Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

Making a data CD for your car and house using WINDOWS

Making a data disk is easy, and it stores many more songs than a traditional mastered CD yet it can be done on almost any blank CD it doesnt need to be any special kind.

Step 1: Get your blank CD. (They usually are about 700MB of space or 180mins)

Step 2: Insert CD into disk drive

Step 3: A screen will pop up, asking how you want to use the CD...

Step 4: Choose "Use Windows to create my cd"

Step 5: A folder will come up which you can drag your songs into

Step 6: Drag all your songs until its full (usually like 90 songs)

Step 7: Choose creat disk... and your done :)

NOTE: This type of CD will ONLY work in NEWER model cars that play MP3s or WMA. But it will work on all computers... and many new cars too.

I have never burned a CD. I have need of burning two tonight. What do I do?


are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty easy...windows will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank cd...vista usually asks you to format the disk...select ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be done....you can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. ......now burning a dvd is alot more complicated....do you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good advice....youtube also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".

my disk cd-R cant burn any songs


I suggest you look at the file format that you are saving your songs as. It might be that you are saving them at too high a quailty than what you need. Have a look at the disc you have done see what the file is and it's size.

i had to download all kinds of drivers to get my computer to do basics like viewing movies hearing music and finally burn music now i learned i can only save data(lots of songs at one time) or make a cd on cd r or rw cds using windows music player but it says i need to enter an blank cd win i put in a dvd-rw cd and i bought alot of cd-r80 disk that my computer wont copy **** to what are they good for?


cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know
Thanks,

I can record anything to a cd with my boss 1180 br it always say


Im Guessing Your Trying To Burn It Off Before Mastering It Which Means All The Tracks Between 1 And 10. First You Click Audio Cd Write/Play Then Select Disc At Once And Then It Should Guide You From There. I Hope This Helps
