How to Burn Audio CDs from MP3 Files

By Mark L. Chambers

With the multitalented Windows Media Player, you can burn your own audio CDs from your MP3 collection. The resulting disc is a perfect match for any home or car CD player and can also be played in your PC’s CD or DVD drive.

To record an audio CD from MP3 files, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Burn tab at the top right of the window.

  2. Drag tracks and playlists to the burn list.

  3. Load a blank CD-R into your recorder.

    Only certain audio CD players can read a CD-RW (rewriteable disc), so always use write-once CD-R media for true compatibility with all audio CD players.

  4. Click the Start Burn button — and sit back and relax while your new disc is recorded.
