Cannot Burn A Cd From Library


I have windows 7 and when i try to burn audio from my library it starts to burner and then i get an error message saying that my burner is not connected or something to that effect. I have tried slowing down the burn speed but to no avail. I am using a sony cd-r disc and the music that i trying to burn is not protected. When i go into the fix mode it says that the disc is not recognized but that it has been fixed.

I have checked to see that i have the latest drivers and i have. I was actually able to burn the three audio selections that came with the computer. The only other music i currently have is a classical album that i bought and downloaded from amazon and, that is the one i can't burn to a cd.

Error When Trying To Burn Cd - Windows Media Player Cannot Burn Files

Windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I just burned a cd with absolutely no problems at all. Using the same type of cd, brand new, i attempted to burn another cd and got this error message: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish.

If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I've shut down all programs running, restarted my computer, changed the burn speed under the devices tab, everything i knew to do and all the things i've read through these forums, no such luck, still getting the exact same message. Any clue why my cd burner has decided to just stop working for me?

How To Burn Files To Cd/dvd?

How do i burn files to cd/dvd? I've spent the past hour trying to burn files to my cd/dvd. Even after i erase the disc and tell windows 7 what files to burn it tells me the files already exist on the destination disc or there isn't enough disc space on the destination even after i erase the darn thing.

Then when i finally get it start burning and even during what i perceive as the burning process that balloon keeps popping up telling me i have files ready to burn even though they were burned (at least that was the case the last time) i'm attempting to burn the same updated files that i burned a week ago. Apparently erasing the disc does no good. Am i missing something or is there an easy way to do this? Maybe some third party software would make things a bit easier.

Not Able To Burn Files To Dvd

Problems burning dvds i'm new to windows 7. I have read the instructions for wmp 12 and i cannot burn dvds. I had no problem in vista but this is a trial just getting the files into the player. Drop and drag doesn't work. I finally got the avi files into it but on one dvd player i have a pic and no sound and on the other sound and no pic. I used a dvd-wr, which didn't work at all and a dvd -r, which gave me the results i just stated. At one point, i got a list up of settings but i can't find it again. Both dvd players support divx. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Media Player Cd Burn Error

It starts burning and then stops when it gets to 99%. This error message pops up on the screen: windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary, verify that the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device driver. I'm using a laptop with windows 7 that already has a burner inside. Also, when i play the cd in a cd player it seems to work fine. So i'm wondering why it's displaying that message.

Unable To Burn Audio Cds

Unable to burn audio since loading win 7 but can burn dvd'si have 2 lite-on dh-20a4p combo's which will not burn audio cd's with a number of different burning programs tried in windows 7 ultimate. The funny thing is they both worked to their full capacity in vista ultimate burning both dvd's and cd's with no problems. With different types of media i'll get to the final stage of burning and the programs either won't give me the green light or they just hang. I am thinking that this is an issue with the driver in windows 7 and that perhaps there may be a way to load the vista driver.

When i use wmp 12 to burn i get the following message no matter what media i use.
"Windows media player could not complete burning because the disc is not compatible with your drive. Try inserting a different kind of recordable media or use a disc that supports a write speed that is compatible with your drive. "

The disc has by then ejected. I have tried removing upper and lower filters in the registry to no avail. I can't remember if it worked whilst trialling windows 7 rc1. My hardware is as follows:

Operating system: ms windows 7 ultimate 32-bit
Cpu: intel pentium d 805
Smithfield 90nm technology
Ram: 2. 0gb dual-channel ddr2 @ 267mhz 4-4-4-11
Motherboard: gigabyte technology co. , Ltd. 8vt880p combo (socket 775)
Graphics: generic pnp monitor @ 1680x1050
256mb geforce 7300 gs (undefined) 48 °c
Hard drives: 195. 36gb seagate st320082 scsi disk device (scsi)
Optical drives: atapi dvd a dh20a4p ata device
Atapi dvd a dh20a4p ata device

Audio: realtek ac'97 audio for via (r) audio controlleri've tried many different things, eg: rolling back firmware, attempting to uninstall wmp 12 and replace with wmp 11 but i'm stumped. Worked perfectly with xp then vista unless something in the registry has changed in win 7. All diagnostics say both rom's are fine. What do you guy's reckon?  Ideas:programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem

Stalled Backup Burn Onto Disc

Yesterday, i tried to burn my weekly back-up disc. It stalled , so i canceled it. Today i tried again, was told to put in the old disc. I did and it stalled again when it came time to take out the first disc. I had to shut down and use the paper clip. I tried again with a new disc (the other one had finished). The process got to 63% and hung there for more than 1/2 hour. It never told me to insert another disc, although, after 2 hours or so it must be done. I will have to paper clip it again to get the disc out. I'm assuming i'm 2/3rds done with my back-up (i have a lot of photos).
Why does the program not say anything when it's hung up?

