  • Help to burn an Audio CD

    When I try ry to burn an audio file using Media Player on Windows 7, I get this error on some of the songs to burn: "it is not possible to determine if this file can fit on a disc because Windows Media Player cannot detect the length of the file.  Playback of the file before burning could allow the player to detect the length of the file. "Could not resolve.  Help?

    Thank you for your suggestions.  I kept repeating the process dragging my audio selections from my playlist for selection to burn and finally ones I had trouble with was shown without the small red x indicating the indeterminable length error.  Then I successfully burned the CD; hope this is the last time to the question.  Thanks again.

  • I want to burn the Audio CD and have 'lists of track/name' instead of.cda extensions.

    I asked this before, but apparently what I'm asking is impossible to do, nobody understands my question, nobody has the answer to my question, or those seeking to respond to start putting carts before horses to confuse with 'Troubleshootering,' 'Beware of 3rd party software', etc.

    "I WANT TRACK NAMES" on my music CD.
    Thank you.
    Mario in Victoria

    I understand that you want track names in the directory of
    your Audio CD (music), the same thing that you can on a data CD (MP3).

    Simple answer...

    The extension of the ADC will still be visible in the Audio directory
    (Music) CD.

    Take a look at one of your retail music CDs... and you will see that they
    are all like that. There is no way to display the track names in the directory
    CD audio (music).

  • I can not burn an Audio disc with Media Player 11

    My system = XP (SP3), 3 GB of RAM, Intel CPU G620

    Media Player 11 will not burn a playlist.

    I dragged a list of MP3 files to a playlist for burning.  However, when I click on the button burn, WMP11 starts to burn apparently the first track on the list but then stops at 96%. I tried at different speeds, the media and even a CD - RW and the same thing happens.
    Curiously, that WMP11 is burning track 1, the progress bar indicates "finalize disc". This would seem a strange message because it is just the first piece of 10 and so has not yet reached the end of the list.
    After the burn hangs at 96% for a few seconds, I get the error message;
    "Windows media player cannot burn the files to the CD. Check that the disc is clean and not damaged. If necessary, select a slower recording speed or try a different brand of blank discs.
    HOWEVER, I also have NERO 7 and I have absolutely no problems burning the same Audio disc.
    It's extremely frustrating and I would appreciate some advice on this.

    I decided to go back to WMP 9 and then reinstalling WMP11

    Now, everything works as it should!
    However, I found an absolutely terrible navigation in WMP11 - sometimes I don't know where to go for a task. Nero - although his gripes - is a breeze in comparison.

    Hi SupportTech2010,

    Method 1

    Check if the problem persists in mode safe mode with network mode and post back with the details.

    A description of the options to start in Windows XP Mode


    Method 2

    If the problem does not persist in mode safe mode with networking mode, then it is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State


    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    1. Click Start , and then click run.
    2. Type msconfig , and then click OK.
      The System Configuration utility dialog box appears.
    3. Click the general tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services , and then click OK.
    4. When you are prompted, click restart to restart the computer.

    Method 3

    If the previous step fails, then I suggest that you create a network drive in Windows and check if it helps.
