Using drag and drop on a CD rewritable gives only a lot of headaches, and often does not work.

You need to use a software to copy cds, download and install from one of the following websites:

How to burn dvd and cds?


If you are using windows xp pro or windows 7, you should be able to just copy the files directly to your DVD drive under My Computer (or Computer) with a blank disk in the drive. When you are ready to burn them to the disk, right-click on the drive and choose the option to Burn to Disc.

Otherwise I also use a free option called CDBurnerXP which does a very good job.

Hi,

Follow the steps given below

Connect the External CDRW to the PC and you should be able to find the green light glowing and CDRW should make some noise like spinning.

Press the Eject button the CDRW and It should open. Put in the Software disk that you have received from your PC manufacturer and it should display the contents on the PC Screen

If not, Click on START button - Click on My Computer - You should find the CDRW displayed in Drives Location.

Double click on it and it should display the CD Contents.

This indicated the CDRW is working.

When cdrw is inserted into d12 digital recorder msg display says no disc drive and after about 20mins whole thing freezes until cdrw is removed


try using a different type/brand of cdrw you may have a bad batch of cheap cdrw as for the freezing if this does not fix the problem try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
good luck with this

I have an asus crw-5232A3 model cdrw drive. Im running winxp. The orange light on the cd drive stays on when a disc is inserted. No discs will read or write but windows says the device is working properly...


They do wear out and break, sounds like an older model. A new DVD/CD burner can be bought for about £15.
You could try a different ide cable from the motherboard, and that the cables are connected properly.
Give that a try before you look for a new one

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes


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.

According to hp help and support
When using iTunes for Windows you may get a disc failed error. An unknown error occurred (4280)
In this situation, if you attempt to burn a disc, the following error message may display: The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error occurred (4280) You can resolve this error message by modifying a file in the iTunes CD Configuration folder. First, you need to verify the model of optical drive present. Verifying the Model of the CDRW/DVD Drive Verify that your PC has a Sony CD-RW/DVD CRX830E optical drive installed:
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. In the iTunes Help menu, click Run CD Diagnostics .

    • If another drive name is listed, this document does not apply to your computer.
Resolving the Error Message When an IDE/CdRomSONY_CDRW/DVD_CRX830E model optical drive is present, do the following steps to resolve the error message: CAUTION: Take care in using the following steps.
  1. Close iTunes and any other files and software that are open.

  6. In the Notepad window, scroll to the bottom lines of the file gcdrtype.cfg .
  7. Locate the line that reads: DRVGENERALFLAGS = MODESEL_NOPAGE01 | MODESEL_NOPAGE05
  8. At the end of this line add " | NOSENDOPC " (the first character is a blank space), so the line then reads: DRVGENERALFLAGS = MODESEL_NOPAGE01 | MODESEL_NOPAGE05 | NOSENDOPC
  9. At the top of the Notepad window, click File , Save .
  10. At the top of the Notepad window, click File , Exit to close the window.
  11. At the top of the CD Configuration window, click File , Close to close the window
