How to burn a disc from files downloaded to the computer from my recorder

I am trying to burn a CD of the files downloaded to the computer from my recorder. My computer is equipped with a CD writer and I have "Roxio" software, which accepts .wav format. However, everytime I try to burn a CD of these files, I get an error message saying that the format is unacceptable. I bought the recorder because the guy at Radio Shack told me I would be able to copy the files to a disc once they were transferred to the computer. Any assistance or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you, in advance, for your courtesies and response to this inquiry. Ruth

How do I format a dvd disc


You don't have to. DVD's and CD's are already formatted from factory. But if you are having problems to record on (burn) them probably your computer is not capable for DVD burn, just CD's. But if it is equipped for burning then try this:
See alsoFormat a CD or DVD


Before you can copy files to a CD or DVD, the disc must first be prepared using a process called formatting. There are several ways to format a CD or DVD disc. Your choice of format determines which computers and other devices will be able to read the disc.

  1. Insert a disc into your computer's CD or DVD drive.

  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to disc.

  3. In the Burn a disc dialog box, type a name for your new disc.

  4. Click Show formatting options, and then click one of the following formatting options:

    • Live File System

    • Mastered

  5. Click Next to prepare the disc.

    Now you can copy files to your disc using whichever method you selected.

How do i download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.

Marantz cdr420 recorded media stored on harddrive.played back all fine unplugged now it says no valid files when i try to burn the disc but the drive reads full.


If you are attempting to burn mp3 files as an audio CD, then that's the problem. You cannot burn audio CDs from MP3 files. You have to burn MP3 files as a data CD and not as an audio CD. See excerpt taken from page 33 in the CDR420 user guide. "Prepares CDs that can be played on standard CD players. Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) uses uncompressed PCM, .wav files. The CDR420 does not convert MP3 files to PCM so MP3 files are ignored if you choose AUDIO as the CD TYPE"

But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

Need to download from mp3 player to a disc, is it possible


First, you will have to hook your Sansa to your computer. Then, you will need to double-click My Computer, double-click the icon or drive letter that corresponds to your Sansa, and then open the Voice folder. Find the recording that you want to back up and drag it to your desktop or other temporary location on your computer. Then you will most likely want to convert the recorded WAV file to mp3 format using Media Monkey or some other free conversion tool. Then use disc-burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn the converted file to CD. Have fun!

CD Burning gets stuck


Try this: : Decreasing the burn speed If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)
  1. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  2. Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
  3. Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
  4. Click OK and close the My Computer window. Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6. If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
  1. Place a blank disc into the drive. NOTE: If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
  2. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  3. Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
  4. If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc. If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps. Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive c00368150.gif
  5. Look for a Recording tab: If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
    2. Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
    3. Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
    4. Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
    5. With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane. Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW) c01367502.jpg
    6. Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs. NOTE: A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
    7. Click OK , and close Registry Editor.

How do you burn a cd on the travelmate 290 ?


Windows XP CD Copy Windows XP has CD-Recordable (CD-R) disc burning support for most CD writers.
8b118c9.gif First set your CD-recording options:
  • Open "My Computer"
  • Right-click your CD-R drive and select "Properties". See figure BK-1.
  • Select the "Recording" tab (if this tab isn't available, your device doesn't support CD burning).
  • Check the box to "Enable CD recording on this drive".
  • Select the drive to hold the temporary files (before the system burns a CD-R disc, the system writes the files to be recorded to an intermediary area - this area must have enough free space to hold an entire CD's content).
  • Select the CD recording speed (Fastest, 4X, 2X, and 1X).
  • Select whether to eject the media after recording.
  • Click OK.

Perform the following steps to record to a CD-R:
  • Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD burner.
  • Copy or drag the files or folders to be recorded to the CD-R drive, or right-click on the files or folders and select Send To, Writable CD.
7f66e80.jpg
  • After you have copied all the files, select the CD-R drive from "My Computer" and you'll see the waiting files as "Files to add to the CD."
  • Right-click the CD-R drive, and select Write to CD.
  • Enter a name for the CD-R disc, and click Next.
  • The files will be written to the CD-R disc.
  • After the system writes all the files, it will eject the CD-R disc (if you chose that option above).
  • Click Finish.
