What does this error mean: "Too much songs"?
The problem is that you have selected too many songs and the total size is over the free disk space on the CD-R. Please reduce some songs in your song list and try again.

My CDRW disc will not play in our home or car stereo system - What's up?
Not all players get along with all brands of CD-R/RW media. You will need to find a combination of recorder, media, and player that get along. Sometimes the CD player will have no problem playing the tracks, but will have a great deal of difficulty seeking between tracks or moving fast-forward. Using a different brand of media or a different CD player may produce better results. Some media work better at 1x, 2x, or 4x speeds. You may find that slowing down or speeding up the recorder helps. We found "KODAK Gold ULTIMA" CD-R disc to be very good for making CDs.

Why did my CD-R eject between the "test" and "write" passes?
The problem is that the recording speed is too high. You should try lowering the recording speed to 1x.

I have entered the registration code, but I can still record only 4 songs - Why?
Perhaps you have entered a wrong registration code.You can solve this problem by re-enter the registration code. Please input the code into the reg code box in a SINGLE line when you meet the registration window.
