Disk burning with I-tunes . Help !

27 posts in this topic

first let me say anything computer related is a bit of a nightmare for me. I used to be able to burn disks from I-Tunes with no problem. now every time I try to burn a disc it gets two or three tracks in and then fails with the error message 4450 which means nothing to me. if I un-install and then re-install I-Tunes would I lose all my music library. has anyone come across this issue I would really appreciate some tips. similar scenario with windows media player, will not complete a disc burn.

Is it the same batch of blank discs this happens on?  You could have  a bad batch . I had this with a set I bought but they worked fine on my friends pc

Do the discs work with any other burning program?

you shouldn't lose your music as it is stored on your PC in your itunes / music folder.

what operating system are you using?

google the error and there is plenty on the net about it and how to fix it

Are you burning the tracks as a playlist?  From a playlist I mean?

I take it you use a windows operating system?

Have you tried googling the error message and following the instructions to uninstall and reinstall iTunes although if it doesn't work on windows media player then iTunes isn't the fault.  It could be the actual cd burner? Could be software.

Firstly try turning down the burn speed. I used to have problems with a previous PC in that the memory buffer could not keep up with the speed that the disk was asking for the data; also turn everything else off, and don't multi task. Close all your other windows down. I have also seen reports of some printers clashing, so disconnect them if possible.

There are a few free disc burning programs out there, which I won't attempt to recommend; although I used to get very good results with Nero - I had the program on a disc that came with another PC. This also gave the option of burning the song details into the CD and on SOME car CD players the track and artist flashed up on the display when it was playing.

Check the default settings for Itunes. Control Panel/ Programs/ Default Programs/ Set your default. Click on Itunes and Choose defaults for this program.

Might be that the playlist is too large for the capacity of the CD you're trying to burn to? You could maybe try taking a few tracks off the playlist and then try reburning the shorter list? Just a thought? Might be worth a go, if you haven't already. I'd have had a full blown technotantrum by now.

Itunes usually tells you there is not enough space

the cd burner is probably fc*ked given that it doesn't work with any program and different discs

cheers for that Chalky and Brummie , didn't realise you could get one for so little money , hope theres one that's idiot proof. but judging by the other c.d burning thread ive just spotted on here it is a bit of a minefield, so many annoying little traits , discs not finalising ect

This happened to me with an HP laptop.

It's my experience that both Windows updates and i-Tunes are always cocking up various programs.

Earlier this year Microsoft had to come on line twice to fix a install problem relating to Windows 10 and i-Tunes

on my laptop.

This is a free service that they offer relating to Windows 10, though I understand peoples reticence  to allow them

access to their laptop. Eventually Microsoft re-installed i-tunes for me , only to find that Windows 10 still won't

allow it to up-date to the latest version .

This last week a Windows up-date disabled my wife's laptops ability to connect to the internet.

Going on line I found that there are 10's of thousands with the same problem.

Eventually I managed to find the right fix for that on You-tube.

The same laptop hasn't been able to burn or read discs since upgrading to Windows 10.

It was until months later that I found this out, because she rarely uses it.
