Cache Image Before Writing: Stores or decodes the files on your hard drive before recording the files to CD-ROM.

Finalize Disc: Closes the CD so that nothing else can be written to it.

Test Write: Starts the entire CD Recording process without actually writing anything to the CD. This option is for making sure everything is going to work correctly before actually recording the CD. Remember to make sure this option is not checked when you want to write to the CD disc.

Use Buffer Protection: Eliminates the possibility of buffer underrun errors and other recording problems.

Important! Not all CD-recordable drives support this feature.
