Using Multisession or any other technique, Can I, on the same CD-R, burn a video (as a VCD mode I guess), an image as a JPEG , and a piece of MP3 music?

If you want to play the movie in your CD/DVD player, it needs to be burned
as an SVCD, VCD (or video DVD).

If you just burn the mix of files to a CD, you can of course access them on your computer.

Depending on your burning software, you may be able to create enhanced and mixed-mode CDs.

An enhanced CD is a multi-session CD that contains both music tracks and computer data.

The first session on the CD contains the music tracks, so a home or car stereo CD player can play them.

The second session contains data intended for your computerís disc drive.

Many Audio CDs are made as an enhanced CD to provide Audio CD tracks and a music video all on the same CD.

A Mixed-Mode CD is a single-session CD that contains both computer data and music tracks,
Data is written to the first track on the CD followed by one or more music tracks.

petewills and DSTM, thank you for taking your time.
petewills, I have done a VCD and I can watch the video in my DVD Player witout problems. The think is that when I use the Nero App. and I'm burning the VCD, doesn't permit to use the multisession mode as to add later JPEGs or MP3s.
Thank you one more time

No, it's quite usual for the CD to be finalised, preventing further additions. :thumbsup:

That's what I want to put my CD-R on my DVD player and watch the video(VCD), then watch some images(JPEG), and finally to play a song(MP3).
If I burn them separate I mean on 3 different CD-Rs, I can watch all of them, but I have to eject the VCD discs each time I want to watch the images or the music MP3.
My question is if I can have it all in ONE CD-R only and watch ALL on my DVD player on the living room.
Thank you

That's mean I can not do it?

I believe the answer is no, if you want the CD to play automatically.

I have in the past put all sorts of content on a CD and it will be displayed in the disk menu in my DVD player.

Playing MP3s and viewing pictures is possible, but getting, for example, an MPG to run
has not been possible for me. I think it can be done by some players with MPEG 2 support,
but it doesn't work for me.

Someone else may have the answer. :thumbsup:

You will have to investigate the capabilities of your burning program.

For the time being I'll be doing testings with my Nero If I succeed I'll let you know.
I sincerely appreciate your time and your help.

You can.

Each is a different type of file and there is no conflict.

You will need a program to create the VCD file, while the .jpeg and .mp3 are already in final file formats.

You don't have to create the mpeg-1 file in VCD format...you can just create it in .mpeg format. VCD and .mpeg-1 format are the same, the difference lies in the user options available.

You will need a program to create the VCD file,

I'm using Multimedia Nero Suite 10.
Unfortunately in that program when you make a VCD, at the end of the burning process, the disc is closed and there is no way to leave the session open as to add later the images(JPEG) and later the music(MP3)
Thank you Luis
