Burn failures troubleshooting

There are many many reasons why a burn can fail. Here are some things to check:

  • Try a different blank CD or DVD.
  • Do a test first
  • Try a different brand of blank CD or DVD. Sometimes Sony CDRs work better with Sony burners or TDK"s get along better with Samsung burners, etc.
  • Turn off or shut down other CD burning programs or programs that have CD burning capability such as iTunes, Roxio, Nero, Acoustica MP3 CD Burner, etc.
  • Try burning at a slower speed.
  • If you have more than one CD burner, try the other one. Shut down all programs running and leave your computer alone during burning.
