Burning CDs and DvDs Possible?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I haven't "burned" a CD for such a long time that I absolutely forget how or if I can even do it... I have this as my CD drive. I simply want to burn music (download songs, make them into CDs) onto a CD that I can play in my car etc. I have windows XP

1. Is the drive I have capable of simply burning audio files so that I may play a CD? If so, it also states that it is a "DVD Burner" is this true?
2. Please suggest a good program to simply create and burn CDs? I will utilize torrents for music files, and would like turn these downloads into music for my car.
3. Am I able to burn DVDs? I would assume with the current drive I have HD DVD burns won't be possible?

Remember: I have extremely limited knowledge/know how on burning CDs or DVDs so everything is foreign to me.

Thanks in advance!

Yes to burning CD and DVD. No to HD-DVD (dead format anyways).

Anymore use any program you want to burn, even the native windows one.

EDIT: Wasn't paying attention when you said XP. XP still has an inbuilt burn program but you're better off downloading something free like ImgBurn

Okay, once I get comfortable with burning Im sure Ill purchase a Blu-Ray burner but that is a matter for another day...

I mean is it as simple as downloading my chosen songs..opening the burn program, putting in a blank CD and pressing "burn" or what? I want a simple but functional third party program to burn...any specific suggestions?

Also...will any CD-RW do to burn CDs onto? For instance...I know that all the "Monster" HD cables are pretty much BS...I have plenty of HD cords that I use that all cost me under $5 and they work fine..what do I need to look for specifically when buying blanks? For instance with HDMI cables it is generally better to make sure they are "gold tipped" and beyond that they should work just as good as a $120 cable.

cctaylor88 , your drive is capable of burning both CD's and DVD's

there are many you can burn songs into CD

1 . Using Windows Media Player

http://windows.microsoft.com/is-IS/windows-vista/Burn-a-CD-or-DVD-in-Windows-Media-Player

Note : The Guide above is for Vista and should be same for XP

http://www.wikihow.com/Burn-a-Music-CD-Using-Windows-Media-Player-9

2. or as Senator suggested you can use imgburn

Guide : http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=5555

3. or use InfraRecorder to burn audio cds

Note : All above mentioned apps are free

AFAIK all HDMI should work just fine
