Hi mike,
Firstly, maintain your hard disk drives (all your partitions except the C drive by regularly) (once in 3 months) by defragmenting them. This enable uick access of your data to & from any storage medium. Secondly, don't be too hasty while burning CDs. If your HDD is of an older architeture then the transfer rate will be slower so then you downgrade your burn speed in the SPEED dialogue box. Se that you bring it down to atleast 16x or 18x. This sort of equalises up the lead in & out sync with your HDD. Never have more than one CD burning software installed on your PC. Conflicts tend to occur. Always partition your HDD into 10GB partitions (Example if you have a HDD of 160GB then you should partition it into 4 partitions of 40GB each) Don't install your games in C (system) drive. Keep each partition for a seperate use. Hope this solves your problem.

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.

Ways to burn Discs with Finder and Disk Utility in Mac (versions OS X 10.4 -...


Without purchasing new disc burning software, there are actually 3 ways to burn CDs & DVDs in your Mac OS X system (Mac OS X 10.3-10.6)

There are methods using Finder and Disk Utility.

Both are easy to do and when set up to use will have you burning music, video, data, and image files (ISO) to CDs or DVDs in no time at all.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BURNING DISKS WITH FINDER

1.) Create a Burn folder and burn a CD/DVD

* The easiest way to burn a disc with Finder is to create a Burn folder with Finder. Here's how you do that:

* Click on any blank space on your desktop and in an instant, Finder will appear on the Apple menu bar next to the Apple menu icon.
• Click on File and select from the drop down menu

9696d88.png

* This distinctive folder will now appear on your Desktop

597c898.png


* Now insert a blank CD or DVD and in moments, you will see this window pop up:

b3dbf79.png

• Just click the OK button.


* In a few more moments
on your desktop, you will see this Untitled DVD (or "CD: for CD-ROM Disks) icon:

10ec18d.png


• Now you can either drag and drop files into the folder, or just double-click the folder and also drag and drop files into the open Burn Folder window

* If you notice, each file you drag (or copy and paste) into the Burn Folder window will have a small curved arrow at the bottom left corner of the file.
That is merely a designation that the file is a image of the actual file and ready to be burned to the CD or DVD you use.

e3c6169.png

* Notice the Burn button (highlighted in the red box). This is the button you will press, to commence the burn (or copying) of the data you have placed in the burn folder to be copied to disk.

• Click the Burn button, name your disk and that is all it takes. When the process is complete, you will now see a formerly Untitled Disk icon on your desktop replaced with a "Your_new_disc_name" DVD.

(Additional Note: If you wish, you can also simply bypass creating a Burn folder, insert a blank CD or DVD and simply drag and drop or copy and paste files into the open window of the Untitled CD as well.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BURNING A DISC WITH DISK UTILITY

There are actually two ways to burn data to an DVD or CD with Disk Utility:

1.) Burn a disk in Disk Utility

* Simply open Disk Utility by either clicking anywhere on a blank space on your Desktop window and Finder will appear near your Apple menu, select Go >Utilities and that will take you to the Utilities Folder which is the default location of the Disk Utility application.

b90ce30.png


* Or you can click the Finder icon on your Dock, open a new Finder window, click on "Applications" listed in the side window and select the Utilities folder

a166fbd.png

d3fca75.png


* Either way, you will land here.

b417a9b.png


• Insert your CD or DVD.

9974e96.png


* Once you open Disk Utility, you will see this main window

a4997c2.png


* Now all you need to do is click the "Burn" button located on the Disk Utility toolbar.

3017d47.png


* For an example, I am striving to burn a copy of my Quicken .dmg file to CD.

* Once I have selected the file, then I click the Burn button located at the bottom right corner of the Finder window.

