How many songs can I put on an audio CD?
You are limited to 74 minutes of audio per recorded audio CD. If you have an 80 minute blank CD-R, you can record up to 80 minutes if your CD recorder drive supports it.
To burn an 80 minute CD with MP3 CD Burner, make sure that your CD-recorder supports 80 minute audio CDs. Not all CD-recorders support 80 minute CDRs! If you are not sure, consult your CD Recorder's documentation or visit the manufacturer's website for help. Select "Destination CD Format _ Length" from the "CD Session" menu. Click on the "80 minute audio CD' option. IMPORTANT: You must put an 80 minute CDR in the drive. Some CD Recorders only record up to 78 minutes 30 seconds. When you find out how much audio your recorder supports, make sure to not go over the limit or your burn may fail and you may end up with an unusable CD.
How do I remove 'cdburner.com' from the CD-TEXT title of a burnt disc?
It can't be removed from a previously burnt disc. But here's how you can set the title. The title is derived from what you save your MP3 CD Burner session as. So before you burn, save the CD session by selecting "Save" from the "File" menu. If you save it as "my tunes.cbs" it will then use "my tunes" as the title of your CD. (If the session is not saved, it sets the title to 'www.cdburner.com' . This will be changed in a future version. )
*CD writer must be compatible with CD-Text and Burn-Proof technologies to utilize these features.
My mix CD does not fade between tracks!
If you've created a mix CD where the tracks fade into each other but its not playing correctly, make sure you don't have the shuffle feature turned on on your audio CD player!
When I search for songs it always comes up with no matches. Is there anything that can be done?
It seems as though you are misunderstanding the "Search" feature of the software. It does not search the internet for music, it *only* searches your computer's hard drive(s). The main reason being the copyright issues of downloading music.
Out of hard disk space? Here's how to free up space.
Start "Disk Cleanup" by clicking Start, pointing to Programs, pointing to Accessories, pointing to System Tools, and then clicking Disk Cleanup. If you don't have "Disk Cleanup", you may need to add it via the Add/Remove Control panel in your "Settings".
You may also need to manually drag some files to the "Recycle Bin". Don't forget to right click on the Recycle Bin and select "Empty Recycle Bin"
Finally, you may be able to uninstall programs you don't use often, especially games, which are notorious for taking up a lot of space.
My burner is on the Supported Recorder list, but it still isn't recognized! I'm running Windows XP, what can I do?
First try to install "ASPI" drivers within Acoustica MP3 CD Burner by clicking "File" > "Preferences" and make sure "Acoustica ASPI" has a check mark beside it. If that does not work, try getting the latest updates for Windows XP as it may add support for your burner. Other customers in the past have done so and it has fixed the issue!
Otherwise, the ASPI layer on your system may not be functioning properly. Uninstall all versions of MP3 CD Burner and restart your computer. We recommend trying the new ASPI 4.7 drivers which work on all systems, including Win2000 _ WinXP!
1. Go to Adaptec's page
2. Download and install aspi_v470.exe.
3. It will extract a file called "ASPIINST.EXE" into a temporary folder. Find and double click "ASPIINST.EXE" to install the 4.70 drivers.
4. Restart your computer
5. Reinstall MP3 CD Burner: On the 3rd screen of the installer, make sure that the "ASPI Drivers option" is unchecked! (Do not install the optional ASPI drivers in this case.)
6. Re-run MP3 CD Burner to see if it recognizes the recorder.
