Hi,

you must be doing something diffrently since when they worked. double check that everything is ok, and try to play the music cd with another program, windows media player for example.

Wow... That is just bad Luck.
Your Files on Itunes are corrupted or just not there. i'm not sure how. your LaCie drive may have had a virus or some other such thing. try loading the files back on to your computer again, and make sure you put the files in the correct folder. one thing that worked for me when my itunes library failed, was when you copy the music files onto your computer, double click the the actual file icon, as if you wanted toplay them. this will tell itunes that the file still exists (and it may also play the song). your Parrellels problem is strange. i think that, like you mentioned, you may have to delete the previous VM installation, so to revert to the one you imported.
Good Luck...

How to Play iTunes Music on Windows Media Player


There's a good chance when you buy music from the iTunes Store that the files that you download will be copy protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM system. It's a great system that protects the rights of the artist and publisher by making it difficult for the consumer to distribute copyrighted material. However, DRM can also be very restrictive by stopping you playing legally purchased music on your MP3 compatible hardware. So, what happens if you want to play your DRM'ed music on a non-iPod?

This tutorial will show you a way to produce DRM-free music that doesn't require any special software that you would normally need to buy. All you'll need is the iTunes software, and a blank CD (preferably a rewritable (CD-RW)).

Before we begin, check for any updates that are available for your iTunes installation, or download the latest version from the iTunes website。


Configuring iTunes to burn and rip an audio CD

CD Burner Settings: In order to set up the iTunes software to burn an audio CD, you first need to go into the settings menu and select the correct disc format. To do this, click on the Edit tab on the main menu and select Preferences from the menu list. On the preferences screen, select the Advanced tab, followed by the Burning tab. First, make sure your CD burner is selected from the drop-down menu alongside the CD Burner option. Next, Select audio CD as the disc format that is to be written by your CD drive.

CD Import Settings: While you are still in the preferences menu, click on the Importing tab to access the CD ripping settings. Verify that the On CD Insert option is set to Ask to Import CD. Next, set the Import Using option to a format of your choice; the MP3 Encoder is your best choice if you want to import audio CDs as MP3 files that play on virtually all compatible devices. Choose an encoding bitrate from the Setting option; 128Kbps is the normal setting that is good enough for the average listener. And finally, make sure the Automatically Retrieve CD Track Names From Internet and Create File Names With Track Numbers and both checked. Click the OK button to save your settings.

Making a custom playlist

To be able to burn your DRM copy protected songs to audio CD you will need to make a custom playlist (File > New Playlist). You can add music tracks to a playlist easily by dragging and dropping them from your music library to your newly created playlist. For instructions on how to achieve this, why not follow our tutorial on How to Create a Custom Playlist Using iTunes.

While creating a playlist, make sure that the total playing time (displayed at the bottom of the screen) doesn't exceed the capacity of the CD-R or CD-RW you are using; typically, the total playing time of a 700Mb CD is 80 minutes.


Burning an Audio CD Using a Playlist

Once you have created a playlist, simply left-click it (located under the playlists section in the left pane), and then click on the File tab on the main menu, followed by Burn Playlist to Disc. The CD drive tray should now automatically eject so you can insert a blank disc; ideally use a rewriteable disc ( CD-RW) so you can reuse it multiple times. Before iTunes starts burning the DRM protected songs, it will remind you that creating an audio CD is for your own personal use only; once you have read this notice, click on the Proceed button to start burning.

Ripping an audio CD

The final step in this tutorial is to import (rip) the songs that you burned onto audio CD, back to digital music files. We have already configured iTunes (step 1) to encode any audio CD that is inserted into the CD drive as MP3 files and so this stage of the process will be mostly automatic. To start ripping your audio CD, simply insert it into your CD drive and click the Yes button to start. For a more in-depth look at this process, read the tutorial on How to Import CD Tracks Using iTunes.

Once this stage is complete, all the files that have been imported into your music library will be free from DRM; you will be able to transfer them to any device that supports MP3 playback.

Note:The only downside in using this method is that if you have a lot of files that you need to convert, then it ends up a slow and tedious process. With this in mind, use a legal drm removal tool if you have a large quantity that you need to convert.

Cannot burn cd from Musicmatch from Dell Optiplex GX260. Error.


Hello,

My name is ArmyMason, I am here to help you. So you have an issue burning music to CD's. What is the format of the music? MP3, WMA, or WAV? Is the music protected by copyright in which doesn't allow you to burn it to CD? Right click on the song and click properties you will be able to see if its copyright protected there. Also some burning software only works with newer CD drives. I had an issue once burning a DVD with this software I bought because the DVD player wasnt supported. Once I upgraded the DVD Burner I was able to burn DVD's. Those are the only things that could be stopping you from burning music.

Hope that helps,
ArmyMason

Trying to birn cd it will go through all the steps even fializes but when I play it back it plays back on computer but will not play back on any other cd player


There are two types of music cds. One is still a data disk meaning will be able to add more songs and the songs keep their file names. The other type is compatible for most cd players but once it is made, songs can not be added afterward.

Open up the cd on your computer and look at the songs. If the songs have their original file names then you have used the wrong format. If the songs are lists in tracks (Track 1, Track 2, etc.), then it is the correct format and the problem is the disk or the cd player(s) you tried it on won't accept it.

MUSICMATCH PROBABLY CONVERTED YOUR FILES TO A NEWER FORMAT LIKEACC OR MP4 , THE PLAYERS SOFTWARE IS NOT UPDATED ENOUGH TO PLAY THESE NEW FORMATS , CHECK YOUR MUSIC FORMATS IN AN EXPLORER WINDOW AND IT WILL TELL U WHAT FORMAT THE SONG IS. WE KNOW YOUR PLAYER WILL PLAY A WAV FORMAT, BURN A STANDARD WAV. FORMAT DISC ON THE SAME TYPE OF DISK AND IF IT PLAYS ITS THE ADVANCE FORMATS THATS YOUR PROBLEM.
