v IBM RecordNow
IBM RecordNow is disc mastering software that allows you to create your own
music or data discs from files on your computer, or from other disc media such
as CDs or DVDs. Music discs created with IBM RecordNow will play on any CD
player, whether it's at home, in your car, or through your computer's CD-ROM.
IBM RecordNow also makes it easy to create data discs that can be read on any
appropriate CD or DVD disc reader.
Note: Some DVD players cannot read CD-R media. Refer to the documentation
that accompanied your drive for information on supported media.
IBM RecordNow guides you, step-by-step, through the recording process with
simple wizards and an intuitive interface.
Using IBM RecordNow you can create:
– Exact copies of existing discs: The Exact Copy feature makes a duplicate of
your master disc, transferring the disc layout of the original disc to your
CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD media.
– Discs of archived data from your hard drive: The Make a Data Disc feature
stores electronic data, such as the files and applications that reside on your
computer's hard drive. Unlike music discs, data discs store files that are
readable only by a computer, and cannot be played on your home or car
stereo, even if audio files are on the disc.
– Music compilations from WAV, MP3, or WMA files, or from existing music
discs: The Make a Music Disc feature creates custom music discs from files on
your hard drive or your existing music discs. The CD music database feature
can automatically tag your files with track information to help you sort
through your collection.
Note: Please refer to the IBM RecordNow On-line Help, for more information on
how to Make an Exact copy, Create a Data Disc, or Create an Audio disc
with IBM RecordNow.
