Problem with CD Writing Wizard

Q: Problem with CD Writing Wizard


I have a problem with MS CD Writing Wizard with Windows XP, SP2.

When I try to burn a CD with the option "Automatically eject the CD after
writing" the wizard burns the CD and ejects it. Then, when I try to add
some new files to the CD and burn it again, the wizard doesn't recognizes
the disc (after inserting). Then I need to login again to make the wizard
see my CD and burn the files.

When I turn off that option - everything is all right - even if I manually
pull out the CD and put it again, the wizard recognizes the CD and
burns the files properly.

What can cause this problem ?


Preferred Solution: Problem with CD Writing Wizard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Problem with CD Writing Wizard

Well, from my experience with Windows' built-in burner software it has been hit or miss. I now use Nero for burns that work all the time, any time. There is a free burning program that is allmost as good as Nero, and far better than XP's buring wizzard called:

XP CD writing wizard writes files to CD. I get the message 'Your files have been successfully written to the CD'. The tray opens upon completion. When I close everything out an try to read CD contents from Windows Explorer it shows empty! I have tried the trouble shooter, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the CD driver all to no avail. When I burn files to the CD from Nero Express everything works fine. After this burn I can read the file OK from Windows Explorer. What gives? Am at my wits end. Any help appreciated.

Then, why can't you use Nero Express? Sometimes. when more than one burning software is installed, their drivers conflict.

Have you installed any other CD or DVD software? Have you uninstalled any?

I have figured out that the reason my computer can't burn data cd's but can burn audio cd's is because the CD Writing Wizard is just simply not on my comp. This doesn't make since because I have Windows XP Professional Edition. It should be there, right? If I truly don't have it, what can I do so that I can burn data CD's and quit getting errors? (Note: I can take the same blank CD and have it be recognized and able to be burnt on another computer in my home that runs Windows XP Home Edition. It is not that my CD-Writer can't read the CDs, because, like i said, it can read formerly blank CD-R disks turned Audio disks)

I am trying to copy files to a CD-RW disc using the drag & drop method in Windows Explorer. The CD Writing Wizard appears to work until an error pops up that says something like "The process has failed, please make sure the CD you are using is not scratched or damaged".

The CD-RW discs are brand new Memorex Ultra-Speed CD-RW discs.

Anyone know what the problem is ??

I keep getting the error message "cannot complete the CD writing wizard". The files I want to transfer to the CD are under Picture Tasks. I have been following all the instructions in Windows Help, but to no avail. I am using Windows XP. I am trying to clean up my computer by removing the photo files. My computer is running very slowly, and was told that perhaps all my digital files were taking up too much space. Any suggestions would be so appreciated.

I intalled Nero because I wanted to try out overburning. That failed miserably, and now, I can't burn using the XP Utility. (I'm using SP2.) I tried uninstalling Roxio, reinstalling the CD-RW Driver, and running the Nero General Cleanup tool. The Cleanup tool said I had directed it to an invalid path, even though I put in C:>Program Files>Nero, where there were still files present. But it did something anyway and said it had been completed.

I also found this:


which lists my error specifically and says "This error message may occur if the IMAPI CD Burner service is turned off. To resolve this issue, make sure that the service is running and that it has not been turned off. By default, the service is set to Manual. Start the IMAPI CD Burner service, and then test it by writing to a CD-R or a CD-RW. If the service works, you may have to set the service to Automatic if it does not start in Manual mode. To set the service to Automatic, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
3. Under Service Status, click Start.
4. Try to write data to a CD."

I have xp pro on my laptop. Earlier I used to burn CDs by xp cd writing wizard which used to open automatically but for last 3-4 days, when I try to write songs on blank cd, windows media player automatically opens for writing. When I try to write songs using it, it shows the writing process and message of successful writing but CD remains blank. I do not wish to use this program, instead I want the earlier one, cd writing wizard. I have checked the usual solutions like 'enabling cd recording', 'disabling media player' but to no avail. Can anybody suggest some solution? (not Nero or any such).

Having a problem with burning pictures to CD. Using the Win XP to copy these files and burn them to CD.

i have tried folders all at once and one folder at a time. One folder got burned but next one wouldn't and ruined whole disc. I have folders in MY Pictures file and each folder is labeled Jan, Feb, Mar etc. All pics in them are jpeg's and I even took off the 'thumbnail' views in case that was giving me the error.

I went through all the pics in the folders to make sure they were all good and all jpeg's. All looked fine.

I have downloaded HP PHoto Essentials and tried using that to burn my pictures. I get an error with that also. Same with NERO. NERO came up as LEAD OUT FAILED.

I checked out the Microsoft forum and it said to check that the iMap service was started and running----it is and has been.

I sit here while it is burning and it looks like it does the lead in --- then the burn--- and the problem happens on the final steps for use.

an error occured and cannot complete the CD - there was an error in the writing process. The disc you have attempted to write may no longer be usable. Shows as full in properties yet no files or folders will show up.

I have burned hundreds of cd's in the past --- music, data and pictures all with no problem.

A:cant burn pics to cd with cd writing wizard

I have burned many types of things with the Windows XP burner. I have gotten the same error with the disks. The disk may no longer be usable. But that does not necessarily mean that it is no longer usable. I burned something else to the disk and it worked just fine. Most Cd's today are 700MBs and if they are a Cd-R this means you can keep writing new things to the disk till it is full. As in you can write something to it complete the burning process and then burn something else later. A Cd-RW however you can write something to it and then later if you don't want it on there no longer you can erase the CD. But you can't delete on thing at a time on the CD. All you can do is copy all the stuff you want to keep to a folder on your computer then erase the CD and put the stuff on the Cd then the stuff you didn't want on the CD will no longer be there. Now if these Cd's you have are new and they are doing this you can take it up with the manufacturer and get a full refund from them. But if they are old like a month or something and they give you these problems then they will not help you. So all of those Cd's that you trashed if they were new then you just wasted your money. But also the Cd's could be getting written wrong because the CD burner is too old and it is writing this improperly or the laser on the CD burner is damaged.

