Only able to burn one audio file

  Tiscali 10:50 22 Nov 2003

When I try to burn several audio files it manages one then the burn process aborts and the CD is ejected. It is OK when burning data CDs. I am using Nero 5 0 would different CD burning software be more successful?

It was installed with a DVD drive too - I have tried it after removing the DVD drive but this hasn't made any difference.

The CD writer is an Acer 24x10x 40x CRW 2410A with seamless link and meets the minimum spec for the PC. The PC is a socket 7 240MHz, with 128Mb RAM and a 6Gb HDD running WinSE. The CD writer system requirements are: 200MHz or above CPU; 64Mb or above RAM; Windows 95/98/Me/2000 or NT.

The CD writer is set as the slave on hard drive cable. Would setting the CD writer as the master on the second IDE port fix this problem?

Has anyone got any ideas?

I can only suggest checking the Nero site to see if you've got the latest version of 5.0 click here HTH TR

Thanks, but although that page says it's the Nero downloads page, there aren't any files available to download! Nowhere does my cursor change to a 'hand' over any of the files.

The CD or DVD-ROM drive should be the Slave and the rewriter the Master.

Are you Adding each music file to your compilation?

You'll have to look under Previous Versions to find earlier Nero software updates on the ahead website.

Copy and paste this into the address bar and remove the space after http:// and click Go.

ps.if your burning the cd as a music cd then nero will close it afterwards,even though its only one cannot add anymore to the disc.

if just wanting to play the disc in the computer,burn it as an iso/multisession disc and keep adding the tracks untill its full.this will not play on a home cd player though.

if burning a music disc to play in the car or home cd player you will have to select all your tracks at once.and burn as music above the disc is closed afterwards.

Sorry I'm late getting back to you, being a World Champion at something isn't the norm and deserves to be celebrated. There should be a "download it" box underneath and to the right. I suspect huggy71 has hit the nail on the head though. HTH TR
