I notice the price for the discontinued iPod photo 40 and 60 has dropped off the chart.  Apple, Amazon, everyone is selling them for around 25% or more off the original price, new in the box.

When I try to burn a CD the process gets cancelled in the middle, and a message says “an unknown error occurred (4310)”.  What does this mean?

dmbloome: I was getting the same error message

“The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error occurred (4310)”

I looked that error code up:

Windows System Error Codes (exit codes)
Date Updated 02/27/2005
Versions affected Automize 4.x+
OS affected Windows
Description The Command and WinCommand task sometimes do not return any error messages, when your batch files fail.  These task return error codes, which do not mean much to the user. The table below describes these Error codes
Causes Windows does not return error messages all the time.

Code Description
0 The operation completed successfully.
1 Incorrect function.
2 The system cannot find the file specified.
3 The system cannot find the path specified.
4 The system cannot open the file.
5 Access is denied.
4310 The media identifier does not represent a valid cleaner

Solution: Try a clean CD (buy new ones) as they can get old. If it still doesn’t work, uninstall iTunes and redownload it from Apple (). You can linke up all your old music files (.m4a files), they’re not deleted. Just find them, highlight the folders, and drag them to the “Library” on iTunes after installing the new iTunes.

Hope this helps
