however, with the cd extra, what files can be added? from what i can see, there's 2 folders "cdplus" and "pictures". can mp3s or videos be put in these folders? does it matter which folder they are in? is it necessary to have folders? (sorry for all these questions)
I don't know. I do it manually and don't use those folders.
Maybe the correct way is putting the MP3 files outside of those folders (in the root directory), because those folders have their own purpose.
Nero's help explains that those folders are needed to create a compliant CD-Extra:
[i]"11. Once you have selected your settings, click the New button on the right. You will now see the corresponding compilation window for CD. The lower audio section is empty and in the upper data area you can see two folders â€“ 'CDPLUS' and 'PICTURES'. These folders and the files in them are needed to create a CD EXTRA and cannot be changed. "
"4. The Pictures button opens a dialog box where you can select two pictures to be saved on the front and back of the CD. You can also specify the color format for the encoding resolution for all of the pictures that will be written to the CD."[/i]
I have lots of programs in my computer, and don't have any problem. Packet writing programs are the most dangerous (I don't use them).
