SC-901 CD Won't Read

Recommended Posts

Mine is very intermittent with CD's I've burned. Store bought Cd's seem to work fine. Seems like it's a very well known problem, but has anyone figured out a solution? Any brand of blank CD's that work better than others? Burning programs options?

welcome to the club lol

we have 3 901s and a 900 and none of them really work reliably.  Until someone figures out what the problem with these things is, the only real solution is to install a 6 disc changer in the back.  The 900 is surplus so I'm going to break it open one of these days and see if I can figure out what's up.

Perfect solution, thanks! Found an Alpine CHM-S601 in one of my parts cars. Works like a champ!

You can refurbish the trough Volvo dealer for $200 and keep the original dash look and dolby pleasure.

I love the SC-901 and the dolby sound. No way I was taking that out! The Alpine unit I found and installed is a 6 disc trunk mount changer that connects to the SC-901

I think you're missing Tizio's point.

Even though it sounds like  your 901 is OK, Volvo offers a refurb program for the

Alpine built SC-900/901's. ( At least they used to ). I have a refurbed 901 in my dash right now!  ;)
