Marantz CD17 reads CDr ?
Hi all,

i own a Marantz CD 17. i bought it second hand with some modifications of Cīs etc. Optical unit is replaced.

I am not sure if this cd player reads CDrs reliable?
some i have burned are going well, other not.
The CD stops then if i skip a track and stops.
Sometimes if i press stop or a cd has finished it makes a strange noise, like the cd was stopped to fast and is gliding !

any infos would be very helpful.

I have CD17 (mk1)
Never had any problems with CDR.
I recently replaced the laser. It now has major
problems with the new 'copy protected' CD's: wont even
recognise them.
To play a copy protected CD I have have to make a copy to CDR
which it plays without problems.

hi steverb,

intersting. can you tell me please which Laser unit exaclty you build in.
i bought my used and have to check if the right one is in there because that shop replaced it before he said.
i only have problems with CDrīs of others. mine are fine.
but all the problem CDrīs play perfect on my 10 years old low cost sony cd player which drives me crazy ;)

Sorry I cant remeber the part number. It was a standard Phillips
part. The laser assembly was replaced (you have to buy the whole unit) Its easy to do, no adjustments to make etc.
My CD will not ( and has never) played CDRW.
Have you tried a differnet brand??
Are you burning then 'disk at once' or 'track at once' ???

hi steverb,

i can use any brand of CDrs without problem, if i burn it in my shitty Aopen burner, also at 8 times.
itīs just if other people bring their cdrs, also if they burned them in 2 x speed ! strange.
maybe i have to check the laser unit RF eye pattern..
