I was watching a television show late last night via my DirecTV account. The show I was watching has previously been recorded on my DVR and at the time two other shows were recording. When the show I was watching was over I attempted to delete it which it appeared to do but then it locked up one of the shows I was currently recording. Once locked up I was unable to use my DirecTV HD DVR HR21-700 remote to do anything. I waited for about 15 minutes to make sure it wasn’t recover since I had never had one of my DirecTV HD receivers do this before. After waiting that initial time period I decided to go ahead and reboot the receiver which I did by unplugging the power, waiting 15 seconds, and then watching it reboot through its normal cycle. The receiver appeared to be starting as it typically does until it got to the last two steps and after a couple seconds at the final step 1 of 2 the receiver got a blue screen with the message “A problem has been detected in the storage device” message as shown below.

When attempting to burn a CD with iTunes you may receive the below error.

ERROR: The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error occured (-50)

If you do receive this error check and make sure that the playlist isn’t longer than the amount of room on the CD. In my case I noticed this error and one of the songs had an odd problem that made it show over 780 hours in the playlist however when playing the actual song it was only 3 minutes long.

Removing the song from the playlist you are attempting to burn and then starting the burn process again you should be able to burn the CD without issue.
