I’m looking for a way to burn audio CDs with PC data after the audio. I know there are ways to do it, but I haven’t been able to find anything satisfactory. Maybe I’ve been looking at the wrong solutions, so I’m asking for advice or hints, I’ll be grateful for any help anyone can give me.
This is what I want to do:
Record WAVs and be able to edit gap length, title and artist name with cd-text. No laser pause (hence no click) between tracks. Audio should be unprotected and readable on a standalone player (i.e. car stereo), data track should be only visible on PC (and unprotected). Player should start normally at track 1 (so no mixed mode) and stop at last track, or skip to next CD. I mean like any closed-session audio-only CD.
Data track should contain whatever PC file I want (PDF, MPEG, EXE), appendable if possible but I can do without that. CD-Plus/Extra should be the solution, but I don’t want those useless folders like “CDPLUS” that Nero and others want to put in the layout. I don’t care about jacket pictures. I want to use any volume name and directory layout I prefer.
That’s all. I’ve tried dozens of burning programs and I haven’t been able to find anything that would simply do this. I’ve been unbelievably frustrated trying to burn multisession audio cds (some worked, some not). But maybe multisession isn’t the answer. So far, I’m stumped. I’m not having any problem – I could go ahead burning mixed mode and skipping track 1 – but it’s not very elegant. I just want to find the right way. Is there any software, or method, that will do this?
Thanks for any help or hint.
