Your post is a bit confused. Nevetheless,

1. Open Windows Explorer.
2. Navigate to the folder ..

c:\Documents & Settings\useraccountname\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning

3. The CD Burning folder is the CD burning staging area for Windows XP. Place your shortcuts here to whatever you want to burn now and later. Make sure the total data do not exceed the writable capacity of the CD.

or am I off track?

Yes, multisession. You have choices when setting up the burn. Choose to close the session but not the disk.

I used XP to burn a CD.

Everytime I burn something to a CD, I create a folder with a name that identifies what I am placing into it.

Therefore, I can burn many items onto one CD, with each burning instance having its own identifing folder.

I think the you want to burn a multisession disc...

I'm not sure if the built in windows burner does it or not but what you want is track at once recording that is a feature of most third party burner software. Once the disk fills up there's usually an option to "finalize the disc".

Problems you may encounter...let's say you're filling up a disc in one computer and you take it to another...the other computer's cd/dvd reader may or may not recognize files after track one...each burning session is called a track. So you'll only be able to see files from the first track on the second computer. This happened to me while burning tao (track at once) cds on linux and then coming back to xp on the same computer...

Truth can become lie, but if lies become truth we're in trouble.

Nero offers a way to use a cd-rw as if it were a usb or hard drive. Darn I can't remember the name. Vista I think calls it live file system but it was always called something else.

The program is a packet writer called In CD. Roxio has a similar program called Drag to Disk. Roxio's version works with CDR. In CD requires CDRW.

Of course the Roxio version can't really erase a CDR so it just marks changed files as removed. Takes up some disk space but is worth it for the cost difference.

I use Drag to Disk regularly to immediately create a second file of the data. Packet writers have their own set of potential issues but if used correctly can be handy.

I have a spare CD burner installed and the CDR disk for Drag to Disk stays in all the time. Ejecting the disk takes a fair amount of time and ejecting without making the disk readable can render the disk upusable in any other computer.