Windows Media Player Cannot Burn The Files

Windows media player cannot burn the files. If the burner is busy, wait for the current task to finish. If necessary verify the burner is connected properly and that you have installed the last device driver.

If you guys tell me check and make sure the cd burner is connected;been there done that.
If you guy tell me to uninstall the device and reinstall;been there done that
If you guys tell me to try brand new disks;been there done that as well.
I have lowered the burn speed ect.

I have done everything possible. I can burn a disk one time or a few then next disk i get that error. I have yet to burn the system restore disk and i am afraid to for fear of getting that error. I am thinking of getting external burner since no one things its a good idea test things out before putting them out.

Dvd Maker Problem During The Burn Process

I have a sony dvd camcorder (mini disc)and sony vegas movie studio 6 software. Since getting a new laptop with windows 7 i've been having problems with vegas movie studio (i think it may not be fully compatible with windows 7). But it does manage to render my videos to a recognizable format (mpg) so i turned to windows dvd maker, which looks like a great and simple program to use initially. But like many messages on this forum i too had a problem during the burn process - mine only gets to approx. 4% and then comes up with an error message (but the error message displays no detail). What can i do? Is there an alternative? Can i burn a mini disc onto a dvd-r for example? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

When trying to burn a cd wmp goes through the motions but only burns a some of the music and not others then ejects the cd with the message above. Some songs on the burn list have audio codec info some do not. I believe this makes a difference but am not sure.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.

Error With A Call To A C++ Library

I am having trouble identifying the 'program' at boot (after bios boot is ok) that makes an error with a call to a c+ library. Restore was not enough to fix. Any ideas? Is there a way to go through windows 7 startup step-by-step to see when/how the failure occurs? I did a restore but that was not effective. I may have a system image but i am reluctant to go that far back.

2) regarding the system image. Is that able to be incrementally backed up? The first one took about 18 hours.

- There are no obvious symptoms after login but i would like to identify the cause of the error and fix. - New computer running 64 bit win 7. - Issue started after transferring programs from older vista 32 bit computer.

Media Player 12 Library Help

I am not able to delete any of the sample music that came pre installed on windows 7. I deleted the files from the my music folder/my videos but i cant delete them from windows media player 12 or windows media center. I would like to know how to do this. When i hit delete on them nothing happens same thing if i drag them to the trash. That's not close to the big problem though. I am not able to add any music to the library without it all getting deleted once i close wmp 12. How can i get around this?

It is a brand new computer i just bought it. It came installed with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. It has no virus or anything like that wrong with it.microsoft sure did mess up with wmp 12, wmp 11 was great but they font have it for windows 7 that im aware of. I also tried to re-download wmp 12 but i couldn't find the link to download it. They kept trying to make me download a plug in for it instead of the player itself. Since there's such little problems with this operating system like this im already regretting not going with a mac.

Visual C++ Runtime Library

I have just upgraded my toshiba satellite l300 laptop from vista to windows 7, everything went fine with the upgrade except for when the computer is starting up. The whole boot process is fine until it comes to go to the sign in screen i get this message:

"Microsoft visual c+ runtime library
This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way
Please contact the applications support team for more information. "

To overcome the problem and be able to sign in i have to keep hitting the esc key over and over again until the sign in screen does eventually appear. When i sign in everything appears to work ok but i only upgraded the system yesterday and am worried that this will eventually become a bigger problem than it is right now.

Problem With Library Files

Win7 is driving me crazy. The new "library" feature sounds like a good idea, but it is not working for me. I have taken a number of pictures from my hard drive, and burned them to cds, deleting them from my hard drive. However, these pictures continue to be listed in the library even though they no longer exist on the computer. When i click on these "pictures" in the library list in media player, nothing happens, and the thumbnails are generic logos, not a thumbnail of the actual picture. However, win7 will not allow me to delete these not-existent pictures from the library list. Any ideas?

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

I just recently installed roller coaster tycoon 3 platinum! Edition in my window's vista computer. This game has always worked on my other computers, but right after installation i tried to start the program and this popped up:

Microsoft visual c+ runtime library
Runtime error!

Program: . Filesatarirollercoaster tycoon 3 platinumrct3plus.exe

Abnormal program termination

I looked at a lot of the other solutions for similar issues on these forums but none really seemed to apply. This computer was built for gaming, and plays games such as command and conquer and world of warcraft with no issues. I did, however, try to uninstall the microsoft visual c+, but there were two of them in the computer, and a third one called microsoft visual c+ updates. I uninstalled the two, but left the updates one. I reinstalled the program and restarted my computer. Same issue.

