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?

It skips

Are these burned CDs or store bought? I used to have an issue with burned CDs using an older ver. of burning software that would cause the same thing to happen in car head units.

If this is the issue try updating or switching to another burning software. CDburnerXP is a great freeware software for burning CDs.

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.

CD Burner stops in middle of burning

Hi KayGo, People hate going over the basics but gotta ask: -Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner? -Do you have any problems reading CDs? -What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi. -Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks? -What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect. -How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long. -Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - Let us know if you need any other assistance and don't forget to rate the posting.
