Hey all,

I was just wondering if it is in any way possible to use items that I have put together in a data cd project in a music cd project.  Basically I have a rather large list of files from many different locations, and made one data cd.  Now I would like to create a music cd with the same list of files, but I cannot seem to figure it out.  Dragging and dropping from one project to another, options, even trying to drag files to another folder and then copy them in the same location so at least I won't have to go searching for them again-- nothing works.  Is there any way that this rather simple operation is possible!?

I am using Easy CD Creater v5.3.4.21 SP8

*Pants in frustration*

Thanks,
-Stacy

Are you trying to make a multissession CD that contains both music tracks and computer data?

Nope; I am only trying to make a music cd.  However, I already put together the listing of files as a data cd project.  Is there any way to import this "playlist" into a music cd project rather than searching out each individual file again?

Thanks.

You say you have a "list" of files.

Does this mean you made a layout for a data disc, and burned the layout instead of using the layout to burn the files?

And then got rid of the files?

If so, you've kept the shopping list and gotten rid of the groceries.  :)

No, the files are still on my pc.  I just don't want to go through the trouble of finding them all again, during the process of adding each to a new Music cd project.  What I have is a data cd project layout with the correct music files in it.  I would just like to use this exact same list of files in a music cd project.

Thanks.

Sorry, but there's no provision made to read a saved data project file into a music project.

You haven't said what Operating System you have, but WinXP and Win2K both have 'Search' - click on the Start button or push the Windows key to access it.  I think on older Operating Systems it's called Find but at the moment I'm not at my Win98 SE computer.

Enter the titles one at a time by copying (either Ctrl+C, or right-click > copy) and paste (Eithr Ctrl+V or right-clack > paste).  Then let Windows find the files for you.
