I have a Sony In-dash CD player CDX-1000RF.
Recently I have issues playing (recently burned) audio CDs in this CD player. It keeps giving me error E-04 (or E-4) and ejects the CD. I tried different CD media (ritek/imation/khypermedia). Every CD has the same problem. Some time, it plays couple of tracks and get the error and ejects the CD. sometimes, it ejects the CD without playing a single track.
When I searched on google for E-04, this is what I found:
Err 04: Sub-Q error. The sub-Q code cannot be detected (twice withing five seconds). try another disc.
It plays previously burned audio cds without any problem. (most recent audio cd that played well was burned around 6 months back).
I tried burning with Roxio Easy Media Creator v7, latest Nero version. I used CD burner in Dell Latitude D600 and Lite-on SOHW-1673s.
How can I avoid this error? or what can I do fix the error? Is it problem with media or software or cd player?
