Hello!

Is it possible to do this...

I had burned just 2 songs onto a CD when I first learned how to do it. I wanted to add songs to the disk, but, cannot do it. It will not let me. I am using the Windows Media Player. Is there some way to add the songs or completely delete them and start over, or re-format the disc?

Thanks,

diego88

Hi diego88

When you burn a music cd, in order to be played on a standard cd
player, the cd has to be finalized after the burn. This is what is
happening in your case. After a cd is finalized, you cannot add more
songs to the same cd.

You could use a re-writable disc (CD-RW) though.

David :thumbsup:

From Help file:

"You cannot copy additional tracks to the CD after copying is completed. If you are using a CD-RW, you can erase the entire CD before using the Player to copy tracks to the CD again."

Using a regular CD burning application like EZCD Creator or Nero will allow you to copy to the same (non-RW) disk using "multiple sessions."

Regards,
John

Thanks for the help!! How would you erase the disk on a CD-RW, though?

Hi Diego:
  • Open My Computer
  • Right click on your CD recording drive, and click open.
  • In the CD Writing Tasks box on the left click Erase this CD-RW.
  • A Wizard named "Welcome to the CD Writing" will begin.
  • Click next and the erasing of the CD-RW will begin.
  • You will then get a notify of completion, which signifies the CD-RW can be used again.
:thumbsup: Please note that not all CD's can be erased using the process above. Only CD-RW's can.
