Trying to burn music from iTunes onto a blank CD: the CD ejects and iTunes says "please insert blank CD". Have tried this with a couple of CD brands (verbatim, magmedia) but still the same result. iTunes trouble shoot didn't help much.

How to Play iTunes Music on Windows Media Player


There's a good chance when you buy music from the iTunes Store that the files that you download will be copy protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM system. It's a great system that protects the rights of the artist and publisher by making it difficult for the consumer to distribute copyrighted material. However, DRM can also be very restrictive by stopping you playing legally purchased music on your MP3 compatible hardware. So, what happens if you want to play your DRM'ed music on a non-iPod?

This tutorial will show you a way to produce DRM-free music that doesn't require any special software that you would normally need to buy. All you'll need is the iTunes software, and a blank CD (preferably a rewritable (CD-RW)).

Before we begin, check for any updates that are available for your iTunes installation, or download the latest version from the iTunes website。


Configuring iTunes to burn and rip an audio CD

CD Burner Settings: In order to set up the iTunes software to burn an audio CD, you first need to go into the settings menu and select the correct disc format. To do this, click on the Edit tab on the main menu and select Preferences from the menu list. On the preferences screen, select the Advanced tab, followed by the Burning tab. First, make sure your CD burner is selected from the drop-down menu alongside the CD Burner option. Next, Select audio CD as the disc format that is to be written by your CD drive.

CD Import Settings: While you are still in the preferences menu, click on the Importing tab to access the CD ripping settings. Verify that the On CD Insert option is set to Ask to Import CD. Next, set the Import Using option to a format of your choice; the MP3 Encoder is your best choice if you want to import audio CDs as MP3 files that play on virtually all compatible devices. Choose an encoding bitrate from the Setting option; 128Kbps is the normal setting that is good enough for the average listener. And finally, make sure the Automatically Retrieve CD Track Names From Internet and Create File Names With Track Numbers and both checked. Click the OK button to save your settings.

Making a custom playlist

To be able to burn your DRM copy protected songs to audio CD you will need to make a custom playlist (File > New Playlist). You can add music tracks to a playlist easily by dragging and dropping them from your music library to your newly created playlist. For instructions on how to achieve this, why not follow our tutorial on How to Create a Custom Playlist Using iTunes.

While creating a playlist, make sure that the total playing time (displayed at the bottom of the screen) doesn't exceed the capacity of the CD-R or CD-RW you are using; typically, the total playing time of a 700Mb CD is 80 minutes.


Burning an Audio CD Using a Playlist

Once you have created a playlist, simply left-click it (located under the playlists section in the left pane), and then click on the File tab on the main menu, followed by Burn Playlist to Disc. The CD drive tray should now automatically eject so you can insert a blank disc; ideally use a rewriteable disc ( CD-RW) so you can reuse it multiple times. Before iTunes starts burning the DRM protected songs, it will remind you that creating an audio CD is for your own personal use only; once you have read this notice, click on the Proceed button to start burning.

Ripping an audio CD

The final step in this tutorial is to import (rip) the songs that you burned onto audio CD, back to digital music files. We have already configured iTunes (step 1) to encode any audio CD that is inserted into the CD drive as MP3 files and so this stage of the process will be mostly automatic. To start ripping your audio CD, simply insert it into your CD drive and click the Yes button to start. For a more in-depth look at this process, read the tutorial on How to Import CD Tracks Using iTunes.

Once this stage is complete, all the files that have been imported into your music library will be free from DRM; you will be able to transfer them to any device that supports MP3 playback.

Note:The only downside in using this method is that if you have a lot of files that you need to convert, then it ends up a slow and tedious process. With this in mind, use a legal drm removal tool if you have a large quantity that you need to convert.

I am trying to burn a CD/DVD on my Dell XPS One. I can't figure out how to do this. Can someone explain to me step by step how to do this? Thank you in advance for your time.


After you insert a blank un-burned CD, you should get prompted by windows for 'how' you want to treat the CD: ignore that; if you open Windows Explorer (mouse-over the Start button and right-click, then choose Explore from the popup menu) then drag and drop the file(s) you want to copy onto the CDRW drive, then Windows enqueues the file(s) for writing. Right-click the CDRW drive icon and select the option to write/eject and it's done.

When i try to burn some music onto my TDK cd the sonic record window appears everytime saying load a blank cd and ejects the TDK cd from the D drive. I have tried other TDK cd,s but the problem persists....


Sometimes there are firmware updates that update the compatibility of the burner with more brands and more formats. It could also be a bad batch of discs. Maybe try a different brand. Or do the CDs work in a different burner. Maybe the burner is bad or going bad. And just JFY, there are no CD+R only CD-R and RW

Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE


You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.

I bought a Dell Inspiron 1525 and when I try and burn a cd it ejects it saying please insert a blank disc. Checking on my other computer the disc is blank and burns on that one fine.


It Sounds like the read lens on your CD/DVD Writer may be dirty or faulty giving a false reading.

Depending on whether your drive ejects in a manner allowing you to see the lens or if the lens stays internal there are a couple of differnt ways to clean it.

If it stays internal you need to get one of those cleaner CDs that will give you directions on how to use it.

If you can see the lens you can get by with a couple of (Qtips) cotton swabs and some Isopropl alcohol. dip one end in the alcohol and squeeze out any excess, open the drive so you can see the lens, disconnect the power source (safety first) wipe the lens in a circular motion, no need for alot of pressure just wipe. After you've covered the whole lens use the dry end to dry off the lens. Give it a minute or 2 to dry completely then reapply power and check to see if it works now.

If this fails try to see if it reads a disc you know has data on it. Verify that you are using media that is compatible with the drive. Some can use CD -R, or CD +R, or CD -RW or CD+RW

If still no luck you likely have a damaged drive that needs to be repaired or replaced

Hope this helpS
