Creating an MP3 Disc with RecordNow

  • PrintPrint


Below are the steps for creating a music disc from MP3 files with RecordNow.
The RecordNow software does not have an option to leave a disc open to add more audio files at a later time. All files must be copied to the disc in one operation. The software will automatically close the disc, and it cannot be appended to when the burn is finished.

Before you begin

The writing operation is a memory and computer processor intensive operation. As a precautionary measure, close other programs before starting a write operation.
