I think from what you write that what you want to do is to just "close the session", which would prevent anything from being written to the CD. Depending on what application you are using, the wording may be different, but its HELP file might explain how to do it. If not, please post the burning software's name.

Didn't seem to find that option. I have HP RecordNow. Maybe there is a free software I can download that offers that option too?

Follow the steps below to verify that the multi-session option is not
enabled:

Open RecordNow.
Click on Options button.
Click the Advanced tab.

Make sure a check mark is not placed next to the following option.

I would like to use discs for more than one recording. This option
lets you add data in the future, but fewer drives will be able to read
the disc
...

Once you have finished transferring your data, the session will be automatically closed

There are several free alternative burning applications that have been used by members:
