I recorded live music using my Tascam CD-RW900 onto a Memorex CD-R (CD)
The recording seemed to go normally and I finalized it at the end.
But the CD wont play in the Tascam or my Apple computer and has a error message that says:
"Disc Repair" No sounds are coming from the machine, just the blinking message
How long does this Repair take? Do I need to press another button to get it to repair it ?

The repair should not take very long, however if the disc is faulty then it will not be repairable.

Try running another disc as a test and let me know if it works?
