LP/Cassette Transfer

Question

I was recently transferring some old cassettes into digital via EMC10.

 

Now this may not be a "problem", but after I recorded them, cleaned them up in the Sound Editor (saved as .WAV for further tweaking later down the line), and burned them to disc, the disc won't play in alot of CD / DVD players. This includes my Chrysler and Sony DVD player that won't play them. The computer plays them, and my cheapo night stand CD player does, too!?

 

Just wondering if another "final burning' format is better, or is it possible it was a mistake I could have made earlier on?

 

Thanks!

I've got to ask, do the instruction manuals for those devices say they can play audio CDs? I've heard of some DVD players being finicky with home burned DVDs but not with home burned CDs. If they play in other equipment, I would suspect your hardware.

 

You can always try staging the burn to your hard drive (burn to an audio file -- c2d) to see if that helps but I doubt it. You can also see if the burner and disc allow you to burn at a lower speed.

 

Have you tried another brand of CD? You are not using RW discs are you?

Oh, yeah, this DVD player ALWAYS plays CD's, no problem. As does the car CD player. Regular CDs too, not RW.

 

Good point with the lower speed, I'll try that next, and the next logical step will be another brand of CD.

 

I'll give'm a try.

 

Thanks!

You need to check the player book to see if it says it supports cdr disks written on your computer. The commercial cd's use a slightly different tech and thus sometimes the ones burned on your system don't work if the player isn't designed for that. I have found that certain brands of cdr work better in an older player not designed for the computer made cdrs and I've also found if I burn at a very low speed....i.e. 8x that those often work better...so...get a good brand of disks not cheapo sale disks and experiment with burning at as slow a speed as you can stand to wait for...that's my experience. I've got a really old stereo with a four tray jukebox on it that came out before computer burned cds and if I use a good brand like Sony and burn at 4x-8x it plays almost everything I put in it.

You may be right, but I believe that Ty got his problem squared away, or he would have posted again.
