  • Hi djcroteau,

     

    Windows Media Player cannot burn the selected files to the CD. To fix the problem, do one or more of the following, and then try again:

    • Verify that the CD burner is connected properly.

    • Clean the disc and verify that it is not damaged.

    • Try a different brand of blank discs.

    • If another program is currently burning files to the CD, wait until the burning process is complete.

    • Quit other programs that might be using the CD burner.

    • Restart Windows Media Player.

    • Restart your computer.

    • Select a slower recording (write) speed for the CD burner.

    • Use the Windows Error-checking tool to check for file system errors and bad sectors on your hard disk. For more information about the Error-checking tool, see Windows Help and Support.

  • Please check any third party programs do not interfere with the CD Burner.
