CD-R Burn Not a Burning Success

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Yet another burning issue for you all - but great forum, and program for sure!

Inserted a brand new gold "That's CD-R for Audio 80 (Special Selection disc)" into a rather venerable TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-224BB, after WMP 12 reporting only 74 minutes of the expected 80 burnable. Dragging the WMP playlist (79.5 minutes) into the cdburnerxp (cool) and set to burn at the slowest speed (16). cdburnerxp did not report any problem with the playlist duration, so it was assumed all the items would be included.

The finalise check was active. The drive ramped up with a burning message, but no progress bar showed after about 3 minutes. Assumed there was a problem with either the drive or disc (or both) and cancelled. Noted the drive had the text names on the cda tracks, and the first track had around half a minute of sound. The disc cannot be formatted (defaults in Disk management) or re-written to, unfortunately, so trying a new one.

Before doing that, is there anything that can be done to either the drive or software interface to limit the chance of errors? 

Thanks for reading!

floele? Anyone?

Is there supposed to be a progress bar showing through the burning process? Unable to locate another with similar issue. What's the recommended course of action from now? Notwithstanding cdburnerxp has not reported errors,  but in any case is it worth considering a log or SPDT?

Thanks again.

The progress bar should show the progress, sure. If it does not seem to do anything, trying SPTD would indeed be a good idea.

Otherwise using a different burning mode (use pause between tracks and no CD-Text to burn track-at-once) might be worth a try.

However, if you have been burning 10 year old discs (if I understand that correctly) that might also be an issue ;)
