TAO stands for, track at once. THere is a slight interruption between tracks on the cd that you burn. DAO, stands for, disk at once. The whole cd is burning data tracks to it with out interruption.

Just stick to Disc-At-Once unless your burner is having particular problems with it. Also, by using DAO you'll be able to squeeze a little more onto the disc, as well as have the option of over-burning too.

No, I'm not a newb. I happen to be a Mod, so I know more than a little about these things. I've never heard of XDAT before, but I know that the only two methods of writing to a disc are Track-At-Once and Disc-At-Once. What you said before was right, but what you've just said doesn't make any sense.

To knoot, just stick to what I said and you'll be fine.

ya thanks it worked this time, its stange i don't think that it works if you do a TAO, because i did it twice exactly the same but one was TAO and the other on was DAO, and the DAO worked, strange. This would have been a lot easier if it was not for my buner its a piece of crap, and external TEAC 4x

Funny thing is, that guy's been registered on the forums since October 17th 2001 :D
Maybe he meant to say XA1 Data Mode :lol:
