I have a PDR-509 compact disc recorder. I loved my first one

Customer Question

I have a PDR-509 compact disc recorder. I loved my first one and wore it out. I purchased a used one on Amazon. It was working good. All of a sudden it wouldn't record and all It would show in the window was PRO DISC. Tried different cds. The only one both the burners would accept was Memorex cd. I just ordered another one off eBay and they said if was in excellent condition. Ever who had it before left a Memorex cd in it. I hooked it up and all It shows is PRO DISC. What's going on with these burners.
