Hi-My great, and old, Denon changer recently conked out. Being broke I bought a cheap, single disc Sony DVD player. My issue: it will play everything I've tried so far with one major exception. It doesn't acknowledge any cd-r that I've ripped from cda to mp3, wav. I just have it hooked up to my stereo system and all I get is "stop" following the loading process. I hooked it up temporarily to the television to see if there were any settings to be adjusted but they're all factory set and can't be messed with. After loading a disc the display shows no content. But it will play all cda files just fine. Usually Verbatim discs.
I'm not very adept at this kind of thing so does anyone have any thoughts other than buying a player that isn't $35.00 brand new? I will, but not right now. Thanks so much for any help you may offer!
OK, thanks. I did try different burn options, 2 different programs for burning, even some different brands of discs. Maybe the player is at fault, but it's a long and arduous road returning it. I'll just stick with it until I can afford something different and in the meantime re-download some of my favorites, burn them and leave them as cda. It's the price one pays for buying cheapo products I guess. Oh well. Thanks for your feedback.
My cd players don't support that newfangled mp-3 or other than non-music (think that's how it's usually defined) cd formats. I know my car cd changer doesn't play mp-3 format nor does my old Sony cd changer. That's a relatively new thing....I can't believe or understand why that is so difficult to believe or understand but then I'm old and I remember when cd's were brand new. LOL!
LOL, I'm old too! But the Sony unit was manufactured in 2013 which is why I "can't believe or understand."
I'm almost embarrassed to say with all of the audiophiles here but I have a very nice Yamaha receiver so this dvd player actually sounds pretty good. Model # SD3300 and it says region 1 which is what I need.
Branded Sony or Toshiba?
You've been extremely helpful and I thank you! I'll read the manual (or rather try to decipher it) but could you answer one question? What are "necessary" formats and basic cd audio? Those are cda files only?
Yes you're right. I just looked at the price and assumed all would work as I wanted. I just took one of my burned mp3 discs and copied it to a folder and then burned it again. Came out as cda and plays on the new player. Now I'll just do that a few times and things will be OK for now. Thanks again-very much appreciate the time you spent!!
