Hi, My problem is with my media player I can not burn cds that were once burnt. What I mean by this is if i have a copy of a cd and rip it and try to burn it. It will not burn. It just starts to inspect then just stops. Cant figure this out. If i have the cd that i bought it burns fine. any ideas?

Without more specific information, I can't be sure. But, what it sounds like is copy protection. Many CD's will allow you to make only one copy as a backup. Once that copy is made, it then becomes encrypted and cannot be copied again or copies of the copy made. hth

In the burning world finalizing means closing. You probably get asked if you want to finalize the CD, and this closes it with some form of encryption like Animal said. You can leave the CD 'open' and you would have to refuse to finalize the CD, but this open CD will not play on bog-standard CD players. If you wish to be able to add/remove things on a CD freely and have the opportunity to re-use a CD you would have to buy a CD-RW disc which is a rewritable disc.

I've read through this a number of times but i can't actually undertsand what you are trying to do. It's probably just my ignorance, but if you could explain in a bit more detail and clarity i will be most willing to help.

Hi again mikelivia

Can you tell me which software you are using to do this please. Have you tried a different software to burn this CD? Can you tell me which CD you are trying to burn?

I am using Windows Media player. I havent tried other software to burn the music cd i have. Its just a mix of music. I dont really know to much about computers thats why I havent really tried with other software.


By the way at the top of the page where it says free downloads do those sites work pretty good ?
