Then I get command to drag items to burn, which I did.
I inserted blank disk and pressed commmand to start burn as prompted
It rejected disk and open door to drive.. I used another disk. same
result.
I think the program is corrupt and do not know how to fix it. I am
using windows Vista upgrade( windows XP plus Vista)
Has anybody any idea how to solve my problem??
Windows player works all right insofar as loading and playing music,
but I cannot burn.

Only way to fix in Vista is to reinstall Vista.

    Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.



    APPLIES TO


    • Windows Vista Ultimate
    • Windows Vista Starter
    • Windows Vista Home Premium
    • Windows Vista Home Basic
    • Windows Vista Enterprise
    • Windows Vista Business 64-bit Edition

    • Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit Edition
    • Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit Edition
    • Windows Vista Enterprise 64-bit Edition



    After you install Windows Vista on a computer that uses an SiI Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment (PATA) chip from Silicon Image, the computer does not recognize an attached optical drive as a drive that supports recording. Therefore, you cannot use the computer to burn CDs or DVDs.

    This problem occurs because the SCSIport driver does not populate the correct number of bytes for an IOCTL_STORAGE_QUERY_PROPERTY Request Packet (IRP) when the device does not return a correct serial number.

    Service pack information


    loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');

    To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows Vista or download the following Hotfix.

There are tons of other applications available for free that you can use to burn with in the meantime!

If you want to try and fix Media Player, I would first uninstall it from add/remove programs first (if possible) then reinstall it by running Microsoft Updates. If you can't uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs, just try running Microsoft Updates - there may be an update to Media Player available that you're missing.

When i burn any dvd with it it wont work on any dvd player


Make sure your DVD players support the kind of disks you are using (DVD+R or DVD-R etc)
Also, when you are burning a disk, try making sure you choose the option to "Finalize" the disk.

Those are two of the simplest answers generally
Hope it helps.

When I try to burn a disk it tells me I have to check each song individually. This is crazy. Isn't there another way. Select all doesn't do it.


What to do is to create a new playlist. Then go to your music library and from here you can drag the tracks that you want to record onto the playlist. Once you have select all your tracks you can then burn that playlist to CD. Hope this helps.

I'm trying to burn some songs in Windows Media Player, it's around 300 MBs of songs going to a 700 MB CD-R. Windows says I can only burn around 15-17 of the songs on one disc.I have no idea why it does...


Hey!

Windows Media Player would only allow you 15-17 songs because the type of disc that it will create would be a music CD.

If you want to put in a lot of songs on a CD, it should be a data CD not a music CD.

I suggest you use a burning software that will allow you to make a data CD.

Here's a link that will show you free burning softwares. Click here to get there.

Hope this helps! :D

I have a dell optiplex755 and i have created a playlist in windows media and when i try to burn a disk it tells me to connect a burner and restart. i have not tried to burn a disk before on this computer...


Look closely right at the front of the CD drive - does it say CD ROM or CD/RW? Or possibly DVD ROM or DVD/RW?
If you have a drive that says "ROM" on the front, it's not a burner.
If your drive does say "RW" then it may not be enabled. Go to My Computer (or Computer, depending on if you have Vista or 7) and right click on the CD drive. Choose properties, and look through the tabs to make sure that drive is enabled for recording.

Hope this helps! If so, please leave a rating!

How can I burn a CD or DVD of a "movie" I made with photos and music? I am using Microsoft Picture It Express 9. Any help would be great!


Hi!

Firs of all you need to think on in what format you having that movie in. I guess you want to play it in a ordinary dvd and and they are restricted, all dvds plays mpeg bur not all plays dvix,xvid etc

When you have decided the format you need a burning program, one of the best is Nero ( http://www.nero.co ) its not free but you can download and try it for 30 days.
Another program is cdburner ( http://www.cdburnerxp.se/ ), that oen is free, not as good as nero in my opinion..but..its free

After installing the burner program you need to select if you need a cd or a dvd disk to burn on, a cd takes 700mb, there are cd:s that takes 800mb but they are more expensive. A dvd takes 4,7gb.

Now its time to burn, start the program select the disk you going to burn on, then its just to drag and drop the moviefile you want to burn. When the movie file is in place, start burning, select the burning speed, dont burn to fast since you burning a movie, i recoemnd a speed of 15-20x speed

After burning, your done! take out the disk ans enjoy your movie!
Let me know how it goes

Good luck
Nic

PS, i asume that you have a cd/dvd burner on your pc

There are many different formats of music, so many it gives me a headache. I will try to help you as best I can. First I need to know what format you saved your music as in your "My Music" folder. ie: wma, mp3, wav etc... Now store bought cd's have a format all there own *.cda, If you use Microsoft media player to copy your original music cd's into your My Music folder you can tell it what format you want to have upon ripping your cd's. I believe that roxio offer's two types of disk burning as well
Data/Music make sure your using the correct platform.

''i want to burn mp3 music on cd for my car stereo, but it won't p


if you went to 'audio burning' in nero and chose 'audio cd' then you should really not have any problems because it will play on any cd player. If you still have trouble with this though try burning an audio cd in windows media player instead. Create a playlist, it cannot be longer than 70 mins (i normally max at 68 minutes) then select burn playlist. This should play in your car with no problems.

I hope this helps
