The unit locks up midway through finalization of a CD. Turning the burner off and restart brings the machine to exact same point. I had to take the unit apart to remove the CD. Even with the CD removed the unit fails to return to normal/ready status. Is there any factory restart technique?
I did find out how to do the manual eject, for a stuck cd.
Open up the machine, looking at the front/top, on the lower left side of the cd transport there is a white plastic gear that can be turned with your finger, ejecting the cd.
I just encountered this same problem. i was able to get the cd out by following barbhirsch's advice (see solution #2). after closing the cd tray, and powering the machine back up, however, it was still *stuck* halfway through the finalization process. however, i did come up with a solution...
1. with the power off, remove the disc per barbhirsch's instructions.
2. leaving the cd tray in the open position, turn the power back on. upon powering up, my hhb automatically started looking for a new cd, and the problem was solved.
hope this is of help to anyone who is having problems with this!

Re: HHB 850 CD Burner - lockup problem
The 850 has a test mode accessed by shorting a jumper on the display board,but you could try the 830 method - hold in the menu/delete and the auto/manual keys for longer than 5 seconds. Careful, don't adjust anything, just power off to exit test menu.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Set the top tension to the midway point and retest the machine.
Tweak the top tension so the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.
Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct and that the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly. Set the top tension to the midway point--you'll probably need to tweak the tension for your particular machine.
Bring the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric (manually with the handwheel). Then gently hold both thread tails in your left hand while you begin to slowly take the first couple of stitches.
If you are still getting thread barfs in the bobbin area, your machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.
The factory standard tension is the midway point between the high & low number. Then tweak the tension from there. Tighten to pull the lower thread higher in the fabric, Loosen to bring the top thread lower in the fabric.
I have had this happen as well. There are many computers in my house and I have a cd burner with a blank CD-R laying around. If you have access to all this then this will work: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
If not, try admin and leave the password blank. Hope this helps!
Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible to get a recording to sound like anything produced commercially these days without using lots of compression. Your burned CD problems might be the result of a faulty burner on your DP01-FX/CD. I have a 2488 and I still export all my mastered songs as wav files and burn them onto disc using my PC just because of the flexibility on the PC and you can control settings better which can cause disc burning problems (not to mention that the burner is newer and faster on my PC).
If you don't want to work on a PC you could look into replacing the burner in your Tascam. It is similar to replacing a PC's burner and the either the Tascam site and/or the Tascam Forum should be able to provide you with the specs and a list of compatible CD burners.
To get the final product to sound louder you could invest in an external compressor (a good used one should run you less than $100). You'll have to use the DP01's send loops to route a bounce of the stereo mix out to the compressor and then route the result back into the DP01 inputs and record on a couple of free tracks.
What is happening is that the dvdrom firmware or the laser is failing and cannot read the disc; and because the pc is using all the system resources trying to do so; it appears that you cannot get anything to run, making it seem as if the hard drive is faulty also, though not the case.
You will need to replace the drive if this is a common occurance, as the life of a dvd drive nowadays dependant on use is aprox 2 years, because as the prices come down so does the quality of the laser required to burn and read discs.
