CD burning

Codder's Vista thread reminded me I wanted to ask....

Do any of you know of or, better still, have experience of a simple CD burning program that does not interfere in any way with the data stream being burned. I want to burn music from a site which provides original recorded masters. I'm aware that some programs allow the turning off of WMA, MP3, extended track breaks etc. but it's always a pain and I'm sometimes not sure I've caught and disabled all of the options.

Ta.

Not entirely sure what your trying to burn.

Are you provided with an ISO file of the CD or individual tracks as MP3/WMA/WAV etc?

Nero will do what you want either way.

Thanks for that, Richard. I don't know about the 'writable CD folder' but my version of media player just invokes whatever burning software is installed on the machine. It doesn't appear to be burning software in its own right.

I do have burning software but I would like a straightforward bit copier to take files directly from the hard drive to CD without any interference.

You don't need any extra software with Windows XP.

Unless the software you have installed interrupts this process as well!

Thanks Richard. I read the link. No one like Mircrosoft to make an easy task complicated. I just format a RW CD as UDF and drag my files across. Just like the good old days with floppies.

My main machine runs Win2k but my laptop has XP, I tend not to use it for intensive tasks because it's relativley slow.

Maybe I'm trying to make something simple into something complicated too. I'll experiment with my music files on XP.

I can see the discs flying into the bucket now.

I have looked at all my old archive discs (quite a few) and have not found the program yet (little bugger must be hiding somewhere).
I have found a few other ones that may do the job, although they are not too basic.

What format is the original file in and what format are you burning ?

Also I have found http://forums.afterdawn.com/ very good, and it has a audio section in the forums.

There is also http://club.cdfreaks.com/ , but I have not looked at the forums there much.
