Chapter 31. Ripping and Burning CDs > Burning Your Own CDs

Burning Your Own CDs

Unlike ripping songs from a CD, burning digital music to CD doesn't require you to set a lot of format options. That's because whatever format the original file is in, when it 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.

There are no quality levels to set, either. All CDA-format files are encoded at the same bit rate. So you really don't have any configuration to do—other than deciding which songs you want to copy.
