Note : CD Recording capabilities are included by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you use Windows XP (32-bit) then the functionality is included in XP SP3. If you use Windows XP x64 or Windows Server 2003, or Windows XP x86 without the SP3 (SP2 or less), you must download a small patch, the Image Mastering API patch from Microsoft. To download this, go here.
Note : Turbo Play is not a replacement for your normal CD/DVD recording software. The functionality here is basic, to help you have a quick writing of your tracks to a CD/DVD. If you want to have control over all parameters allowed, you should use your normal CD/DVD mastering software.
Turbo Play provides a simple way, via the CD Master menu, to manipulate your CD-R.
- Select "Erase CD/DVD" drive to erase the media inside your disk drive. A dialog asks you which device is to be used (in case you have more than one), and then Erases the CD. This will only work of course with a CD-RW or a DVD-RW.
Note: The CD/DVD cannot be recovered after this operation.
- Select "Write Selected Tracks to Audio CDR" to write the selected audio tracks to an Audio CD. Turbo Play will resample the tracks, if needed, so the final CD is 44100Hz, and then write the specified tracks to the CD. Turbo Play can leave the CD-R open for further writing, but
Turbo Play can only write to blank CDs itself; It is recommended to write all your tracks at once to the CD.
- Select "Write Selected Tracks as MP3/MID in ISO cd" will write the selected tracks to a data CD as mp3 or midi files. Turbo Play will resample the tracks, if needed, so the mp3s are saved in 44100Hz. Turbo Play can write to an already written but opened CD (it will import previous session) and it can also optionally leave the CD open for further writing.
