Burning Your Own CDs

The beauty of a CD burner is that it frees you from the stifling restrictions put on your musical tastes by the record companies. You can create your own “best of” CDs that play in any CD player—and that contain only your favorite songs in your favorite order. The procedure goes like this:

  1. Click the Burn tab. Insert a blank CD.

    If you’ve inserted a rewriteable disc like a CD-RW, and you’ve burned it before, right-click its icon in the navigation tree. Then, from the shortcut menu, choose “Erase disc” before you proceed.
