"The audio file is DRM protected and cannot be burned to disc" - again!

Recommended Posts

This 'bug' has been reported before (https://forum.cdburnerxp.se/topic/8502-c-audio-file-is-drm-protected-and-cannot-be-burned-to-disc/), and claimed to have been fixed "in the next release" but I have been using CDburnerXP fine for two+ years with no problems. This morning, trying to burn a disc of the same music, fresh export from cubase, I get the above message for the first time. This was on version 4.5.6; I uninstalled it & went back to version 4.5.4, and the same thing. Opening projects I have successfully burned before, I get the message too - not always on all the files, but on some of them.

These are wav files of my own music, recorded by me, mixed and exported by me in exactly the same way I have been doing since I had this machine and version of cubase, and successfully burned in the past, sing both versions of CDburnerXP (and whatever version was originally installed on the machine when I bought it new in 2013.

Windows 7 pro, i7, 32GB RAM, Cubase 7.5.20, CDburnerXP 4.5.4.5143....what is going on?

Just installed 4.5.6.6029 - same problem; can't drag & drop files into new compilation, open old compilations which this program has happily burned to disc before, now it won't add them. I don't understand the 'is not a supported audio file' - it's a 44.1kHz wav file! Anyway, error log attached.

Well, thanks, but same problem. I don't think there's an issue with my sound card (Hammerfall 96/52DSP), but ...?
I don't know if this is relevant, but the last project I managed to burn with CDburnerXP, was a selection of files which it successfully burned, and all seemed to be correctly playing on many machines.
One CD player wouldn't play the disc though, so in the course of copying the files across to another computer I have, with CD architect, I noticed some of them were at 48kHz!
This was an error on my part as I'd exported one at this rate for a video, and forgotten to change it back in Cubase. I've since reexported them all at 44.1kHz, 16bit stereo.
Nevertheless, CDburnerXP seemed to dither the files on the fly to 44.1kHz, & they all sounded good.
Since then, I haven't been able to burn anything because of this 'BASS_ERROR_INIT' issue. I appreciate your attention; I couldn't manage to post this any other way than as an attachment!

Update!
Yesterday unable to play a cd in drive! Maybe it's the drive?
Will CDburnerXP compile a tracklist without a blank cd in the tray though?
Yes, it will! And it burned it this morning, no problem. And now the drive plays cds too!
So problem appears to be fixed, and all a red herring. My apologies, and thanks for your help.
The Insistence that the FILE is DRM protected sure is misleading though!
Incidentally, dvd burner is a Pioneer BDR 208D, if that info is any use to your future consultations!

OK, I will make add a potential workaround anyway if the problem ever occurs again.

Also, what does your "reply" box look like? You should be able to enter a text just like I am.

Here you could try Audio DRM Converter, it is a DRM removal program designed by DRmare. It can not only help you remove DRM protection, but also can convert audio files in MP3 and other formats in a faster speed and with lossless quality. Then you can play the converted files on other devices and also burn to cd. Hope this will help you.

Could I confirm whether your audio files come from iTunes, Apple Music or Audible? If yes, before burning them to Disc, the first thing you need to do is to remove DRM from all protected audio files. 

To do this, you can have a try of AudFree DRM Audio Converter, which can not only bypass DRM lock but also convert protected audio files to common audio formats, like MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, M4A and M4B so that you can import them to other players that you used to burn them to Disc. 

Hope this is helpful for you.
