need more info - depends on the CD and what you want to do - ie: if a music CD, then you need to use media player, itunes or another application to "rip" the music to mp3 or other desired format to play from the USB drive. If you want to copy software or files, then use windows explorer. If you want to create a bootable installtion drive basically a copy of an installation CD, then that's entirely different and a bit more complicated.
You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player. An audio CD can contain just approximately eight minutes of music. On the other hand, if you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player, it will be able to hold numerous hours of music. Video files and pictures can also be added to the data discs. When you burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7, the Windows Media Player does not transform the selected files to a different format prior to saving them to a blank data disc, so the files stay in the compressed condition. This allows you to put much more items on a single disc.As the format of the files is not changed, the quality of the files remains the same. You can burn a data CD or data DVD in Windows 7 using Media Player as follows:
Click All Programs.
Select Windows Media Player.
Click the Burn tab in the Player Library.
Click Burn options and select Data DVD or CD.
Insert a blank disc into the CD or DVD burner of your computer.
Close the AutoPlay dialog box if it comes into sight.
Some people have more than one CD drive in their computer. If you have multiple CD drives in your computer too, select the one you would like to use in the navigation window.
Look for the songs you want to burn.
In order to make your burn list, drag the songs from the details pane in the center of the Player Library to the list pane which is on its right side.
You can also change the order of the items in the burn list by dragging them upward or downward in the list.
To remove a song from your list, simply right-click on the item and click on Remove from list.
After you finish making your list, click upon Start burn.
It can take a while to burn a data disc. If your selected items cannot fit in one disc, you also have the choice of burning the rest of the items to a different disc. A data DVD is not the same as a DVD-Video disc ex. the movie DVD you buy or rent from the store.
the 'windows media player' program will burn cds if you have a library of music on the computer. when you open the program it will help you look for music files on your computer, and almost walk you thru the process of burning a cd. you can 'rip' cds (record cds to hardrive of computer), transfer mp3s from a device, or purchase music online with the windows media player also.
Sometimes you need to have a burning software like nero or roxio, if you want to get music from an audio cd you can use rip by going to the windows media player but if not tell me what kind of software you are using for copying.
