    Here is a solution that worked for me, after nothing else would. Log out and back in to iTunes on your Mac/PC.
    I had exactly the same problems as above, and no amount of network changes or even a full restore would help.
    Finally, I went back to my PC, launched iTunes, logged OUT of that, then signed in again, this time with the new password.
    Then I had to go back, and properly close Facetime and iMessages and sign in. It worked fine after that.
    (To properly close an application, double click the home button, then hold down on the facetime app logo in the multitasking bar at the bottom, then press the tiny symbol.)
    Best of luck.

  • When trying to burn a playlist to a blank CD, iTunes 10.3.1 won't recognize the blank CD I've inserted (Verbatim CD-R). I've burned using these CDs before, this is a recent problem. Not the burner, as I can burn using Toast. iMac with Snow Leopard 10.6.8

    What kind of CD are you burning (Audio or MP3)?
    If you're burning an MP3 CD, the songs must already
    be in mp3 format.
    If not, iTunes will tell you that you have no songs
    in the playlist.

    I was making an audio cd. But I have since found out what the problem was. The files in my PLAYLIST I converted to aiff, since they were SDll files (I thought they were similar to AIFF, and they PLAY on Itunes...just won't burn.) When I selected the songs in the playlist and converted them...I thought all those files were converted, They were not. The converted files went into my LIBRARY, even tho I selected the ones in the playlist...and once I exchanged the SDll versions of the songs in my playlist. THEN they burned fine...but still...it's confusing..you say convert..it says it's been converted..and what they don't say is it's not been converted inside the playlist...where I had selected the songs...It just ADDED aiff versions..but only in the library...Anyway, that's what happened. But it's strange that it PLAYS SDll but won't burn them....and you'd think, logically..the ones you selected would change...but they don't. Playlists are mainly pointers to the actual files I guess...a sort of Alias..
    At least it works now. But it's sad that the latest itunes does more, but also does LESS...as I used to be able to burn SDll files. Now I'll have to convert all my files to AIFF, and mp3's as I assume my ipod video won't play anything but mp3's?

  • Why do I keep getting a message "insert blank disk" when trying to burn playlist to cd?

    Why do I keep getting a message "insert blank disk" when trying to burn playlist to cd? I can import burned cds to iTunes just fine, but cannot burn playlist to disk.

    because you have to be using a blank cd-rw or cd-r.

  • I tunes: when trying to burn a playlist I keep getting the message: the attempt to burn a disc failed. The disc could not be read from or written to. I am using version 12

    I tunes: I am using version 12 of I tunes. Ever since downloading it I get the message when trying to burn a playlist it says, The attempt to burn a disc failed. The disc could not be read from or written to.
    I uninstalled V-12 and then reinstalled it. This enabled me to burn a disc again but after a couple of tries I received the same error message again. Has Apple put out a fix to this problem that anyone is aware of?
    Thanks.

    Hi rossfrombluffton,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!  The resource below provides some general things to consider when burning a disc with iTunes.  I would also try burning a music CD and a data disc from a different application in the Windows OS and trying a different brand CD just to confirm the issue is not with the optical drive.
    Can't burn a CD in iTunes for Windows - Apple Support
    http://support.apple.com/en-ae/HT203173
    Find out what to do if you can't burn an audio CD using iTunes for Windows. Sometimes an audio disc may not burn as expected. Here are some things to check.
    Update iTunes
    Download and install the latest version of iTunes for Windows.Check for unauthorized songs
    iTunes will stop burning a disc if you purchased one or more of the songs in a playlist from the iTunes Store and the songs aren't authorized to play on your computer. This message should appear: "Some of the files can not be burned to an audio CD. Do you still want to burn the remainder of this playlist? For more information on why some files can not be burned, click below."
    To find out which songs aren't authorized, play each song in the playlist. Songs that play are authorized. Songs that don't play aren't authorized. You'll be asked to authorize any unauthorized songs.Make sure your playlist will fit on a single CD
    If there are too many songs in a playlist to fit on a single CD, iTunes should ask if you want to burn multiple discs or cancel the burn. This message should appear: "The songs in this playlist will not fit on one Audio CD. Do you want to create multiple Audio CDs with this playlist split across them? This will require more than one blank CD to complete."
    If you click the Audio CDs button, the burn will continue and you'll be asked to insert blank CDs until the playlist is completely burned. If you click cancel, the burn will be canceled.
    To make the playlist shorter so that it will fit on a single CD, select a song to remove from the playlist and choose Edit > Clear. Repeat this step until the duration of the playlist is between 60 and 80 minutes. The duration appears at the top of the playlist window. Most CD-R discs can hold 60 to 80 minutes of music.
    Check how many times you've burned the playlist
    An unchanged playlist that contains songs purchased from the iTunes Store can be burned no more than seven times.Additional steps and submitting feedback

  • What does error message when trying to burn DVD from iDVD mean "not enough disk space to burn the remaining assets"

    I created a DVD in idvd and now when trying to burn to DVD using external burner, I get the error message
    "not enough disk space to encode the remaining assets". I am using a brand new blank DVD.
    I have read the help info on computer but hasnt proved helpful.
    Any suggestions?

    iDVD requires a fair amount of disk space to carry out the encoding process; depending on your project, you may need to have over 25 GB free space on your startup hard drive.  How much free space do you have?

  • Get "error 4300" when trying to burn a playlist cd

    All at once I am getting this error when trying to burn a cd in iTunes.  Sometimes it will burn one song and then again it won't.

    Hello aleahcim915,
    I was looking through our resources for troubleshooting cd burning errors in iTunes for Windows, and came across some great information for you. I would first recommend you use this article named iTunes for Windows: Additional troubleshooting tips for burning issues found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1374.
    Start here, and work your way down:
    Resolution
    If after following the instructions in this document you still can't read or burn discs, try the following:
    Try other software
    Open a different music player, such as Windows Media Player, and test if it can play a CD you've burned.
    Open the CD burning software that came with your computer or disc drive, and test to see if it can burn a CD.
    If you're not able to read or burn discs using other software, there may be a more general issue with your computer or the drive. You should probably contact your computer or drive manufacturer for help. In the mean time, try the tips below.
    Use good blank discs
    Some brands of blank discs may work better with your drive than others. Check the disc manufacturer's website for the brand of blank discs you are using. Many brands post lists of drives that have issues burning to their discs. They may also publish tips on how to troubleshoot burning issues.
    You can use the chart below as a general guideline to assess what types of CD-R media are compatible with different drive types.
    If need be you can also re install iTunes, and Apple has another article that will walk you through that. For Windows 7+ and Vista, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923 depending on the version you have installed.
    All the best,
    Sterling

  • "Medium Write Error" when trying to burn a CD!!!!

    I keep getting a Medium write error when trying to burn an audio cd using ITunes. I already tried switching out cheap CD-R's for high quality ones and the same thing happens. I also can't burn a picture CD using finder because another error message pops up so i don't know what it could be... Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Could be an issue with the drive itself, especially if you have one of the Matshita drives installed in many Macbook Pro which are reported to be 'krappy' drives. See here for more info...
