Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
Here's the 1st HOW?
Windows XP does provide native support for CD writing through its CD Recording feature, but we don't recommend that you rely on this method unless you plan to only use it to back up a small number of files. For other purposes, such as making regular data backups and music discs, WinXP users as well as users of older Windows OSes (operating systems) should use third-party burning software, such as Ahead Software's Nero 6 Ultra Edition ($69.99 download; $99.99 retail package; www.nero.com) or Roxio's Easy Media Creator ($99.95; www.roxio.com).
On the other hand, if you just need to burn a few occasional files to disc, you can save a few dollars and stick with WinXP's CD Recording feature. To write CDs using this feature, begin by inserting a blank disc in your CD-R (CD-recordable) or CD-RW (CD-rewriteable) drive. Once WinXP notices the CD-R/RW media in the drive, it will ask you to open a writeable CD folder through Windows Explorer. Accept this option, drag and drop your desired files or folders into the open CD-R/RW window, and click Write These Files To CD. WinXP will burn the files to the blank CD-R/RW and eject the disc when it finishes.

If the disk is finalized you can't normally write anything else.
The words "Finalizing" and "Closing" are used interchangeably by most recording applications. To "Finalize" or "Close" a disc means that no additional data can be written to it. This is done when the last session's lead-in is written. The option to close a disc is usually selected after all of the data that will be written has been placed in the project window, and the user knows that no more data will be added to the disc in subsequent recording sessions. The next writable address on the disc is not recorded in that lead-in, so the CD recorder, in subsequent attempts to write, has no way of knowing where to begin writing.
