iTunes Freezes when trying to burn a CD

  BrianColneRoad 18:12 21 Feb 2010

When I hit the Burn Disc in iTunes, iTunes freezes and I have to shut it down by using the task manager.
Has anyone any ideas of how to rectify this?
I am using Windows XP and I have tried uninstalling and re installing iTunes. Thanks

Do you have all windows updates installed including service pack 3?

Could be a problem with the registry componets, and that u are downloading a corrupt file...if u still currently have it installed the remove it with here

..prob the best prog to remove leftover files then re-install

If still have probs afterwards then let us know

If the Music is Playing Stop it.

Make Sure the CD is clean or the right format (CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW, make sure it matches your drive).

Make Sure non of the music you are trying to burn is corrupt.

Make sure all the check boxes are checked.

Close any running apps.

If you have 2 drives take the disc out of the second one.

Update iTunes to the latest version.

Use Windows Update To Update all drivers and OS.

ANd if something in there doesn't work then hell i have no clue.

Can you burn to CD NOT using iTunes? (by any other method)

  BrianColneRoad 13:05 22 Feb 2010

Yes I can burn to CD using other methods but it would be much easier if I could use iTunes. I have updated everything so it looks like I will have to call it a draw.
