Default Philips CDR-760 'audio' CD-R/RW mod

Hi all!

Recently finished a project in which I modified a Philips CDR-760 in order to make it record to regular CD-R/RWs, not just 'audio' ones. There is a modchip available online, however, as I couldn't find anything else online about modding the recorder, I thought it'd be more interesting to figure out how the mod-chip worked and make my own rather than buying one ready made.

I presume most people record straight to their computers these days using a nice ADC, but in case there's anyone else who still uses a standalone CD recorder (specifically a Philips CDR-760 or closely related model), here is a guide into modding your own machine:

Home * Wiki * Samuel / CDR760Mod * GitLab

In the wiki, I included information about why I did this, how it works, and how you can do it yourself.

I hope this helps someone

I believe it should work, the CDR-765 looks like a CDR-760 with an extra optical drive for playing/recording from. They also share the same service manual, I presume the main optical drive that can record to discs is almost/exactly the same. The pages in the service manual with the chips on that the mod taps into are labeled with both the CDR-760 and CDR-765 too.

Hi, sorry you were having trouble downloading the file, I'm not sure why that happened as the repository is set to public.

Let me know how it goes, I'm recording a record to a non-audio CD-RW with my modded CDR-760 right now
