Subject: Recording CDs

Warning for all eejits out there, from another one: if you're recording a CD to play on your CD player, not your computer, don't use a rewritable CD.

I wanted to make a compilation of favourite tunes, but thought it would be handy to record over it if I got bored and wanted a new compilation. After six tries I discovered that rewritables don't play on anything except a computer.

Problem solved. Now if I could only work out how to network a PC and a Mac with only one monitor!


I moved this message here from another thread on the same topic. The messages below are from a new thread.

CDs not burning. These are 650MB recordable CDs, and I'm using Nero, and here are the messages I'm getting when I try to copy a CD: --------

i 12:27:52 Read CD done i 12:31:59 Start of speed measurement i 12:31:59 Speed measurement done: 20x (3063KB/s) i 12:31:59 Start of simulation at 4x (600KB/s)

x 12:35:10 Write error, loss of streaming x 12:35:10 Could not perform Write Audio x 12:35:10 >>>10:01:12<<< x 12:35:26 Simulation failed at 4x (600KB/s) -------

In this case the "i" is a little i in a circle, meaning, I assume, Information; the "x" is a warning-looking X in a circle.

After these, a dialog box comes up saying:

---- Simulation failed at 4x (600KB/s) ---

What am I doing wrong, please? My son says that I may need to defrag my hard drives . Could he be right?

Sorry if this is off topic - if anyone can help I'd be very grateful. I'm trying to make an interim copy of a CD. (Meanwhile I went to Rykodisk to order the same CD and got a "Warning: security certificate may not yet be cleared" type message; when I emailed them to ask to buy it I got no reply. Seems the gods don't want me to hear this singer.)

this might not be any help; I have adaptec software and haven't done much copying
I do close all other running programs while I run it - antivirus, screensaver, anything else in the tray that might kick in and interupt the process. When I have had problems it has often been the first disc in the spindle of blank discs, as though it got damaged during delivery
Otherwise I knock down the write speed to ensure I get a copy. Are you copying the whole disc at once or track by track?
Good Luck
roger

try reducing the speed. at 4x you would copy an hour CD in 15 minutes - at 2x in half an hour - at 1x an hour

Defrag the drive you're using before recording; if it's audio, don't attempt to write at more than x2 speed (data can safely be written faster).  Shut any programs that may try to write to disk; -everything but Explorer and Systray, if I remember right (use ctrl+alt+del).  If you're copying a CD, copy it to your hard drive first, rather than trying to copy directly from a cd-reader.

Thanks. I'm using Nero; I'm not sure how to lower the speed, but I'll fish around and see if I can work it out.

Funny thing is that they were recording fine before.

There is a great site where you can get responses from other people using your same equipment at http://www.audioforums.com/ . You might find it helpful, Margo
