Most CD-R drives ship with special software. This software is used not only to control the creation of CD-R disks, but also to allow the user to "compose" what will go on the disk. For example, the software will allow a user creating a "best of" audio CD to arrange the tracks in his or her preferred order, etc. It will also allow the organization and management of mixed-mode disks containing multiple formats, as well as the creation of an image file for better performance in burning CDs.
The importance of CD-R software should not be underestimated. Good software can make the difference between a good CD-R experience and a nightmare. The software has a direct impact on how easy it is to make disks in the way that you want, and can be the difference between success and failure in many cases. Make sure you find out what software is bundled with your drive.
