Chapter 17. Taking Your SONAR Project to CD > Burning CDs with Windows XP

Burning CDs with Windows XP

If you are running SONAR under Windows XP, then you don’t need any third-party CD burning software because Windows XP provides built-in burning capabilities. By utilizing the new version of Windows Media Player (included with Windows XP), you can burn audio CDs and data CDs (which I’ll talk about in Appendix B, “Backing Up Your Project Files”) by following a few simple steps.

  1. In Windows XP, click on Start > Windows Media Player to open Windows Media Player.

  2. If the Player is not displayed in full mode (as a normal window with a menu bar), click on the Show Menu Bar button (see Figure 17.9).

    Figure 17.9. Click on the Show Menu Bar button to display Windows Media Player in a full window.


  3. Click on the Media Library button (located on the left side of the Player window) to display the Media Library (see Figure 17.10).

    Figure 17.10. Access the Media Library using the Media Library button.


  4. In the list on the left side of the Media Library, select All Audio.

  5. Choose File > Add to Media Library > Add File to display the Open dialog box.

  6. In the Look In drop-down list, choose the location of the WAV files you want to burn to CD.

  7. In the file list below the Look In drop-down list, select the WAV files you want to burn to CD. To select multiple files, hold down the Ctrl key on your computer keyboard as you select files with your mouse.

  8. When you are finished selecting files, click on Open. Your selected files will be displayed as a list on the right side of the Media Library.

  9. If you want to remove a file from the list, right-click on the file and choose Delete from Library.

  10. To change the title of a file, right-click on the file and choose Properties to open the Properties dialog box (see Figure 17.11). In addition to the title, you can also specify the file’s artist, author, album, and genre. Click on OK.

    Figure 17.11. Use the Properties dialog box to specify a title, artist, and other attributes for your files.


  11. Click on the Copy to CD or Device button (located on the left side of the Player window) to display the CD Copier (see Figure 17.12).

    Figure 17.12. Use the CD Copier to burn your audio to CD.


  12. Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD-R drive. The CD Copier will recognize the blank disc and display the message Copy “All Audio” to “CD Drive”.

  13. To burn your CD, click on the Copy Music button (located on the top right of the CD Copier).
