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.

    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 Business
    • Windows Vista Ultimate 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.

How do I burn files to a disk to play in DVP3140


I'm assuming you're using a recent-build Windows PC. Here's the link from Microsoft: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/burn-a-cd-or-dvd-in-windows-media-player. Media player must be recent enough in version to burn disk media--otherwise, you must obtain a software product that will burn media for you. Your PC must also be equipped with a CD, DVD, or Blu-Ray burner. CD-R disks easily prove available from discount stores, music stores, electronics stores, or online.

As for compatibility, Phillips indicates that CD-R is compatible. I hope that you don't have a problem. That depends upon the media manufacturer and how its product interacts with the Phillips. Compatibility likely won't prove a problem. Certainly, check that out before the next trip....

How do I format a CD-R in windows xp


Unless your using a program you don't really format a CD-R, sometimes you erase a CD-RW but if your looking to put data on a disk you insert your blank disk and then you can go to then disk and put files to be copied on the disk, Then you run the windows write to disk wizard. it is located under FIle and says " Write these files to CD " You can also burn music with windows media player by selecting the copy to CD or Media device or by selecting the Burn tab on the top of the media player on newer versions of windows media player.

I had to download all kinds of drivers to get my computer to do basics like viewing movies hearing music and finally burn music now i learned i can only save data(lots of songs at one time) or make a cd on...


cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know
Thanks,

Syncing voice recording from Sansa e260 to windows media


You cannot transfer from the player to the computer - sorry. The follwoing is the method you would use, but it won't work:
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mp3 player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

BURNING ITUNES MUSIC TO CD


Itunes does have digital rights management, which restricts the number of times you can burn the tracks you've downloaded. It's one reason I prefer sites like mp3fiesta.com who don't believe that if you've paid for the track you should be restricted in using it.

To burn music from Itunes you first have to make a playlist of the tracks you want to burn. Select New Playlist on the left, and drag the tracks you want to burn into this new playlist. When you've done that, right click the playlist name and select "burn playlist to disk."

This will ONLY work a finite number of times (I believe currently it's either 3 or 5) after which burning will be disabled for a track, and if that track appears on a playlist you won't be able to burn that playlist either.
