ULEAD BURN.NOW USER GUIDE 37
Disc burning options
Burn.Now features a number of options to determine how your discs are burnt.
Write CD-Text information
Writing CD-Text is allowed if the disc is closed. Enable this option to display artist, title, and language information when your disc is played.
Mirror UDF metadata
Enable this option to record 2 copies of your data structure in physically separated areas on your disc to enhance the readability of your disc.
Enable this option to permit extended file names of up to 64 characters in length, including spaces.
Closing a disc prevents additional data to be written onto the disc after the burning process is finished.
The following guidelines should be followed when deciding whether to close a disc or leave it open:
A data disc can be left open. CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives will be able to read open data discs.
Leave an MP3 disc open to keep adding more MP3 files. CD-ROM drives, MP3 players and CD players that support MP3 playback will be able to play open MP3 discs.
If an Audio CD is left open, it can be appended with data files and used as a data disc as well. An Audio CD that contains both audio tracks and data tracks is known as a CD-Extra disc.
Close an Audio CD when writing CD-Text onto the disc. Closing an Audio CD also makes the disc more compatible with CD players that may not be able to play open discs.
Note: Burn.Now burns a disc in ‘Disc-at-Once’ mode when you close the disc, and ‘Track-at-Once’ mode when the disc is left open.
