I consistantly get an update message after trying to record disc to disc as little as one track why?

That is best discussed with the Philips support people as there could be a reset procedure. I have never heard of this but you may have caused the unit to enter a different mode by doing an overburn attempt.

The righthand (player) side of my Phiips CDR775 will play cds that I have recorded but will no longer play originals. I have used a cd lens cleaner but problem remains.

It may need a better cleaning by a professional as well as some lubrication at points in the unit. This is a job for a Technician.

I have a Phillips CDR 775 2 -disc cd recorder and my track time is automatically set to 20 seconds. How do I increase this time per track? Also, I cannot seem to get the auto track to work when...

It's all in the manual...

20 seconds is the amount of digital 'silence' the machine will let pass during recording before it marks a new track. t will Pause and wait one minute for a digital signal to resume. (Page 21)

On digital copying it will automatically increment track numbers as the source advances.

For analog sources you should switch Auto Track to OFF and manually press Track as applicable. (Page 28)
