Error 4310 when burning CD's

by Boricua / September 2, 2006 11:21 AM PDT

Okay folks,

Let's see if you can help me out with this one. I have a situation here. My wife and I tried to burn some music to a CD using iTunes. The songs were recently purchased from the iTunes Music store. The problem that we are having is while the playlist is in the process of burning it'll stop the process after about a minute and a pop-up box shows up saying "The attempt to burn disc failed. An unknown error occurred (4310)." What's going on and what can I do about it? It doesn't happen when we burn CD's from music not purchased from the iTunes Music Store. Please help. Thanks everybody.

I also copied this from the cd diagnostics: The last failed audio CD burn had error code 4310(0x000010d6). It happened on drive D: TEAC CD-W58E on CDR media at speed 8X.

Tell how old is that drive and did you...

Try a CD/DVD lens cleaner?

If the drive is over 2 years old I test it again with a new drive.

....Removing video files from the burn cue? That's what did it for me!

Save to desktop. Run installation.
When done, restart computer.
My CD has now burned successfully! Hope this helps someone else!
