    When I began burning audio CDRs in 1999 I used a stand alone Phillips unit. Eventually I got the software and did virtually all of my CD burning on the computer. I am aware that CDR Music discs can be used on a computer or a stand alone unit whereas CDR data discs can only be used for copying music on a computer. I occasionally get out one of the old CDR Music discs to rip certain tracks to my hard drive to send to others or create new compilations.

    I bought a box of CDR Music discs recently at a good price. I burned some of them for a friend. He just replied that his new Dell computer has two drives and neither will allow him to copy tracks to his hard drive. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks Dennis

    Are you saying that they won't play on his computer or that he can't copy from them on his computer

    If they are pirate copies & you are copying copyright material then we won't be able to help you as that is against forum rules

    If they are your own material that you have composed and saved or is copyright free tahen g9ive us a bit more detail to be able to see if we can help , but it looks like youa re sailing a bit close to the wind on this one

    These were copies of some music CDs from my own collection - nothing pirated; they were purchased in stores. I just wanted to share. Basically this is what the guy said in an email to me

    "They did rip to my hard drive ok but the drives sped up and slowed down, grunted, generally acted weird
    and the software crashed a few times. This doesn't happen on regular commercial cd's or
    DATA cdr's. So I was a little surprised.

    Well, I just tried copying WTB with one drive and it crashed after the third track.

    I tried the other drive and it ripped just fine. Go figure. "

    It was my understanding that once a CDR is closed, it acts as a regular Music CD in most players and computers regardless of whether or not it is a CDR Music or CDR Data CDR.

    Does what happened sound strange or somewhat normal? Thanks Dennis

    If you purchased the Audio CDs yourself and you are giving your friend a copy of the song/s, then you are in voilation of Title 17 U.S.C. Section 117 (2) of the Copyright Law.

    For clarification on the CD-Rs: If a CD is not closed properly, then the CD will only work in the drive it was made in. I did have this problem myself. I don't use Music CD-Rs so I can't help you there.
