Well, go search on how to get Media Player to burn other formats you're interested in, or download another free burner program (see VersionTracker.com to search, for example) which is amenable to burning .FLAC or .ape or such.

Don't go crazy running the iPod revolution backwards creating vast CD libraries out of a svelte 40GB audio player full of music....

Cannot burn cd from Musicmatch from Dell Optiplex GX260. Error.


Hello,

My name is ArmyMason, I am here to help you. So you have an issue burning music to CD's. What is the format of the music? MP3, WMA, or WAV? Is the music protected by copyright in which doesn't allow you to burn it to CD? Right click on the song and click properties you will be able to see if its copyright protected there. Also some burning software only works with newer CD drives. I had an issue once burning a DVD with this software I bought because the DVD player wasnt supported. Once I upgraded the DVD Burner I was able to burn DVD's. Those are the only things that could be stopping you from burning music.

Hope that helps,
ArmyMason

MY PC no longer "burns" cds-but there is no "error" message


My only suggestion is to borrow another burner if possible and see if you get the same error with with that one. This will be the simplest way to determine if you have a software problem or if your burner has a fault.

How do can you burn a music cd


First the best thing to do is put all your music from you CD's from to your computer, by using windows media player and clicking on RIP CD and press start RIP. Once you rip all files to Hard Drive use your burner program. I use Nero, but most burning programs using similar fuctionality. If you only want to copy entire CD instead, just go to burning program and select COPY CD. Follow on screen instruction.

Depending on your burner program you can burn audio CD's quite easily. I myself use Nero and can guide you through the process.
Depending on how you have your desktop setup, I click on me Nero Smart Start. If you don't, then see if you have it under program files and run it.

FOR FULL PROOF RECORDINGS USE NERO AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Once started move mouse pointer on to the audio symbol
  • Click on Audio CD or MP3 CD (Audio Cd for all stereo systems with Cd player and mp3 for only mp3 players. MP3 hold files of music in megabytes and Audio is in minutes and can only fit 89mins on disk)
  • Now a separate box opens up and click on add
  • Another window will open. Need to select My Documents on left hand side in blue writing (That's where Media player stores music)
  • Then double click on My Music Folder under the name category.
  • Then double click on any of the folders of music for example I might have a folder of Mariah Carey, Metalicca and so on and click again on another directory(separate directories if more the one cd if some band here). In each folder will be the music files or names
  • Onec chosen folder click on each individual song and press add, you can also preview each track if no name and only track number
  • You can also click the Green arrow in the right top hand corner to go back to previous folders and click on the ones require to select other songs from other folders.
  • Click on Finish, check if you need more music and add if so, if you have too many deltee them
  • Then click next
  • Make sure blank CD-R 80mins is in drive
  • Select the writing speed and set to 16 speed, as some CD-Players are older and can't read above 16x
  • You can select also How many copies if you like
  • Click on Burn and wait till complete, about 10mins to burn.
  • Once complete click on ok to successful burn and close down Nero. CD will spit out and play CD in a CD player
  • one perfect recording done!

Do you have to have "Secure Disc" installed before you can burn CD's? How do I transfer my music from windows media player to a disc using the external burner? Sorry, I'm computer challenged. ...


hi frankie;
you can use third party software to burn your songs into the disc or you can use the built in burner of Windows. What operating system are you using? some things you need to check before burning:

1. cd-rom capable of burning?
2. is it a cd rewritable or a dvd rewritable?
-you can use cd-r or cdrw on dvd rewritables but not dvd-r/dvdrw on cd rewritable.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. locate the songs you played on your media player in your computer,highlight it and right click one of the highlighted mp3 then select copy from the list
2. Insert the cd into your optical drive ( cdrom or dvd rom).
3. Open My computer and double click your optical drive icon.
4. Right click on the empty space inside that window and right click mouse then paste
5. There should be a link at the left side of the window that says "Write these files to CD"

***frankie; i would just like to remind you that the music burning im referring to is mp3 music, if you want to burn audio cd, you need 3rd party software for that.

Some cd players(discman, etc.) only play audio music format and not of mp3 format. Provide me details of what you want to do and i will help you. :)

Unable to write audio cd's on samsung laptop


When you burn the music have you changed the format of the file to .cda because .mp3 will not work on an ordinary cd player. One way to burn audio is through Windows Media Player. That will covert the file format so you can listen to it. Just tell me if this dosn't help.

All The Best,
RCF
