Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

EMac G4 stopped being able to burn music CDs in iTunes. I bought a CD Cleaner and then I was able to burn one CD. Could not burn anymore after that even though I re-ran the CD Cleaner a few times.

Cd burning error


If possible, use a second CD player/burner to burn a CD. If can't borrow one, either internal or external (USB), they are fairly cheap second hand. I suspect your CD player has become defective, maybe only in burn mode. Can you burn anything (eg, software) using this item ? ie is it only iTunes that's affected ?

With the hp dvd burner 1040r I have, I've burnt hundreds of cds on the same eMac I've had for quite awhile (I think it was made in like '02). One day, my burner just quit burning. It will read and play...


It is hard to believe it lasted this long, sometimes the write laser diode only lasts a couple of years before it dies. You might have to replace the drive.

Cannot burn audio cd with iTunes


Maybe iTunes don't want your burning their music. I'm not sure cuz I don't use Itunes, but if it works on others that sounds like it might be the problem.

Here I found the below on Apple's site.

Symptoms Find out what to do if you can't burn an audio CD using iTunes for Windows. Sometimes an audio disc may not burn as expected. Here are some things to check.
Resolution Update iTunes Download and install the latest version of iTunes for Windows.
Songs not authorized iTunes will stop burning a disc if one or more of the songs in a playlist were purchased from the iTunes Store but are not authorized to play on this computer. This message appears:
"Some of the files can not be burned to an audio CD. Do you still want to burn the remainder of this playlist? For more information on why some files can not be burned, click below".

There's more so click the link below and see why you can't burn your cd.

The dvd icon does not show up on my emac. it plays music but not dvds. The emac is hardly used since I bought it in 2004. Can you help?


It is possible that you only have a CD drive in the emac, particularly with it being an old model. You can check it out by going to the apple menu and down to about this mac and then click on the more info button and when the system profiler comes up click on disc burning and you will see what type of discs the disc drive plays. Hope this helps.

4280 failure when burning cds using itunes. Never had this problem until now. Compaq Presario SR1030.


Try burning with another software and see what the max burn rate is. If it is highter, then remove itunes and reinstall.
If it doesn't burn well either use a cd cleaner and try again. If still a low burn speed then you need a new cd burner.

I have an iBook G4 and for some reason, no matter what brand of blank CD I put in, it won't show on the desktop OR in a separate finder window. iTunes comes up... but I don't want to burn a music CD...I...


Hello there, both questions can actually be answered at the same time - at one point, it seems the autoplay menu that normally pops up when you pop a blank disc in has been told to do the "open iTunes" action every time. To change this, go to the Apple Menu -> System Preferences, CDs & DVDs (should be in the upper left corner of the window), and make sure that the "When you insert a blank CD" and "blank DVD" both say "Ask me what to do" next to them - if not, then change it so that they do. Now, it anytime you pop in a blank disc, it will ask you what to do, and you can tell it "open with Finder" when needed, or "open with iTunes" if you want to open it in there.
