Trouble Copying Music To Cd


I am trying to make a copy of some music onto a audio cd. I drag my selection to burn list, click on start burn and i get a message in a box saying "windows media player encountered a problem while burning the file to the disc. " Pressing the "web help" button brought me here. How can i find out what the problem is and how do i fix it. I have made several attempts to copy this music. Either nothing is on the cd or it just does not play on a cd player.

Explorer Stop When Copying Files

Windows explorer (and some parts of windows itself -_-) grinds to a stop when copying files from my computer's hard drive to an external hard drive. I am currently using windows 7 enterprise k (x86)

This is a problem i've been seeing from windows xp through windows 7. When i try to copy some files from my computer to my external hard drive windows explorer starts copying the file, then suddenly just stops.

I've seen a lot of programs crash on my computer, and i usually just press ctrl+shift+esc (sorry, i don't know what z‘—'¦¬z is called in english oss) and kill the process that crashed.

But when i try to kill explorer.exe:

1. It won't die. i.e. It's still in the process list, and i can still see the window that crashed
Even if i kill the mother explorer.exe (not just the one that shows me the window, the one that shows me the taskbar and desktop etc. ) The taskbar disappears, but when i start it up again the explorer.exe that crashed is still there.

2. It stays there forever. I've tried ignoring it all day long, and it's still there.

3. Windows becomes very buggy. After explorer.exe crashes, a lot more bugs that wern't there spring up, although i don't remember exactly what. I seem to remember that there were a lot more of those in windows xp than windows 7.

4. Windows doesn't even shutdown. I try pressing shutdown in the start-menu and it either takes forever to understand i wanted it to shutdown, or sometimes ignores me completely. I've also tried entering "shutdown /s" in cmd.exe and it does shutdown, only to get stuck on logging off.
Same with just pressing logging off, too.

And every time this happens, if i force-shutdown and try the same file again, it won't work that time either. Sometimes copying the file to the root of my external hard drive and moving it to the directory i originally wanted to copy it to works, but not always.

This is very, very irritating and i wish there was a way to fix it. I am also posting this question in the korean forum. Ps. I saw a answer to a similar question on the korean forum, and it told the questioner to update to vista sp1 or 2. I've been installing every update (except the optional ones) on my computer and i'm sure thats not the problem.

Explorer Crashes When Copying From Usb

I cannot copy files from a usb flash drive or my digital camera with windows explorer. I am running windows 7 professional. Both copy & paste and drag & drop cause explorer to crash. "Windows explorer has stopped working" is displayed and the details say:

It is very frustrating - i can't clean off my digital camera or even put them on a flash drive and drop them on my pc. Has anyone experienced this? Did i accidentally change a setting or registry value or something?

Copying Files To A Usb Drive Stops

I have a windows 7 (home premium 64 bit) laptop and two usb drives (one 16gb kingston data traveler and another 4 gb cruzer). I also have an xp laptop. On the xp laptop i can use both the usb drives to copy files of any size. Both are partitioned ntfs.

But on the win 7 laptop only the 4gb cruzer is working without a problem. Whenever i try to copy a file to this 16gb drive from the win 7 the copying starts of without a problem but stops somewhere in between. It does not proceed after wards. I tried a number of solutions including a hot fix suggested in this forum and still having the same problem. If i am copying a very small file (few mbs) it can finish copying without any problem.

Problem Copying A Large Folder To Dvd

I'm using a drag and copy of a large folder (~3gb) onto an external usb dvd. The folder contains sub-folders of miscellaneous data (photos etc). If i select and copy say the 10 sub folders (at once) then no problem. If these same folders live under a single higher folder then the copy gets half way through then everything stalls and i need to hard boot the computer. I have the following useful relevant updates installed kb975617 and kb976972 installed. Any suggestions? By the way. If you are experiencing painfully slow dvd file burning look at kb975617 (issue 3)

Issue Copying Files Between Hard Disks

I am experiencing issues copying files between hard drives on my computer. I've been having this problem on windows 7, and windows vista, but have never encountered it on xp. It seems there are several similar threads, but i think i've noticed a few quirks in my own experience. I have several drives, between 500 gb ~ 1 tb. Problems arise when i try to copy a folder with a large number of files (typically pictures, folders around 4gb in size).initially, the transfer rate would be at the hd's burst speed, somewhere between 90mb to 150mb.

