CD burner quits while burning

I have used both music match and record now. They both used to work perfectly. Record now quit working so I switched to music match which burns slower. They both will burn either the whole way through and quit when it is finishing up the disc, or they will quit part way through. Kicks out the cd and gives me a Burn Failed error. Hardware problem check CD. I have used different types of CD's and they all fail. I have windows XP service pack 2 and have recieved a lot of hotfixes.
Could the burner be worn out? My wife has burned about 150 CD's.

Hi There,

I sugesst that you look at the recent hotfixesyou have installed. I would install SP3, and take from there. I am sure that you have tried buring at a slower speed.

No the burner will not burn out, but could do with a clean, you can buy cleaning disk from a pc shop..

Please let me know how you get on - good luck

regards,

Philip

I have an un-formatted DVD-RW. I want to record music on it. First how do I format it so I can record music, and second, can I record music on a DVD-RW?


No you cannot record music to a DVD-RW. You must use CD-R media to record music as CD players cannot read DVDs. However you can burn the music to the DVD if you plan on using a DVD player to play the music. I beleive some recording hardware does allow you to use DVD's, but most use CD-R media or digital media such as a hard drive or flash media.

C.d burner has stopped working on my BR1180


As long as it indicates program content in the memory and can play the audio through an am p or headphones you should still be able to record the content onto your computer and burn it from there if your computer has a burner. I use Audacity which is a good freeware program.

When i try to burn some music onto my TDK cd the sonic record window appears everytime saying load a blank cd and ejects the TDK cd from the D drive. I have tried other TDK cd,s but the problem persists....


Sometimes there are firmware updates that update the compatibility of the burner with more brands and more formats. It could also be a bad batch of discs. Maybe try a different brand. Or do the CDs work in a different burner. Maybe the burner is bad or going bad. And just JFY, there are no CD+R only CD-R and RW

When i try to burn music...my cd burner quits at 12% and fails


the only solution is to buty an external cd/dvd burner with a buffer under burn built in in use a decent burning program like nero, or nti or any other ones that let you choose the burn speed as I use 8x for cd's and dvd's but somtimes the burner won't alow me to change speed.

I know this is the one way or have the burner looked at by an engineer thats the other solution.

Good luck with this one
