Track-At-Once - With this method, each track is individually written onto the disc.

The write operation is briefly interrupted after each track. This means that a CD-R or CD-RW can be written on just like any standard disk.

Disc-At-Once - In this mode, all of the tracks are written in a single process onto the disc without the laser being switched off. This format is best for audio CD’s that will be played in home and car stereo equipment.

Finalize Disc – The disc will be closed and no additional data or audio can be written to the disc after finalizing it.

Remove silence at end of *.cda tracks – Each audio track when written will have a 2-second gap at the end. When checked, this silence is removed.
