Audio CD Burning


Wylla

Question

Using a Mac G4, OS 10.3.9; Toast 7.1.2 (downloaded upgrade today), CD Spin Dr. 3.1.

 

We're transferring LP's to CD's; no trouble getting the tracks into Spin Dr. Initially we could transfer to Toast and burn the cd, but the cd will not play past track 9 on any device except the computer. The tracks are there, but the three CD players we own do not recognize any track past # 8. We tried two different albums with the same result.

 

Read through the discussion group to see if any help and couldn't find this specific issue, but did read about burn speed. We tried again at a lower speed and began getting the following error message: Drive Reported Error: Sense Key = Illegal RequestSense Code = 0 X 20. Invalid Command Operation Code.

 

Reinstalled Toast and CD spin, same result. Trashed Toast & Spin Dr. p.list, prefs. Downloaded upgrade and still have the same problem but now we can't even get toast to burn the files onto the disc.

 

Thanks for any help you can offer.

There was a Mac that had a Philips CD burner with firmware that can't handle Disc-at-once burning. The result is that any track after 9 was one track. Here are your options.

 

Option A: Choose Track-at-once (TAO) instead of Disc-at-once for burning your audio CDs. You'll see that setting in the Advanced Tab of the Recorder Settings window (which appears when you click the burn button). The down side to this option is that zero-second pauses will still have a slight pause which isn't good for concert CDs.

 

Option B: Remove the drive from your Mac, put it in a PC and update the drive's firmware with a download from Philips support.

 

Option C: Use a different disc-burning drive.

 

 

 

 

Option A worked like a charm! Thank you SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!
