    It is ONLY WMP that can't see a new media when inserted AFTER WMP is started. If the media is inserted before WMP is started, it will make the burn-list fit to the acutally CD-size, in my case 80 minutes. But when I want to burn CD 2 from the Burn List, I have to close WMP, put the 2nd CD-media in, start WMP and then it can burn it.

    IMG Burn can burn over and over and over again without the need for being shut down between burns, so my guess is, that it is a setting somewhere in Windows or in WMP that I have wrong.

    That is absolutely correct! So keeping the total time to 74 minutes is not a bad idea. Some older Drives can read "Overburned" CDs and DVDs, but not a lot. Lite-OIns were the first to offer overburning ability, but they are cheap devices.

    You can use UltraISO to squish a whole bunch mroe Data into a 700MB CD, I have a few ISO images that were somehow able to have almost a Gig of data on a 700mb disk. Dont ask me why they work but they do.

    Have you downloaded the Updates for WMP from Windows update, if any? If your WMP is messed up, you would have to remove it from "Features", reboot, then re-add it.

    It's under "Media Features". Also, do you have any special WMP Plugins, that you paid for? If so you may want to remove those and try again, if you can reinstall them later.

    If you can't get WMP to BURN the 80 minute CD, then maybe you can make a Bin+Cue image and burn it with IMGBURN, you would not be able to make an ISO image of any Audio CD, it has to be Bin+Cue- That's how I store some of my albums, I'll make Bin Cues where the ausio is one big 320 MP3 file, the Bin File then assembles the tracks as it is burning and the MP3 is converted to Audio Data.
    By "audio CD" I meant the disc type to burn in CDBurnerXP. Not the physical disc. If you select "data disc" then it just burns the audio files as files with no conversion. Yeah that "audio" disc thing was supposed to add to the artists' royalties or something . Nothing to do with the technical properties of the CD as far as I know. Maybe if there are published musicians here they can testify if they ever got the royalties.

    I doubt it, since I have 3 records out and never saw once CENT in royalties, and I know they sold well. Vinyl AND CD Releases.


    Actually, the concept of "Audio Disk" came about because of the Data Structure of an Audio CD, which is called Redbook Audio. Redbook Audio creates a File System that includes all Audio Modes from 44.1 KHz/16 bit all the way down to 8 kHz/4 Bits- Mono AND Stereo files. This is so that the Audio from the CD would be compatible with say, Players that had a Single Speaker.

    Back in the days of Windows 98, you could download "CDFS.vxd" which would allow you to see the actual Data structure of an Audio CD, which is quite different than a Data disk. But there was an actual CDFS.sys file that was altered to show the actual root filesystem of a CD.

    This guy here is actually looking for it:

    WANTED! Original MS internal cdfs.sys Windows XP for show Audio CDA as wav files in the file structure - Leecher Mods -

    The Disk is indexed by Bitrate from 44.1 down to 8, each Bitrate folder is split into 16, 8 and 4, and each 16.8 and 4 bit folder is split into Mono and Stereo. Inside of the Mono and Stereo folders reside the WAV files for each song at that particular Bitrate. You could even extract them by copying them with Explorer.
