Target drive not ready


This message means that the burning drives are not recognizing the blank media. There are a few things to try and remedy this though the unit may need repaired.
First, try using all of the duplicator bays by burning to another drive bay. If all other drives burn fine then the one drive may need to be replaced.
2nd, try a different blank CD or using a different brand. The most common fault for this message is a bad blank disk.
3rd, It is OK per Microboards to open the unit and check for a loose drive cable. A loose cable can cause this error too.
Finally, try cleaning the drive bays by using compressed air to blow any dust out of the system.
If the error still continues then call Microboards tech support at 952 556 1639 to set up a repair.

Cd burning


Usually when you get a 4300 error when you are writing to a disk it means one of two things.

1. The communication from the motherboard to the cd-rom is bad. Meaning a bad or loose cable connected to the cd-rom drive.

or

2. You have another cd-rom drive installed or another IDE device installed in your PC and they are both set up on Master or Slave and the operating system is having an issue sending the data to the right device.

If neither of these are YOUR issue, then I would take the CD-ROM drive out and check it on a friends/family member's pc to make sure it's not the drive itself.

I get unknown error code 4260 when trying to burn cd


This is a disk error issue make sure if on windows you have the drivers for your CD drive(start>right click computer>click device manager) and also try an different make of blank disk.

verbatin and imation disks burn without this error, stick to CD-R or CD+R disks the re-writables are notrious for not writing properly

this may solve your problem hope it helps

Can't eject Install CD Mac OSX Panther


Hi GInette, sorry to hear you are having problems,
here is how you eject a disk that is stuck in the optical drive of a Mac.
Shut down the Mac.
press the power on button
VERY QUICKLY, press the mouse button, the trackpad button and hold it down firmly until the disk ejects.
This is a built-in hardware command independent of your system and always works when doe right, unless the optical drive is no longer recognized by the Mac or if something is inhibiting it's ejection.
Good luck

Every time i ty to burn a cd i get an error message saying slow down recording speed or try another brand of disc i have done this but i still get the same message


Get a CD laser cleaning kit and clean the laser. If this does not work I strongly suspect the laser is going weak and can no longer properly burn in to the disks. I doubt it is a software fault. The fix is to change the drive to prove that the drive's laser is actualy going bad.

According to hp help and support
When using iTunes for Windows you may get a disc failed error. An unknown error occurred (4280)
In this situation, if you attempt to burn a disc, the following error message may display: The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error occurred (4280) You can resolve this error message by modifying a file in the iTunes CD Configuration folder. First, you need to verify the model of optical drive present. Verifying the Model of the CDRW/DVD Drive Verify that your PC has a Sony CD-RW/DVD CRX830E optical drive installed:
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. In the iTunes Help menu, click Run CD Diagnostics .
  3. Insert an audio CD in the optical drive.
  4. Click OK .
  5. View the results in the CD Diagnostics window:
    • If IDE/CdRomSONY_CDRW/DVD_CRX830E is listed, proceed with the procedure below to resolve the error message.
    • If another drive name is listed, this document does not apply to your computer.
Resolving the Error Message When an IDE/CdRomSONY_CDRW/DVD_CRX830E model optical drive is present, do the following steps to resolve the error message: CAUTION: Take care in using the following steps.
  1. Close iTunes and any other files and software that are open.
  2. Click Start , My Computer , Drive C: , Program Files , iTunes , and CD Configuration to view the files in the CD Configuration folder.
  3. Locate the file gcdrtype.cfg in the CD Configuration folder.
  4. Right-click the file gcdrtype.cfg .
  5. In the drop-down menu, click Open (you may need to select Notepad ) to edit the file gcdrtype.cfg in Notepad .
  6. In the Notepad window, scroll to the bottom lines of the file gcdrtype.cfg .
  7. Locate the line that reads: DRVGENERALFLAGS = MODESEL_NOPAGE01 | MODESEL_NOPAGE05
  8. At the end of this line add " | NOSENDOPC " (the first character is a blank space), so the line then reads: DRVGENERALFLAGS = MODESEL_NOPAGE01 | MODESEL_NOPAGE05 | NOSENDOPC
  9. At the top of the Notepad window, click File , Save .
  10. At the top of the Notepad window, click File , Exit to close the window.
  11. At the top of the CD Configuration window, click File , Close to close the window
  12. Restart the computer.

Dell cd-rw drive doesn't recognize when a disk is in it


You need to make sure your drive can read CD-RW. That is a different format than "+" and is not recognized in a lot of drives. Also, what software are you using to burn the document?

DVD-RW IBM A31 Thinkpad problem


I take it you are trying to "send to" files to the DVD-RW?You can't burn a DVD just with windows XP . It only supports CDRW drives.

Get commercial software like Roxio or Nero, or download a free CD burning program like this one:
