    Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    Hi, I have downloaded some music files and converted them to wav then compressed them. I burnt 1 of them on a CD with Nero and when I tried to burn the rest Nero insist that my CD is full. I have wasted so many CDs this way. I barely have anything on them and I can't add another thing. Is this a problem with Nero or do I have to configure it another way? I've tried doing the same thing with Windows Media Player and even with XP Windows Explorer. Could it be that I have a bad batch of CDs? I'm not alone with this problem and I thought Woody's Lounge would be my savior. Thanks in advance.

    If you are using CD-R and having Nero close the disc you are out of luck. You should be able to have it not close the disk so you can add to it later.

    Make sure the box circled in red is unchecked as shown in the graphic. This will keep the disk from being closed and allow additions later. -Ray

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    Thanks RDASHNER1 for the help. I know now that this is my problem but I have version Nero Express 5.5.10 OEM and I cannot find the window you're showing me which is called Burn Compilation. As you can see with the following graphic, I do have extended settings and the option "Finalize Disc" but I cannot access it to uncheck it because its grey. Can you tell me how to do this? Thanks again, appreciate your help.

    The "Disc-at-Once" setting always finalizes the disc, so the check box is ticked and disabled. If you select one of the other options from the 'Write Method' dropdown, the check box should become enabled.

    Hi HansV, I checked out what you suggested and I only have 2 options. Here is the second option and the Finalized is still grey as you can see. What now?

    I don't have Nero myself, so I don't know what the available options should be. Hopefully another Lounger with Nero can help you.

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    When you kick up nero express, do you get the screen below and if you do, what happens when you click on the nero button on the bottom? This should take you over to the full blown version. Highlight the "Audio cd" icon at the left then click OK. In the right pane navigate to the location of your mp3 or wave files and drag them to the left panel. When you click the burn icon, (shows the disc and a match) the screen I posted before appears.

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    I got thinking about burning audio in steps and I'm not sure if it can be done sucessfully. I've never tried. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> Usually I collect a number of files to burn all at once to fill a disk. In the help for Nero concerning the write dialog box appears the following:
    Click on the Write CD button or select the Write CD command from the File menu to open the write dialog box. This option is only available when the compilation window is selected, as can be seen from the fact that the title bar is blue. If the File Browser is selected (and the title bar of the compilation window is therefore grayed) the option is not available and CD writing cannot be started. In this case click anywhere in the compilation window.
    The 'Write CD' dialog box now opens - it is the same as when creating a new compilation but the Burn tab is now in front.
    Important: Do not deactivate the 'Disc-at-once' checkbox. If the checkbox is not active the CD will be written in the 'Track-at-once' mode which may result in hiss and crackle between tracks.
    Click the Burn button to start the burning process. All the selected steps now run in sequence until writing is complete. etc. etc. etc.

    I'll give it a try and see if the cd's will burn sucessfully and with clarity - Ray

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    I burned two songs on a disk with the "finalize cd" un-checked. Closed nero and removed the disk. I then reopened nero and inserted the disk and selected the audio icon and clicked new. I dragged two more songs to the left window and clicked the burn button. The write dialog opened and I clicked the burn button. I got the warning shown below.

    I pressed the continue button and the program burned the two songs successfully. All four songs play great on my computer using I-tunes and Musicmatch. There is no noise between tracks due to the "track at once setting" as per the warning in the help file. However, when I try to play the disk on my home cd player, it plays the first two tunes great and doesn't see the second set and the cd player advances to the next cd in the player.

    I guess if you want to play the disks on the computer you would be ok but if you want to play the disk on a home cd player or portable, it will only recognize the first session. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    Hi, first of all I have to apologize I only have Nero version 5.5.10.56 OEM and not version 6. To answer your question when I click on Nero button on the bottom all I get is the following screen and when I click on o.k. NOTHING!

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    Hi Ray, because I don't use Nero 6 I don't have the Compilation window. I appreciated what your trying to tell me. I've copied many times files and audio files but it seems that I cannot use the same CD to keep adding to it. I'm sure the problem is because of the "Finalize" option that I cannot access since it is all grey as I explained before.

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    Hi, I think I found my answer. In first screen of Nero, instead of using burn music If I use burn data I can add music files later and it all works. Hope this helps with anybody that is having the same problem. I have another question though, I have a friend that has the same version as I do and sometimes when she adds files to her CD, Nero erases what was previously burnt on her CD. Would you have any help on that?

    Re: Nero 6 (Windows XP)

    Unless you REALLY need to use the large Nero Burning ROM program, use Nero Express. When you burn a "Data CD" the "multi-session" option should be checked by default. This will allow you to add files later. Now, the "trick" to adding files is to insert your previously burned CD into the drive first, THEN open Nero Express. The previously burned files will be read and appear in the window but greyed out. You can then add more files to the CD and the files already on the disc won't be deleted.
