    Cdr500

    Hi,

    At the moment I've got the crappy factory fit tape deck in my 2001 Astra. I'm after a CDR500 (trying to keep as standard as possible) but before I splash my hard earned, I need to know whether or not it plays copied CDs (either CD-Rs or CD-RWs).

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Does not read CDRWs. I put one in the CDR500 on the same day I picked up my first GSi, it wont play and it wont reject out either, so changed the HU on the same day too

    Just for a note if you get offered the CDR600 tape deck with factory 4 disc multiplay, that doesn't play CD-R's
