Before adding files/folders it is required to choose Project type (either clicking on the corresponding project tab, or selecting a new project in the main menu).


In the current version Complex Evolution supports the following types of projects:

Data disc - A data disc, CD or DVD, is used to store electronic data, such as files and applications that reside on your computer's hard drive. This type of project also allows creating bootable discs. You can add or append information to the data disc again and again until it is full. If you're using rewritable discs, Complex Evolution offers you the choice of appending or erasing and rewriting your disc.
Complex Evolution can create a special type of disc called a JukeboxCD. On a CD your MP3 and WMA files remain compressed. Jukebox CDs can contain many more songs than a CD created using the Audio CD for Car or Home CD Player project. However, CDs can only be played on computers and music players that can read MP3, WMA, or WAV files. Jukebox CDs can be created using the Data Disc project.
