    Hey all,
    I am banging my head on this one! Story is I downloaded test tones from Sonnie Parker's site http://www.snapbug.ws/bfd.htm and successfully burned them to a cd with the track titles and file sizes listed etc. Well now I am trying to create my own tones and burn them but am having a very hard time with it. I have created tones in Sound Forge Studio verified they are 16bit 44.1 etc. but when I burn them to the CD I get no track title and no file sizes (the show as 0's).
    If I put the CD in my computer drive it works OK (except for the title etc.) but when I put it in my DVD/CD at home it won't register the files or they play with no audio. The ones I burned of Sonnies play fine! I have cross checked his files with mine in Sound Forge and they are built the same way. I also should add my DVD/CD does support the CDRW's that I am using to do this! [​IMG]
    Any ideas?
    Thanks, Casey

    make sure that the CD isn't formatted for NTFS. If you have an NTFS file structure it will only work on computers that have NTFS.

    I didn't know you could put NTFS on a CD. All the data structures would have to be a waste for storing a mere 700 MB of data.

    Are we talking about test tones as tracks on an audio CD or as WAV files on a data CD?

    He is using a CD-RW which you can format to NTFS.

    Wayne,

    I am talking about wav files burned as an audio cd! Is that my problem? Should I burn it as a data cd?

    Stick with the audio CD, which makes all the NTFS stuff moot anyway.

    Maybe the CD-RW disc has to be finalized before you can play it? What program are you using to burn the CD?

    Wayne,

    I have been finalizing them. I have used Nero and Roxio. Like I said the files I downed from Sonnie's site worked fine. I compared his and mine in Sound Forge and all looks the same, just that when I burn my files they show up as 0 bytes.

    And the WAV files are 16-bit, 44.1k, stereo PCM? Nero and Roxio should be able to burn them to CD tracks in their sleep. I use Nero and I've done that, plus more elaborate things such as splitting a single 60 minute WAV file into individual track numbers.