Can I Filter A Library By File Type?

I create some various types of content like newsletters, videos, website work, and i store all the files from each project together, sorted into folders by client and then project name. So you can see that while my pictures library may be a great way to organze my personal photos, i don't put any image files associated with a project into my pictures folder, right?

Well i don't really have personal pictures on this machine, so it would still be nice to just see all my picture files from all projects. I figured i might add my 'projects' folder to be one of the folders that gets aggregated into the pictures library. But when i do, everything from my projects shows up in the pictures library. How can i set the pictures 'virtual folder' to only show files of an image type, like only png, svg, gif, jpg, and stuff like that?

I seem to remember that libraries are based on "longhorn's" search folders, so how do i make it happen?

Visual C++ Runtime Library Error

Just recently, when i start my desktop pc, running windows 7, (which i installed three months ago, ) i receive many runtime errors. I also get an error for gadgets (settings.ini is being used. ) The runtime error! Lists the program as program: c:prog. Because the program title gets cut-off, i don't know which program is giving this error!  Some of the programs not running correctly are: adobe ("internal error") ms word, and even windows support seems to run in safe mode.system restore does not complete successfully and gives error code 0x80070005.

Dvds Not Showing Up In Dvd Library

I just got my notebook back from hp and they decided it would be a good idea to format the hard drive. Luckily, i had my dvd's backed up on my external hard drive so i didn't have to re-rip them. Anyway, before, i was running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit and when i told it what folder my dvd's were in, it found them and automatically added them to the library - i don't recall having to to do anything special.

Now, i've reinstalled windows 7 ultimate 64, so my os hasn't changed, but when i re-added the folders and tried to view them in the library (by clicking on movies), i get a message that says :there are no items in this library yet - windows media center is searching for media files in the background. To add more movies, you can go to tasks > settings > media libraries.

It does detect 2 home videos that i have in mpeg format, but the other ones that i kept in the normal format with video_ts folders within are not detected. Is there something i need to change so that wmc will recognize my movie collection again? I can get the movies to load and play using the "my movies" plug-in for wmc, but i'd much prefer to use the native movie library in wmc.

Adding A Network Drive To Library In Win7

Adding a network drive to the library in win7, or adding media to the library from a nas. I have a nas drive (linkstation) that has all my docs, movies, pics on etc.

I used to change the location in vista of the default movies, pics and docs folders so if anyone wanted quick access from within win-explorer to these files they could click the locations under the usher profile. In win7 we now have libraries, i want to add my files to the libraries so users have access to docs etc quickly without having to navigate to the docs etc.

However if i try and add a folder to the library it tells me its not indexed and then if i try and add it to the index i don't have the network drives as an option. Is there a way in win7 to add remote repositories of data to the libraries?

Microsoft Library Component Has Stopped Working

I have found a thread with the same title in the windows vista forum, but i don't know if it is the same and it the issue does not happen exactly the same way. For me it can happen any time even if very seldom. It happens every time the computer comes back from sleep, from hibernation or at start up

At startup i have only what cannot be controlled, winpatrol and the anti-virus. The 12 remaining startup programs are delayed by winpatrol and scaled for up to 15min. It is obvious that something triggers the issue when the computer wakes up but not sure if it is a starting application.

Media Center Library Updating Issue

I am having repeated difficulty maintaining my media library with wmc. I am running win7 professional - 64 bit on a ibm intellistation 6223, dual 3. 6ghz xeon w/ 5gb memory. I have parred down my entire media library to one directory of ~20 pictures in an attempt to isolate the issue to no avail. Media player sees the pictures just fine: media center sees the picture directory, but claims it is empty.

I have already:

1. Rebuilt the database by following the directions give in another post by savan h, provided here:

Follow these steps:

A. Click start, type%systemdrive%programdatamicrosoftehome in the start search box and hit enter.

B. Right-click themediacenterdatastore. Dbfile and delete.

C. Restart windows media center.

(Note: i did not find the filemediacenterdatastore. Db, but did find and delete the . Db file called mcepg2-0. Db, but to no avail. )

2. I have uninstalled and re-installed wmc.

3. I have run system file checker (sfc) and no errors were found.

Why can't wmc see and display picture files that wmp has no problem with?

Media Player Not Showing Video In Library

I'm running 64bit win 7. The media player shows video in skins and now playing modes, but when switched to library mode or when initiated in library mode the video seems to play but doesn't display. How might this be corrected? Also, i'd really like the enhancement for video controls always displayed (as i've had in earlier m-player versions). How can i set this ?
