When I try to burn data files to a CD-R disc on my toshiba satellite M1115, it repeatedly tells me to insert a disc, when I have put a brand new disc in. I have used the drive to burn music discs &...


It sounds like you are trying to burn too much data onto the disk. If you want to test this theory, you can burn a small amount of data to a blank CD-R to see if it works. If it does then you do not have a hardware problem. This will be good news.
There are different sizes of CD-R media, 650MB, 700MB and larger sometimes. If you select 700MB and try to burn to a 650MB media disk, the drive will just spit out the blank disk so as not to ruin it for a future burn. Also, if you are going to make a multi-session disk (or you have accidentally selected multi session, then you will automatically waste 22 MB leaving you 650-22 /628 MB, or 700-22 or 668 MB of space to burn your data. Each additional session will also take up 22 MB of space.
There is also a chance that the media you are trying to burn to is not compatible. Some lower end brands do not use enough reflective material for some burners. You can test this theory by trying an alternate brand of media.

I'm trying to burn some songs in Windows Media Player, it's around 300 MBs of songs going to a 700 MB CD-R. Windows says I can only burn around 15-17 of the songs on one disc.I have no idea why it does...


Hey!

Windows Media Player would only allow you 15-17 songs because the type of disc that it will create would be a music CD.

If you want to put in a lot of songs on a CD, it should be a data CD not a music CD.

I suggest you use a burning software that will allow you to make a data CD.

Here's a link that will show you free burning softwares. Click here to get there.

Hope this helps! :D

I want to burn Windows Media Audio/Video file to a cd so i could play it to a cd player


put a blank cd in your drive and make a playlist in window media player and open the copy to cd dialog and copy your contents. You can also go for 'nero' for the same purpose which is more easy and better.

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)

Won't burn CD-r or DVD-R


Hi,
make sure that your program that is setup to record. i.e nero-img burn et,c. is set to look at the drive D:- Or E:- whichever letter your drive is assigned by the computer.
Also try using a different Blank-media. if any disk has failed a full write, without finalizing Or creating the Table Of Contents. It will read as Empty Or Blank. you can see This By looking carefully at the underside of the Disk, to see whether it has been burned by the laset. ( Towards The Centre ) if the Dye is darker on the inner-edge, then this is possible.
You can also try using a different Packet writing software, or re-install the program.
Hope this helps.

CD-R problem


If this is happening it's usually a sign that your drive is failing as it can no longer read the media type, but just double check, if you are using Nero that you havent got DVD highlighted in the start smart as the media to burn to.
