Burned discs problem

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

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!

Obviously the player doesn't support that type of disc. You will need one that does.

If you mean the disc itself i.e. cd-r it does.  But I have a difficult time believing, or understanding, how it can't read mps, wav, etc..

No, I meant the disc. It may not like the way burned them as another possibility but there isn't much you can do about that.

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!

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.

LOL, I'm old too!  But the Sony unit was manufactured in 2013 which is why I "can't believe or understand."

Yes, that is hard to believe....wonder what the marketing geniuses at Sony were thinking of? Was this product intended for an area of the world that doesn't have need for such formats? What model number is it?

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?

yeah that was stupid of me to say Sony earlier.  Sorry.  It's a Toshiba

Nope, that model seems to only support necessary dvd formats and basic cd audio rather than supplemental audio formats....http://www.manualslib.com/manual/203786/Toshiba-Sd3300.html

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?

post #14 of 16
Well, it won't play BluRays nor mp3s or .wav files from what I can see, the unit seems aimed at basic commercial dvd and audio discs rather than consumer made discs....go figure since they sell the commercial stuff, eh? Always make sure a unit's specs meets your needs....

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!!

No problem, glad you can do what you want albeit if in a slightly different way. Product specs are a good thing over assumptions.... smile.gif
