CANNOT BURN CD's

Post by Zzaj » Sun Sep 02, 2018 2:59 pm

New laptop, with Windows 10, same external HD I've been using for 5 years; downloaded MM Gold and added my license key in... now, when I attempt to rip a CD, it "goes through all the motions", but no files go onto the CD.

HELP - I really, REALLY need to be able to rip CD's.

Thanks!

Can you play the files you're trying to burn?

Yes, they appear to play fine... in examining the error message more closely, it appears that there's some kind of problem with the TEMP folder; I tried a suggestion about changing the temp folder, and placed it directly under c: drive, but it still comes up with an error saying that it's unable to delete the TEMP file... any other suggestions?

That indicates that the Windows User MediaMonkey is run as doesn't have sufficient rights on the folder. This is something set in Explorer.

Well, I also tried right-clicking on MM and using RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR... shouldn't that take care of that problem?

Do you know of any articles that explain how to fix this in Explorer? I've tried making myself the owner of the temp file, but as soon as track 1 completes, it gives an error that indicates that MM cannot delete the .wav file it creates in the temp directory, then stops! ANYTHING you can provide would be greatly appreciated
