Use small toolbar

Check this to save vertical screen real estate on the toolbar. (It shrinks the toolbar.)


Create log file

A log file will be created during operation of the software so that errors or program defects can be tracked. If you feel you have found a bug or are having technical problems, please send us your ‘cdburner-log.txt’ file located in your Acoustica MP3 CD Burner directory.


CD Rip/Burn Engine

This option will only be visible if the Gear CD Burning engine has been installed. The Gear engine is a separate install. To install it, please visit Burning and ripping CDs is a difficult process. We license two technologies to burn CDs (Gear & Goldenhawk). For support reasons, we give you a choice of the engine. We recommend that you use the Gear engine. Note that if you want to burn CD-Text, you will need to switch to Goldenhawk.


Use Acoustica’s ASPI driver

**This only applies if you are using the Goldenhawk engine, as Gear has it’s own pre-installed ASPI drivers.** If this option is checked, the software will attempt to use special ASPI drivers supplied by Acoustica’s web page. The ASPI layer is how the software communicates with the CD drives. (Note that these special ASPI drivers are not part of the default download.) See for more info.
