Have a Sony CD-Burner:
http://www.sonystyle.com/vaio/storage/crx1611.shtml

I use Roxio and just purchased CD-Rs(8x-multispeed by Memorex)

http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&dept=1&WLBS=fsweb1&biasid=9AF96A955EC147D8A2F3556AB04B89A2&sku_id=0665000FS10001568&catid=&newdeptid=1

Roxio doesnt let me append data on a burned cd. I just burned a 10K-file and wanted to added few more files but it doesnt accept the same CD-R, even though it says 'Insert a blank media or media with free space'.

I have another PC which has HP-external-burner-8230
http://www.hpcdwriter.com/products/8200e/overview.asp

HP's software allows me to do the above(I'm using the same Memorex CD-Rs).

What could be wrong here????

Need help......

Check to see if you have "Close CD" checked in the options when you're burning. Try selecting "Close Session" and leaving "Close CD" unchecked. This should enable you to add data at a later time.

Thanks for the tip. One more question, when creating a music-cd, I have to add all the tracks at once why cant I append them as acheivable for data-cds?
I've been told that Music-Cd locks the Cd unless I use Multi-session Cds also my burner needs to support multi-session....

any idea.....

You're correct, you should be able to add additional tracks to an audio CD, as long as you don't select "Close Session/Close Disc".

You may want to update your Roxio software also.  If you're using Easy CD 5.0:

Also, in the Options section of the Record screen, you need to choose Track at Once method, not Disc at Once.  Disc at Once (DAO) will not allow you to add additional tracks.
