Cannot read the CD in the CD/DVD drive after having burned the audio files in Windows Media Player

I burned an audio cd with windows media player, it works on my computer but not on a cd player (I tried several players). Any ideas what I could do wrong?

Original title: Windows Media Player



Please check the format to which the disk was burned. If the drive is made to a data disc format, several readers of cd or dvd will not be able to read its contents. In order for a disc in a cd player, it must be created in a format supporting by the player, which varies according to different manufacturers.

    Do you have an error message when you try to play with Media Player AVI files?

    Codec is available, the Windows Media Player installed on your computer, and then bed file. However, if the codec is not available on the server (for example, because)
    the codec not created by Microsoft), Windows Media Player displays a message that your computer is missing a codec.

  • Cannot use the feature set in windows media player for Onkyo TX - NR509 Receiver Media

    I have the Onkyo TX-NR509 and everything works fine except for streaming music from windows media player. (I can sink my iPhone to the receiver box and can even navigate to my music box cylinder head and all the Games very well).

    When I click with the right button on a song and select "play to" and then select the amplifier box "play to" appears and after a while an error message appears "cannot retrieve information about the UPnP Server media."

    My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv7 (Windows7 64-bit)

    I made a few simple troubleshooting;

    1. under Network TX-NR509 shows as a support device and I installed the drivers.

    2. I checked the options of streaming media and my receiver is set to "allowed".

    3. in WMP, I did of course "allow the remote control of my player" and "automatically allow devices to read my media" are both checked

    4 reboot the router & mobile.

    I have no idea what could be the cause and to say it's frustrating is an understatement.

    I'd appreciate any help you could offer.

    M4A is not supported. You can try
    copying a file and rename it to mp3 to see if it works, but probably not.
    you will most likely need convert files to mp3 format.

  • Cannot use the feature set in windows media player for Onkyo TX - NR609 Receiver Media

    Original title: Onkyo TX - NR609 Receiver Media

    Hi all

    I have the Onkyo TX-NR609 and it works great except for streaming music from windows media player. When I click on the 'play to' it will show the name of the amplifier and model number which I click on and then it opens the player where it will then tell me that "an error has occurred on the device" and then she'll tell me under the song that tries to open that "the device cannot be controlled."

    I have no idea what could be the cause and that it is a little frustrating is an understatement, onkyo iphone app works fine and I am able to listen to different radio stations as well as I have access to my windows media player via dlna library but it is a bit tedious so I don't tend to use it as well.

    Anyone had similar problems? If so I would appreciate any help you could offer, I was hoping it would be more directly towards the front and then it and exchanging the receiver for one with apple airplay but it brings another problem of having to transfer music between laptop-itunes-iphone/ipad then invert to remove the music and then do the same bloody back and forth. Apple had to do complicated things don't have.

  • How can I play the audio stream with Windows Media Player 11 AAC?


    I want to listen to a live stream of a Shoutcast radio station which is in AAC format. I want to play with my Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP SP3. I still don't play. It seems that it is not supported by WMP 11, but if missing a codec, it should be automatically downloaded from Microsoft, since the option "Download codecs automatically" is checked in the options of WMP, and my security level in Internet Options is set by default.

    Y at - there a way or a codec plugin, so I can play the stream AAC on WMP 11?

    Thank you.


    Orban AAC/aacPlus Plugin will allow WMP 11 to play AAC streams. Note that you have to replace the http stream with icyx URL part, so to read your example AAC stream, you must enter icyx:// in WMP, via file - Open URL... (press Ctrl + M, if you don't see the file menu). Tim Baets

  • Cannot change the location of the RIP file in Windows Media Player after losing Windows Home Server

    I got my place to rip on my windows-based server that had catestrophic failure. So I went to another WHS that I have. But since then, I could not change the location of the file rip in my Media Player.

    It seems that the problem is that it fails to find the location of the old server, gone, when I switch to tab EXTRACT music in WMP options. I say this because it take a long time to draw only a tab. And when I click the button change under music Rip to this place, it does nothing. I get no errors, but nothing happens. It is as if I never pressed the button. There is no delay or anything. And I can go and do other things immediately.

    How can I convince Media Player than the location should not be verified so I can put a new location to rip music to?


    Thanks for the reply. I tried the steps you recommended. But unfortunately, it has not changed the problem.

    However, she, it was pretty clear that something of the old MSS was always in the way. You could tell by the delay that made the selection of menu. So I went in MP, to organize - manage the music library. And sure enough, still listed as the default location is the old MSS. I've selected and tap on delete. Without delay, he removed and automatically changed the default location to a local drive. Problem solved! Now I can put my location of rip at ESM again and all is well again.

    Thanks again for your help.

  • Why NOT write the TAG ID information for the associated file? Windows Media Player 12

    I don't like iTunes and WMP12 looks worse.  Here's my problem...

    I edit the media information (sing or film etc...) by changing some information tag - track number, title etc...  Even when I select "Apply media information changes" in the "menu to organize the information of the tag does not change when I watch it by clicking the file and selecting Properties."  What gives?  I won't waste my time making sure that everything is organized and labeled correctly just so that WMP not attached this information in a file.  What worries me is that when I import the songs to another PC then all these information is lost.
    For example, I change the title of the track (you will need to change the title of the track, so WMP it sorts correctly because it does not support CD # in a multiple-CD box set)
    CD1 Title track 1
    CD1 Title track 2
    CD2 Title track 1
    CD2 Title track 2
    When I look at the file - nothing changes - UG!

    It sounds just like my question, so yesterday, I created a thread. I understand that it's quite old but thought if someone clicks on this thread, I might as well try and provide a response.

  • Error copying file or folder: cannot read the source file or disk.

    My problem occurs when you try to copy on the same computer I am on (or to a remote drive).  I get one of these messages in the dialog "error copying file or folder.


    Impossible to copy 'Filename': data error (cyclic redundancy check).
    Impossible to copy 'Filename': cannot read the source file or disk.

    Hey Norton victim,

    (a) what is your operating system?
    (b) what program file you are not able to copy?

    As the files are copied, Windows verifies that the data that has been copied are the same as the source files. The cyclic redundancy check (CRC) error occurs when the copied data does not match the original.
    This could be down to a mistake of the DVD, the disc goes wrong and has failed to 'read' the file properly or the file was placed on a bad sector on your hard drive. (Could be just down to a scratch or some marks on the dvd, maybe clean it if necessary and try again).
    I would run a check disk (CHKDSK) against the drive to rule that, although lacking - you have another dvd player to try the disc again? If so, try the dvd in another drive, or even a completely different machine to try to pin-point the problem.
    At the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER:
    Chkdsk /r
    Note: If bad sectors are detected when running check disk utility and attempt recovery of bad sectors is verified during the verification of the drive for errors, data in the bad sector can be lost as they tried to recover bad sectors.
