I have 682 MP3 files in one folder and need to burn them onto CDRs. I bought Roxio Creator 11 to do this with but have not been successful........am I asking too much of this software? I would like for the software to burn as many discs as needed without having to manually drag and drop each song to make one cd, then repeat this effort? So far no progress.
Anybody got some thoughts or instructions?
Thanks

That is a very simple job for C2011. Since you have not given any details on how you are trying to do your task, it is impossible to tell what you are doing wrong. What program from C2011 are you using to burn?

If you are using Burn Data Disc, put a blank CD in the burner and then add all the 682 mp3 files by selecting them all. The program will then tell you how many CDs you will need.

If you were burning MP3 discs you'd get all of your 683 MP3 files onto 3 or 4 data CDs, and the job would be finished in very short order, so I guess you're not burning MP3 discs.

If you are burning AUDIO CDs, using "Burn Audio CDs" from the Home menu > Music-Audio will limit you to burning one 80-minute audio CD at a time. However using "Create Music Disc Projects" will run Roxio Music Disc Creator [MDC] instead.

With MDC you can select an Audio CD project and then load a heap of MP3s into the project. The software will separate the tracks and tell you how many discs will be needed. You can even drag the tracks around to arrange them on different discs if you want.

Clicking the Burn button  with "Burn all discs" checked will burn your project, one disc after the other.

Is that what you want?

Thanks for replying and yes that is what I'm trying to do(audio cds with tags and song infor on discs with capability of printing jewel case cover listing songs.
I tried 3 times to load all 682 mp3s into a project but at 51% I receive an error messsage saying Roxioi has to close and sends message to Microsoft. I have an older pc running xp professiional with about 1.4 gig of ram. I'm new to this software so I appreciate your information. I do need it to do just as you said, load all files into project, sub divide them into audio discs and allow me to burn a set of cds. NOt sure what I'm doing wrong. I'll try again.
Thanks

Hello John,

Just guessing, I'd say that you ran yourself out of memory and crashed the application.

My older MP3s tend to hold over 12 hours of music in 250 tracks. At that rate 500 tracks will be over 24 hours, and your 682 will run around 32 or 33 hours. It's going to take a lot more than your 1.4 GB of RAM to hold them in memory while you juggle them round and assemble the 25 or so CDs.

I think you will have to 'bite the bullet' and do them in two or three batches, or else get a heap more memory for your machine together with an Operating System which can handle all the memory.

I'm sorry, but you seem to have been snagged by the mathematics.

Regards,
Brendon
