STEP 2: Insert a blank CD disk into your CD-RW drive

STEP 4: Open create new data disk

Select the audio files you want to burn in the explorer of the data CD window and drag them to the compilation pane of the data CD window. As this is going to be an mp3 disk, you can arrange your compilation files in folders and subfolders (see the picture below).

Note: Make sure that the total size of your compilation does not exceed the actual disk size - for that, check the meter at the bottom of the data CD window (see the picture below).

Click the Burn button (top right corner) when ready. The dialog box Record data CD will appear to show you the burning process: first, your files will be converted to mp3 format; secondly, they will be burnt to CD disk. When the process ends, click Ok on the Information message box. Now enjoy listening to your favorite mp3 songs outside the computer!
