Question about Philips CDR770 CD Recorder
All of a sudden I can't find the right cd's to use in my recorder. I've tried everything from maxell to sony. I used to buy sony music ONLY but I can't seem to find anything but cd-r music 700mb 80min. They work on the pc but not on my cdr770. Please help!

These recorders will only use discs sold as "Music CD recordables". The midcode on them tells the recorder it is permitted to use this media. Computer CD-R's do not have this in the midcode. When they were marketed, the Music industry gets a portion of the profit to "make-up for lost sales" due to the set-top recorders being easier for the average Joe to use. They must say "Music CD-R" or the set top recorder will not use them. Memorex was the last ones still in the market last I checked. I have a Philips CDR 785, so I do know from experience.
