Windows 7: I can't burn music to CD's

I can't burn music to CD's

This has been going on a long time. I have changed media players, I have 3 cd/dvd players to use and lots of different kinds of disks that say CD-R The process always looks like it is going fine. I see that it is burning and at the end it says it was successful, but the music is not on the disk. If I just open the disk to view the files it shows a list of the songs. Later I get that message that I have music waiting to be burned. I've tried using that....same results

Does the computer list the songs first and actually burn them later? I don't know why the list of songs shows up. I put the CD into my regular CD player on my stereo and there is nothing there.

I've tried copy and paste. Doesn't do it.

Do I need to format the disks in a special way? Sometimes when I put the blank CD into the CD player it will say that there is no disk or that I need to put a record-able disk in the player. I just don't get it,.

I have a recording studio and do a lot of audio CD burning. I use Nero BurningROM program for that but there are free CD burning programs such as CDBurnerXP that will do the job.

When you burn an Audio CD (NOT an MP3 CD) you need .wav audio files (some burning programs will convert MP3 to wav). Only use CD-R discs and burn at the slowest speed of the burner drive (16X on most SATA optical drives). However, even that may not be slow enough for older audio CD players (my burn speed standard is "8X" but I have some older PATA (IDE) drives that will burn at slower speed).

Try the CDBurnerXP and create an Audio CD.

One Caution, many downloads now include crapware that you don't want. Look at the download/install screens carefully and uncheck the garbage so you only get the actual program.

Thanks for the quick reply. This problem has been making me crazy. I have downloaded the software you suggested and when try it later today.

I wondered if maybe my burned CD's were only good on a computer. If I click on "play"the music plays, but I always wondered if it was coming from the disk or my music file. I'll let you know how it goes.

If they play on a computer, it could be they are MP3 CD's not regular audio CD's. If you inadvertently made MP3 CD's, Audio CD players have to be MP3 compatible type or they won't play them. Another issue is the burn speed, many older audio CD players will either not play the CD at all or will skip with audio CD's burned at high speeds. That is why I mentioned burning at the slowest speed of your burner (and as noted most SATA interface type burners (what is in almost all PC's in the last 5 or 6 years) slowest burn speed is 16X)

I just sat down for a minute and thought I would try to burn a disk. The program is only looking at the CD player inside my computer. That one doesn't work. I have an external cd player plugged into my computer, but I didn't see a place to point the program to it. So it is saying No disk.

I notice you marked this solved. I assume that means you got the Drive selection problem resolved and you are burning good audio CD's???
