Recently opened my music, pressed "Copy all items to audio CD". Music copied al right, but none of the titles or other music info got copied :thumbsup: I've been told that I need to copy all the music files as data onto my CD-Rs in order to capture all that other stuff. Is this correct? How do I copy data onto a disc?

Are you trying to burn an audio disc for a CD player, or are you trying to burn a data disc with audio files on it? One is burned as an audio CD, the other is just a data disc.

I am trying to burn all my music stored on my laptop to CDs so that I can transfer them to my new desktop, and ultimately sync that collection with my MP3 player. Thus I want to have all the music as well as the titles, genres, etc so I can sort through them on the MP3 player.

Then just make sure the files don't go through any conversion process and it isn't burned as an audio CD. If you're using XP's built in cd burning function, just drag and drop the files. Or use a proper burning program.

I've been trying all night :thumbsup: I followed all the steps in the Microsoft article. When I click "Copy this folder", popup window displays "Copy Items". I then click on CD Drive (D) and then "Copy". All I get is a popup with an X in a red circle with a message saying " D:\ is not accessible
Incorrect function
I tried ALL the suggested troubleshooting and more. NOTHING WORKS!
Help!!!! :flowers:

Stupid question here, you can kick me if you like but...

Is your CD drive capable of burning CDs?

I ask because I've met people with the same complaint as you, who didn't realize that they only had CD-ROM drives.

Like I said, you can kick me if you want. :thumbsup:

That surly wasn't a stupid question.

I know of people that think they can burn dvd's, but their burner is a dvd-rom/cd-burner.

You were right on the money with that question.

[Added info]
I will for certainly ask that question for sure, from now on. I forgot about it, but Amazing Andrew, you made me think again, when I try to help others.

Thanks!

Thats what I used originally to burn the discs getting only the music without the data.
However I downloaded the free version of Deepburner and burned the CDs as data. This worked like a charm. I now have all my music on my new desktop and in my MP3. Thanks Walkman for another Bleepingcomputer success story :thumbsup:
