Need Help With Nero Wave Editor

Windows XP Home, Sp. 3 Nero Wave Editor 10

I am trying to create a multi-track CD. I have done this successfully many times in the past (2 or 3 years ago). But what happens now is that I end up with only one track. Here is my procedure:

Open the starting wav file. Then copy/paste the next file at the end of the first file, leaving a small space. At the beginning of the first file, in the empty space I place the cursor and then Edit/Insert Track Split. The Track 1 indicator then shows up. I repeat this action in between the two files and the Track 2 indicator shows up. Then click “Save” and “Close”.

If I now reopen the file the track indicators do not show up. I don’t remember if they did before or not, but I think they should. How else would one know what had been added to the file??

The I go to the Nero Multimedia Suite 10, select Audio Burning and then add the file just created. The CD burns successfully.

If I open the newly created CD in RealPlayer only one track shows up. If I look at the contents of the CD in Windows Explorer, only one track is there. If I look at previously created CDs all the tracks show in both RealPlayer and Windows Explorer.

I’m obviously overlooking to do something, but can’t remember what. Can you help me?

Download and try Audacity (free) and check some of the online tutorials and try to break up your WAV files with that. I have not looked at Nero in years. Only assistance I can provide is that.

Thanks for the info. I have Audacity but have never used it. I"m familiar with Wave Editor and have always had good results with it, but for some reason this latest problem is bugging me.

Just discovered what I was not doing. Should save the tracks as files and then burn the files to the CD. Just missed a step.

Thanks again.
