Question about Sony RCD-W500C 5-Disc CD Recorder

Not recording I'm having exactly the same problem that jhector reported in February 2007: I put in a disc, and it says "blank disc", then I press record as the manual says to do, but instead of "standing ready" as the manual predicts, the word "data" flashes briefly and it does not stand ready to do anything,

I want to use the optical input s a dac without going through the recorder

Put in a blank or unfinalized disc, press Record until Record Manual shows. This is similar to an old-school cassette deck being in Pause/Record mode. That should do it. The input signal will be present on the audio outputs (both digital and analog).

The manual isn't specific about how long you can remain in Record Manual mode without starting to record on the CD. My Pioneer has a Monitor function so I don't need to place a blank disc for this.

I get a "Data Disc" message when I press record.

have you purchased the correct blank discs? sounds like you've inserted discs that can only be used on a PC. these players can only record onto blanks bearing the "compact disc digital audio" mark. these are for use on home audio recorders. hope this helps?

On my psp my games won't work

Almost at the same time the Xbox 360 was released in late 2005, consumers began reporting rounded scratches found on discs used in their Xbox 360 consoles. Almost two years later, in February 2007, the website "The Llamma's Adventures" investigated the matter and concluded that some Xbox 360 drives lack a mechanism to secure the disc solidly in place.

Tascam DP-01 FX/CD Digital Portastudio

Here's a link to a forum where someone else encountered the same error. Seems it was due to running out of disc space in that instance.

I can not get my CD recorder to record

You should use consumer cd's that are rather expensive. You probably tried to record a recordable cd-rom (a cheap computer disc). It's not possible to burn a pro-disc (computer disc) by using your Pioneer, and that's why you got that message on the screen. Refer to the user manual of your cd recorder and learn what sort of blank cd you should use.
