Preferred Solution: Burning Audio CDs

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Burning Audio CDs

Turn off InCD, and see if that makes a difference, or try a different cd writing program. If that doesn't work, the drive is probably going bad and will have to be replaced

Ok, i'm new to this CD Burning. I have Nero Express, and i'm having a little problem with it.

I've copied an Audio CD to a CD-R, and it plays fine, but there are still space on it, and i wanted to put a MP3 (it converts to CDA really nice also) together with the already burned tracks, but i can't. Everytime i put the same CD, i get the folloqing message:

"This midia cannot be recorded
Please Insert another midia."

(Sorry if it's not right, cuz i translated from portuguese)

Can i do what i want?? How??

Sorry if it is hard to understand, it is hard to explain.

Thank you
 

A:Audio CD Burning with Nero Burning Rom

You cannot append any audio files to an disc that has been completed. Once a disc is completed it cannot access the remaining space. Especially with Nero Express. Once a disc is burned it is "closed (finalized)."

This is just a simple explanation.

I believe Roxio's Easy cd creator lets you add files to your disc as long as you don't "finalize" it. Until you finalize it you will not be able to listen to the music.

Hello!

I want to create compilation Audio CD's to play on a regular stereo system & on an in-car CD player.

I use NTI 2000 Professional.

I do not want to burn a whole CD at once; I want to be able to add more tracks at a later date.

However, I still want to be able to play the unfinished CD on the regular CD players, that is, to listen to all the tracks already created.

Can this be done with NTI 2000 Professional & if so, what software settings do I use when burning tracks?

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Best wishes.
 

A:Burning Audio CD's

Tim
I do not think there is a way to play non closed cd's on a convetional player or for that matter on cdrom's. To make matters worse if you burn to a cdrw disk some players do not read those correctly.
Hope someone else has other ideas.

Please help me as I cannot burn any audio. My OS is XP. The programme used for the burn is "Record Now" but thats irrelevant because I now cannot use any other burn programme ie. Nero or Windows Media Player. What happens is that it starts converting and when the time comes for the burn it proceeds to 5% and then closes the disk. I replaced the drive (thinking it was a drive problem) still the problem persisted. I then did a full scrub of master and slave HDD thinking it was a virus. This fixed the problem short term. Three months later the problem arises again. Before I do a full scrub again, I wanted to know whether anybody else has run accross this problem. For extra information I can still burn DVD with full audio, pictures any other documentation just not audio. and for those who think its a licencing problem, there are no licenses on the music I am burning, just band stuff.

For some unknown reason, after I burn some CD's, many at first sound great; but, after a while, they mysteriously develop unwanted and annoying crackles and pops in playback, almost as an old vinyl recording. Many are like that immediately, and some never do it at all. To explain further, it's almost like a scratch in a record. Is there a reason for this? And, if so, can it be prevented.

Hi there - I burned an Audio CD for the first time in years, and noticed when inserted into a CD player, it just reads the tracks as "track 1" there is no actual data of the album name, artist or track name.

How do I burn a CD, with all the data, so it can be read by a CD player?

Depending on the application that you are using it should give the option to copy titles. What application are you using?

Tech-support of a particular cd player I am using recommends I burn all my cds at 8x. WMP unfortunately does not use numbers in burning speeds but the terms slow-medium-fast-fastest. Can anyone please tell me which one is equivalent to 8x? I cannot use my Power2go because 10x is its minimum so I am stuck with WMP.

Thanks in advance for all assistance.

A:burning audio cd

The burner drive's available burn speeds will determine what speeds to burn, not WMP or any other burning program. All that program does is allow you to select an available burn speed.

I have a recording studio and do a lot audio CD burning. I use 8X as my "standard" so the CD's will play in almost all audio CD players. Above 8X and some will not play the CD or will skip.

Almost all SATA CD/DVD burners will only go down to 8X (there is one LG model that will go to 8X but that's all I've found). I have a bank of 5 PATA (IDE) interface drives (USB connected) and they will burn at 8X. I use Nero Burning ROM. The free CDBurnerXP will allow you to select an actual available burning speed if you don't want to buy Nero. Roxio will allow you to select a speed too but I abandoned Roxio due to all the buggy problems they have had over the years.

