Chapter 10. Windows Media Player > Burning Music CDs

Burning Music CDs

If you’re a fan of heavy-metal bands, you’re aware that they insist on putting at least one cringe-inducing ballad on every album. If you have a CD burner, you can take your revenge by creating personal CDs of music that you like, without appalling filler tunes.

To burn a music CD:

1.
As described in the preceding section, create a playlist of tracks to be burned, in the desired playback order.

2.
Click Copy to CD or Device on the Features taskbar.

3.
In the Items to Copy pane on the left, select the playlist or category of tracks that you want to copy.

4.
Clear the check boxes for tracks you don’t want to copy.

5.
Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW into your CD drive.

6.
In the Items on Device pane on the right, select the type of CD you want to create (Figure 10.30).

Figure 10.30. If “Will not fit” appears in the Status column (left pane) for some tracks, you must clear some check boxes until all the selected tracks fit. “Will not fit” appears even if the length of the selected tracks exactly matches the CD length, because Media Player inserts seconds (spaces) between tracks.


7.
Click Copy.

The process takes a bit of time and disk space. You should leave Media Player alone until it ejects the completed CD.
