    i want to write to a cd that i burnt awhile ago but did not close. i opened up nero and selected muiltisession. it game me some wacky error saying that i didn't burn the cd as a multisession cd so i couldn't do it. how do i write to the cd??

    this may seem like a silly question but i hate making coasters and this is my last cd.

    thanks for your help

    I may be wrong, but I believe that if you did not use the multisession mode to burn the cd the first time, you will not be able to use it (multisession) now to add to the cd - even though you did not close it!

    i have never played around with multisession burning before. cds are cheap, so i would just burn it no matter what size it was. a friend suggested i try multisession burning becaused it pissed him off that i would burn a 10mb cd and leave all that empty space unused.

    anyways it worked. i ended up using nero instead of the built in xp app(never used it, don't trust it). just clicked continue multisession. don't know what i did before, but it worked find now.

    learn somethin' new every day eh


    Edit: why can't i spell god....WHY?

    oDin - for future reference. I normally start with a "new cd", select Start Mulitsession disk and then select New. Do my burning and then the next time I want to add to it, I pop in the cd, select Continue Multisession and it will read the cd and list all that is on it and ask if you want to continue - or something like that - it's been awhile!

    Then you add your new info/data/whatever and burn it!

    I am sure there are more folks here who know more about NERO than I do that will be glad to help "learn more about it".

    ;)

    BTW - there is a new version of NERO - 5.5.10.7 I think it is!

    if ya didnt burn it multisession ya cant add multisession to it its closed done and finished...what ya can do is start a new cd project in nero make sure ya set it to multi session and add all the files from that cd to the new one (not to mention the new files ya wanna add ) and then burn it and you will be able to add more data to it later using multi session

    are you sure???....when i first burnt the cd a month ago or so. i know of a fact that i had the no mulitsession button selected. i never 'closed' the cd. then i wrote it. all i did now was select continue multisession drag the file in. a warning popped up saying something how this wasn't a nero multisession cd blah blah blah. it worked. at least now i know how to do it properly.....


    thanks for the help guys!
