CD Burning - Some Playlists aren't burning

Q: CD Burning - Some Playlists aren't burning

Have been burning CDs through Windows Media Player forever; no problems. Suddenly, when I choose 'Burn CD', nothing happens. No error messages.

BUT, when I choose a previous playlist to burn, it works. The non-burn problem seems limited to only recently downloaded music playlists. These same playlists do play on my computer, so they're obviously recorded and working.

Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?

A:Nero Burning ROM crashing caused perpetual burning from DVD Drive

Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.
Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.
Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.

When I burn cd/dvds with Windows 7 built in burning software and windows media player all my burns are successful. When I try to use Nero, CD Burner XP or imgburn, it fails. My computer is plenty fast enough(2.8ghz, 4gb ddr2, 250gb sata hd) and I tried reinstalling windows 7 without nero or deamon tools and tested with CD Burner XP, it still failed. I am using Sony blank CD's and also tried a few other name brand. I am burning at the lowest speeds. I purchased a brand new dvd burner and the firmware is up to date. The error I am getting is "Could not write to Disc". It fails randomly anywhere from 3%-30%. Any ideas? Again, windows 7 native burning works fine but other software does not.

If you are converting to a format readable by a dvd player they burner will burn very slowly depending on the source file. Now does you cpu max out when burning?

Ok, i'm new to this CD Burning. I have Nero Express, and i'm having a little problem with it.

I've copied an Audio CD to a CD-R, and it plays fine, but there are still space on it, and i wanted to put a MP3 (it converts to CDA really nice also) together with the already burned tracks, but i can't. Everytime i put the same CD, i get the folloqing message:

"This midia cannot be recorded
Please Insert another midia."

(Sorry if it's not right, cuz i translated from portuguese)

Can i do what i want?? How??

Sorry if it is hard to understand, it is hard to explain.

A:Audio CD Burning with Nero Burning Rom

You cannot append any audio files to an disc that has been completed. Once a disc is completed it cannot access the remaining space. Especially with Nero Express. Once a disc is burned it is "closed (finalized)."

This is just a simple explanation.

I believe Roxio's Easy cd creator lets you add files to your disc as long as you don't "finalize" it. Until you finalize it you will not be able to listen to the music.

I used my 3rd CD Burner and I put my music files onto the CD-RW. Everytime I finish the disc is ejected and CD Writing Wizard comes on and says I have to finish writing the disc. I put the disc back in and it says it doesn't have enough free space when it does! I see the files inside the CD-RW and I can play it but I have to change them into Windows Media Files. I plays fine too! But when I put it in a BoomBox it keeps saying no disc! I have no idea what's going on!

Hi to all,
Here's a strange one, I've just re-formatted my hard drive and re-installed xp ( not the first time, I prefer this to restore ) anyway I've tried to burn three music disc's using new blank cd-r's. I go through all the motions ( using nero 5.5 ) I do my compilation as normal, hit burn and nero " burns " the disc. When I try and play the disk on my walkman I can skip through the track numbers but get no sound. When I check it out on my pc in my computer it says Free space 0 bytes, Total size 0 bytes. I am sure this is not a hardware problem so what else could it be ?

I've been recording sucessfully with the same set up and software in the past, any suggestions welcome and appreciated.

Hello, I have a HP CD-Writer Series 82000e plus and I have having trouble burning a cd.
I have had "Buffer underruns" which I understand somewhat. I don't know if it is caused by the writer or the disc is to fast.

The writer burns at 4x600 kbs, or 2x300 or 1x150 kbs. I am assuming that the 4x600 is the slower speed. I have noticed that when the cd starts to burn it gives a burn time of approx. 16 minutes, however when time gets within 4minutes left it fails.

I might mention that I am using nero smart start-with cdRomburn..

It was suggested that maybe the discs I am using are high speed discs. I don't know enough about that to figure this out. I am using memorex CD-R52x700mb's 80 mins.

I wonder if someone could give me some advice.


A:Burning CD's

The slowest speed is the 1 x 150.

What are the specifications of the PC that you are using to do the burning with?

The buffer under-run is where the PC cannot keep up with the data required.

Also you should never use the PC for any other task when burning.

