The message "An error occurred while attempting to burn '[Title name].' Error detail: Unable to burn track. StarBurn_. . ." usually occurs because of an issue with your burn settings. There are several ways to try resolving this error.

Note: Sometimes the CD itself is causing the trouble, so you may want to try using a different brand of recordable CD.

First, try changing the burn speed

  1. Open OverDrive for Windows.
  2. Select the title you want to burn, then click Burn.
  3. Insert a blank CD and click Next.
  4. Click Options and select a slower burn speed.
  5. Try burning the title again.

Next, make sure your CD burner drivers are up to date

If you're still getting the "StarBurn" error, make sure the drivers for your CD burner are up to date. You can do this by checking the website of the CD drive manufacturer to see if a driver update is available.

Still having trouble? Try burning the CD with Windows Media Player

Note: We recommend using the latest version of Windows Media Player when following these steps.

  1. On your computer, go to Documents\My Media\MP3 Audiobooks\[title of audiobook].
  2. Right-click the MP3 file and select Add to Windows Media Player List.
  3. Stop playback of the audiobook (if it starts playing).
  4. In Windows Media Player's "Library" view, click the Burn tab in the upper right-hand corner,
  5. Click Import 'Unsaved list.' Make sure that the audiobook you'd like to burn is the only item on the list.
    For Windows Media Player 11, select Burn Now Playing.
  6. Put a blank CD into your burner. If a program or pop-up window opens, close it.
  7. Click Start Burn.
