    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.

I have an Acer Extensa 4620Z and I am trying to burn a cd from itunes and am having much difficulty doing so. When I click to burn, it begins to start for about 1 second and then stops with the message:...


The problem with iTunes is that it uses its own/modifies the disc drive driver. What you can try is uninstall iTunes and performing what is called the Upper/Lower Filter Fix. This involves hitting "Start" and then selecting "Run" from the start menu. If that isn't in the Start menu, you can hold the Windows Key and hit 'R'. When the Run dialog box opens, type "regedit" in the box and click "OK" or "Run". This will open the Registry Editor window. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Control, then Class. This should reveal a bunch of items with seemingly random characters in their name. Select the top most and arrow down until the item at the top in the right-side column says DVD/CD-ROM Drives. Below that, you should see two potential keys, LowerFilters and UpperFilters. Right-click on these and select Delete. Then, restart, and reinstall iTunes. It should correct the issue.

ERROR 2131 WHEN ON ITUNES


Hello,

According to the support page the firmware update fixes the iTunes
issue with “The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error
occurred (2131) when you tried to burn playlist to disc for blank CD-R
media. the region code error for DVD movie playback.
NOTE Please DO NOT USE THIS UPDATE FOR A TOSHIBA LAPTOP the computers
may have the same optical drive but the firmware updates may not be
identical and flashing with the wrong firmware may damage your drive”.
This isn’t just the Toshiba Equium A200 laptop getting an error of
2131, the other notebook’s manufacturers also established the source
of the problem and they have to provide a firmware update to download
and fix this problem. The best thing you can do is wait until Toshiba
provide a firmware update specifically for the TSST TS-L632H version
TO01 drive in your laptop.

Please let me know if you have any fuhrer questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes


I think that your cd burner is messed up. Try contacting Toshiba support, and asking them to troubleshoot it with you. This is the link for Toshiba support: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp

you need to update the firmware on your burner or invest in a newer model (might be easier, as some firmwares are insanely difficult to get a hold of)

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.

It can be possible the drive has gone bad.
You can try updating the firmware of the drive and in case still no go get the drive replaced.
Also, you can call Apple Support because they might be aware and may be they have a fix for the same.

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