A:Burning Audio onto DVD

Yes you can burn them in a DVD disc as long as you have a DVD burner drive, appropriate burning software that support DVD burning. If you will use the DVD on your DVD player that will depend on what file type your player supports.

I want to burn music CDs that can play on my CD Player. Just wanted to ask if the player can play the songs if I just put them normally onto the CD, like you do with normal files, so about 300 songs can fit on one CD. Or do I HAVE to use the audio CD option, which counts by the audio length, and can only fit around 16.

I use Nero 6 Ultra to burning audio CD's. Lately, I have been having a problem when burning mp3 audio. It seems to burn fine but some cd's I burned will not play on a cd player or car stereo. I have tried cd-r and cd-rw media but it seems not to make a difference.
Is there another type of mp3 format i can use?
 

A:Audio cd burning

Are you sure that you are burning audio CDs from the MP3 files and not creating Data CDs with MP3 files on them? Most older home and car CD players will only play Audio CDs and not recognize any kind of Data CDs. Some newer players may be able to play MP3 files from Data CDs.

Real old players may have problems with burned Audio CDs.

Hey,all. This is my first thread after joining this forum. Just to let u all know that this forum has been such a great help to me. Thank you tech maestros out there who shared your knowledge.

However, i have this problem that I don't think anyone has ever posted. I am using Nero burning ROM version 6.3.1.15. Nero Start Smart 1.0.1.18. i am using a Samsung combo Drive CDRW/DVD SM-352N 52x24x52x16x. I used a blank Imation CD-R to burn about 20 songs using Nero. The songs are in mp3 format and I believe Nero converts them to audio files because i chose the option >> make audio cd.

After burning the CD, I played it on my PC.It works fine with winamp and Windows Media Player. But when i play it on my discman, it skips. I could only listen to the first 4 songs and the rest was screwed up. Anyone who has a solution or who wants to share their same problem, just reply. Thanks in advance for the help.

A:Cd Burning: Audio

Hi Izzy,

I just had this happen to me a couple weeks ago, I use Nero 6 , and after the big update day, I was going about my business, messing around with my media library, and I kept getting the same error.

It seems to me like that error comes from using the wrong format for the program opperation, or that the output path for the file is in use.

Anyway, after a half of an hour, I got mad, and reinstalled it......problem solved, in my case anyway. I use the K-Lite Codec Pack, and although I love it's universal quallities, for some reason, it's the buggiest program I use, and find myself reinstalling it once a week or so.

Although, it also could just be something as simple as two programs stepping on eachothers toes, maybe you have another media player that shares the target .extension, and there is a conflict, I think that is my problem, the only thing is, I have to many media players with odd settings to mess up.

Hope this helps,

nos

Hi Guys and Gals, I'm a new guy here so please be patient.
Like many others I seem to have an Audio CD burning issue.
I have a new HP g6 laptop with windows 8 and wish to create audio cd' of my old cassette tapes, I can create the CD having extracted the files I want using Audacity Software, The created CD runs fine on this laptop and even my very old Contessa PC Windows 98 OS but they will not run on my HIFi / Music Center. I have used Windows Media Player, Cyberlink and Torch to no avail. tried burning at slowest speed, still no luck.
(Running low on discs now)
The CD's are the same as I used on XP and on '98 which used the Sonic RecordNow burner and the CD's created all work on any CD player.

A:Audio CD burning ?

Read other 14 answers
RELEVANCY SCORE 44.4

Was trying to make an Audio CD of MP3's,
15 tracks totalled 180mb;However, the running
time was 78mins, and thus no more tracks fit.
So there is a 80min not 700mb limit on Audio CDs.

I converted from WAV to MP3 for the purpose of fitting
50 songs on a CD. Apparently, in audio burn mode, it is
not the file sizes but the running time that matters.
Thus, I could've set to 8kb/s low quality, but the running
time remains, and so I cant fit 3 studio CDs unto 1 CD.

Ifcourse, I could play my MP3&WAV CDs in the PC, or in the DVD player,
but the CD player doesnt play WAVs. Then whats the point of
burning MP3's on Audio CD's?

