Backup (copied) Cd's

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else have problems with CDR/CDRW cd's in the multichanger.

Not sure if its the player, CD's or nero which is the issue :unsure:

I've had no problems.

Do they work in other CD players?

Make sure you finalise the CD in Nero.

I was told by a guy who repair's stereo/cd units that the problem with cd-r's etc are they are slightly thinner than normal cd's and that is what causes most of the problems.

Mind you that may be just an excuse!

4 out of 6 of my current music are CD-R - and everyone works fine.

I use Philips CD-R80 52x, available from Argos or Currys

Just use a slower burn speed Mat, that should work. I do all of mine at 8x or 12x, seems to work fine for me.

i have found that RW's are the worst to try and play.. R's do work,, and as suggested burn at a slower speed. and/or try a differnent brand,, as some surface finishes (ie dye colour) refract the laser incorrectly and so the player cant read it..

mine are pretty cheap £16 for 100 i burn at 52X and have never had any probs with these playing - unless they are scratched which these tend to do a bit easier than normal, but i can live with that

So do I :)

Could depend on the used burner. I have to write them with 4x. In my notebook. Never had any problems again :)
