That's a Fostex CR200 disc recorder has stopped successfully recording cds. A new disc, Verbatim's, shows recording, VU meter is responding red "rec" light is lit. At the end of recording, I press stop. then finalize, nothing but "repair disc." I used to get the TOC and a countdown would start, then press pause and i could play that disc anywhere.

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer, my name is***** allow me to assist you with your question today, I will do my very best to help you solve this problem.

I am afraid the discs are not compatible with your Fostex. Also, when it says Repair, the track number and recording time data are repaired by tracking the recorded area. Further recording or finalization is possible when the display returns to the previous condition.

Tracing of the recorded area takes about 40 minutes if the disc has been recorded fully, so if it says "Repair", please wait one hour to see if the message is gone.