Speed would decrease to around 30mb, or even lower. The transfer eventually becomes so slow that the operation would take hours to finish. If i try to cancel, it would take minutes to do so. The computer would perform sluggishly for a long period afterward, with intermittent lag until i reboot the system. This occurs regardless of the source and destination drives. On certain samsung drives, this problem actually lead to data corruption on both the source and destination drives, and i/o error messages. Chkdsk will run at startup, attempt to fix the problem, but the data would be lost or the drive unreadable. I've since tossed the samsung drives for wd, have not had i/o errors, but the file copying problem persists. I've also disabled chkdsk at startup for all drives. My hardware drivers and bios are up to date.computer is free of viruses and malware.

I have no other troubles with windows 7. Curiously, if i compress my folders/files to a single rar file, i do not have problems copying them (transfer rate stays steady at 30~50mb). This leads me to believe that this is not a hardware issue, but a problem with explorer, and that it pertains specifically with the number of files being transferred rather than size. (But unpacking those files also lead to poor performance sometimes. )Is this a known issue that will be fixed?  I really like win7, but because i work with large number of files and numerous backups all the time, stability during file copying is a must. I may have to revert to xp, or use another os entirely.

Copying Of Large Files To Portable Hdd

Sir i am facing this problem from many years and after a lot of search and efforts i am asking for your help to sort out the issue. Many times its happens that when we try to copy the large file like 8-10gb . Iso images to our portable usb hard disk during the process it gives error and hdd goes offline. What is the issue god know's.

I have tried disabling the "enable write caching on the disk" features and locate the following registry key: hkey_local_machinesystemcurrentcontrolsetcontrolsession managermemory management registy change. Still not got any particular solution. In windows xp it give error "wite delayed failed" but in windows 7 gives unable to find destination path. Please help me to sort out this issue. I am very much sure that this is not related to physical problem as after trying it 2-3 times the file easily gets copied.

Swap Hard Drives After Copying Win 7 To Another Hdd

I installed windows 7 on my 1st 1 tb hard disk. I partitioned it after wards and could not get the c partition smaller than 1/2 tb (because files are blocking it at that point) with the remainder 1/2 tb calling itself e, which i can not change to d? Is it possible to copy windows 7 on to my second 1 tb hard disk from the first (which i will partition beforehand to 50 gb and 950 gb, which i prefer) and then after that swapping the 2 hard disks internally?

File Error Copying Vob Files To Drive

I have been trying to copy a few . Vob files from a non-copyrighted dvd to my hard drive and keep running in to the same problem. After the transfer is complete, it looks like the full file is there but it shows that the clip length is only :13 seconds rather than the 35mins of the original file. Sure enough when i try to watch it, the clip appears corrupted, jumping around before ultimately freezing. Is this an error in the transfer, of the original dvd or something in 7 i just don't know about. I've only been using 7 for a few months and this is the first time i've tried to transfer vob files on this particular laptop.

Data Copying Fails, Usb Disks Keep Getting Restarted

We bought a new hp probook 4520s with windows 7 professional. From the very beginning we have been experiencing problems with usb devices. Our usb flash disks and an external westerndigital usb device (harddisk) often get restarted in windows 7, and errors reported on them, although all of them work properly on any windows xp system (computer) we try.copying to and from those disks often is interrupted and fails. An usb modem has not always functioned, either.

We reinstalled windows 7 - it did not help. The seller checked the hardware and found no problems. They say their usb devices work fine with this computer. In fact, sometimes it seems that our usb devices also work fine with it - however, this does not last long. Usb disks usually get restarted when data copying is just underway. Viruses, malware, etc, have been checked - nothing found. Autorun files turned into txt files - it has not helped, either.

Ripping Music Files

I am using windows 7 home premium, 64 bit. Is it possible to store the same file at different bit rates? Wmp seems to automatically replace previously ripped, identical tracks. I want to see what difference the rates make to audio quality on an mp3 player.

Also, i am thinking about transferring all my cds to my pc (or a portable hard drive). I would wish to do so at the maximum lossless quality.could i then sync tracks from the ripped files to an mp3 player at a lower bit rate (to maximize the space on it)?  Or, would i have to burn to cd and then rip at a lower quality if i wanted to do that (which, depending on the answer above, might mean losing the previously ripped lossless files to the low bit rate ones and having to re-rip the original cds, negating the point of the original storage).

