Pioneer CD-Burner won't recognize any CD
My just-bought-used Pioneer PDR-509 CD-Burner won't recognize any CD I put into it. (This is a burner made, I think, in the late 90s).
So far I've tried Memorex and Verbatim CD-Rs. The manual that I printed out online says that a Verbatim should work. I called Pioneer customer service and the rep there said that I need to buy a CD-R that is is made ONLY for audio/music only. However, I don't think they make those anymore. The ones now are made for computers to burn data and music onto. He seemed to be saying that computers burn differently from stereo components like this one.
I've checked with Best Buy, CVS pharmacy, and an independent audio shop, and none of them sell audio-only CDs.
Do they still make what I'm looking for, or is this burner outdated technology that can't be used to burn anymore?
