By terichardson ·
when recording cd's, I am having trouble trying to put songs from a cd and songs downloaded to the harddrive on the same cd. would like to hear any tips for making this happen without the cd stopping the recording in the middle.

What is your burning software of choice? Are you using Easy CD creator? Combining tracks from MP3 downloads or other sources as well as from a Original Music CD can be tricky. I am assuming this what you are trying to do from your above question.Organization is the key. First off, if your dealing with MP3's, you are eventually going to need to convert them over to WAV files to become a regular music CD, and the Songs from the Music CDs need to be extracted from that CD to be combined on the hard drive for another burn session. My best suggestion is to head over to any favorite software download site like download.com or Cnet, and get yourself a shareware or freeware utility that can Do conversions both ways for you. MP3 TO WAV, and TRACKS to WAV type conversion. All other things set aside, you just need to organize them as you see fit. Good Luck!

As mentioned in Paul's answer, you must be sure that all tracks you are burning on a CD are the same format so you don't mix MP3 and WAV format tracks on one CD (which will be unplayable on a CD player).

But from the wording of your question, it sounds like you have a CD burner and a separate CD player in your computer and are trying to burn a CD using both the hard drive and the CD player as your sources.

In order to burn reliably you should first copy all tracks to your hard drive and then burn from the hard drive. Unless you have a "burn proof" CD burner, the data flow to the CD burner must be uninterrupted. Otherwise you are making a coaster rather than a playable CD.

You don't mention the operating system or processor/RAM you are using and if you have problems burning to a CD if the source is strictly the hard drive. If you are having problems burning CDs in general then you need to look at those factors. If anyone is still using Windows 95 (not OSR2 version), I can tell you from personal experience that it was definitely not ready for audio.
