The Burn Setup dialog appears after you click the Roxio Burn button to burn from your media library or playlists to disc. After selecting your burn setup options in this dialog, clicking OK starts the burn process. The Burn Setup options are described below.
Choose a format type based on the amount of audio you want the disc to contain and the capabilities of the player that you will use to play the disc.
Normal Audio CD (Redbook):
When this format is selected, your audio is transcoded to standard CD audio format. Choose this format for an audio CD playable in standard audio CD players.
Note: In general, CD-R discs are more compatible and playable on consumer home and car disc players than CD-RW (CD ReWritable) discs. For information about disc compatibility, check the specifications for your home or car disc player.
Audio Data Disc (MP3, WMA, etc.):
Choose this format for a data-based disc containing a copy of your selected audio files.
Note: When burning an audio data disc, your digital audio files are copied to disc without changing the file formats. To ensure compatibility with your audio data disc player, check that the format of the files that you are burning are playable by your audio disc player. Refer to the tracks filename extensions in your media library to determine file format and, if necessary, convert the files to a compatible file format before burning to an audio data disc.
Select the drive letter of the disc burner.
Select a write speed up to the speed capacity of your disc burner and recordable media. Depending on the performance of your computer and the burner, you may need to select a speed lower than the burners maximum speed capacity.
This option is available only with Audio CD (Redbook) format the Disc-at-Once record method. When option is selected, artist, album title, and track title data (based on track tag information associated with the tracks in the AudioCentral Media Library) is written to the disc. CD-Text data can only be displayed with players and disc drives that are CD-Text capable.
Buffer Underrun Protection:
This feature helps prevent buffer underrun failures that may occur due to system performance issues. If your burner supports this option, ensure that this is selected.
These options let you immediately start the recording process, test the record process only (for example, to verify that your settings work in a modified system configuration), or test then record.
- Track-at-Once: In this recording method, each time a track is finished, the recording laser is stopped. This option lets you choose to not finalize the disc, with the intention of recording more tracks to the disc later. Note that discs that are not finalized may not play in some disc players.
- Disc-at-Once:In this recording method, all tracks are recorded to disc without
stopping the recording laser between tracks. If you apply certain transition types in your playlist, this option may be required.
- Set as Default: Click this button to make your current burn setup selections the default settings. The default settings will be retained and displayed in Burn Setup the next time you burn in AudioCentral
