Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, First- sorry you're having problems.
Secondly, when you say Tapes to CD's, I'm assuming you are referring to Audio Tapes/CD's and not DVD's (which are video) correct?
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that if the discs were audio recordings made from taped audio recordings, then they will never play back to a TV via a DVD player. You would need to put them in a computer's disc drive, for instance, and then select audio playback by e.g. Windows Media Player, to hear what is on the discs.
Also: look on the discs. They will be marked 'CD' or 'CD-R' or 'CD-RW' if they are audio CDs.
If they are DVD discs (video) they will be either double-sided (no label side) or else labeled as 'DVD' of some sort.
If CD discs is what they are, a DVD player won't play them; a PC with Windows Media Player and a CD drive will play them.
If this answers your question, please rate my answer. Thanks.
