Hi Keith

If you use Windows Media Player as your Music Player, then simply open Media Player, insert your blank CD and then on the side of the window there should be a tab called 'Copy yo CD or Device', Click on this. To put the songs you want on the CD, go to the drop down menu on the 'Items to copy' side and look for "All Music". There will be a small box on the side next to a song name and click on it to check the song if you wish to add it, or uncheck it for the song not to be added. A CD will on average fit about 20 songs so i would aim for this for each CD. Once you have selected your songs click the 'copy' button, which has a 'record' symbol beside it and your done.

Hope this helps you

(Instructions Based on Windows Media Player 9, but current ones such as 10 or 11 should be similar, if not identical)

I get a tracking error code when trying to write to a CD. I don't have the code number with me, but it ends with 1h. The program I'm using is Cakewalk Pyro and I'm converting a tape to a CD. ...


so what CD??? CD-R recordable, CD-RW?
No PC stated. NO OS stated ,wow.
just DC3000 and some kind of VHS tape?
My guess bad media. (CD-r)
or the drive it self is bad.
or as all XP are , virus infected,




the spec says

Would like to copy my pictures onto a CD


I guess you have a CD writer/Combo or DVD writer on your computer.
Assuming you have Windows XP, I'll answer the question. (If you have Win 7 still you may be able to figure out how to do this after reading these instructions).
Select the pictures you want to copy. Right-click on one of them and select Send To --> (Your CD Writer) from menu. (If you have pictures in several locations you can go to each folder and do this).
You will see a text balloon appearing on bottom right corner saying 'You have files waiting to be written to CD'. Click on this balloon or open the CD writer from 'My Computer'.
Click 'Write these files to CD' from the left. Insert a blank CD and proceed.

A freind let me borrow their hp dvd 1040e external 20x multiformat dvd writer. i can burn the music on cds fine with itunes, but i cant figure out how to use the litescribe to burn images on the tops....


You will need Nero burning software. It will after the normal burn show you a screen where you place the image you want to burn for lightscribe. Another failing with lightscribe is that you must have lightscribe discs!

My dell cd writer has stopped reading CD's & will not burn music it just says "insert disc" even when there is a disk in. PC is only about 2 years old


Hi,
This is unfortunately a fairly common problem with optical drives, from both laptops and desktop pc's. It unfortunately means replacing your writer or if this is too costly you could opt for an external writer which plugs into a USB port.
Best wishes,

Dvd cd writer does not detect disc in drive when i want to burn


Sometimes you need to have a burning software like nero or roxio, if you want to get music from an audio cd you can use rip by going to the windows media player but if not tell me what kind of software you are using for copying.
