Summary: Sometimes the CD has to be loaded more than once for it to be recognized, and this is with a commercial CD, not one that has been burned from another. The USB part is kind of the pits in that you can see what you are playing if you have several folders and songs.
Summary: Unfortunately, I did not heed all the warnings on the net to keep away from Pyle saying Pyle is all basically junk. After about 6 weeks, the remote just stopped working. As far as playing MP3s, you have to rename all MP3s to have a very short file name for the player to recognize them.
Summary: Really wanted this player to work - love the idea of ripping CDs. Unfortunately, it would not read commercial CDs (store bought) - "NO DISC," just like T. Seavoy said. Manual is written in semi-broken English...wonder where it comes from. Chose TEAC CD-P1260 instead.
Summary: I bought this cd player from another outlet in NYC. When I first tried it out it did not work. I tried several disks that I had that work fine in my old Denon cd player. These were boughton disks, not homemade. The Pyle unit kept giving the message "no disk". Now I am out shipping costs to and from.
