Cd burner not working

When I try to burn an audio cd it gets past the converted stage and begins the burning process but half way through the first song the disc closes and an error message pops up saying, "Windows Media Player cannot burn the files to the CD. Verify that the disc is clean and not damaged. If necessary, select a slower recording speed or try a different brand of blank discs." I have tried all those things and nothing works. Please help me find the solution on what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!

Problems burning a cd with Sonic DigitalMedia Plus v7, I am on an HP notebook running XP

Try different software. I use CDBunerXP with no problems. It's free. Just don't install any extras (add-on programs) they include.

You should let it burn with no other activity during the process.

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.

What size dvd 's are used to burn a movie from my Acer aspire 5517? I tried to burn a dvd and cd once and was unable.

The process is rather simple once you get the hang of it. Many people use various conversion software programs to convert their movie file to prepare them for a DVD. Although in the beginning it is complicated but after a couple of stabs at it. You will be burning movies.
The size normally would be 4.7 Gig standard DVD-R you can use RW if you plan to rewrite over the movie later. It will hold a single movie or approx: 4-5 depending on size if the files are not converted. You can convert the movie files using Winavi this is what I use. or you can try to find any free burning software program out there. Winavi for me was the simplest to process it is a approx: 3 step process.
You will be burning the Video from the file once converted. The audio is included during the burning process. All you need is one DVD-R place in the burner. Then open the conversion software and open the video file and convert and burn that is about it. For higher graphics quality it will take more of the disk space for less or normal it will take approx half the disk that way you can fit two movies on one disk basically. So the process is converting the movie to be prepared for the DVD to work on standard players.
Check out Winavi this is what I would suggest maybe someone else knows a free software conversion program you can use. John

Can't get Backpack to let me convert to audio .WAV files.
if you download the free version of ashampoo burning studio9 it will burn cd's in the "au" audio format that cd's use. You must also make sure the car stereo will actually play a cdr disc, as some don't.

You need to burn your CDs in Audio format. That means that you cannot just burn your MP3 or WMA files, but you need to use the program which can convert those files to WAV format and write them so that ordinary CD players can reproduce them. Nero is such a program, among others.
