When burning an Audio CD using CD-R or CD-RW I am getting an error from windows media player 12.
"Windows Media Player cannot burn some of the files. To investigate the problem, click the icon next to the files in the burn list."
Software installed on system is
- Windows 10 build 1803 (x64)
- Media Player 12.0.17134.81
- Nero 2018 Platinum
Using a LG model WH16NS40 drive and Magnavox 52x 700MB 80min disc. My C: drive is a Samsung 500 GB 850 SSD that contains my library of MP3 files. My paging file is managed by the system on a RAID 0 drive D: comprised of 3 Samsung 1 TB 850 SSD drives. Intel i7 7820X CPU and 128 Gigs of RAM.
Steps to reproduce,
- Open Media player
- Select enough MP3's in your library to fill the disc (I was using 700 MB discs)
- Add them to a new bun list in Media Player
- Insert a CD into drive. (tried both CD-R and CD-RW with same results)
- From the "Burn" tab in Media Player I selected the "Start Burn" button
- I immediately was given an error message:
- "Windows Media Player cannot burn some of the files. To investigate the problem, click the icon next to the files in the burn list."
- Changed to optical drive letter (mine is drive E:) in media player. Status in media player stated "An Error Occurred"
- Selected the red X next to file. It said the following:
- "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while burning the file to the disc."
- Press the "Start burn" again and now different files from the same list are causing the error. Never gets to processing the files for the burn
- Keep pressing "Start Burn" until it works and no errors are reported. No changes of the audio files just clicked the "Start Burn" button.
Burn options in Media player are:
- Burn Speed - Slow
- Audio CDs
- Apply volume leveling across tracks - CHECKED
- Burn CD without gaps - CHECKED
- Data Discs
- Add a list of all burned files to the disk in this format: - M3U
- Use media information to arrange files in folders on the disc - CHECKED
I have a video of the this process to back up what I'm reporting YouTubeLink
The problem is when I have a large selection of files I want to burn to multiple Audio discs, I have to "baby sit" the process and only process enough files to fill one disc (multiple discs won't retry just moves onto the next set of files). A burn of multiple discs is a nightmare using Windows Media player and is as pleasant as backing up a 1 TB drive to floppies.
I've seen other posts about un-installing media player (did that), defrag the hard drive (SSD try again), Clean the CD lens, CD's are old technology (really!!!, an excuse I seen on this forum from another user). https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-pictures/windows-media-player-wont-burn-cds/ee7bf79e-1000-4c38-9259-d8eaf71dee1c
Please fix Media Player so it won't error out on files that are obviously not the problem. I've been using Media Player since version 10. I've tried others and they either focus on doing too much, poorly or don't have this ability to burn a playlist as easily at Media Player.
