How to Burn Music to a CD/DVD in Windows Media Player
If you know how to burn music to a CD/DVD in Windows Media Player, you can create mix CDs of your favorite music. Burning music to CDs or DVDs is also a great way to create a backup of all the music that you’ve accumulated in case your hard drive crashes. Without this kind of backup, all your music could be lost.
Insert a blank CD or DVD suitable for storing audio files in your computer CD/DVD-RW drive.
Note that DVDs come in different types, including DVD+, DVD- and DVD+/-. You must be sure your DVD drive is compatible with the disc type you’re using or you can’t burn the DVD successfully. Check the packaging for the format before you buy!
Open Windows Media Player and click the Burn button.
Click through albums and playlists and drag the songs you want to add to the CD/DVD to the Burn pane.
Continue dragging songs to the Burn pane until you have the mix you want.
Click Start Burn.
The Status column for the first song title reads Writing to Disc and changes to Complete when the track is copied.
When the burn is complete, your disc is ejected (although you can change this option by choosing Burn→Eject Disc After Burning to deselect it).
