You need to update the firmware on your burner or invest in a newer model (might be easier, as some firmwares are insanely difficult to get a hold of)

I have a Dell inspiron 53os the cd keeps ejecting with error 2131 when trying to burn from my playlist. Ive been using Maxell CD-R's. Can you please help with this problem...


Welcome to Fixya.

Error 2131 is an error that is encountered with iTunes trying to burn a cd or dvd.

The Fix:

Update your drivers. I suggest downloading Device Doctor, a safe freeware that scans your machine and will look for the latest driver updates of the computer's devices.

1. Click Download.
2. Click Save.
3. Go to My Documents > Downloads Folder.
4. Click Device Doctor's .exe file. Installation will start.
5. After the installation, the application will scan for driver updates. Just click download.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to come back if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I have a Toshiba laptop and when i try burn cds in itunes i get error 2131. plz help


First uninstall and then re install. That would work. This is a common problem. May be related with the firmware. What is the OS? Often occurs in Vista. You will be able to burn CD-RW disks though. And VERBATIM or MEMOREX brand discs (CD-R) You need a firmware update. Dell have issued a firmware upgrade but not sure with Toshiba recently.
This worked for some machines http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=error+2131 (Must follow the instructions).
Check new links http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/faq.jsp?service=UK&from=faq_selection&FID=TIU0000003bb6 You must follow the info. And Identify the device type before doing anything.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

ERROR 2131 WHEN ON ITUNES


Hello,

According to the support page the firmware update fixes the iTunes
issue with “The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error
occurred (2131) when you tried to burn playlist to disc for blank CD-R
media. the region code error for DVD movie playback.
NOTE Please DO NOT USE THIS UPDATE FOR A TOSHIBA LAPTOP the computers
may have the same optical drive but the firmware updates may not be
identical and flashing with the wrong firmware may damage your drive”.
This isn’t just the Toshiba Equium A200 laptop getting an error of
2131, the other notebook’s manufacturers also established the source
of the problem and they have to provide a firmware update to download
and fix this problem. The best thing you can do is wait until Toshiba
provide a firmware update specifically for the TSST TS-L632H version
TO01 drive in your laptop.

Please let me know if you have any fuhrer questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Trying to burn a playlist from my itunes account and get 4261 error message, what does this mean?


Hi there,

The ITunes error 4261 appears when attempting to burn CD's. The error code can appear for several reasons, including a faulty CD-RW, used CD's or a slow speed burner.

The error may also occur when you are trying to burn a file that has Dynamic Random Memory from ITunes & you have exceeded your permitted attempts.

The error can also happen if you are accessing the files from a different PC than where it was registered.

Try slowing your burn speed to 16x or even 12x or use Nero Express or Windows Media Player to burn your MP3 files. Other techniques for resolving this error include using new CD's & activating DLA in the Drive Properties.

I truly hope that one of these solutions clearly resolves your problem. Good luck.

Kindest regards,

Ste

It can be possible the drive has gone bad.
You can try updating the firmware of the drive and in case still no go get the drive replaced.
Also, you can call Apple Support because they might be aware and may be they have a fix for the same.
