    Hey there.
    Didnt really know what section to put this under, but hey.

    I jsut got a minidisc player, and after reading instructions thousands of times, I really cant find a way for the minidisc to change tracks when the CD changes tracks.....It keeps on recording a whole album onto track 1......

    Anyone haev any ideas?
    Thanks

    Kwill,

    I'm sorta confused by the wording of your question??? What device is doing the recording?

    Also, if you record a music CD as a single session it WILL appear to be only one track, and you will not be able to "jump" from song to song. The CD will LOGICALLY contain only one song...which is the entire album.

    Check the Instructions for your recording software on how to put down individual songs as separate "tracks". That will allow you to skip over a complete song at once, and see the songs separately indexed.

    Kwill,
    I found this description that may clear up your question:

    Making tracks
    Unlike a CD filled with computer files, a CD filled with music (CD-DA - CD-Digital Audio, or simply an 'audio CD') is treated differently. First, a computer - be it a PC or CD player - knows that the files contain audio data for playback purposes and second, the files can't be copied simply by dragging and dropping them.

    When it comes to creating an audio CD, there's an additional point to bear in mind. All CD recording software offers two options to create an audio CD: track-at-once and disc-at-once.

    Track-at-once writes each music track individually and turns off the laser beam between each one. This results in a two-second gap between each track. Disc-at-once writes all of the tracks in one go, without turning off the laser.

    This means that the gaps between tracks can be any length you like or there can be no gap at all and the CD recording software should let you specify your preference.