Is this an external or internal CD drive? What WIndows version?

A:cd/dvd burning

Chances are , that when you burn your cds, you click on "Burn Disk", when you should set it up to "Burn Session". I've never tried this with a dvd, so I'm not sure if you can burn sessions on a dvd. I know you can burn a +R dvd, and not finalize it until later. Maybe that's how you do it on a dvd? I think this only works with +R media..............

A:dvd burning

512mb is enough. What type of files are you burning though? If it's just a straight burn of a file then it's pretty straight forward. If you're burning video and the burning process also involves encoding/converting the video to your desired format, then this has a greater affect on resources. One of the biggest drains actually. What burning software are you using and what type of disc are you making out of what type of file format?

Have you tried un-installing CD Creator, and re-installing?
Reformatting your HD erased everything? If so, it erased your CD-RW's drivers too.
Try un-installing your drive, through the Hardware Manager, then rebooting, and let the computer detect the drive, and re-install drivers for it. But first................ Win 98 SE will do this, right? I know XP will, but not positive about 98 SE. Better make sure first!

A:I am actually new to CD burning here.

PS2 won't play a CD with movies... The "jerking" is most likely your DVD player..
Or, it could be your burning the files to fast.. I would say 24X is is just fine..

I went through 5 DVD players until I found just the right one..
Some can play VCD or SVCD, few can play both well..
Right now PS2 can only play DVD, and even that is most likely going to be DVD-R.

Just google audio splitter and many results come up..
I used one called "cool MP3 splitter".. don't know if it's still around.

However, I do have a cd burner and I would like to get opinions regarding the before mentioned software. Is it worth it to get it? or just stay away and buy a new computer at some point? If it's something worth checking out, which software package should I be looking at? Thanks.

Ok, so you have the files that you want and you want to put them on a dvd to watch on your tv.

Simple question, simple answer

VSO Convertxtodvd

It's about ?20, so not free but not expensive and it does the job great. I've been using it for a couple of years, it's as basic or as advanced as you wanna make it.

If I have a drive like a DVD/CD+R does that mean that its not a dvd burner? can some 1 explain to me? and also.... When I go to put home videos on a disk from the Drive F in my computer, the windows "Write these files to disk" disappears when I put the cdr or dvdr in the drive and doesnt allow me to put these files on disk. could it be wrong file extension? or what?

A:CD/DVD Burning

I've never seen or heard of a "DVD/CD+R" drive. There are DVD/CD-RW drives, DVD+/-RW drives and DVD-ROM, and CD-ROM drives. There is no CD+R format. What are the exact symbols on the front of the drive?

Windows XP supports CD writing but not DVD writing. If you have a CD burner and you put a blank CD-R or CD-RW disk in, you should be able to write to it without any other utilities (assuming the system has a CD burner). If you want to burn to a DVD, you need a separate utility.

A:DVD Burning

Not familiar enough with that version of Nero, to tell you EXACTLY where it is, but somewhere in there, before you click the "Burn" button, there should be a place to set your burn speed. If you can set it to 8X or Maximum, it will burn at 8X, IF your burner is capable of burning at 8X.

If your burner is a couple years old, it MAY not be capable of it. Look around in Nero's preferences. In my version of Nero,, under the boxes that shows the Source Drive and Destination Drive, is a drop down list of speeds to choose from. Your's may be similar.
Good luck!

1. The dvd file structure (IFO's, BUP's, VOB's) has to conform to the dvd video standard. (Check this by playing the dvd folder in your software dvd player eg. Power DVD or whatever you have)
2. What burning software are you using? Most will have some kind of some kind of template for DVD Video.
3. If it doesn't you should be sure to use the UDF file system (as opposed to ISO9660 or CDFS) and all the IFO's, BUP's and VOB's must be in a folder called VIDEO_TS. All the filenames must be upper case.

Are you using a DVD/CD-RW disc or an -+R disc? RW's are harder to work with. What is the manufacturer of the blank you are burning? Only use name brand blanks and not generics. (eg) Sony, Verbatim, TDK etc.
Only burn at the slowest possible speed for the medium.
If you are having problems with the built in Windows burner, download and use IMGBurn in my signature. And choose to burn Image to Disc.
