1-I want to copy data to CD disc so I can copy to other computers. Just a single session.

Which is more accurate: "disk at once" or "track at once?" Only a single session. Want disc to be compatible with a variety of IBM-type PCs.

2-Ditto for music files -- I want to create compilations of favority tunes and play on a variety of CD players. What's best: "disk at once" or "track at once?"

3-I have CD Creator V4 (bundled with computer).
I have V 5 (also bundled version). Should I upgrade?

Thanx in advance.

Disk at once - Data. Track at once - Music (to keep the gaps twixt tracks). If CD creator works use it. Upgrade when you install a DVD writer. Cold and miserable here.

Roxio manual (although I am using CD Creator) says to use Disk at Once for Music so it will play in all sorts of CD Players.

Is this true?

One of the main things when you burn a CD is finalize the CD so it can be read in other CD readers

I am referrinmg to the "basic" edition that comes bundled with computers. I have Creator 4 (basic) and I was wondering if there was any advantage to replacingthis with the BASIC version of Creator 5.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

The Bundled editions that come with computers/CDRW's usually only write on the hardware it was supplied with.

The latest version of EC Creator is V5.3.5.10f this is now an 'Old' version,and can be downloaded from Roxio as a trial version.

Creator 5 has more options for Video and DVD writing and covers more CD/DVD writers than Creator 4. The main difference is upgrades to cover newer technology, formats and has also been bug fixed.

The latest version is V6.1.1.17.
