..the damn songs I burned on this one CD.
Actually, make that one song. I didn't know that if you exit the CD from the burner, it automatically closes so you can't burn anything later on on it any more, and must finish making that "Burned Album" in that one time. Did I got that right?!
I didn't know that before so this one song is now stuck and I want whole album on it and to start all over again ,but I need that song deleted.
How do I do it?!
FYI: I have AheadNero.

Also, on the Net, I can burn only those songs that I download, right?!

Janny, if your CD contains just this song, you can simply erase the disk, either via Nero itself or through the existing program of your PC.

With Nero: Open the program and from the main menu, select the option that says 'More'. Usually this is at the end. Click this and you will get a number of options. One of them should be 'Erase disk'. Click on this so as to erase the whole disk (you may need to follow a couple of steps, but the program itself will guide you), and Nero will simply do it on its own.

With the existing PC program: put the CD in the drive (if an autorun window appears, just cancel it) and then go to "My Computer", open it and double click on the CD-ROM drive so as to open the CD. Your screen should be divided in two windows. On the right, you should be able to see the contents of your CD. On the left, there should be a column with options. One of the top ones, should say something like 'Erase the contents of this CD'. Select this to erase the whole disk.

If there are more contents in your disk and you want to delete just one song, you can do it only with Nero: open the program and let it detect the CD that you have already put in the drive. You should be able to choose the "Burn Data CD" option. You will get a window into which you can drag and drop files or add them by pressing the Add button on the right. Underneath the Add button, there should be a Delete button. Select the song you want to erase and press Delete. Press the "Next" button at the bottom of the program window. Then press the "Burn" button at the bottom right corner and let the program complete the task. You should get a message of success at the end and the program will eject the CD.

However, and this is very important: if your CD is CD-R (=CD Recordable), you cannot erase it in any way. You can only erase a CD that is CD-RW (=CD Rewritable).

Yes, I think the songs from CD cannot be deleted, which is a bad thing considering u want to choose the songs to put in it.

Unless the CD it WR (Re-ritable) It should say "CR-RW" on the case, then the disk cannot be wiped, they are one burn only disks!

I fogot to say when using nero, aways select the "Multisession" checkbox on the "Burn" within Nero. *Not sure if Nicky mentionesd that.

Then you can add songs if you only have like 5 so far! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

And yeah its loads easy as Joseph said to put all the songs into one folder, but also bear in mind you get 16-20 songs on one CD, so only put that amount in the folder!