A:[SOLVED] How do I open Windows XP CD Writing Wizard?

Hi Rude,

The Writing Wizard only opens when you're ready to write files to CD.
Remember that XP can't write DVD's.

As a test, insert a blank CD and Drag some files to the CD Drive .
This should start the whole writing process. Either a bubble will appear in your system tray stating there are files waiting to be burnt to CD, or you can see the option Write These Files to CD in My Computer.

Alternatively, use a CD Burning program such as Nero or Roxio.

Purchased Dell Inspiron 8200 in January 2003 w/XP Home. Already installed was the Writing Wizard by Roxio. Problem: We have no problem in "Copy all items to CD" within My Pictures., but when attempting to place them on CD the Wizard simply tells us that it cannot do so.

Anyone had this problem? Is there a fix? Is there software on a "trial" or "freeware" that can copy pictures to CD?

I'm trying to figure out how to disable the CD-Writing Wizard in WinXP on a per-user basis. I know it's straight forward on a per device basis, but I have a specific need to stop certain users from using the service.

Is there an HKCU reg setting to deal with this?

Any help would be much appreciated!

My Internal 'SONY CD-RW CRX100E' drive was freezing and making coasters at the lead-out stage when using Nero6. I deleted the program (uninstall file was corrupt), and have since tried (with a number of blank cds) to burn files just under 700mb with the windows xp cd writing wizard. Each time I get the following message:

Cannot Complete the CD Writing Wizard

This CD does not have enough free space for all
your files. There is 595 MB free space on the disc,
and 699 MB to be written. To continue, please
reduce the total amount to be written by 104 MB.

This is a pain in the ***. I haven't interfered with any hardware since it started playing up so i'm thinking it must be a driver or device settings problem. I'd be grateful of some technical advice.

I have a Blue-Ray Drive on my HP-G70 120. I am running on WIndows 7. Recently, my blue-ray drive has been disturbing a lot. I wrote to CDs and DVDs before, and it worked fine. Also, I can read from the discs, so I dont think there is a problem with the laser, rather I suspect some problem with the software.

My Problems are:
Clicking on the drive icon says its a blank disc, though the disc is not.
While at other times, ejecting the drive from windows or from the button says "An error occurred while ejecting BD-ROM". At other times it ejects fine.
I burned some files onto a CD that already had 80MB written on it, using BurnAware. Now, after burning, only the previous (80MB) are present there, but no sign of the newest write. Also, it shows "0 bytes free of 80MB" when clicking properties on the drive icon in Windows Explorer.

So How do I fix these problems?

It is XP SP3 that is causing your problem. I have a Sony DRU 710A that stopped working after I installed XP SP3. It would not recognize any blank DVD media with Roxio or Nero. I pulled the drive out and put it in another machine that only had XP SP1 installed. The drive worked great. I then installed SP3 and the drive quit working again. I then uninstalled SP3 and the drive started working again. Microsoft needs to fix this problem. I hope someone can put enough pressure on them to fix this issue.

Realised I should be backing up my HD and tried to backup onto a CD-R with no joy so tried a CD-RW - no joy. Went and bought new CD-RWs in case the disks were at fault but still no joy.

Eventually found out that the Roxio version that I have can't be used on XP Professional so downloaded Nero 7 Demo. Still getting same messages.

When I try to copy I get a couple of different messages:
"Buffer underrun protection activated" and shows Type of disk in recorder: Empty
"Waiting for disc - Please insert disk to write to"

And previously got "Unrecognised data" and "insufficient space left" but it's a blank disk.

I've tried using Nero to do a quick erase but the Erase option isn't highlighted so can't.

I'm obviously missing something really basic ... anyone any ideas? I've attached aerror log in case this is of help.

Also, do I have to format all new disks before using and, if so, anyone know how to format using Nero 7 demo?

A:Problem Writing To Cd-r Or Cd-rw

Hi Denise. Roxio and Nero don't like to cohabitate (I found out the hard way). Uninstall both of them for the time being.Download and run XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip and unzip the contents. Run the EXE file. Reinstall Nero. If this doesn't work you could try using an inexpensive optical drive cleaning disk available at large retailers and computer shops.---------------------------There are 2 ways to store data on a RW disk. The first way is to burn to it like it is a CD-R and then erase the whole disc to reuse it. The other way is to use Nero's InCD driver to format the CD-RW. This will allow you to treat the disc as a 500MB removeable disc in which you can add and remove files and folders in Explorer as if it was a gigantic floppy. Only computers running InCD will be able to write to the disc.

That is a direct link for drivers for your FN keys. Try it and let me know how it works.

Hello Djtheninja. Welcome to the Forum.

You can get that error message if you have bad media (defective CDs or DVD's)

To get out of the optical drive freeze just restart Windows. Eject the disk when the computer begins to restart.

Then try the burn with another disk. Keep in mind that if you bought a pack of cheap disks there could be many that are no good.

I have an OPTORITE 48x16x48 CD-RW drive, CW4802, running Win ME. It seems to write to CD-Rs and CD-RWs that are the regular density 650MB, 74 minute types. However, it balks a lot and gives me a generic error telling me the media is damaged or has scratches or the software is bad, etc. whenever I use 700MB CD-RWs.

I updated the firmware to the latest version, but it wasn't far behind anyway.

I am using new (never written to) Memorex disks. Any tips or fixes on how to overcome this problem would be appreciated.
