Part 2. How to Burn Audio to CD on Windows 8 with Default Way

On the other hand, if you’re looking to burn audio to a CD using only a Windows 8 PC, then there’s a way of doing that as well! For this, all you’ll really need is an empty disc and a DVD driver that will read, and process said discs for you. Of course, it’s not going to be as clean-cut and easy as using the Wondershare DVD Creator, but it will do in a pinch. Especially if you don’t mind a slightly longer wait time during the burning stage.

How to Burn Audio to CD on Windows 8 with Default Way

Step One: Blank Disc

Insert a blank disc into a DVD driver connected to your computer to start the process! Then, you need to navigate your computer and search for the DVD drive (it should be under This PC.)

  • ● Once discovered, double-click on the DVD drive and a pop-up menu will appear (shown in the image below.) There, you’ll be asked to name your disc and choose whether you want a re-writeable data disc or to burn files permanently onto the disc.

For our purposes, we chose the latter — which is the with a CD/DVD Player option.