I have read all the current burning cd problems hoping my problem would surface, but it did not show. I installed a Data Becker audio disk and have been burning mp3 audio disks successfully. But have hit a problem; when I load the burn catalog and click the burn key the screen says preparing to burn but nothing happens. The screen freezes and I cant get out of the program: have to turn off the power. Anybody familiar with Data Becker? Please help

Can you burn Kazza audio files onto a cd. If so how do you do it? I am not sure how and would like to know. I want to be able to listen to the files on my cd player. Thanks for the help.
 

A:Kazza audio burning ?

Welcome to TSG.

Audio files usually download as MP3 files which are compressed. Any modern CD writing program will convert them to CDA wave files that entertainment players will play. Select “audio” for the type of recording and drag the MP3 files into the record box. When you select record they will be decompressed and recorded.

Hi,
Does any have any experience with burning CD's so that they display the name of the song on the burned CD. I use NERO and Musicmatch, I am so frustrated at this point I am not sure I even want to contnue to use the programs anymore.

They burn OK, only I have two issues that if you can help me with I would appreciate it. First, I have backed up some songs onto a Data CD because I can fit more on the disk. Now I want to pull them offer to make an audio CD. I guess the procedure would be that I could copy the tune to my hard drive and then burn them from there. But when I go to burn them in NERO/MM will they convert them to a 128 bit audio format?
Second, this is the one that burns me, is it possible to make a compilation CD from the above data CD with the names of the tracks for each song displayed on the burned disk. I have made 3 coasters, because I can't get the programs to write the name of the song onto the burned CD. It comes out with 'Track1, Track2 etc.' no names? Is it possible?
Did I describe this well enough?

Any help will be appreciated!

I've recently bought a new laptop. It's an ASUS x54c. I have a bunch of videos on my external hard drive that I'm trying to burn to DVDs. I've used the Windows DVD Maker and also I've used Nero 7, which I've used both on my old computer and they both have worked fine, but both programs on this computer burn the video with no audio. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I've tried updating the drivers, and I've tried also using an external DVD drive. In fact, the last time I tried it using Nero 7, I clicked on the preview button, before burning the disc, and the preview doesn't even have sound.

Don't know where else to post this... so I do it here

Does anyone know a decent CD burner, that burns tracks correctly? I'm looking for one that lets tracks flow over without notice. Windows Media Player and iTunes don't work, just like Express Burn.

A:Audio Cd Burning Software

What do you mean by flow over? As in, the tracks play nonstop without having to pause in between?
If that's what you mean, there's not much your CD burning software can do, it's more about hardware. It's your CD player that plays the disc. After 1 track finishes, it has to pause a bit before reading and playing the next track.
So far I don't really know of any CD player that can read the next track before the previous finishes.

If you really don't want the pause, you can just manually edit the music and join into one big music track.

Not sure if this the right spot to post this but here goes anyways.

I tried burning a an .AVI file to a DVD-R using "Cheetah DVD Burner" I've wasted two DVD-R's because both times there's no audio on the DVD-R.

The video plays fine but both times there was no audio. the first DVD-R I played on several different mediums such as an XBox a standard DVD player and a laptop.

The second DVD-R I downloaded several Audio and video codecs (that were recommended by "Cheetah DVD Burner".) then proceeded to burn a second time but still the same result video works but no audio.

Hey, I am running windows xp on an athlon 2500 system with 480mb ram...for a few months now I have been running into problems every time I try to burn an audio cd. It used to work fine, but now it gives me an error, no explanation or anything, it just says burning failed (happens at around 5% or so). I have tried with Nero, Windows Media Player and MusicMatch but none of them work anymore. The really confusing part (for me at least) is I can still burn cd's in other formats without any problem at all. For the audio cd's, I've tried burning at every speed possible...I have freed up lots of disk space, defragmented all my drives, run scandisk, uninstalled and reinstalled all of my burner related software, checked for viruses, etc...everything I can think of but still no luck. Oh yeah, and my burner is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-106D...my whole computer is only a year old and I have had no previous problems until a few months ago when this one started.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...this is driving me insane, abd I have wasted countless cd's testing to see if it works again (which reminds me, I also run simulation mode every time I try it, and it always works fine with no error, but the actual burn messes up).

Thanks

Can someone please confirm (or otherwise) that if I just want to copy some mp3's and wma's that are on my hard-drive onto a cd for back-up purposes (and not to play on another cd player) I can just do it via a data cd and don't have to do an audio cd. I have done this and can play it back via Winamp or WMP from the D drive so I think this is OK.

