Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I get an error 4280 when I attempt to burn an audio cd

\015 I own a dell PC that is about 4 years old. My cd burner is an NEC DVD+RW ND-2100AD. I continually get an error 4280 when attempt to burn a CD from a playlist on ITunes. I am using a Sony CD-R audio CD. I have tried to used a slow burn speed. Didn't work. I have tried more than one playlist with the same result. It gives me the message, Writing the title for the firdt song of the playlist, then is says, Cancelling the burn. Then a box comes up showing an error 4280... I did check to ensure I am running the latest version of ITunes..Any suggestion??\015

Answers :

I too was getting this error. I have a Dell PC. I changed speed to 16x, as suggested and it appears to be writing now.
Apparently a common error; if you google error 4280 you'll get several different versions of what is happening. Some blame the Sony CD's other blame Dell, HP, etc...like I said there is a long list so I didn't want to pick out just one, it depends on your Computer type, combined with the CDs..so go ahead and take a look. Personally from reading some of the fixes I came up with; don't use Sony disc and run at 16x to get rid of the error. Hope this helps..
