I just got a CD Burner a few days ago and and need some help with it.
Whenever I try to burn audio onto the disc, a pop up comes up saying that there is not enough disk space to burn the image. I tried several times but sometimes that message comes up and other times the computer saids the burning was sucessful but when I go play it on my CD Player, nothing comes up. Nothing at all.
Is there something wrong with the CD? I got Nero but I am having trouble burning audio onto discs. Am I missing something even though I have downloaded UBS 1.1?
How much are you burning? CDs only hold about 74 minutes of audio (some CDs hold 80 but your burner may not support burning more than 74 minutes - it requires burners capable of overburning).
If you're using MP3s, are you sure the MP3s are clean and not corrupted? Nero sometimes has problems with variable-bitrate (VBR) MP3s as well - make sure they're all constant bitrate MP3s, or save them as WAV files and burn those instead.
a) My guess is that since youre burning audio to a CD-R, youre burning MP3's. Since MP3 data is comressed it cant be written to the disc directly. So the burner needs to decompress the mp3 to wav or some other raw format, and the buening software is probably saving the uncompressed songs locally to minimize the chance of buffer underruns during the burn process. So check how much free space is on the hard disk.
b) Nero rules because if its wacky english name "Nero Burning ROM." It like the program that everyone in Japan loves and uses and some Japanesy guy decided to send it off to a second rate translator who mangled the translation.
Actually the only thing crazy about Nero IS the title... the rest is solid and its never given me any problems. Roxio is too "like oh my god i want to totally burn pictures of my pet fish onto a cd that i can totally send to my great great aunt's cousin's milkman's neighbor's sister's dog's verternarian's illigitimate son's girlsfriend's mother" for me. I like my programs to NOT have slick idiot proof interfaces. Nero has wizards too, but in its "raw" mode its powerful.

Actually, it was made by a German company. But yes, it rocks your ass. Yes, cherv, your ass in particular.
I had to power it down hardway, because this graybeard froze up on me. This is not an uncommon thing though, which is why I'm perplexed. I've had to do that so often that's it's not even a mild frustration anymore.
