Burn cds


Hi first thing go to

start
control panel
printers and other hardware
system (on left side)
hardware
device manager
DVD / CD rom drives


does it show up as a burner? DVD-RW or CD-RW
if not it may have a wrong driver installed If windows does not recognize it as a burner it will never work untill you get past the driver issue.

If the correct driver is installed
should be pretty simple there are many ways to burn
right click on a file and select SEND TO and send it to your burner usually drive D add all your files then select BURN FILES

or if they are media files you can use Windows Media Player

if all else fails track down a copy of Nero burning rom software or Roxio easy media creator.

Finally having said all that are you using the correct media?
if you try to burn files using a DVD on a non DVD burner it won't work.

also older burners were finicky and you had to watch your + and -'s

meaning if a DVD-R isn't working then try a DVD+R

if its an older burner you may consider upgrading it, a DVD burner can be bought on ebay or newegg for about $50 and its only a 2 cable install so its not to hard.

Another more extreme solution is to save all your files which you should be keeping in the "my documents" folder and do a system restore. (requires the factory restore disks)

This is very time intensive and can be VERY tricky but if the computer has been running for 3 plus years and is running slow it could probably use a fresh start and anything that has been corrupted over the years gets wiped away.

Hope that helps

Burning CD-R


Windows Xp don't have its own CD burner. if you mean Roxio, that is 3 party CD burner.
try a different CD. some time the CD burner detect some smudge at the beginning area, then it tell you the CD is NG.
Try to clean the CD with CD cleaner and clean the CD also.

Some time I have to go through 2-3 CD in order to find one that will work.

When i try to burn some music onto my TDK cd the sonic record window appears everytime saying load a blank cd and ejects the TDK cd from the D drive. I have tried other TDK cd,s but the problem persists....


Sometimes there are firmware updates that update the compatibility of the burner with more brands and more formats. It could also be a bad batch of discs. Maybe try a different brand. Or do the CDs work in a different burner. Maybe the burner is bad or going bad. And just JFY, there are no CD+R only CD-R and RW

Cd/dvd burner too slow


It may just be that that is the speed of your drive.  See if it says on the drive how fast it is.  If it is too slow, then you may want to consider getting a newer, faster drive.

CD Burner Problems


If the source has a blemish so will the one you burn. Check the sample rate. The bigger the number the better the quality

Using my desktop to burn copy of cd some times skips on play back


try this:
when you are about to start the burning seccion. pay close attention to the speed you're using to burn your cd... try to lower it to the minimum, this should garanteed a better job (it may a bit take longer but you may save that in frustration).

also look for a kit the clean your cd burner... I think I've seen those at walmart here in canada.

I cannot burn a music CD from Napster. My blank CD is a CD-R. Do I need RW?


No you do not need RW. With the CD-R you can only burn to it once. With RW you can burn to it multiple times plus erase it.

Most cd burners work with CD+R and CD-R but it is best to be sure.

Be sure to try more than one of your CD-R discs. I've brought out a new cd burner on a warranty repair in the past and found that the customers cd burner was fine and when a different CD-R was tried they were able to burn onto a cd without a problem.

CD BURNER


Are you using a Rewritable CD? When they're new, they're really fast, and they slow down the more you use them.
