    when you installed the burner did you run the installation disk at any point?

    What kind of burner is it?

    What operating system are you using?

Is this internal or external? If it is external try a different port (USB?). Now days most hardware is plug and play and Windows should find this on it's own. Did you get software with the new unit. If so install that. If not go to Add Hardware Wizard in Control Panel. This will force Windows to search for new devices. If it still won't find it you may have to go to the Mfg. website to download the software. Of course be sure all cables are connected properly. Also check the jumpers on the unit (Master, Slave, Cable Select). Also check in Device Manager to see if it shows up there. If you know how to get into BIOS, see if it is showing up in the BIOS. Also is it saying it can not find the CD burning software? Maybe that needs to be re-installed also. That is all I can think of right now.

My windows media player will not let me burn cd's anymore. It says to verify that the burner is connected properly.


I had that same problem with windows 7. I could not burn cds from windows media player and I thought it was a problem with the OS. But when I used an external drive that I use to repair or set up new systems, I had no problem burning cds. So, try another burner and see if that might solve your problem.

Tsstcorp cddvdw ts-t633a hp touchsmart does not burn music cd


Hi

The most likely cause of this issue is that the CD drive has gone faulty so will require you to replace the unit

I basically downloaded imesh 12.0 blah blah blah but i dont have the burn button aanywhere its only the download button how do i burn my cds now??????????????


Hello shamsu sorry to hear that you cannot burn the cds/mp3 you download. Imesh only let you burn mp3 that have a green cd icon (free mp3) but don't worry you can still burn that mp3 using other burn applications, like cdburnerxp. I'm using it too because its free. If you need help just contact me. Thank you

Downloaded new version of itunes now i cant burn cds


you have to set the process up again Burning CDs in iTunes is easy and requires no setup.
But if you are an advanced user, you may want to tweak the settings a bit. Here's how you can set CD burning preferences in iTunes:

Open up iTunes on your computer. Click Edit and then select Preferences. Click the Advanced tab. Click the Burning tab within the Advanced tab. Set your preferred speed. From the drop-down menu, choose a burn speed for your CD burner. Choose a format. Audio CDs are for playing in your stereo or CD player. MP3 CDs can hold more songs, but need a special type of CD player to be read. Data CDs are for backing up songs, and can only be read by computers. Choose a gap between songs. By default, iTunes puts a gap of silence between each song. You can change this option from the drop-down menu. Use the Sound Check feature. This option will automatically adjust the volume on your songs so they will be the same volume on the CD. Include the CD text option. This will give the CD the title of the playlist to be displayed by a stereo or CD player that supports CD text. Click OK to save your preferences.

Wont burn cds , files , etc


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.
