Can I specify the truncate size?


Recommended Posts


I am burning an audio cd from mp3 files utilizing the write mode using the cue sheet.  I add files which take up more space than the CD can hold.  I am presented with the option to overburn or truncate just before burning.  I choose truncate.  However Imgburn seems to overburn anyway.

It is my understanding that truncate writes as much as the disc reports it will hold.  

Before I burn the disc, Imgburn reports the free space as: 736,960,512 bytes.  

After choosing truncate, the disc ends up with 759,498,752 bytes written to it.  I have tested this twice to ensure I was selecting truncate.

When I play my CD, at then end of the CD the player errors by continuously seeking (I hear the head continuously seeking).

My question is can I select or specify the truncate size to prevent this from happening?
