CD writing speed

I keep getting an "error message" on burning cds. The error message is saying "An error has occured while writing to the media. Enter in a new recordable CD and choose a lower writing speed" I am already writing at only 4x. Why is it not writing on the CD? The cd writing speed is up to 52x and up to 700 mb storage. I am only trying to store 300-400mb. HELP.

It's most likely NOT the CD..check the settings in your burner applications, where those sort of things are decided.

My head unit will not play burnt cds


I have a similar problem, When i try to play burnt cd's it would sometimes work and sometimes would skip or crackle as if it cannot read. I tried a standard bought cd and worked flawlessly so it cannot be the lens.

One thing i tried is when burning music to the disc turn the "write speed" right down to the slowest setting. If using Windows Media Player it is available by pressing Alt then navigating to the options menu. select burn -> write speed -> slowest. It doesnt go much slower but i think it writes less errors to the cd which makes it like a standard bought cd.

Hope this sheds some light on the situtation and good luck,

I can play cds in windows media player but i cannot burn to cd it comes up with error message C00D119F , how can i repair this


You need to be sure that your cd drive is also a cd burner. If it is then the problem might be fixed by any of the following: 1. Clean your disk that you are writing to or try a different one. 2. Use a cleaning CD to clean your drive. 3. Close any other programs that might be using your drive, song, or windows media player. 4. Restart Windows Media Player. 5. Restart your computer. 6. Try a different brand of cd to write to. 7. Choose a slower writing speed. Please rate my post if it was helpful! Best of luck to you.

Rcd159a boom box PLL digital radio- plays all the old mp3 cd's with a write speed 16x & under but any newly burnt one with the high speed disks fail


That's not unusual. Slower burning speed results in a deeper burn which is easier for some players to read. Unlike commercial discs which are highly reflective, burned CDs don't bounce as much light back to the laser in the pickup. Too fast a writing speed when burning can make some discs unreadable. This is why some older players can't read burned CDs at all; they were never sensitive enough to begin with. It's always a good idea to keep the write speed low (16x or so) when making CDs that will be played back in a regular CD player or boom box.

This problem is more likely to occur as the CD pickup ages and the laser weakens. If higher-speed burned discs used to play and now are having problems, it's probably time to replace the boombox (or the pickup assembly if you're ambitious). If the higher-speed discs never played, the player just can't deal with them and you'll need to keep the write speed down when burning CDs.

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but


This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Can no longer burn cds on MacBook Pro (Model A1226)


Get a cheapy drive cleaner/laser cleaner. Looks like a normal CD/DVD, but has a brush on one side. Should be able to pick it up from an electronics store/supermarket. Pop it in, watch it go, then try again afterwards. I've detailed this further in a blog posting at <a href="http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html">http://www.garysmith.org.uk/blog/index.php/blog/show/Matshita-DVD-R-UJ-857E-problems---dirty-laser.html</a> - there's a few comments on there about it, pretty much all of them saying that it's worked for them. I guess with it being a slot loader it's perhaps a little more open to getting dust inside. Hope that helps.

Thanks,

I keep getting cancelled CD burns off of iTunes and Windows Media


I had that error befor I was burning with Memorex's 52x CD-R... when I switched to a Maxell's CD-R, the error was gone! And I left the burn speed at 'maximum'. It did it in about 4minutes. Good luck!

Error message


It sounds like you might have problems with your CDs. If you are burning CDs on your computer to play in the CDJ, you need to remember that it will only play audio (wav), or MP3 files. Also, blank data CDs are cheaper that buying audio / music CDs. When you burn your CDs to play back on the CDJ, you have to be sure to burn them as wav or mp3. AAC, MP4, OGG and the other formats will not work in the player. When you burn the CD, ALWAYS burn at a slower speed than what the computer will automatically burn at. You will have to manually set the speed yourself.

Personally- when i burn my tracks CDs for my CD book, I use trusted name brand blank data CDs such as Memorex, Sony, TDK, Fuji, Imation. I burn them as AUDIO ONLY. To avoid any reading mistakes that could happen with any given CD player, i NEVER burn track CDs as mp3. When i burn the CD, i set the writing speed to 24x, 30x, or 32x. I recommend that you DO NOT burn your CDs at any speed faster than 32x. From my experience, that is the fastest and safest burning speed. If you do these things, and you still have problems with the E-83 02 code, then it will only have to be the kind of CDs your using to burn, or your CD burner in your computer. Notice how i didn't mention Maxell CDs up top. 3 months ago, i bought 2 spindles of Maxell data blanks on sale for $9.99 each. I was happy i got them that cheap, but the CDs themselves were no good. Recording everything the way i do, they had popping noises and scratching sounds through-out the disc. I gave the spindles to my neighbor. He was happy to get blank CDs free. I WILL NOT say that Maxell makes a bad product: I still record on cassettes and Maxells are one of my top 3 choices for blank chrome tapes. But the discs i bought were just a bad batch. Maxell is still a trusted name for blank tapes with us older DJs that started out with recording on tapes before the CD format became way cheaper and affordable.

Try burning your discs as audio only, and burn them at 24x, 30x, or 32x ONLY. Buy better brand name data CDs, and you should have no problems. If you use my method as an example, and you still have problems, then you need to get a new CD burner for your computer. They are always cheaper at Staples or Office Depot. Hope **** works out for you : D

Hi if the cd is bad and cannot read, you have to go for a new cd before doing that, try this cd in another system and try to copy files to  the hard disk. if it copies without error, then write it on a new cd with less write speed, for example 12x or 16x speed and use it on your machine
thanks
