Emc8-audio

Question

I recently upgraded to EMC8 from version 5 and although version 8 looks better, i'ts certainly not easier to use. In version 5 I used to be able to make compilation cd's very easily but with EMC8 I'm having problems. I used to be able to store tracks onto a cd before finalizing it, but for some reason i can't do it with EMC8. Does anyone have a solution for me ?

 

EMC8 has a finalizing option but everytime i try to use it, it tells me that I must use an appendable CD. Am I using the wrong type of CD.

In version 8, audio CD creation has been removed from Creator Classic. You can create a 'data' CD with MP3s on it which may play on some players. To create a standard audio CD, you now use Music Disc Creator or DVD Music Assistant. Both of these work very similiar.

 

To create a 'standard' audio CD that plays everywhere, the disc must be finalized and it defaults that way. You can not add any more songs to a disc that has been finalized. As far as I know, READ ONLY can not be changed in either application so what you want to do is no longer available.

 

You can keep version 7 on the same machine if you absolutely need this feature.

I noticed this too and never really cared since I don't use this but to me, this function should be there. Why even show it greyed out if you can't use it.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to do here.Are you trying to write tracks to a cd,stop and then go back and add some more later?

 

The way to make the disc so that it's readable elsewhere is to go to options and check read only.If you leave it on write only the disc doesn't close

Thanks for your info. I thought I was going crazy. Do you know if can keep Easy Cd Creator 5 on my computer even though 5 doesn't work really well with Windows XP ? And do you know anything about RecordIt Now! software and do you know if does what I was discussing?

 

What is the sense of upgrading if the new software doesn't do what the old software does and do it better?

Is EMC-8 just good for DVD creation and photos?
