Simple question...

I was just wondering if I can add more MP3's onto a CD-R without overwriting the MP3's that I already have on the CD?

Hm, that's a really interesting question... but I think when it's cd-r the computer "finalizes" the disk so it can't be written to again, but if it's cd-rw you should be able to.

Gyro is correct.
Once a CD-R has been written to, and finalized, it can no longer be written to.
A CD-RW can be written to, erased, and written to many times, but some players don't seem to recognize CD-RW's.

If you were the creator of the original CD,and did not "close" the CD, most applications will allow for "multiple sessions" so that you can add files. You will not be able to erase or modify existing files, since these are protected by the very process of burning to the R-CD.
