Burn a CD: using Apple's software and the built-in CD drive

When you copy files onto a CD, it's called burning a CD. A CD burner uses a laser beam to burn digital information into the surface of a CD. You can't just burn any ol' CD, though—you need to understand the differences between CD-ROM, CD-R (cee dee dash are), CD+R (cee dee plus are), and CD-RW.

CD formats

CD-ROM (Compact Disc–Read Only Memory): You cannot erase information from or copy information to a CD-ROM, such as an old application disc that you don't need any more. If you've been saving that stack of AOL CDs for recycling as your own CDs, forget it. They're CD-ROMs.
