CD disc-CD-R 'full' after one track download

  Redlegs 15:55 14 Feb 2005

New at ""burning"" music CDs and cannot find way to prevent CD being declared ""Full"" or similar message after only one track has been recorded, meaning I can't add any more to it.Using ""CD-R"" discs of course(giveaway to friends) ,not ""CD-RW"" Using both/either "Nero" or Windows "Media Player" -- I'm told it has something to do with "finalisation" of the disc, and the SP2 of Win. XP addresses this situation
Grateful for any tips ,Redlegs

When you elect to burn your compilation to CDR you must tell Nero that you want to burn multi sessions - if you have it selected to finalise then you will be unable to burn a second time regardless of whether you burn 1MB or 699MB. Post back if you want chapter and verse how to do this

In the `Final Burn Settings` panel of Nero when you are about to burn the disc, make sure that the box IS ticked next to `allow files to be added later (multisession disc`. It is ok for Data Files including mp3s but I don't think that this is possible when burning a normal music disc to be played on a normal CD player as they are usually finalised..

Hi there 'Wobblymike' , thanks for your , and 'low flyer's' prompt reply. Took your advice on board and when I got to the screen for "Final Burn Settings", I could not access the box 'Allow files to be added later'(it was showing as unticked) as it was not highlighted as an available option , and conversely , the box for 'Finalize Disc' was ticked, but unavailable to be amended. (both boxes were in 'fadeout mode' like unactive commands on 'dropdowns'--Not sure what that occurence is known as. therefore I may need leading by the hand, --- if you care to!! or are music CDs a NoNO !!! ( by the way , Adelaide , South Aust calling !!)

When you open Nero with the New Compilation window you are given the options to start or continue a multisession disk, or no multisession.

The first time you write to a disk, use Start Multisession; subsequently use Continue Multisession on that same disk.

Note that each time you reopen a multisession disk it will use about 10 MByte of space to join the sessions.

Try it again, but make sure it's a new cd-r, i.e. blank, before setting it as multi-session.
