Burning audio cd with Sonic

Question

Why isn't there an option to leave the disc open when I want to burn an audio disc? The disc is not full and i would like to add more songs later. This version of Sonic came with my new HP Pavilion laptop I got 2 weeks ago.

 

Thanks in advance.

because you are creating an audio disc. If you can find a software that can create an audio CD and leave the disc open to allow you to add more songs, please let me know because I don't know any.

Actually Nero does! I have it and add more songs all the time. If I'm not mistaken, the older versions of Roxio did the same too. I just might have to uninstall Sonic.

when you create an audio CD with the disc open, most CD players cannot read them... in Sonic case, you can create a Jukebox CD... for audio CD, it must be closed in order to be played on most CD players...

What is a jukebox CD?

 

I know that most CD players can't play an open audio cd - which is fine, but I would like the option the leave my disc open. I'm not gonna make a disc with just 5 songs on it because that just wasted space.

Yes, earlier versions of ECDC gave you the option to leave an audio session open, but that was in the days when a 504MB drive was HUUUGE (!) and there wasn't the room to spare. They don't do it now.

 

If you haven't got an odd corner on a hard drive where you can stash up to 700MB of music while you're waiting for enough to fill a CD, I suggest you spend a dollar and get a rewriteable CD for your 'interim' music.

It's similar to a data disc in that it has the ability to put different formats of audio (wav, mp3, wma, etc) on a single disc and the idea is that if played back on a computer or compatible player, the software or player will read the information put on the disc by the software, which can be thought of as a playlist, and play the tracks back in the correct order you established. Basically, it's a fancy data disc that is exclusively for audio.
