Cannot burn audio cd from itunes7 error code 4450

I have a HP Pabilion a350N with a HP300N dvd cd writer combo and samsung cd-rom. I have Windows XP SP2 and have been using itunes and Magic DVD Copier, Record Now, Musicmatch, emusic all fine for months until I upgraded itunes to 7 and now I cannot burn a disc from itunes, It says it is burning and after 1-2 minutes it says it is canceling burn and the message box says itunes unknown error ocurred burning disc code 4450. I have been all over Apple site and no one there seems to have an answer, I even went back to an older versin of itunes 6.0.5 and still the same, I updated my firmware, no change.

    I am having the exact same problem on my dell

    I was experiencing the exact same symptoms with my HP Pavilion 775 and DVD Writer 300n on XP SP2. The problem started when I upgraded from iTunes 6 to iTunes 7. Of course, Apple doesn't have squat about the 4450 error. Try lowering your burn speed to 12x or 10x. That seemed to work for me.

    I have the same Problem. I have a Gateway Laptop that was just returned from having the cd/dvd burner replaced. Since it was returned I have been having the same problem. I also checked all the settings for the cd burner, I tried different cd's repaired iTunes, as well as trying to use Nero, and none of the attempts worked. I'm returning mine to the place that rpaired my Laptop

My Samsung combo drive does not read or write CD but it plays DVD. It does not have DVD writer only CD writer is there.

It is likely that the laser diode for CD reading and writing has burned out. DVDs use a different laser diode. If this functionality is important to you, replacement is the only option.

What problem are you having? What error-messages?

If you are using Windows NT or 2000 or XP or Vista or Windows 7, the device-driver for CD-ROM, CD-writer, and DVD-reader/writers is _included_ in the Operating System.

If you need software to help you create/burn CD/DVD/Blu-Ray disks, see: and search for "AShampoo Burning 6" -- this is _free_ software.

Which operating system of Windows are you using to burn them?

If you are using Windows XP you will need a program such as Nero to burn them. The send to DVD doesn't work in XP. It will only work on Cds. One should have came with the DVD.

This is because the model you mentioned is just a combo drive. It is not a dvd burner. You can watch dvd's with it but not burn them. The way manufacturers word the advertising leads some people to believe that they have a dvd and cd burner. All you have is a cd burner / dvd player. What you want is a dvd-rw / cd-rw drive. Sorry! I hope this helps.