Also have done the same with my image files (photographs) which seem to be accessible via the D drive and then got a bit confused reading Nero's help file about creating image files etc.

Why would one need to create an image file via Nero just to copy some graphic files onto a cd for backup purposes?
 

A:cd burning - data v audio

Graphics files and mp3 files are just data files.

Audio relates to .wav or .cda files when you intend playing them on a normal stereo. In that case tell Nero to make an Audio CD and it will convert the files anyway.

Hi all, I have a weird problem for audio CDs...

Almost half of the burning fails before the end and the other half has skipping song all over the CDs.

I have 3 CD burners in my computer (DVD-RW, CD-RW and DVD-Rom/CD-RW combo) and all three do this. I used Nero and iTunes, same problems with both.

So I tought it was the cheapo blank CDs (50 for 15bucks) but I bought some Maxell today and still the same error.

I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction on this on, I'm don't burn audio CD's that much.

I converted my computer into a makeshift recording studio and decided to burn a few mini-cd's I had laying around. When I play a track I recorded into my computer back it sounds perfectly fine. But, after I burn it to a mini-cd and played it on a cd player is sounds bit distorted, especally when the volume is turned up.

Can anybody know of any good books or websites that cover CD recording or have any ideas as what's going on?

I have some audio books on 12 different cds I'd like to boil down to one. I can convert those cds to just under 700mbs. However when I go to burn it in nero as an audio cd, for every 80 minutes it wants me to put in a new blank cd. I really want to get them all to just one cd and I fail to see why less then 700mb can't fit on a 700mb audio cd. Does anyone know how I can do this?
For a bit more back ground I have tested to see if my conversion of the bigger wave files to the smaller one works on my cars cd player and it does. I have also noticed verry littel of the space for the data on the bottom of the cd has been used.

For some reason i can not get mp3's to burn at there set quality (usually 320k) to cd at it's set quality. Ill burn a cd and check it with winrip or realplayer and its always plays at 144100 (or 140k). For some reason it will not burn anywhere near cd quality or the set quality.

Could anyone suggest any programs that will burn at 320k or more for mp3 to a audio cd?

Ive searched the net and i still haven't found one.

It seems that all programs only burn to cd 140k or lower, which greatly dimishes the cd to about half the mp3's true quality.

A:Problem of Burning an Audio CD using WMP

I looked at the options available for WMP but it doesn't make sense. I do a lot of Audio CD burning as I have a recording studio but I use Nero.

There are a couple of other free CD burning programs, CDburnerXP is one. Click Me Imgburn is anoher one that's popular HERE

When I burn audio CD's, I burn at a slow speed (I use 8X as my audio CD Burning speed standard) so they will play in most Audio CD players (CD's burned at high speed may not play or skip). I also burn "Disk at Once" which allows adding text (titles) to the CD's.

I know this doesn't fix your problem with WMP, but it does give you some options.

I've been burning audio cds for quite some time without ever having a problem. the various programs that I have used are record now, windows media player and winamp.

in the past few days, whenever I insert a blank cd my disc drive the automatic windows prompt asking me what I'd like to do with the disc (the bulk of the questions asking what program I would like to burn a cd with) does not appear.

whenever I try to burn a cd in any of the above programs it asks me to insert a blank cd into the drive. it will never recognize one of the blank discs.

when accessing the properties of the blank cd through my computer it says that it has 0 bytes free, 0 bytes used. these are from a new pack of memorex cdr's.

if it's of any relevance, the cd-burner drive is from a third party company and installed after the original cd burner crapped out. I installed it almost a year ago.

any help/insight would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know of a burning software that I can burn MP3 albums to disc without it placing the files in alphabetical order? Basically I want the tracks to stay in track listing order. It's driving me mental as I have tried around 15 different burning software programs.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

A:MP3 Audio Burning Question

How are the songs named? If it has song title before track number, then you have to manually sort them, either in the program or drag them in one at a time, if you are burning an audio cd.

If you are burning a data cd with a bunch of mp3's, then there is nothing you can do if the track number is after the song title or there is no track number in the file name. You will have to manually add or move the track number in the file name.

Example,
Album title.song title.track number.mp3. This will sort alphabetically by song title.

Album title.track number.song title.mp3. This will sort them by track number
