Cd's & DVD's

by K9er / February 1, 2009 12:08 AM PST

Hi All,
What procedure must I use to put more than one item on either a cd or dvd? Example: I put a file on the cd -dvd and I want to add another item but the cd-dvd won't allow me to add additional items, finalized? How do I do this?

Let's say I'm using CDBURNERXP.

1. I'm using CDRW or DVDRW media.
2. I create a folder on my desktop called files.
3. I copy my files from the CD/DVD to the folder files.
4. I add more files to the folder files.
5. I run CDBURNERXP then click on the erase CD/DVD, ok it and wait.
6. I add my files from my folder files and then click on the burn button.

Allows you to finalize or not. If you finalize a -R disk, it's done. If you don't finalize it you can continue to add until it's full.

XP does not give you this option, it always finalizes. All other third party burners do.
