Burn baby burn!

what burn method should i use for a MP3 CD?

Postby msuiter on Fri Jul 11, 2003 11:40 am

since my company decided to not allow MP3 or other audio files on our computers, i'm going to burn MP3 discs to take to work. i'm going to use CD-RW discs so i can add/delete files frequently. which method would you use?

1. use UDF and InCD

2. use Nero and multi-session

do you have any better suggestions? when doing a multi-session with a CD-RW, will deleted files actually be deleted? one advantage of using Nero is you can tell how much time is remaining as you add files.

Nero multisession will use a RW disc exactly the same way that it uses a CDR, nothing is actually deleted in terms of re-gaining space. I'd use the multisession.

If you have a DVD burner, be even better if the company has DVD ROM drives.

I can recommend not using a CD at all.

My company locked us down on a few computers (locked the case cover) so we can't even insert a floppy.

But the back of the computer is still accesible...

so I use my Digital Camera's 128mb storage card to transfer files to & from work via the USB ports.

Nobody ever suspects you're up to no good with the camera. Just take a few pictures of the co-wrokers & boss. Don't try and hide the camera...

Well I would recommend multi-session but in your case you would do better with InCD. To be honest with you I don't like much InCD but with multi-session you won't gain back the space used by the deleted mp3. Actually you could use some software like isobuster to recover the deleted file in a multi-session. Your other option is to make a new cd from scratch every time you would like to delete a mp3. Good luck!

thanks for the suggestions. i might just use nero and save the project. that way, if i add/delete files, i can just erase the cd and reburn.

my computer uses SMS to scan computers for the mp3 files. they are actually all legal - i just hate bringing a bunch of cds to work with me.

I agree with Spazmogen, almost. I take things back and forth with a USB flash/jump/pen/keychain drive. Works just like a floppy or CD-RW - put new songs on every night. I just bought a 128Mb'er for $30. That will hold plenty MP3s.

SMS = systems management server. they can use it to install software on computers, see what's installed, and even snoop around remotely.
