Cannot burn a music disc project to CD-R with WAV files

Question

First of all, yes, I can burn a Data disc. I have a Windows 7 machine. I am trying to burn an audio CD-R with WAV files that are saved to my PC.

I enter a blank CD-R into my DVD/CD recorder drive. I go to Roxio Music Disc Creator, and then I add my WAV files to my project. Then I select Burn. After I choose Burn, the first attachment and second attachment appear. If I select the OK button, my PC acts like it is burning a CD, but it doesn't. It just produces the third attachment (what appears to be an image). Now if I go back and hit burn again, unclick "Save Disc Image File," it totally erases the OK button which is what I need to click on to start the burning process (see attachment 4).

I have tried saving the disc image file, bringing up a new instance of Roxio Music Disc Creator, and then adding the project and tried to burn it to a CD-R, and I run into the same set of problems. I am completely lost. Please assist. What's driving me crazy is that I can create Mp3 Discs, but I cannot create WAV discs. Again, the files I am adding to the project are WAV files from my PC. The Project Type is Audio CD. Thanks.Capture2.JPG.72d72b01fbcc89d6d1da9670c04288b6.JPGCapture1.JPG.b5ea25be9dd065ad561210a2488abb32.JPGCapture2.JPG.72d72b01fbcc89d6d1da9670c04288b6.JPGCapture3.JPG.0f6255771b48fca75abe7eb2abcbb798.JPGCapture4.JPG.b37a3020fb9e9ca84761e80d8897080e.JPG

How do you plan to play the cd with wav files?  Cd players are not designed to play wav files so you would have to use another device.

c2d files are audio disc image.  You'll need to burn that image file using another program (Burn disc image).

In your first pic I don't see any optical drives listed above "Save Disc Image file". You should see your drive(s) listed so you can choose which one to use. If you don't see one listed then your only choice will be to save an image and then burn that to a disc. The question is why don't you see them.

You said you can burn Data and MP3 discs. The process should be the same The first pop up box you get should be the one letting you select drives or an image. So you're getting that box when doing the other burns,correct? If so then Roxio is seeing the drives.

Your installation could be corrupted. If you are getting the drive selection screen on the other methods of burns then maybe you should try an uninstall and reinstall.

P.s.-I am using NXT6 but MDC hasn't really changed.I was able to burn .wav files to an audio cd just fine.

 

Another thought.You should be able to use Roxio to burn the image. You have to get out of Music Disc Creator and go to Data discs (probably) and choose Burn Disc Image. You should be able to create the disc that way also.

Again I'm using NXT6 so the location of the Image burn could differ.I can't remember back to NXT2

I don't understand. For years I have taken mp3 files of a concert (stored on my PC), converted them to WAV files so that I can put them into the Roxio "Create Music CD Project" program so that I can close the gap between the files so there is no pause between the songs, burned the CD, and it plays on my car stereo, my home CD player and my computer. Same thing if I open "Create Music CD Project," and then save different songs from the CD's as WAV files to the project. At the end I put a new CD-R into my burner, hit the burn button, and create a music CD that can play anywhere. When you add audio tracks into a CD project, you are given various options (WAV, mp3 good quality, iPod AAC good quality). I prefer burning audio CD's with WAV files because they give the best sound quality.  However, as I have indicated above, for some odd reason, Roxio has stopped doing this. It won't allow me to burn an audio CD unless I have "Save disc image file" clicked.  I think I have corrupt software, as a person mentioned above. I probably need to stop upgrading online and by the newest version and have it mailed to me so I can install and reinstall on CD as needed.

This didn't work either. It generated this error message. I think I have some sort of corrupted version of Roxio. However, I was able to do all that I described before, so if things are corrupted, it didn't happen during installation. I probably need to buy the new version (since mine is apparently so old now) and make sure to get a CD so that I can reinstall if necessary. Then completely uninstall this old version of Roxio from my PC and install the newest version.

I didn't say yours was old just that we had different versions.

I take it you have the Roxio program disc.If so the first thing to try is to insert the disc and when the box pops up asking what you want to do click Repair. Let it do it's thing and see how it responds afterwards.If that doesn't work then we'll think some more on this.