4773cc2.png

* Follow the onscreen instructions to start the burn process.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Creating a multi-session disk using Disk Utility:
Now it is known, that one cannot burn more than once with a single CD-R disc, but it can be done as provide from the knowledge base of Apple support:
  • In the Finder, create a folder for the session and drag the items you want to burn into the folder.
  • In Disk Utility, choose File > New > "Disk Image fromFolder." Then select the folder you created in the dialog and clickOpen.
  • Type a name for the image, choose a disk format, and click Save. Mac OS Extended allows burning the disc more than once. Formats such as ISO allow burning the disc only once.
  • When the disk image is complete, select it in the Disk Utility list and choose images > Burn or click Burn in the toolbar.
  • Insert a blank CD in the optical drive.
  • Select the "Leave disc appendable" checkbox. If you don't see this option, click the triangle in the top-right corner.
  • Click Burn.
What is really nice about this CD/DVD burn feature of DIsk Utility, is that now you can come back later and add more files to the same CD without having to waste all the space on a new CD-R.

This especially useful, if the image file you are need to burn is small in capacity. Just pop the previously burned CD in your drive and add that file or files until that CD is filled to capacity- that is all it takes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So there you have it, a quick tip on how to use Finder and Disk Utility to burn any data to your CD and DVDs.

Thanks for viewing my Mac OS X tip from FixYa Support. Stay tuned for more tips for how to make the most of your Mac OS X systems!

My cd/dvd drive will not burn cd/dvd's properly. it goes through the motions, but the discs come out as blank, i was able to burn cds at 2x speed, but that was it. any movie, or anything else will go...


ok..
what kind of application you use for burning??

try it again then double check if you really choose the right path of th drive you want to use as burner..

then you are sure that you burn the music as audio cd not data cd..as well as the video cd not data cd..

because if you burn data cd only computers can read that.. not your aplliances like for example your dvd player,cd,etc.

I am trying to burn a cd on my Acer Aspire 5536-5255 using WMP and it isn't working?


In Windows Media Player, click Library and then, in the List pane, click <List Name> List, and then click Burn List, as shown in the following screen shot.
  1. If you need to clear the list before beginning, click Burn List, and then click Clear List.
  2. Drag a folder from the Contents pane or songs from the Details pane to the List pane to create a list of songs to burn.
  3. In the burn list, drag songs up or down to arrange them in the order you want them to appear on the CD.
  4. Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW disc in the CD drive.
  5. In the List pane, verify that the songs you have selected to burn will all fit on the disc. If necessary, remove songs from the list by right-clicking a song and then clicking Remove from List, as shown in the following screen shot.

It is possible that a song will not fit even if the total time exactly matches the CD length, because the Player inserts two seconds between songs when burning. Click the Start Burn arrow and verify that Audio CD is selected, as shown in the following screen shot.
lick Start Burn.As the CD is burned, you can check its progress in the burn list. Burning a CD will take some time.Notes It is recommended that you do not try to perform any other actions while burning a CD. For example, playback may be affected if you try to play a music CD while burning a CD.

You cannot burn additional files to a CD after burning is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to burn files to the CD again.

I cant burn cds into my itunes library on my inspiron 1200


I assume that you really want to "read" the CD songs into iTunes (which is technically called "ripping" the CD. "Burning" is when you send information from the computer onto the CD, writing TO it.

When you place an audio CD into the drive, and then open iTunes, the audio drive should appear in an area on the left of the screen. If you select (highlight) this, there will be a button to "import music" which you can click.

How to record from a website to cd on laptop


To burn cd/dvd you have to check :

1. Your laptop cd/dvd drive have what capability:
- cd writer = only burn cd
- cd writer/dvd reader(combo) = still only burn cd
- dvd writer = can burn cd, dvd single layer(4GB)
- dvd DL writer = can burn cd and dvd single 4GB and dual layer 8GB.
Other than those, is not possible.

2. Must have burn apps named:
- Nero
- Alcohol 120%
- other. search internet.

If you have them then using the apps to burn, just read the manual.

Koam114 is in Korean. I don't understand :)
But If you want songs from website, you should download it first.
Unless the site is giving you a step by step how to burn songs directly to your cd/dvd.
Once downloaded, would be easier to burn to cd/dvd.
