Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes

I bought my toshiba satellite A215 laptop in february 2008. model # PSAFGU 05F01D I didn't try to burn a CD until May. I insert the cd, try to burn an itune playlist. The CD reads the playlist and then it initializes. Then the CD ejects and I get an error message. "an attempt to burn a disc failed. unknown error 2131."

I brought my laptop to an apple store, showed them what happens and they told me it was a software problem with toshiba. But in an effort to help, they searched and found that there were hundreds of users encountering the same problem. They found a link where I might be able to down load corrective measures over the internet but they would not let me stay and do it at the store. I was leaving town for the summer and never addressed it. Now I am back and can't find that link. and not even sure I will know what to do as my tech skills are basic.

In the meantime, I've downloaded the most current version of itunes and I think the error message is different.

Do you know what I am referring to?

Thank you, Susan

I had the same promblem. What you should do is make a serperate file on you desktop and drag all of your music that you burn or download to that folder first. Drag it to Itunes after that. Now, you only have to drag the songs to Itunes if you want them on there for you iPod. Take the songs from the folder, and drag them to windows media players burn list. Insert a blank disc and you should be good. Keep in mind that you can only do this if you put downloaded or burned music to the created folder first. If you take it to Itunes first, you will have to re-download or re-burn your music again.
Hopefully this helped you guys.

Not reading cd roms


I would say that could indicate that the CD you are trying to burn files onto is either partly written to OR which I suspect incompatible media type. Yes some burners are fussy, dislike certain makes and or types - or + eg CDR+ I've had this problem a couple of times over the 10 tears I've been burning discs and can never recall which ones are the least likely to fail, i.e. some are very compatible with just about all burners. Check Burner specs.

Go to www.ebay.com Type: Make and Model of your laptop and refine search DVD driver, you will be presented with a choice of DVD units at different prices, stay away from the used drivers, "they are a gamble" But you need a DVD/R-WRITER to burn discs and watch movies.
