Chapter 3. Organizing Your Stuff > Burning CDs from the Desktop

3.6. Burning CDs from the Desktop

Most new PCs come with a CD burner, a drive that can record new CDs that contain your own stuff. If your PC has such a drive—either a CD-R drive (CD recordable, which means you can record each disc only once) or a CD-RW drive (CD rewriteable, for which you can buy CD-RW discs that you can erase and re-record as many times as you like), you're in for a treat. For the first time, Windows XP lets you burn CDs full of your files and folders without requiring a program like Roxio's Easy CD Creator.

That's because Windows XP includes Easy CD Creator (pieces of it, anyway). You now have a great feature for making backups, emailing people, or exchanging files with a PC or a Macintosh (the resulting CDs are cross-platform).
