Burn cds


Hi first thing go to

start
control panel
printers and other hardware
system (on left side)
hardware
device manager
DVD / CD rom drives


does it show up as a burner? DVD-RW or CD-RW
if not it may have a wrong driver installed If windows does not recognize it as a burner it will never work untill you get past the driver issue.

If the correct driver is installed
should be pretty simple there are many ways to burn
right click on a file and select SEND TO and send it to your burner usually drive D add all your files then select BURN FILES

or if they are media files you can use Windows Media Player

if all else fails track down a copy of Nero burning rom software or Roxio easy media creator.

Finally having said all that are you using the correct media?
if you try to burn files using a DVD on a non DVD burner it won't work.

also older burners were finicky and you had to watch your + and -'s

meaning if a DVD-R isn't working then try a DVD+R

if its an older burner you may consider upgrading it, a DVD burner can be bought on ebay or newegg for about $50 and its only a 2 cable install so its not to hard.

Another more extreme solution is to save all your files which you should be keeping in the "my documents" folder and do a system restore. (requires the factory restore disks)

This is very time intensive and can be VERY tricky but if the computer has been running for 3 plus years and is running slow it could probably use a fresh start and anything that has been corrupted over the years gets wiped away.

Hope that helps

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 get static on the CD in the background on a burned CD; what did I do wrong?


Four things come to mind.
  1. Low Bitrate- the higher the bitrate the better quality sound. If ripping mp3's I prefer 320kbps
  2. Burn speed too high- for good quality it's best not to burn at maximum speed. Although most CD burners will burn at 48X - 54X speed, select a slower speed (24X works well).
  3. Scratchy or poor media- it's possible that there's was a scratch on your CD or that you got a bad CD. Bargain CD's usually work pretty well but you will always get a few bad 1's in a spindle that end up being coasters.
  4. CD burner not properly grounded or plugs not secure. This is less likely unless it's an aftermarket device but still a possibility if you've done maintenance on your machine and pulled on a ribbon cable or power supply.
Hope this answers your question and solves your problem. Best of luck!

Dell Inspiron 530 CDRW/DVD problems


Are you a smoker? Its possible that a good bit of cigarette smoke buildup has accumulated on the CD burner's internal laser lens. One of those cheap CD cleaner disks might work to clean the laser lens, but usually one would have to open up the CD drive and carefully clean the lens using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol.

Cd burner wont burn whole cd. It burns 6 out of 18 songs and wont work in cd players. hp pavillion laptop dv2000


Some Cds (or individual songs) are Copyrighted, so they will not burn to new CD.
Make sure you're using CD. W. and not CD. R.W. as the latter will only play in your computer CD player. Where as the former will play in your car or home player.

Wont burn cds , files , etc


well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
