    Without warning and at any time, when I try to burn a playlist from iTunes 4, the burn will stopwith this warning- "Disc burning failed because of a disc failure." It is getting very frustrating. I have changed the permissions, restarted, ran DiskWarrior, everything. Sometimes the burn will complete, but about half the time it fails.

    Re: iTunes- this is getting old

    my advice is to burn the songs straight, and not through iTunes, I have never had a problem, but there are tons of other methonds to burning.

    every once in a while any random company can have a batch of bad blank discs. it really sucks when you are the one who ends up with them. i remember the first time i got a cd burner i bought some imation discs because they were supposed to be the best, but really they sucked so much that i ended up throwing them away and getting verbatims.

    Might I ask what computer you are using?

    I've had the same issue with an iBook, but it was because I was moving the computer while it was trying to burn. I let it sit on a hard surface and it worked just fine.

    i ran into this quite a bit. the only fix for me was to reduce the burn speed.

    It's 4. I downgraded to 3 and am not having any problems whatsoever. Just lucky I didn't convert everything to AAC.
