The first step is to add songs to your disc. Karaoke DVD Burner allows you to add songs directly from CD+G disc or may use karaoke files from your hard drive.

 

To add songs from CD+G disc:

1. Click Read CD+G disc button.

add-cdg-track-75

 

Add CD+G Disc Track dialog box will be displayed. If you have a CD+G disc inserted in your drive you will see the list of tracks. Karaoke DVD Burner uses FreeDB internet database to display track names. If no internet connection is available only track numbers will be displayed.

If you have more than one CD/DVD drive select the proper one from Device list.

2. Check the songs you would like to add to DVD disc and select the way folders will be created. Following modes are available:

songs will be added to the current folder

a new folder will be created and songs will be added there (this is best if you would like to organize your DVD by CD+G disc names)

a new folder will be created for every artist (this works only for discs for which track list has been downloaded)

a folder with the first letter of the artist name will be created (this is best for creating alphabetically ordered DVD); this mode also works only when track list is available

3. Click OK when ready. Karaoke DVD Burner will save the files to the hard disc. Please note that this process may take some time, as video encoding is a complex task.

 

To add multiple songs from the hard drive using Smart Add:

1. Click Smart Add button.

smart-add-75

 

Smart Add dialog box will be displayed. It allows to scan the hard drive for karaoke songs and add them to DVD structure.

2. Select the disc folder on the hard drive that contains the songs. If you would like to include subfolders make sure to check Include subfolders option. Also pick the type of the files you would like to add.

3. Karaoke DVD Burner can use ID3 from MP3 files or can parse the filenames to determine artist name and song title. If you have ripped the songs with the software that writes ID3 tags to MP3 files (Power CD+G Burner does this), then check Read title/artist data from ID3 tags in MP3 files. If you ID3 tag is available Karaoke DVD Burner may use the filename to extract the names. Choose the correct naming template from the list below.

4. Select the way folders will be created. Following modes are available:

songs will be added to the current folder

a new folder will be created and songs will be added there (this is best if you would like to organize your DVD by CD+G disc names)

a new folder will be created for every artist (this works only for discs for which track list has been downloaded)

a folder with the first letter of the artist name will be created (this is best for creating alphabetically ordered DVD); this mode also works only when track list is available

4. Click OK. Karaoke DVD Burner will scan your disc and will add the files to DVD structure.

 

To add files from a single folder:

Click Add Files button and choose the files to add. The files will be added to the current folder.
