Music Disc Burning (All Files Not Accessible)

Question

Multiple .wav files on CD shortened with the Edit Audio slider bars to fit 79 minute 58 seconds on 800 MB CDR disc. Burns less than short of the full track list and only 68 minutes shown on the CD player. Same thing happens with Roxio 2009. Tried editing merging tracks to reduce number of files in the directory and removing raw data excluded from the final burn BTW, other projects with larger file numbers have been successful to the full final size and run time with the same brand media and burn speeds. The product doesn't seem to recognise a problem and the final truncated disc is still playable

Are you really trying to burn to an 800 MB disc? The standard sizes are 650MB [74 mins] or 700 MB [80 mins]. Larges discs can suffer compatibility problems in both recorders and players./

 

Are you aware that the nominal 74 or 80 minutes includes both the audio tracks you provide, and the gaps between the tracks?

If tracks plus gaps total more than the available space the results can vary greatly.

 

If "other projects with larger file numbers have been successful to the full final size and run time with the same brand media and burn speeds" then you should tell us the difference between this project and the other successful projects. More details are needed.

Neither of the Roxio Suites that you mentioned, supports burning to 800 MB CDs. If you got it to work sometimes, count your blessings, and move on to the proper CDs.

My error. 700 MB CDR. Transition gaps are all set at the default "0.0". Functionally missing ~100 Mb on the disk (larger than the expected 20 Mb needed to close a UDF session on the RW burner. This situation is new: other music disc projects written with the same gaps are fine.

Did you look to see if one or more of those music files are the wrong format or otherwise corrupted?

Good thought but all are .wav and original source files play fine. If Roxio is corruptng them and having a directory problem, don't know. Did convert some files to mono which kept the project lengthy the same. This did allow another title to be accessable. Why is Roxio asking for only a burn disk when it doesn't seem to recognize an error?
