Burning a Disc-at-Once CD
After you’ve created tracks in a disc-at-once CD project, you’re ready to burn your disc. If you want to burn multiple copies, the application will prompt you to burn another copy after each disc is completed.
From the Tools menu, choose Burn Disc-at-Once Audio CD. The Burn Disc-at-Once Audio CD dialog is displayed.
From the Drive drop-down list, choose the CD drive that you want to use to burn your CD.
From the Speed drop-down list, choose the speed at which you want to burn. Max will use your drive’s fastest possible speed; decrease the setting to prevent the possibility of buffer underruns.
Select the Buffer underrun protection check box if your CD recorder supports buffer underrun protection. Buffer underrun protection allows a CD recorder to stop and resume burning.
Buffer underrun protection can create a disc that can be played in CD players but may contain a bit error where burning stopped and restarted. Consider clearing this check box when creating a premaster disc.
Choose a radio button in the Burn mode box:
Begins recording audio to your CD immediately.
Test first, then burn CDs
Performs a test to determine whether your files can be written to the CD recorder without encountering buffer underruns. No audio is recorded to the CD during the test, and recording begins after the test if it is successful.
Test only (do not burn CDs)
Performs a test to determine whether your files can be written to the CD recorder without encountering buffer underruns. No audio is recorded to the CD.
Select the Render temporary image before burning check box if you want to render your CD project to a temporary file before recording. Prerendering can prevent buffer underruns if you have a complex project that cannot be rendered and burned in real time.
The rendered temporary file will remain until you modify your project or exit the application. If an image file exists when you open the Burn Disc-at-Once Audio CD dialog, the check box is displayed as Use existing rendered temporary image.
Select the Automatically erase rewritable discs check box if you’re burning to rewritable media and want to erase the disc before burning.
Select the Eject when done check box if you want to eject the CD automatically when burning has completed.
Select the Write CD Text check box if you want to write CD Text data to your CD. In order to display CD Text, your CD player must support CD Text. The following information will be written:
Name/Title box in the CD Information window.
Artist box in the CD Information window.
Title column in the Track List window.
Artist column in the Track List window.
In order to burn valid CD Text, you must specify a title for the disc and for each track on the disc (artist information is optional). If the Name/Title box in the CD Information or Track List window is left blank, a warning will be displayed before burning so you can choose to write the disc without CD Text or cancel burning and add title
information as needed.
You can write a maximum of 5000 characters as CD Text.
Click OK to start burning.
