DAO mode, unlike TAO mode, allows any amount of audio data or no data at all to be written in the "pre-gaps" between tracks. One use of this technique, for example, is to burn track introductions to be played before each track starts. A CD player will generally display a negative time offset counting up to the next track when such pre-gap introductions play. Pre-gap audio before the first track of the CD makes it possible to burn an unnumbered, "hidden" audio track. This track can only be accessed by "rewinding" from the start of the first track, backwards into the pre-gap audio. DAO recording is also the only way to write data to the unused R-W sub-channels.
If you don't want to risk damaging your favorite CDs, then it's a good idea to make copies of them, store the originals in cases and only use the copies. Most desktop computers and especially laptops have only one CD burner drive, so that's why the tutorials on this page are for copying CDs on PCs with only one CD burner drive. This program's user-friendly interface, menu, and step-by-step wizard will help you achieve your disc-related tasks, easily and quickly. Visit product page. In the bottom right corner, at Speed , you can select a burning speed.
