Part 2. How to Burn Music to CD in Windows 7 with Windows Media Player

This next portion of our methodology demonstration is a little closer to home. Windows Media Player, after all, is a built-in software in even the more recent Windows OS computers. You’re probably more familiar with it as what it technically is — a media player, but it can be easily used to burn Music to CD in your Windows 7 PC as well! The only catch is, you might want to be mindful about the files that you import into the software. Conversion might be necessary if Windows Media Player does not accept the file extension of your music. In any case, let’s proceed with the step-by-step.

Burn Music to CD in Windows 7 with Windows Media Player

Step One: Import Audio

The first thing you have to do in order to use Windows Media Player to burn music onto a CD is to upload your music. This you can do simply by dragging and then dropping your files onto the library area. Once you have your music in the Windows Media Player library, click the “Burn” button, and you’ll be able to move onto the next step.

Part 3. Burn Music to CD in Windows 7 with iTunes

iTunes will be the third and final program that we’re going to be introducing to you today. It is, similar to the Windows Media Player, better known for its ability to act as a media player. It’s also a lot more finicky than the Windows Media Player. As in, you will almost definitely need to convert a couple if your files. In any case, the process for burning CDs with iTunes is almost identical to the Windows Media Player method. So, you shouldn’t have too much of a problem following this next step-by-step.

Burn Music to CD in Windows 7 with iTunes

Step One: Create a Playlist

Of course, you’re going to first have to upload your music to the iTunes library. This is simple — so long as the file extension is compatible, then all you need to do is drag and drop it into place. Once that’s done, then you have to put them in a separate playlist to be burned. Create your playlist by selecting your uploaded audio, clicking the right-button of your mouse, and then finding the Add to Playlist > New Playlist option.

Step Three: Finish it Up

It’s time to wrap up this process by making a couple of choices:

  • ● Preferred Speed: This is wholly up to you. Just remember that slower speeds tend to result in better quality discs.
  • ● Disc Format: Again, wholly up to you. You can choose Audio CD for better quality discs, MP3 CD for lower quality disc (but you can store more audio), or you can choose Data Disc (in which case certain files from your playlist might make it incompatible with certain CD/DVD players.

Once you’ve made your choice, you can click the “Burn” button to initiate the permanent copy of your music to your CD.
