    I made an Audio CD without finalizing and found out my CD Player cannot read it
    So i want to finalize it, though i have nothing else to add, how do you finalize it?

    This is actually a software issue...
    But "closing" a CD is usually a simple task performed by the burning software you are using.If you look in the prefereces/options of the program,you may see that option for finishing a CD.
    I use EZCD and it has a wizard that asks me how I want to handle the finish of my CDs.It gives me the option to leave them "open" so I can add more to them in the same session,or close them,ending that session,or close it and protecting the recording so that the CD cannot be written to any further.

    In Nero Burning rom, you can finalize a CD from the "info" window. If the session is open, there will be a button to finalize it.

    If you do audio-cds, never leave the session open, nor create more than one session, because the hi-fi cd players, discmans and car-cd players never see open sessions, and if the disc has several sessions, they only see the first one.
    Ah, and avoid CD-RW, usually they don't work well for cd-audio players
