Windows media player 11 vista home basic will not burn cds

Ok if its not one thing its another w/this system.i went to burn a couple of cds,not something i do often,and ran into various problems.first off i am trying to copy cds that i have ripped to my comp via wmp(burn from library) the first copies came out completely blank.the burning process seemed normal..drag cd to righthand column..insert disc..press burn..burning process went through each song saying it had burned to disc..finalized..then ejected it..blank.i did notice the disc kicked out at 97% but said disc had burned successfully.also noticed no visible burn on disc itself.tried to play in cd player,kept coming up as NO DISC in player.put back incomputer burned again same process,this time something on disc but would not play.managed to rewind tracks on cd player and got disc to play from second song in but after rewinding more found first track only half there.does that make sense to you? i hope i have not lost you yet.so, thought maybe it was discs,or updates.went to windows got all available updates for wmp11 then went and got new brand of cd-r.same results.next attempt burned a completely empty disc.(meaning after burn process said completed there was no data on disc).i am friggin stumped.i recently had to erase my hard drive and reload system to fix dvd burner.on that note,the dvd burner burns just fine 100%every time using shrink3.2 and nero 7.can anyone help? thank you for your time.

    First Vista Windows Media Center would not download my videos. Installed VLS media player, changed extensions from .ASF to.ASX, and videos showed up. Fine. Tried to make a movie and burn them to a cd, and nothing shows up on cd except sound. This was no problem with my old Dell and Windows XP. Wish I still had it. The VLS player will not play the "burned" cds either. So nothing but audio shows up on the cds. Two hours with an HP specialist has done nothing so far. A message says that there is a missing "codec", which is not supported on any Windows download codec files. The codec is ADPCM Format (2), there are downloads out there, but suspicious of some sites. HELP.

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 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.

Can't burn cds in Windows Media Player 10


For security reasons you should upgrade to WMP 11 immediately. To burn cd's use another, specialized, program - it will be faster and it will have a better audio quality.
I use http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/CD-DVD-Tools/Windows-Portable-Applications-Power-Laser-Express.shtml
Free and it doesn't need install.

Error when I try to use Windows Media Player 10 or 11


Hi,
This error is generally the result of a corrupt or missing Custsat.dll file, usually located in the C:Program FilesWindows Media Player folder.To workaround this problem:
1. Remove the current Windows Media Player 10 install.
2. Download and install

Windows Media Player 11 for Windows Vista

or

wm_tn_wmp11xp.jpgDownload Player 11 for Windows XP

I tend to use VLC Player, as it plays everything I throw at it..

Hope this helps
