Downloading can become quite addictive, and soon you may find that you're running out of space. Fortunately, there is a solution. Nowadays most computers and laptops come equipped with CD drives capable of recording CDs. This can be a great way to offload some of the files you've downloaded and free up space on your hard drive.
Things You'll Need
- Computer with CD-R drive
- Downloaded files
Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD-R drive.
Go to http://cdburnerxp.se and click "Download," then click "Download latest version." Run the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install.
Open CDBurnerXP and select the "Data Disc" from the splash page.
In the folder view that opens, navigate to your Vuze Downloads folder. This is usually in "My Documents" unless you selected a different folder.
Drag files from the Vuze Downloads folder to the CD in the bottom half of the window. Keep an eye on the bar at the bottom of the screen--you cannot exceed 700 MB for a regular CD-R disc.
Click the "Burn" button at the top of the window when you've put everything you want on the disc. Click "OK" and allow the disc to burn.
Tips & Warnings
- Don't eject the CD before CDBurnerXP says it's alright to do so. It will not work until it's done.
