    That depends.

    If the disc has been finalised then no, you can't add any more data.

    If it is a multi-session CD (it hasn't been finalised) then any of the standard burning apps should let you add another session.

    You didn't say if the CD was CD-R or CD-RW. IF it's the first, you can't add any more data -- it can only be written to once. If it's the second, as Cheesemill indicated, you should be able to add more sessions.
    Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    You can add more data to CD-R's, but only if they haven't been finalised.

    It's called multi-session burning.
