Welcome to Fixya.

Error 2131 is an error that is encountered with iTunes trying to burn a cd or dvd.

The Fix:

Update your drivers. I suggest downloading Device Doctor, a safe freeware that scans your machine and will look for the latest driver updates of the computer's devices.

1. Click Download.
2. Click Save.
3. Go to My Documents > Downloads Folder.
4. Click Device Doctor's .exe file. Installation will start.
5. After the installation, the application will scan for driver updates. Just click download.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to come back if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

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

CD BURNING


This sounds like a dirty CD Drive, you can purchase a CD Drive Cleaner from most electronic stores that sale blank CD's. Maxell and Memorex are good blank CD brands. In addition make sure you are storing the CD's in a dry, dust free area, also make sure after using the CD Cleaner that there isn't any dust or debri. Keeping the drive free and clear of dirty will help with performance, if this does not help the last resort would be to replace the CD drive.

I get an error 4280 when I attempt to burn an audio cd


Apparently a common error; if you google error 4280 you'll get several different versions of what is happening. Some blame the Sony CD's other blame Dell, HP, etc...like I said there is a long list so I didn't want to pick out just one, it depends on your Computer type, combined with the CDs..so go ahead and take a look. Personally from reading some of the fixes I came up with; don't use Sony disc and run at 16x to get rid of the error. Hope this helps..

Please rate this solution.

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.

Unknown Error 2131 appears when I try to burn a cd from my itunes account on my dell inspiron 6400. Any ideas, have surfed the net a bit on this one but couldn't find any concrete solution. Thanks.


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.

NEW PC. CANNOT BURN TO CD.HELP


What kind of PC is it? Dell has an updated driver download @
http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R173097&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=235346

IF you do not have the dell I would not recomend this download. However, My guess is It is probably a driver issue Try updating your drivers. Who did you buy the PC from? They should have support for you. Check with your PC's support persons to rectify.
