Customer Question

I recorded live music onto a Tascam CD_RW900 recorder, but I used a Memorex CD-R, instead of a Memorex CD-R (Music) CD. I finalized it when I was finished.Now the Memorex CD-R won't play on the Tascam, comes up with the error message "Disc Repair", but I do not hear the machine doing anything. Do I need to press some other button on the Tascam to get it to repair it so it will play on the Tascam or on my Apple computers?

Hi there,

You cannot convert a CD-R to a music CD after it has been finalized.

You will need to create a new CD.
