Burning CDs

Postby Dog_none on Sun Dec 11, 2005 7:24 pm

I figure this is as good a place as any for this question.

How do you burn a CD so that there is no pause in between tracks? I've just been using Windows Media Player to burn the .wav files, and although the tracks sound great, there's always a short pause when the tracks change. It's usually tolerable, but it's especially annoying on the ProjeKcts shows, when the tracks often blend together (the skip between Ghost I and Seizure is painful).

Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing? Does using Nero to burn the tracks straight from the FLACS make any difference? Is this just something I have to live with?

I don't know much about much, but I know with Nero, once the tracks are "ready to burn", you right click on each track and go to properties. You can then eliminate the pause between tracks (just set pause to zero).
There's probably an easier way, but I'm slowwwww.

Hey, wait.

Since we're on the subject, I bought and downloaded a Queen show from Queenonline a few months back. They say you can only burn it to disc using Windows Media Player. That's fine, but every time I've tried, my WMP says the record speed is too high (although I've gone all the way down to 1X) OR I'm using the wrong brand of CD-R's (I've tried 6 different kinds). So I paid for a show I can't have.

That's been my dilemma.

Make sure the disc is burnt as "Disc at Once" (DAO).

Whoops! I don't think you have that option in WMP. Sorry, I didn't read your post properly. I use Nero and would recommend that software.

Where and how do I get that option?

What's your understanding of the difference between "Track at Once" and "Disc at Once"? I've experimented with WMP, Musicmatch, Roxio, and iTunes for burning audio CDs. So far I've had the most consistent success burning MP3s to CD with iTunes, which surprised me. But I've never been clear on the difference between track and disc in terms of what the burning software does.

It's a description of how the disc is written physically. With "Disc at Once", the laser burns a single track on the disc. With "Track at Once" the laser burns a track, stops, then burns another track, etc. and this causes a 2-second gap between audio tracks. With "Disc at Once", all the tracks run into each other unless you specify you want a gap between them.
