Default Is there a nakamichi MB-100 mod to play CD-R's?

I've got the mod for the MF-51, and it's great. Played every CD under the sun.

But Ive been prepping my MB-100 to go into the car, and noticed again that it really can not play CD-R's

Surely there must be a way to make the MB-100 play recorded CD's in as robust a manner as the MF-51 after the mod?

That should play CD-R's no problem. What does it do when you load one?

skips around like it is having trouble tracking. Jumps through time, jumps back in time, sometimes acts like it is in fast forward for a few seconds.

The general kind of behavior associated with a CD-R that is bad or old or on it's way out.

But this happens with CDs every other player under the sun has no troubles with, and the unit plays manufactured CDs just fine.

Try burning a cd at 1x some of the old players don't like cd's written at high speeds.

I don't really burn CD's all that often, so I have onsey-twosey CD's all over the place.

I had a chance to make some love to my MB-100 today and noticed that it wasn't in fact all CD-R's as I previously thought, it was picking and choosing which it wanted to play and which it did not want to play.

So let me turn that question around on you if I may. What kind of CD's do YOU use, and do you own an older CD player?

Last time i burnt a audio cd was about 3 years ago i always used verbatim and tdk the verbatim discs were better then the tdk ones.

It might also be crappy nero you might want to try different software
Infrarecorder is the best one i know of for windows

i don't have any old players that work but some old home cd players iv used didn't play cds written at high speeds.

I tried playing a few copied cds in a old alpine 5903 today found that most cheap brand cds worked after i cleaned the lens

Have you tried cleaning the lens?

nope. In fact, it's pretty likely there is either dust or a smudge on the lens.

I can expose the lens real easy, can you give me a basic cleaning procedure?

Thanks,

Steve
