM; replace, if necessary.

File or directory corrupted and unreadable

The directory is like a "table of contents" in a printed textbook.

If a child's crayons have been used to overwrite those pages, making them unreadable, then the table of contents cannot be used to locate the starting page-number of a specific chapter. So, one must read through the whole textbook, page-by-page, looking & trying to recognize the start of a chapter, and then the end of the chapter.

Similarly, there exist "file-recovery" computer software programs that do such "linear" reading of the entire ZIP disk, and trying to reconstruct the "file-structure" that was recorded in the "disk-directory".

Search for "file scavenger" software, and give it a try.

Pioneer PDR-609 CD Recorder. - My recorder frequently fails in the middle of a recording -it stops recording and says 'check disk' in the display. I have several different types of disc (I usually use TDK...

I don't have a stand-alone cd recorder but like many people I have burned discs on the computer and had many disappointments. While some disc drives are clearly better than others, for no apparent reason, there does seem to be more reject discs with some software than others.
Particularly disappointing is the Nero burning software that performs well when it is first installed but seems to deteriorate fairly quickly with every computer restart. I know nothing about such things so I am only guessing the cause might be that Nero displaces some Windows components and Windows seems to try repairing itself when booting.

Like most things these days, especially digital things, your cd recorder is in fact a computer that depends entirely on the software loaded into it, software that could degrade or become corrupted over time.
While it is possible the disc drive (laser perhaps) has become less potent it wouldn't be unreasonable to suspect the software and I suggest you contact Panasonic.
It is probable, like many things requiring software, early versions were found to have problems and would be periodically updated.

RIPED OFF BY BROADWAY PHOTO

Unit may have dust or contaminates built up on optical pickup. If you can reach the lens, try to very gently clean the pickup lens with a Q-tip. It is possible the unit has a defective turntable motor in which case you will have to have it replaced

Problems with a disc that keeps reading unformatted

This has happened because somehow the program didn't "Close the Session" and make it so data could be added, instead it has "Locked" the disk to prevent any more data being overwritten and ostensibly corrupting the disk.. In this case however it has also locked out everything... and returned it to the "Unformatted" state. Although I suspect you will NOT actually be able to record anything to this disk in actual fact. You MAY be abale to use a program called Unstopable Copier, if ya lucky :Download HERE www.majorgeeks.com/download2623.html
