Does EMC 9 have this feature?

Question

Hello there...I'm contemplating purchasing Easy Media Creator 9, but before I do, I want to know if they changed the mp3 disc-making feature so that you can add mp3 files later to a multi-session CD. In EMC 8, it appeared that you could not make a multi-session disc, and if you burned an mp3 CD, you couldn't add more mp3s to it later. Is this still the case? I tend to add mp3s as I acquire them, and thus need to be able to make multi-session CDs.

 

Thanks

I'm not sure if this is somethjng that will help with an answer, but I tried making an MP3 disc using EMC 8 deluxe and using "Jukebox Disc" under the Audio listings. After I added several MP3 audio files I got the following screen that might help:

YES! This is the screen I'm referring to. Is there a different way I should be making mp3 CDs, or is this the only way, by going to the Jukebox Disc utility? Deweywright, is there a different way you make them?

 

Thank you, Redwagon, for that picture...that was exactly the thing I was trying to get at.

I was referring to making an mp3 CD. I just remember making an mp3 CD using EMC 8, then going back in to try to add more mp3s to it, and not being able to. Maybe I just didn't explore it enough or something.

In EMC 8 (and 9) when you go to start writing the disc, you have to make sure the box that says "Read Only Disc" is unchecked, otherwise the disc is closed and indeed, you can't add more files. I'll guess that's the problem.

It depends on if you're actually making an MP3 CD, or if you're making an Audio CD from MP3 files. An MP3 CD is a Data CD full of MP3 files, and you could make multi-session MP3 CDs in EMC 8. If you're making an Audio CD (playable in any Audio CD player) then you still cannot make a multi-session Audio CD. An Audio CD players will only see the first session of a multi-session audio CD anyway, so the whole concept of a multi-session Audio CD is pretty much useless, which is why it was dropped. If you were only playing the disc on a PC, then it would usually see all the sessions, but a standalone CD player will only see the first session.

 

If you're referring to the ability to write an Audio CD in Track-At-Once mode, and leave the session open to add files later, that hasn't returned in EMC 9, you'll need to have all the files available to start with when you make your Audio CD.

 

So, which type of disc are you creating, MP3, or Audio?
