  1. Have you tried making a new CD on a different computer then trying that?


    Thanks for the suggestion, we have used certainly 3 or more different Laptops, will also try my PC, the problem is that at the start everything can work fine and appear to solve the problem until about 30 mins use


    Just skimmed through and I don't think this has been mentioned - have you tried burning on a slower speed?

    In my experience some players have trouble recognising discs that have been burned at high speed, especially if your burner is getting on a bit. I don't use cd's in my playout but my technics home stereo sometimes throws a hissy fit with a cd burned at 52x


    My home system seems happiest with a maximum 24x burn so I would recommend you try burning a disc at the slowest possible speed your writer supports and test it out. If it proves ok you can gradually increase speed to find your maximum stable write speed.


    Thanks for the suggestion, I remember trying this and it having no effect, I need to do some more testing though

  2. Second that, the new single she said is very good!


    Heres a few which I think will be big:


    Eenie Meenie - Sean Kingston ft. Justin Bieber

    Riding Solo - Jason De Rulo

    Imma be rocking that body - Black Eyed Peas

    Dizzee Disco - Dizzee Rascal


    Also for the club DJs on the remix packages for new songs I reccommend:


    Until you were gone (Buzz Junkies Mix) - Chipmunk ft. Esmee

    Dirty Picture (Red Top Mix) - Taio Cruz ft. Kesha

    In the air (Axwell Mix) - TV Rock ft. Rudi

    Do you remember (Ruff Loaderz) - Jay Sean

    Telephone (Crookers Mix) - Lady GaGa ft. Beyonce

    Pursuit of happiness (Steve Aoki Mix) - Kid Cudi

    Im in the house (Warren Clarke) - Steve Aoki

    I Am (Moto Blanco) - Mary J Blidge

    Carry Out (Chew Fu) - Timbaland and Timberlake

    Omg (Ripper Commercial Club Mix) - Usher ft. Will.I.Am

    Say its over (Cahill) - NDubz


    Hope this helps!


    Will check those out


    Dizzee's new hit will be a summer anthem, anything he touches is gold at the moment!


  3. Still having the same problem guys & girls.


    I sent the Decks back to the dealer and got a brand new set sent back but I am having the same problems as before.


    All of my CDs work on the Older pioneers, some will work on the Numarks and then stop working after 20-30 mins of using the CD Players, some work after taking around 60 seconds to read the disc and some dont recognise the disc at all.


    I have tried different makes of CD and there doesnt seem to be a common pattern.


    Considering just getting a refund and purchasing some other CD players, Pioneers seem to be twice the price, any suggestions?



  4. In Hip Hop, Drake will be the next BIG thing, he is already on the radar but I believe he is still just 23 and has already worked with Jay Z, Dre, Eminem, Young Money etc


    Another is Plan B, his new album is very commercial, completely different from his first if anyones heard both and well worth a listen, very 60s/70s vibe to some of the tracks

  5. Did a 21st last night at a local CIU club.


    Went well, about 70 people and dancefloor full from 10-12, after one of her friends did a session on his guitar and sung (very well actually) so that broke up the night very nicely :)


    And the Entertainment guy there hunted me down and got my number, wants to book me for next year so all in all it went very well!

  6. DAve, a few to check out (available on Itunes)


    Chery Cole - Fight for this love (Moto Blanco Radio Edit)

    Alexandra - Bad Boys (Dance Remix - not sure of the exact title)

    David Guetta ft Akon - Sexy Chick

    Jay Sean - Down (Chasing Pluto Remix)

    Kesha - Tik Tok (Tom Neville Remix)

    Lady Gaga - Bad Romance (Starsmith Remix)

    Pixie Lott - Cry Me Out (Bimbo Jones Remix)

  7. Hello all,


    I hope you are all well and looking forward to the busy season!


    I am having seemingly unexplainable problems with my Numark CDN88s.


    I purchase a number of my songs through Itunes and then rip them to CD, the CD players do not seem to read the discs, but they work in other CD players including my Pioneers and my home stereo.


    I have tried converting all songs to MP3 and then I get the same results.


    I could put it down to the CDs being Burned but the Numarks do play most copied CDs and have done for the years I have had them.


    A similar problem developed with them about 6 months ago, I sent them back to the company I got them from and they sent me a brand new set (i think) and now I am having the same issue


    Any help is greatly received



  8. Hi All,


    I have a set of CDN88s (under warranty) and they have started playing up.


    When playing CD-Rs it seems random as to which it will recognise, normal CDs seem to be OK...


    Not sure if anyone has had this problem before or has any suggestions???


    Thanks in advance

  9. Turned my kit on today to show a couple of mates my new PCDJ set up and smoke starts coming out of one of the CD drawers, cut the power, disconnected it and turned the rest of the kit on and its all fine.


    WHat could have caused it?


    If I open the casing, what should I look for apart from the obvious?


    THe CD Decks are CDN88s, can I buy a replacement pair or spare parts from anywhere?


    THanks in advance

  10. I discovered this revelation whilst talking to the owner of my local Disco shop yesterday and it confused myself and my brother that was with me!


    One of my speakers blew at an open day I did due to a loud woman shouting down the Mic (lesson learnt) so I took it in and got him to change the driver.


    I told him that on my newer amp (which is pretty powerful) I normally run it at half volume to make sure they dont blow again and he said that what I am doing could damage the speakers as much as overpowering them.


    He said unless I turn the amp volume to full and the Mixer volume down then I may be coming back more with blown speakers...


    Can anyone else give their opinion on this?
