Help with Phillips CDR 775 recorder

 

Unregistered guest
I'm having trouble recording with my phillips cdr 775. First, I tried recording from an external source (a turntable)-- All was well until the final track, when the recording simply stopped (there was plenty of space left on the CDR Audio I was using). I tried finalizing the disk to no avail. Next I tried recording internally, using the burner's two cd trays. Midway through recording, the device froze, and the recording was ruined. I was using Maxell CDR Audio disks. Does anyone have any experience with this model? Any suggestions?

I have a Philips CDR-800 audio cd recorder. It doesn't record well with TDK and Maxell cdr-audio discs. But it records fine with Fuji (Fujifilm)audio Cd-r and Sony audio Cd-r discs. Give them a try. I prefer Fuji because to my ears they sound just like the original over Sony that sound slightly worse.
When I have bought this cd recorder three years ago I wasn't happy with my purchase because I'm not able to buy any brand but just some brands, but now that I know that other audio cd recorders like Sony are not able to record 80 minutes without finalizing problems, I'm pleased with my cd recorder, because for me is worse not be able to copy a 80 minutes original disc (I have a plenty of them).
I wish that this could help you. Sorry, for the bad english but that is not my native language.

I don't copy cd's on my computer burner because the sound quality is much worse with less detail and "air".

I have a Philps CDR750 and it won't record at all with Maxell Discs. It works fine with Memorex, TDK and Traxdata though. It's damn annoying as Costco are selling 20pks of the Maxwell CDR's with jewel cases for 7.99!!!!!

Stonewallz, I'm writing this from memory, so the terminology I use might be slightly iffey, but the process is OK. I suggest that you do this first on to a CD-RW disc in case of mistakes. First, select "Analogue Signal" from data type on the CDR player. Then chose "Ext Manual data" from the Rec type menu. Start playing the LP on the turntable and press the "record" button on the CDR player. Between each LP track, remember to press the Track Increment button on the remote control of the CDR player (to break up the signal feed into different CD tracks). When the recording is complete on side 1 of the LP press Stop. Repeat the process for side 2 of the LP. The final thing to be done is to press "Finalise" on the CDR player (the CDR player will then instruct you to press "record"). The Finalising process will take about 2 minutes. Hey Presto!

my philips cdr 775 recorder will record analog (vinyl records) without a problem. After I finalize the CD-R (audio-type only works in this unit), I attempt to open them up in my computer for editing (delete the "needle drop", reduce noise, etc.). Nero nor Cakewalk nor Cool Edit Pro will recognize them as anything other than "read-only" CDA files (44K in size). If I can't load these files into my computer for editing and conversion (i.e., WAV or MP3 files, for instance), then what good is this CD Recorder? Hopefully, I'm doing something wrong. Can anyone advise me on this one? Russ

I find that Philips CD rcorders need to have their laser lenses cleaned periodically. Otherwise, there are a variety of problems in reading and finalizing disks. Any of the usual laser lens cleaning disks seem to be adequate.

cdr 765 recorder player, the problem is that the cd-r discs are formated for multi uses now, you need discs for home audio only, it says so in the manual. I can not find any avalible anywhere, if you find some it will work perfect. let me know if there are discs avalible,I need some also, hope this information will help. smrdrunner@aol.com

I am having problems with TDK discs recording onto CDR770, which is a shame cos a local shop is selling them £5 for 10 with cases and I bought loads! About half work ok and half stop midway through. My advice is to buy Philips own CDR dics, which have never failed once. Local Comet sells them £9.99 for 10

Further to post above they are called Philips
CD-R Q and come in a red and black box.

Russel David, I don't know that you will be back to read this but the reason your audio files show up as 44k is because you never completed the transfer to your p.c.. You can use media player or winamp to "rip" them to your system if all else fails.

I'm having finalizing problems with my CDR 775. Every time I try to finalize a disc, the count-down starts at 2mins 10 secs and counts down to 1min 45 secs where it stops. And that's it. I've tried Maxell and Memorex discs. I'm going to try and get Fuji discs and clean the lens (shouldn't be necessary as it's almost new). Any ideas?

For all who are having "OPC ERROR" or " DISC ERROR" with the "Philips CDR775". The Problem is simple, the unit is a little out dated for the blank media that is out there now. The unit was made to read and finalize CD-R's that are; 1. Music Only, 2. The blank IS 74min/650MB(very important!).The unit can't read the 80min/700MB or "Data CD-R's". There is no truth to the rumor that there is a CD+R or a CD-R, that only apply's with DVD-R's, for which this machine is NOT compatable. I have owned mine from brand new and I now am finding it hard to find the media for it. The best blank media I have had no problems with have been TDK and Fuji. It is 6 years old and technology has pasted it by. If you can find media for it, you should have no problems with it. Mine still works and sounds great. As far as getting the music into a PC, use Musicmatch. It will read the "Music only" CD-R, much like a regular music cd only it won't have any listing for the tracks. You can manualy enter those. The ripp program works fine for mine. Hope this helps.

Jazzy Jez,
I am sorry to say that I think you have a problem with the laser. No simple way to fix that. If it were me, I would think on looking into buying a newer unit that would be more disc brand friendly. I not saying that the "CDR775" is a bad unit. It's just a little out-dated for the newer media out there today. Don't waste your time on calling Philips USA. They can't help, again, unit is too out-dated. Last resort, try TDK 74min disc, if you can still find some.

I have the CDR 775 unit and have the same problems as others listed here: machine stops in mid-recording, door won't open, and won't finalize. I can't even begin to tell you how Pi**ed off it can be to record 70 minutes of LP music only to end up with nothing. A couple of times, I've had to pry the door to remove the CD. No wonder you can't find this equipment new anymore.

Darkiss, No there is no way around it. The machine was made for the "Music Only" CD-R's. To Everyone else, I do have a very positive update!!!! I have found that the TDK 80min/700MB Audio only CD-R's will work in my CDR-775!!!! I have found them at: CompUSA and CVS Drug Stores of all places! A 20 pack at CVS is $11.99 US Dollars and at Comp USA they are $8.99 US Dollars.I would hope to think that any of you should be able to go to their web sites and order them on-line, again, I am having good luck with the TDK brand 80min/700MB "Audio Only" Disc. Try it, I hope it works out for every one. Happy recording!

To record from your tape player (or Phono)on the Philips 775 plug the RCA jacks into the analog inputs of the 775. Push the Ext Source button until Analog lights up.Auto track only works with digital output so you have to either hit the Pause button on the machine between tracks or press track incr on the remote between tracks. Press REC TYPE until REC EXT MAN shows then a Wait message. Use the Jog/Enter to set -3DB or what you want.Press Record on the CD recorder and start your source.After it is done hit Finalize and Record and that's it.