If wmp does automatically replace previously ripped files, is there a work-around solution to enable me to 1) compare the same files at different bit rates and 2) store lossless files and sync from them at different bit rates without replacing them?

My Music Folder Missing

I have just installed windows 7 64 bit. After i completed the install and migrated my settings to the new computer from a vista install on my old pc, i tried to move the my music folder to a folder on a network drive. No idea what happened, but there is no longer a my music folder available - the one on the network drive doesn't have a location tab and i cannot locate it elsewhere.

In the library, nothing. Probably for an entirely separate reason it won't allow me to add the folder on the network drive to the library because it is not indexed.

I can see the reference to the my music folder in hkey_current_usersoftwaremicrosoftwindowscurrentversionexploreruser shell folders, and it looks just like the other default personal folders there but otherwise no trace of it. All other folders are ok.

Can someone guide me how to simply restore the my music folder as a default?

Media Player Cannot Find Music

My problem is similar to the problem that amanda wise was experiencing except that i am running windows 7. After uninstalling and reinstalling windows 7 for a different problem, i lost my library in wmp. The files were backed up to an external hard drive. Now i cannot get wmp to go and get the files from the external drive. I installed musicmatch from an old disk and it had no problem finding all of my music. I can rip music from a cd with wmp but, a lot of my files were from vinyl and and it is time consuming to replace all of them. I prefer to use wmp because musicmatch will no longer support anything on the web.

Media Center Cannot Find Music

I have 100+ cd's stored as wav files under my music. They were ripped using exact audio copy and accuraterip. I have repeatedly pointed media center at the directory and instructed it to find my music files but it has not found one. There are currently 102 artist directories with close to 200 albums and more than 2500 songs in my music directory. Media center cannot find my video files either but it had no problem finding my pictures.

How do i get media center to see my music and video files?

Extremely Slow Music Import

I've got a fresh install of windows 7 on a new system and am adding music to my wmp library. The music folder is around 60 gb and is stored on my whs. The music import has been running now for almost 24 hours and is finally almost done. This seems like a ridiculous amount of time required to import music.

On my older vista system (much lower specs), the same import took way less time ( i think under a couple hours) and i was on a 100mbps ethernet. With the new system, i'm on a gigabit ethernet.

Why would it be taking so long under windows 7 compared to vista?

Note: i have unchecked the check box to retrieve additional information from the internet, and it didn't make a difference

System specs:
Amd ii x2 250 dual @ 3. 0 ghz
4 gb ram
Windows 7 32 bit

Music Playback Issue In Win 7

Since i upgraded to the retail version of windows 7 from the rc, i have been experiencing issues with my music. I usually use mediamonkey for playing my music but i ran into this strange problem where songs would loop backwards, the seek bar would keep going as normal but the song would skip backwards and keep doing that in similar intervals, which was terribly annoying. Trying to stop the song would result in the computer hanging for a while.

I decided to try windows media player and i found that my music was now skipping sometimes. I have never encountered errors like this previously, and i'm not sure what could be the problem. I updated all my codecs, i updated my sound drivers as i had been using the ones that windows chose for me upon installation, but nothing seems to work.

This is terribly frustrating as music along with simple web browsing and instant messaging are my main uses for this computer.

Re-organize My Video, My Music Folders

I'm having som e annoying problems with the my videos, my photos and on. I have an 80gb intel ssd for windows, games, and programs, i also have a 500gb samsung hdd which i would like to have movies, music, documents and other stuff. But when i booted the pc from the w7 disc to the ssd, all my user folders was located on my ssd, where they should not be.

Is there any way i could move all my user folders? Can i just cut out and paste the folders, or will this do anything to the system? I know there have been several threads about similar issues, but i have seen through them and i did not get any smarter.

"How can i correct the following error message? As far as i know i didn't change anything. Brand new computer, pre loaded with windows 7 and ms office 2010 windows media player cannot play the file. A network firewall might be preventing the player from opening the file by using the udp transport protocol.

Music Note Error In Cakewalk Sonar 2

Does anyone have a suggestion for solving the following problem when opening cakewalk sonar 2 ? - Although from the number of messages i have seen posted, it seems this is a problem for most versions of cakewalk. Error flags up as: 'cannot create the staff view musical symbol font'. In practice this means that when selecting the staff view (sheet music) all that shows are different shaped symbols instead of musical notes. I have re-installed sonar and the staff view shows fine first time, but then after one use it reverts back to symbols.
