Multi-session CD burning

Can I add more songs to a CD I've already burned?

When you burn your own CD, the multi-session option allows you to burn media files (MP3 or Data) to a disc without finalizing the disc. That means you can then add additional files to the disc at a later time. Note: This is a Premium (RealPlayer Plus) feature.

Burn a Multi-Session CD (MP3 or Data disc)

  1. Follow the steps as detailed in Burning to a CD with RealPlayer, with MP3 or Data selected as the CD type.
  2. When you reach Edit Options, select the option to Create a multi-session disc.
  3. Proceed with the burning as directed. RealPlayer will not finalise the disc.

Finalize a multi-session CD

  1. Start another burn session with the same CD, as above.
  2. When you reach Edit Options, deselect the option to Create a multi-session disc.
  3. If you like, add additional files.
  4. Proceed with the burning as directed. This time RealPlayer will finalise the disc.

Good to Know

Some MP3 players, as well as CD-ROM and DVD drives, cannot read discs that have not been finalized. Finalized discs meet all CD and DVD playback standards.
