  1. I have not encountered the following problem with CDBurnerXP previously. You published an update since the last time I used it in the Summer of 2018, when it did not have this problem. Now, (November 2018) when I choose to create an audio disc and then scroll down through my music library on my hard drive to add files, when I click on "Burn" and the program starts preparing each track to burn to disc, it will stop at a seemingly random point down the list of songs and state that it cannot burn the remaining songs to disc. I went into your troubleshooting pages and the closest thing I could find is when trying to burn variable bit rate (VBR) tracks to disc, according to you, the program cannot compute how many songs will fit on a disc because it doesn't know how many might be fixed rate and how many might be variable. This was on a troubleshooting page from 2008 (??). NONE of the tracks downloaded to my PC are VBR tracks. They are either mp3 or wma tracks, and I rip CDs to my hard drive using Windows Media Audio Lossless format to get every bit of data off the CD, which makes the file size and kbps larger, but not variable. Each track has a fixed bit rate, no matter what. I even created a new list to burn to disc that included the tracks previously rejected by CDBurnerXP and, the next time, the program burned those tracks to disc, demonstrating that it's not my tracks, but your software, that has bugs. The ONLY fix I've been able to find so far is to go to your website and redownload the program each time this error occurs, even if I have the latest version. However, even when I do that, after 3 or maybe 4 discs are burned, CDBurnerXP goes back to rejecting tracks within my selected compilation. If I keep trying with new selections without reinstalling CDBurnerXP yet again, it then rejects ALL of the tracks and refuses to burn anything to disc. I can only guess that reinstalling the software clears out some cache of data stored somewhere that somehow interprets previously-burned tracks as VBR ones, so it tells the software to start rejecting new tracks when the "Burn" button is clicked on and the software goes to start preparing songs for burning, BEFORE it gets to actually burning the disc. Please publish an update to CDBurnerXP that eradicates this problem. Thank you.
  2. The option to employ "volume leveling across all tracks" during the burning process needs to be added to the options for the burner. Also, while the song and album titles will display on players that are compatible with that, when opening the burned CD on a computer, the tracks only display as "track 1, track 2, track 3", etc. - i.e., the song titles cannot be seen. CDBurnerXP needs to be updated to burn discs so the song names are visible when viewing the disc's file names. I wanted to burn a mix CD to a CD-RW blank disc so I could then erase it and burn other things later. I selected "Audio Disc" from CDBurnerXP's initial dialogue box, and then added individual tracks from their corresponding folders inside my computer's Music folder once inside the program's compilation window. My music files are in either .mp3 or .wma lossless format. I added some of both, one at a time. CDBurnerXP burned the disc, yet retained the files' original extensions and bit rates. So, upon opening the disc on my PC, the tracks were still mp3's and wma's. Nothing had the .cda tag on it. By design, my car's 2016 Alpine CD player will play .mp3 files with bit rates up to 320 kbps and .wma files with bit rates no larger than 192 kbps (so much for "lossless"). I ripped .wma lossless tracks from my CDs to my computer's hard drive to preserve as much of the original CD tracks as possible so I could then burn my own CDs to play on my home stereo system without compromising fidelity due to hyper-compression. However, my car's CD player will not play the .wma lossless tracks at their much larger bit rate. They are "unsupported" because of it's limitation to 192 kbps .wma tracks. So, to make it so they would play in my car, I was left thinking I would have to go through and compress my .wma files individually if I wanted to burn them to CD. Quite a letdown. Today, I took a look at CDBurnerXP's "Options" to see if there was something in there that would tell the program to add the .cda tag while burning CD's. Nothing. Still, I selected "Audio Disc" again, and added the same tracks as before. I then looked at the "Options" in the CD burner dialogue box once I clicked on "Burn" to see if there was anything there to help. Nothing. I also looked in the Forum, FAQs, and online instructions. Nothing. I let the burner go through with burning the tracks to a CD-RW disc. After it completed, I opened the CD-RW on my computer and, suddenly, all of the tracks now had the .cda tag on them as they should have from the start, and the CD-RW will play in my car's CD player! I have outlined this experience to pass along to the creators of CDBurnerXP that there are things that seem to go wrong, inexplicably, when using the program, the online help is inadequate and needs to be updated and corrected, and nothing in the Forum covers what I've written about here. Please address the concerns with the online instructions, FAQs, and Forum, and update CDBurnerXP to add what I have described here and to correct for software bugs. Thank you.
