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 have an Acer Extensa 4620Z and I am trying to burn a cd from itunes and am having much difficulty doing so. When I click to burn, it begins to start for about 1 second and then stops with the message:...


The problem with iTunes is that it uses its own/modifies the disc drive driver. What you can try is uninstall iTunes and performing what is called the Upper/Lower Filter Fix. This involves hitting "Start" and then selecting "Run" from the start menu. If that isn't in the Start menu, you can hold the Windows Key and hit 'R'. When the Run dialog box opens, type "regedit" in the box and click "OK" or "Run". This will open the Registry Editor window. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Control, then Class. This should reveal a bunch of items with seemingly random characters in their name. Select the top most and arrow down until the item at the top in the right-side column says DVD/CD-ROM Drives. Below that, you should see two potential keys, LowerFilters and UpperFilters. Right-click on these and select Delete. Then, restart, and reinstall iTunes. It should correct the issue.

While trying to burn a cd i get error message 4450 ?


Try testing the CD first. There are reports that this error will occur but still produce a functional CD. Next try reducing the write speed, this will fix the problem in some cases. Next try burning with CD with a different program like Nero. iTunes appears to be a problematic application for this error. It is possible that the CD burner is near the end of it's life.

My cd burner was working two weeks earlier, but now it merely starts the burning process before delivering the following message: ''The attempt to burn a disc failed. Unknown error occurred (4000).'' How...


Is either the problem comes from your CD writer Lense that might be so weak to burn in which we call for a replace or probably your CD that you want to write on is bad . so you have to test another CD that is working fine on the writer first and if that persist you will only change the CD writer is weak for writing on CD

  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.
