You need to look at how much RAM and SWAP space you have on the PC. Buffer errors are most times because you don't have enough temp space on the drive or RAM memory to complete the project.

one thing you can do is turn off all the unecessary programs that are running in the background. Also, go to CONTROL PANEL, MY COMPUTER, then choose SYSTEM. Click on ADVANCED and choose PERFORMANCE/SETTINGS. under the ADVANCED tab check VIRTUAL MEMORY to see how much temp space is allocated on the drive and increase it if necessary, or just choose to let windows manage it. Save and close it,then reboot and see if that helps.

I have been attempting to burn a cd from my itunes library, it keeps giving me an error 2630. Yes I am using a new blank cd.


What type of CD media does your burner support? CD+R CD-R, CD-RW.
A few suggestions:
CD-RW or re-writables do not support audio burning to CD format.
Are songs being burned as a data disc(unplayable files) or CD audio?
Have you exceeded the 700 to 800 MB range of data that a CD can hold?
Try dropping a couple of songs off the list and see what happens.
Try rebooting the computer and try burning again.
Down load a free version of Nero software and try to burn the CD from there.

My CD drive won't let me burn CD's anymore. Why?


Try choosing a different set of songs, if still your CD burning fails, try copying large chunk of data or a data cd to cd copy if possible. If this also fails, you have to give your cd burner for service / replacement based on the warranty entitled.

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

I bought iTunes card, bought the songs i wanted, but it wont work


Your CD Drive may be just a CD/DVD reader Drive may not be able to burn onto CD/DVD,s my dads laptop cant, he gets same error when he trys, so he had to use a different cd/dvd burner on a desktop.

If you have a desktop or laptop and you are 100% sure it can burn to CD/DVD,s then i reccomend you get a program called "ULTRA ISO" it is shareware but allows burning up to 300mb per cd for free before it asks you to pay so as long as you keep cd files below a total of 300mb you,d never have to pay. if its actually ITUNES which is reporting the error then your CD/DVD drive may require its own software before itunes will reconise it as CD/DVD burner drive. windows media player can report this type of error also.

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes


I had the same promblem. What you should do is make a serperate file on you desktop and drag all of your music that you burn or download to that folder first. Drag it to Itunes after that. Now, you only have to drag the songs to Itunes if you want them on there for you iPod. Take the songs from the folder, and drag them to windows media players burn list. Insert a blank disc and you should be good. Keep in mind that you can only do this if you put downloaded or burned music to the created folder first. If you take it to Itunes first, you will have to re-download or re-burn your music again.
Hopefully this helped you guys.

Can't Burn Dual-Layer Disks


First, be sure your DVD burner is capable of burning dual-layered discs- Second, it may be rather an issue of copy protection on the disc. Have you succesfully copied commercial DVD's in this fashion? I'm unsure if I'm allowed to mention any software that might assist you in that regard- google is your friend.

Cd dvd combo drive


Can you be more specific about which error messages you are getting? This is important because it will tell us whether the laser or motor is burned out, or if you are just being stopped by copy protection.
