I also get that error all the time. From my own research, I found out that error 4450 is not new to Apple. This error is code created within iTunes as a safe guard for music transfer. Any time iTunes senses your music being moved from the iTunes library to an external disc other than your system main HDD or a CD burner this error is designed to activate and prevent that action. The reason behind it is; iTunes does not know where and why you are transferring the music and how you intend to use that music.
With all the politics of music piracy and the bureaucracy behind who owns what rights in terms of music transfer, Apple safeguard what consumers download and with every content downloaded from iTunes are layers upon layers of massive security codes which overlay the music/video file itself. We will all keep on getting this code 4450 for a long time to come.
Also the only way error 4450 will allow you to transfer your music to another place other than your hard drive is if you intend to move the music file/video file to an i pod/i phone or other mp3 recognized by i tunes.
Today, if you try to use itunes to burn music in most cases the itunes software may let you burn one or two discs then lock your burner and cancel any further music transfer and send you the error 4450.
There is nothing wrong with your burner or your system.
hope this helps
