Hi
maybe is to late but here is the complete guide of opc fail on this machines. First of all you may noticed that the very old TDK or Philips discs still record as they should. The new cd digital audio media have a "toc" info above 32x speed, and for the old 760 model the firmware cant see or read any kind of media above 24x. I am pretty sure that on this days there are no media makers with this low speed toc info. Regardless of Brand keep in mind that old TDK and Philips or some older Sony's are made by CMC magnetics. here is the complete info of one old TDK that Works flawlessly on this kind or recorders:

the only solution that I know that Works is to buy a mod chip in order to get the recorder be alive again. But you must find a person with the skills to get the chip soldered.

There are a lot of forums which discuss OPC failure and it strikes every hardware maker and brand of media.

The bottom line is that certain media and certain writers just don't get along.

The manual:

Discussion online:

http://homerecording.com/bbs/general-discussions/recording-techniques/phillips-cdr870-187247/


http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/318687.html

"I don't buy expensive blanks. I buy modest quality blanks and watch
for sales so that I can them for about a dime a piece after the rebate
check comes in. If I have an OPC Fail message, I try another blank. If
I find that they consistently fail (about half a buck wasted) I move
the stack over to the computer (which seems to work fine with these)
and buy another stack of blanks of a different brand next time I see a
good price..."

an interesting workaround:

"CDRW 5000 work around for OPC FAIL
Here's a work around for OPC FAIL on cdrw 5000 -

method 1: turn unit on at least 30 minutes or more before use (this seems to work best for me)

method 2: run OPC on an old cd that always works - after OPC passes, remove old cd and insert new CD (you only get 99 OPC runs per disc)

-or use a combination of the two methods

I've always used TDK and I recently bought a new batch and they stopped working. The old ones still work everytime. I don't know enough about the system to guess what the difference is.

side note: CDRW 2000 will finalise discs from the cdrw 5000 but not the other way around.

Hope that helps "

Where can I get CD-R's that will work on this machine in Australia these days? ie Are there any non audio marked CD-R's that will work in it? I have tried Verbatim and TDK CDr's without any success. I have...


I don't know about availability of CDR-A or -Music in Australia but they are the only media that home CD Audio Recorders are designed to use.

Regarding the CD-RW Audio disks - I've used them for quite some time and do eventually get uncorrectable errors on them but never No Disc displays. Just the same, I don't consider them reliable enough for vital long term storage of music and use my PC to copy them to a CDR as soon as I can. Being a data- rather than real-time-music copy, I reckon the PC may be able to retry errors it encounters and maybe correct them during the copy.

I have a hardtime finding blank CD RW that work


Hi!
I have the same problem too. Tried with, of course only audio cd, TDK (no-opc rate approx 80%), Philips (40/50% and sometimes not good quality on different readers). The best, i.e. less no-opc rate, I found are Sony Premium.

Sometimes it's ok if after no-opc you turn off and restart with test (play+stop+turn on).

RECORD DROP OUT


Just bought this CDR 570 and not use yet.

Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -

Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section

IMPORTANT:
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!

NO RECORD


This message usually indicates that a non-audio disc is in the record tray. Please use only blank music CD-R or CD-RW media. Refer to page 12 of the owners manual for more information regarding acceptable media type for the DA-3826. Also, the laser lens in your CD might be dirty or failing. Try the following solutions: Clean the laser lens with a CD player lense cleaning disc. Lense cleaning discs are available at many electronics retail store. Sorry i can't help you more.
