One of the great things about digital music files is the ability to burn your own CDs. While there are plenty of programs on the market to help you do this, one of the most user-friendly is Realplayer.

Tips & Warnings

  • As you add songs, the burner window will show you how much room you have left on the CD. Keep an eye on this to help you plan what songs to add.

  • Make sure you are using a recordable CD to burn an audio CD. If you use a DVD or BluRay disc, you will not be able to play the disc in a CD player.
