Odd thing with CDBurnerXPPro

    I'm using CDBurnerXPPro as my burning software. I've come across an odd
    thing when I go to the CD properties after burning a second or
    subsequent session (this is using CDR).
    After the first session, if I right-click on the CD icon and select
    properties, it tells me (for example) that there is 320MB of data on the
    CD and there is free space of 330MB. I have not finalised the disk at
    this point.
    if I then burn another session and add files of 130MB to this cd, when I
    then click on "Properties" it tells me I have data of 130 MB and free
    space of 200MB! I now know what it seems to be doing, but why does
    "Properties" only show the data added in the last session and not the
    overall total? The files are certainly all there.

    Using CDBurnerXPPro's burning abilities? Without InCD or some such software
    I doubt it can be accomplished.
    Then I tried it. Holy Shi*!! It worked! I didn't think it could be done with
    XP's software. It did it just fine! I could read the first session as a
    folder within the second burn.

    CDBurnerXPPro actually does do multi-session.
