    SO how do i fix it

  • Anonymous Jun 26, 2008

    I have the same problem on the Acer Extensa 7620 / TSS corp CD DVD W TS-L632H drive. Vista. regedit shows only the UpperFilters key present. Removing this causes iTunes (plus CD burner (NTI) to drop driver and drive shown in Control Panel as unabel to load due to reg. key failure. So after this no CD support on PC making re-install tough. As usual : Do not attempt to perform this (any) fix unless have proper back up / backout point established.



    NTI works ok. Can iTurns-burn to RW-cd (and the copy using NTI to CD-R).

    Cumbersom but possible.



    Have support request # 177-172056 in with Acer.

Hmm ok to translate what that guy said here is the potential solution (testing it out now)

Click Start, Run and type 'regedit'.

In Registry Editor expand to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class

Find and Select {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Optionally just search for the first part of that ({4D36E965-***}

Find and delete both registry keys UpperFilters and LowerFilters.

Exit registry Editor and restart your PC.
Reinstall iTunes so it can reinstall the required registry keys again.
Then try to burn again.

If this does not work the usual other solution is to uninstall and reinstall iTunes again.

It's Genius, unfortunately while It is attacking the source of the recording ability of the drive I am not that experinced with the registry, so when you say loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'), I am lost. I need to know how to do that step by step.

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

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes


I had the same promblem. What you should do is make a serperate file on you desktop and drag all of your music that you burn or download to that folder first. Drag it to Itunes after that. Now, you only have to drag the songs to Itunes if you want them on there for you iPod. Take the songs from the folder, and drag them to windows media players burn list. Insert a blank disc and you should be good. Keep in mind that you can only do this if you put downloaded or burned music to the created folder first. If you take it to Itunes first, you will have to re-download or re-burn your music again.
Hopefully this helped you guys.

Burning to cd


According to hp help and support
When using iTunes for Windows you may get a disc failed error. An unknown error occurred (4280)
In this situation, if you attempt to burn a disc, the following error message may display: The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error occurred (4280) You can resolve this error message by modifying a file in the iTunes CD Configuration folder. First, you need to verify the model of optical drive present. Verifying the Model of the CDRW/DVD Drive Verify that your PC has a Sony CD-RW/DVD CRX830E optical drive installed:
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. In the iTunes Help menu, click Run CD Diagnostics .
  3. Insert an audio CD in the optical drive.
  4. Click OK .
  5. View the results in the CD Diagnostics window:
    • If IDE/CdRomSONY_CDRW/DVD_CRX830E is listed, proceed with the procedure below to resolve the error message.
    • If another drive name is listed, this document does not apply to your computer.
Resolving the Error Message When an IDE/CdRomSONY_CDRW/DVD_CRX830E model optical drive is present, do the following steps to resolve the error message: CAUTION: Take care in using the following steps.
  1. Close iTunes and any other files and software that are open.
  2. Click Start , My Computer , Drive C: , Program Files , iTunes , and CD Configuration to view the files in the CD Configuration folder.
  3. Locate the file gcdrtype.cfg in the CD Configuration folder.
  4. Right-click the file gcdrtype.cfg .
  5. In the drop-down menu, click Open (you may need to select Notepad ) to edit the file gcdrtype.cfg in Notepad .
  6. In the Notepad window, scroll to the bottom lines of the file gcdrtype.cfg .
  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.
  11. At the top of the CD Configuration window, click File , Close to close the window
  12. Restart the computer.
You should now be able to burn an audio CD without displaying this error message. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------If this answers your question please rate this as fixed.
Thanks for using fixya support..You have a wonderful day
