Re: cd burning on windows media player
A DVD/CD combo burner has two lasers in it (one used to burn CD's and the other to burn DVD's) and if the one that is used to burn CD's has stopped working it would stand to reason that it would be able to burn DVD's but not CD's. If the computer isn't under warranty, I would just go buy another DVD/CD combo burner. If the computer is still under warranty, take it to an authorized repair station for that model/brand of computer. The only other thing you might try is to clean the drive with a CD cleaner disk.

What do you mean download cd's and dvd's? You don't download them, you
simply put them in the drive and play them. If you purchased a music cd
or a movie dvd that you want to play or watch, then just put it in the
drive. The system will recognize it and automatically open Windows
Media Player for you to play it or you can open it yourself if autoplay
is not active.
Exactly what is it that you are trying to do?
If you are talking about putting a blank cd or dvd into the drive to
copy music or a movie to it, that's another story and will take a while
to explain. You will basically need to make sure your CD/DvD drive can
burn CD's or Dvd's. Then you will need some type of burning software
(later versions of Window Media Player will burn).
Click Start/My Computer and look at your devices. if your DvD/CD Drive
is listed look for RW which means rewritable (it can burn or copy). If
it say DVDrw it can read and write dvd's. If it says CDrw it can read
and write cd's. You can also look on the drive door on the computer
where you would place the cd or dvd. If it says Rewritable CDrw (it
can write cd's) or DvDrw (it can write dvd's). If it says ROM (read
only media), that means it can Read Only and not write.
If the drive is rewritable then the software such as Media Player will
allow you to go find what you want to put on the cd or dvd. You have
two ways of putting things in the software to burn or write. You can
copy and paste, or you can drag and drop.
Try putting the burned disc into another computer to see if it reads it. If not then it could be an issue with the disc burner itself. The laser could be going bad and that would cause the burner not to burn discs properly.
Hi, Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)
If you are using windows Media Player to burn the cd you have to burn to an audio cd. You can only burn to mp3 cd if your car or home system canread them. Wma audio cannot normally be read by car or home audio. The file format is called WAV
Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help
hi frankie; you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:
1. cd-rom capable of burning? 2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable? -you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable. ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list 2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom). 3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon. 4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste 5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"
***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.
Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)
well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
