CD Burning gets stuck

I have been trying to burn a cd and keep getting stopped in the middle of the 2nd or 3rd track. I am wasting too many cd's. Wondering if the drive is bad.

    Was burning a CD and it showed it was nearly finished downloading the writing and I kept waiting and after I realized the CD was not going to eject by itself, I tried cancelling the burn. But nothing happened. Cant stop the burn, the CD wont eject and I cant even cut off PC.

Try this: : Decreasing the burn speed If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)

  1. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  2. Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
  3. Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
  4. Click OK and close the My Computer window. Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6. If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
  1. Place a blank disc into the drive. NOTE: If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
  2. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  3. Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
  4. If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc. If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps. Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive CD Burning gets stuck - c00368150.gif
  5. Look for a Recording tab: If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
    2. Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
    3. Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
    4. Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
    5. With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane. Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW) c01367502.jpg
    6. Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs. NOTE: A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
    7. Click OK , and close Registry Editor.

How can I get track names on wave bose


When you make a cd if the names are not coming in when you add the tracks you can try a feature on most programs which is called get track names or something similar if this does not work you can type them in manually most burning programs have the ability to do this . I have all these features on my burning programs . You would have to import the tracks into a new play list and try what I said bottom line is at the least you should be able to add the track names manually then burn and they will show up on most radios or CD players . Hope this helped

Problems burning a cd with Sonic DigitalMedia Plus v7, I am on an HP notebook running XP


Try different software. I use CDBunerXP with no problems. It's free. Just don't install any extras (add-on programs) they include.

You should let it burn with no other activity during the process.

Try burning at a normal speed [longer process], if successful, erase the burned tracks from your harddrive.

or rearrange your tracks, starting with older recording dates, then
burn at high speed.

Writer will read but not burn


Can you remove the burning software and try to burn by dragging files using the built in windows xp imapi? Check the event viewer for any system events around the time when you are having problems. Also try following these instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060 If you have another pc you can try the burner with, you would be able to rule out software issues.

CD Burner stops in middle of burning


Hi KayGo, People hate going over the basics but gotta ask: -Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner? -Do you have any problems reading CDs? -What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi. -Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks? -What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect. -How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long. -Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know if you need any other assistance and don't forget to rate the posting.
