Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer


Hi there. I used to be able to burn cds on my HP Pavillion dv6700 and it's now stopped letting me. I can still burn data files just not MP3's.  I had this problem once before and i think there was a software conflict, but I can't remember what I did. 
I have AVG virus protectino installed as well as Itunes, Safari, VLC Media Player, Adobe Photoshop CS4, Cool Edit 2, Windows Live Messenger & 
U-Torrent installed. Could any of these be the conflict? I had Mozilla and Opera too, but have uninstalled these to try and solve it.
I have 32 bit Vista Sp1 installed and I haev switched off the Aero Theme. 
Any ideas would be appreciated as I have spent 6 hours trying to solve this. 
Thanks for your help

    No I don't have them open at the same time. 

    I thought maybe it was Quick Time but I uninstalled that too and no change. 

    Any thoughts?

    I've tried i-tunes, windows media player and burn away. .. using mp3 and wma files. Each time I it starts to burn and then fails and ejects the disk. 
    In Itunes I get error message 4280 which seems to be common but no one knows the solution.

    What program are you using to burn? Are you attempting to burn mp3s to use as an audio CD? If so you need a program that converts, otherwise they should still burn as data files.

    The players can have a conflect with each other. Print shop, I doubt it. Cool edit?Why VLC media player? Can conflect with windows media player. You don't have them open at the same time, correct?

Cd burning error

If possible, use a second CD player/burner to burn a CD. If can't borrow one, either internal or external (USB), they are fairly cheap second hand. I suspect your CD player has become defective, maybe only in burn mode. Can you burn anything (eg, software) using this item ? ie is it only iTunes that's affected ?

Copy cds and dvds

If the notebook is preinstalled with Vista you can do windows native burning (With out any software) CD and DVD disks, where as XP has only CD native burning. in order to do this just right click on the folder what u want to and select send to CD/DVD drive option. hpoe this could resolve the issue.

Burning with disc creator

Do this instead and you will never have a problem with burning CDs again. Forget about Disc Creator. Go to Search for a CD/DVD burning program called ImgBurn. It is a free program download. Download it and follow instructions. It is simple to use and can burn music, movies, HD-DVD, BluRay and ISO images..good luck and let me know if you have any problems.

DVD / CD - RW Combo

When you say you cannot burn DVD's, do you mean you cannot burn DVD movies or do you mean you cannot burn data files to a DVD?

Burning DVD movies requires specific software to transcode the video and create a directory structure that DVD's players expect.

When you try to burn DVD's does it produce an error? What software are you using to burn?
