    CD Burn hangs mid track - help!

    Lighting UK and DBminter Thank you! Problem solved! So I tried as Lightning suggested to unplug the drive to see what happens. As you predicted, I got a bunch of error messages and could close Imgburn. So the problem was with the I/O. I tried a different cable, no joy. But then I tried another different cable into a different USB port.. and it worked! I had been using a Type c cable into a USB 3.1 port (data transfer should have been faster). So to change it up I used a (normal) type a cable into a USB 3.0 port and it worked with no problems. I am stupidly pleased about solving this as the fact that I couldn't do a really basic thing like burn a cd with a few mp3s on it had been really bothering me! Thanks again so much. Without the help from this forum I wouldn't have been able to solve the problem and would have probably just ended up buying another drive. You've saved me ~£50. Thanks so much.

    CD Burn hangs mid track - help!

    Hi, I am burning a custom created CUE file created with Imgburn from a bunch of high bit rate (320kbps) mp3s I bought recently online. I was having the same problem with a bunch of FLAC music tracks I bought. I thought the problem might be the conversion from FLAC so I bought the same track as an mp3 as I assumed the mp3 to cd audio conversion was easier than FLAC to cd audio conversion. However, the problem persisted. I am a bit of a noob when it comes to burning cds and different audio formats. What format or file type should I convert my mp3s/FLACs into pre burn to try and get rid of the problem? Also, any suggestions for a piece of reliable freeware to do the conversion? If the conversion to a different file type doesn't work I will try a different drive... Thanks again for all the help. I will grab a couple of CD-RW to stop wasting CD-Rs. Good tip!

    CD Burn hangs mid track - help!

    Okay, So , the problem wasn't my cheapo CMC magnetics disks. I bought a load of Verbatim AZO CD-Rs and tried to burn this audio cd again with the better quality media. Exactly the same thing happened and it froze in exactly the same place on the 3rd track. Any idea what it could be? Log below; I 15:43:36 ImgBurn Version 2.5.8.0 started!

    CD Burn hangs mid track - help!

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have ordered some Verbatim AZO CD-Rs and will have another go when they are delivered. I didn't realise I was using cheap Media. The Philips branded CD-Rs I was using were not cheap and Philips are a well known brand. I mean, they invented the CD didn't they?! Thanks for educating me regarding blank CD-Rs. So are almost all the CD-Rs made by the same company? Is there a difference between all the HP, Philips, Maxell, TDK discs out there or is it just branding?
  5. Hi, I am trying to burn some audio CDs of mp3s that I own. I keep on getting the same problem which is repeatable on different burning software (WindowsMediaPlayer, CDBurnerXP) and different tracks. I create the cue file and start the burn with no problems. Then part way through a track the drive stops spinning and nothing happens apart from the counter going up. I can't then abort the burn. Imgburn just does nothing. I can still use other programs on the computer but to close Imgburn I have to restart the computer and disconnect the DVD drive. What's the problem here? I know it's not specific to Imgburn but I would love a pointer to be able to sort the problem and burn the cds. Any help greatly appreciated!
