[QUOTE=mixedup;1746345]hi all…i’m new here!
anyway, i’ve got a question: a few years back i bought a marantz cdr630 cd-recorder. it’s a ‘professional’ unit which was made to record on both cd-r audio and data discs, which it did fine for quite a few years. problem is, it doesn’t seem to like any of the currently/widely available data cd-rs (i’ve tried tdk, maxell, verbatim, etc). it DOES like the verbatim “digital vinyl” cd-rs, but that’s about the only disc i’ve tried recently that it detects as being a cd-r.
it’s not a problem with the unit as i’ve got an old tdk (with darker recording dye), kodak, and an older maxell which work just fine. it seems to be discs with darker recording dye that it prefers (although it worked fine with some of the lighter coloured discs which were manufactured a year or two back).
anyone have any insight on this, or what discs i might be able to try? i’m trying to avoid the more-expensive “audio” discs (and i’m not even sure those would work at this point!).
thanks for any/all help![/QUOTE]
I have this machine also. My expereince has been that the 80 minute data cdr’s are very fussy for this machine. Sometimes , they work, many times they don’t.
I have never had problems with the 74 minute data cdr’s.
The only problem, I don’t know if 74 minute cdr’s are available any more.
This is a fantastic machine. It’s replacement, the marantz cdr632, is even
better, and it’s cheaper than the 630 was when it was out.
The 632 handles all the cd’s I’ve tried.
