  2. Windows Media Player burning music Problem. When I click "start burn" with my disk in the computer, it tells me to insert a blank disk

    Hello Mehrzad,

    We realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with burning music in a blank DVD. We will certainly help you.

    The disk you are using ,is it a Read/ Write disk or a Normal disk (copy write CD)?

    Let me inform you, if you are not using a Read/ Write CD/DVD then you will not be able to burn the music in the DVD.

    Put an empty disk in the drive open my computer and double click on the CD inserted. And check for the status of the CD, if its CD/DVD-RW drive, if any files appear in explorer greyed out then delete them by clicking "Delete these temporary files".

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to fix the issue.

    Method 1:
    If you are trying to copy the songs to CD, follow the below steps.


    If the CD is copy right protected. You will not be able to copy songs to the computer if the CD is copy right protected.

    Also try to clear the burn list if any old list of songs available and try to copy again and see if it helps.

    Method 2: Windows media player settings troubleshooter

    Also try the Windows media player settings troubleshooter and see if it helps to resolve the issue.


        • Select settings in the drop down menu below search and type
          Troubleshooting.

        • Click on Troubleshooting
          and select the view all option on the left pane.

        • Click on Windows media player settings
          and follow the prompts.

  3. Burning CD with Windows Media Player

    Hi Carey,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I will be glad to assist you with this.

    Firstly, Windows Media Player requires that content intended to be burned to discs be first stored on the computer's hard disk. Therefore, I would suggest you to copy all the songs to a folder first and then proceed to the next step.

    Once that is done, I would suggest you to refer to the help article below for steps to burn the CD and check if it helps.

  4. Errors when attempting to burn a music disk using Windows Media Player

    WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER 12 IN WINDOWS 10 WILL NOT BURN AN AUDIO CD FROM SONGS IN THE WAV FORMAT

    The exact error message was: "Windows Media Player cannot burn some of these files. To investigate the problem check the icon next to the files in the burn list"

    Click "OK" then click on "Blank Disk (FErrors when attempting to burn a music disk using Windows Media Player :)". One or more songs in the burn list will have a red circle containing an X beside it along with a message "An Error Occurred".

    I have only attempted to burn popular music files. From these, there is no particular specific music file that stands out as being the cause of the problem.

    Before this particular issue, I prepared a burn list of 22 songs in wav format from a different artist and after 2 or 3 attempts, I was unsuccessful to burn a CD. I then reduced the burn list to 18 songs and after 2 attempts the burn was successful.

    Next, is the second attempt to burn a music CD. I was successful after 2 attempts using music files in the wav format from another artist. The burn list contained 3 songs.

    This leads to the third attempt to burn a music CD which so far has been unsuccessful and is the subject of this post.

    The music files are again from a different artist.

    I purchased this notebook new, approximately one month ago.

    I hope that this information is helpful.
