I have the ImgBurn program and I also have CD-RW disks which are rewriteable, I thought that after I burned something to the disk that did not fill it, that I could add more files later but when I try to, the program says it has to erase the disk in order to proceed, is there a way to do this with ImgBurn.

Thanks

Unfortunately Imgburn does not allow you to add files to a disk. You have to erase the Disk and start again with all the files. You need to go to another burning program if you want that option. I was kind of disappointed when I found this out.

In order to be able to add more data to a CD disk after burning it... you have to decline the "Finalize" feature. When a disk is "Finalized", that means no further data can be written to it.

As far as I know Imgburn does not support mult-session unless that has changed.

Have a look at CDBurnerXP: https://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

 

CDBurnerXP Burn Options: https://cdburnerxp.se/help/References/burnoptions

 

Freeware.

Thank you saw101, that looks like what I want and free is even better.

 

Well I downloaded CDBurnerXP and just tried it out, it worked like a charm, was able to add more files with no problems.

You're welcome & glad you're happy with it. Not a bad little program for free.

 

Best wishes!

It's interesting that this thread is showing no views? a glitch perhaps.

This topic was originally in XP and was moved here to All Other Applications.

When a topic is moved it's normal behavior for 0 views to show in the forum it was originally in. If you look at it listed in All Other Applications you will see the number of views.

I suspect you saw it in Windows XP and when you clicked the link to read the topic you were automatically directed to this forum because the topic had been moved here.

Go to a forum, such as XP. Scroll through the page index. Look for arrows pointing left next to a topic title. The arrow indicates a moved topic. Then look over to the right and notice the number of views for the moved topics.
