If you're using Windows XP's built-in burning, the CD is finalized. If you're using a 3rd party program, such as Nero, then you'll need to check the help file for the specific program.

Then I would say you're using 3rd party software such as InCD (Nero) or Direct CD (Roxio). Windows XP does not natively support packet writing to CD-RW media.

Doug, is it the _disc_ that is finalized, or the _session_? And does
it treat CD-R and CD-RW differently?

Third-party burners for CD-R typically suggest finalizing the
_session_ so that a later session can import the earlier one and add
files. I know what I tried to add files to a CD-R the Win XP Wizard
failed (with no useful message) -- now I wonder if perhaps the
Wizard finalizes the _disc_ (on CD-R) and doesn't know how to deal
with a disc from other software that had the session finalized.

I don't know, but using both Nero and inbuilt CD burning does not seem to be
recommended. I never had any trouble adding files to a CD-R or RW created
with the inbuilt burning, so adding files does not imply you're not using
the inbuilt burning.

From http://aumha.org/win5/a/xpcd.htm

" If you install any of these packages, the inbuilt burning software
probably will be disabled, and you should use the associated "mastering"
program instead. If the native software is not disabled automatically, you
should disable it manually. "

If you're using the context menu method, then yes, you're probably using the built-in burning capabilities. However, again, XP finalizes the disc, I believe, whether its CD-R or RW. It does not support multi-session, that I'm aware of.

There was an early issue with XP, where discs might not be readable in other machines. But this was patched back in October 2002.

You can't. To do this, you will need 3rd party software, such as InCD from Nero or Direct CD from Roxio.

You **can ** add files later without 3rd party software. I've done it on
both CD-R and CD-RW. See

You might like to open Windows Help and Support and search for "add
files". The second hit I get is "Add more files to a CD", where it
explains that Windows does this with CD-R and CD-RW.

Either Windows Help is wrong and one can't add files to a CD-R using
native software, or your statement that it finalizes the disc is
wrong.

That is only a small part correct, only in certain circumstances:

You can't *if*
- you close the CD so nothing more can be written to it
- the CD is full.

Other than that you can add things to the CD.

Note that some older drives may not be able to read anything but the first
written session on the disk.

Any chance you could turn off "quoted-printable" in your outgoing

I wasn't going to correct you as I've been correcting too many people lately. This is from the programming docs. Another common misconception I hear here is that it can't burn AudioCD. It can. It's just that the user interface is in Media Player not Explorer.
Remarks
SetActiveDiscRecorder must be called after the media to be used has been inserted, and before calling IJolietDiscMaster::AddData.

Selecting a recorder while in an active Joliet format will cause IMAPI to read information from the currently installed recorder disc. If this disc is a previous IMAPI Joliet disc and has space for another session, IMAPI automatically sets itself to multi-session mode. This disc must be in the active recorder when RecordDisc is called.

The MaxWriteSpeed property is updated when this method is called. The default setting is the highest write speed.

Has anyone experienced the cd-r not playing in their mp3 player? I have
burned music onto a disk and it played. And later added more music to the
same disk, which won't play in the mp3 player... only the first session
plays. On the pc, all media is present on the disk and plays on the pc.
Does anybody know why? and how to fix this? (if fixable.) It's worked b4
where I've burned a cd, then added additional files later w/ no problem in
playing it but for some reason, now any disk I've done only plays the first
session. Help?
