Hi and Welcome![QUOTE=Pandora03;2269405]I have an Aiwa CX-NA505 built in 1998 that will not play burned cds.[/quote]such happens. I have a JVC unit that is similar picky.
The player is in excellent condition and I do not want to buy a new cd player just so I can play burned cds on it, so if there is any possible way to get it to play burned cds, I would like to!
The magic* of making CD-R playing in such picky players depends
[li]on the drive that is used for CD burning[/li][li]on the blank media that was used and[/li][li]on the speed used for burning.[/li][/ul]
With my JVC, this worked (for me):
Burner: Pioneer DVR 112 or Optiarc AD7200
Media: Ritek or CMC (unfortunately the premium grade TY failed also)
Burn speed: 16x
Additionally, cleaning the lens of the player (mine is easily accessible) helps improving the playability.
*) sometimes it helps if the disc is burned at midnight on full moon by a red haired virgin
