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.

  • 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.

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

    * Original title: extension of the cda

    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.

    Maybe it's my way of asking the question, I don't know.
    Here it is again:
    1 burn audio CDs. This is the original CD, no tears.
    2. I burn data CDs. In this sense I have archive writing, planning and designs on CD/DVD.
    3. I know the difference between burning via WinExplorer and WinMedia thing.
    4. everything I burn work fine where it is supposed to.,.
    5. my equipment is fine. Nothing is broken. IT ALL WORKS.
    What I want:
    I want to burn the Audio CD and have "lists of track/name" instead of XXX1.cda.
    I DON'T WANT the .cda extension.
    Is this possible?
    So please: don't tell me what are the .cda extensions or what they or suggest various utilities for troubleshooting hardware or software that works very well.

    "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.
