Application #4: Burning Your Own Music CDs

CD burning is the opposite of CD ripping. When you burn a CD, you record an audio CD from the digital audio files stored on your computer's hard disk—which means you need to upgrade your system with a CD-R/RW drive.

Unlike CD ripping, CD burning doesn't require you to set a lot of format options. That's because when the original file gets copied to CD, it gets encoded into the CD Audio (CDA) format. All music CDs use the CDA format, so whether you're burning an MP3 or WMA file, your CD burner software translates it to CDA before the copy is made.
