How Do I Set Overburn

Question

Can someone plase tell me how to set the overburn on Creator 2010 Pro. I follow the (No)Help menu and go to advance settings and there are no options to change in the advance settings. Selection from help menu below. In fact I cannot seem to find the HOME OPTIONS at all because the "Enable audio disc information download" is not there either. I messed about with this for hours today.

 

 

Home options

Click the Options button to open the Options window. Use the Home panel to customize the following settings for projects that are built into Roxio Home:

 

Enable animations: Select this option to display smoother transitions between some program functions.

 

 

Display relevant product information and offers from Roxio: Select this option to display product information from Roxio.

 

Enable Online category: The Online project category can be turned on or off using this checkbox.

 

Prompt to save projects when exiting application: Many projects built into Roxio Home can be saved. When this checkbox is selected, you will be notified of any unsaved projects before the application closes.

 

Check for updates at start of application: Roxio periodically offers free software updates to improve performance and correct problems. Select this checkbox to check for updates each time you start the application.

Home options — CD Lookup panel

 

Enable audio disc information download: Select this option to gather song information over the Internet. This information includes song titles, artist name, album name, genre, and other information.

 

Access the Internet using a proxy server: Select this option if you want to specify a proxy server to use to access the Internet. Type the Address and Port you want to use, just as you would for your browser.

 

Home options — Advanced panel

Use the Advanced panel to customize the following settings:

 

Disable system autorun: The Windows autorun feature can be an annoyance. Select this option to disable autorun when using this application.

 

Overburn by (sectors): Overburn is a technique some CD recorder manufacturers use to squeeze a bit more data onto a CD-R disc. Set the desired amount to be overburned by typing the number into the Overburn by (sectors) text box.

I didn't know it was still there. :blink: Overburn for Roxio was only a few sectors so it was practically worthless.

 

EDIT: I looked an it is not longer there. The help files need to be edited. Overburn was the cause of many burner failures and probably Roxio didn't want to chance it.

 

Just to be sure, you posted in a forum for Creator 2010. Is that what you really have?

Thanks for the reply. I am in the right forum. I found it pretty useful on things just a bit to long. I can still overburn in the Create Music Project bit so why not with the main section of the program.

 

They make things more complex and they always turn out worse to use.

You have to click on the Music Tab and then Create Music Project. The screen that opens allows you to create various types of music projects. I tried to make the same CD from within that area and right before it started burning it gave me a notification that there was more music than would fit on the CD; it asked if I would like to overburn. (Man, they sure hid that option pretty well)

How much of an overburn could you get? I'm surprised it was there. Are you using Creator 2010 or something else?

 

Csution if it is really there, overburning may damage your burner. I would not chance it !

:wacko: It won't happen in C2010 Roxio Music Disc Creator, Audio CD Prioject!

 

You can burn a data CD to a larger than 700mb CD but that's not the meaning of overburn..
