To organize data files stored in a PC, you can store related
files in a folder . A folder can contain other folders as well as
files. For example, folder A can contain folder B, and folder B
can contain folder C; this is called “nesting of folders”. The
maximum depth of nested folders, allowed by ISO 9660, is 8.
There are 3 utilities used to record data on a disc.
1.DAO (Disc At Once) utility
All data to be written must be prepared in advance and
written onto a disc from the beginning to the end in one
operation. No data can be added to a disc on which data
were already written with DAO utility .
2. TAO (Track At Once) utility
Data are written onto a disc file by file. Data can be added to
a disc on which data were written with TAO utility .
3. Packet writing utility
Files are divided into smaller pieces while being recorded,
depending on the size of available spaces on the disc. Data
can be added to a disc on which data were written with packet
writing utility .
This unit can play MP3 discs recorded using DAO and TAO
A session is a collection of data, covering from the beginning
to the end of recording made in one operation. W ith TAO (Track
At Once) utility , data can be recorded with several operations.
A session corresponds to the data recorded in one operation.
This unit can play data recorded in the first 2 operations. In
