iTunes: Can't burn a dvd/ cd-r (Error 4280)

by Syrinx77 / April 30, 2013 10:37 AM PDT

Trying to burn a data cd/ dvd of music & I keep getting some error 4280 window. ("Burn failed..")

Tried lowering the burn speed, Googling the problem. Seems plenty of people have the same problem, but no one has a real solution.

Seriously- why does everyone seem to sing iTunes' praises? It mostly sucks. Thanks for any help.

Never thought of using iTunes for a data CD/DVD.

Sorry but let me go with something I use for data discs. CDBURNERXP. Seems fine.
