Burning Audio CDs and Data CDs or DVDs

Windows Media Player makes it easy to create your own custom CDs and DVDs. You can burn audio CDs as well as data CDs or DVDs. An audio CD is a CD that you can play in a standard CD player. A data CD or DVD is a disc that stores a copy of your media. With some CD players, you may be able to play a data CD with Windows Media Audio (WMA), MP3, or WAV files.

To burn CDs or DVDs, your computer must have a readable/writable CD or DVD drive. If you aren't sure whether your computer has a readable/writable CD or DVD drive, you should look at the faceplate on the drive tray. A readable/writable CD or DVD drive should have a large RW logo to indicate this, and under this logo it should state the supported format or formats. A CD burner can support CD-R, CD-RW, or both disc types. A DVD burner can support DVD-R, DVD+R, or both disc types. Most DVD burners also support CD-R, CD-RW, or both disc types.
