How to Burn Music to CD with Wondershare DVD Creator

Step One: Burn Music to CD

The first thing you need to do is launched the Wondershare DVD Creator. In doing so, you will be given a chance of selecting the type of disc that you want to create. Keeping in mind that we want to burn Music to CD, we’ve chosen the Data Disc option.

Step Two: Add Music to Burn to CD

This part is fairly intuitive. Drag and Drop the music that you want to burn onto a CD. The Wondershare DVD Creator reads and processes a bunch of different file extension formats — including the following: MP3, WAV, AIFF, APE, WMA, FLAC, etc.

Step Three: Add or Delete Music

This third step is fully optional. Something that you can do to organize the way your CD is read when inserted into a DVD/CD player.

  • ● Add or Delete audio by using the “+” and “Trash Can” icons respectively.
  • ● Remember to also give your disc a name — by filling in the Disc Label box.

Step Four: Select Burner & Burn Music to CD

Finally, the last thing you need to do is select the appropriate CD/DVD burner. That is the one that has a blank CD in which you can burn the music onto.

  • ● Select a Burner on the drop-down menu at the right-hand corner of the screen.
  • ● THEN, click the “Burn” button to initiate the copying process.

Part 2. How to Burn Music to CD with Mac Computer

This second method is very targeted to a specific audience — as it teaches you how to burn Music to CD with a Mac Computer. For this, we’re going to be using the default CD processing software built into the Mac OS, so you won’t be able to follow these instructions on a Windows Computer (even though Windows does offer a similar software.) In any case, continue reading if you have a Mac computer that you want to use to try and burn your music.

How to Burn Musci to CD with Mac Computer

Step One: Create a Folder for your Music

The first thing you need to do is make sure that your Music is in its own separate folder. If that’s not the case, then make a new one. Creating a folder on Mac is as simple as right-clicking on a blank surface of the screen. That should activate the drop-down menu shown in the image below. There, select the “New Folder” option.

Step Two: Insert a Blank CD

The next step requires that you insert a blank CD into your computer’s DVD/CD drive (or into a DVD/CD Burner connected to your device.) In doing so, a pop-up should appear on your screen. This pop-up can be ignored for the most part. Just click the “Ignore” button and move onto the next step.

Step Three: Select Folder > Burn “Music” to Disc...

For our third step, we’ve selected and right-clicked the folder that we created in the first step. This prompts a drop-down menu where we are given a couple of choices. In order to initiate the burning process, select the following option: Burn “_(Folder Name)_” to Disc...

Step Four: Burn Music to CD with Mac

Finally, we’ve made it to the last step! We have another pop-up window to deal with. With the following elements to consider:

  • ● Disc Name: Fill in the box appropriately with a name for your disc.
  • ● Burn Speed: Select a speed that will work for you (note: faster speeds might result in a higher risk for quality loss.)

Click the “Burn” button when you’re ready to initiate the copying process!

Part 3. How to Burn Music to CD with Other Ways

This third part will introduce the rest of the programs all in one go. Including iTunes, Windows Media Player, and VLC. For the most part, these programs are similar. They’re better suited for media playing than CD-burning, but they offer the feature nonetheless! Again, these three are pretty similar — process-wise as well. Whatever differences they might have will be introduced in the individual step-by-step demonstrations we have for each media player.

Method 1: Burn Music to CD with iTunes

Step One: Create a Playlist

If you want to use iTunes to burn Music to CD. Then you’re going to need a Playlist. You might already have one available on your iTunes library, if so, then you can skip this step. If not, create a New Playlist by selecting the music you want to burn to your CD, right-clicking, and then choosing the following options: Add to Playlist > “New Playlist.”

Step Two: Burn Playlist to CD

You can arrange your Playlist however you want. Just be wary of how much music you include (it has to fit in the available disc storage space.) When you’re ready to burn your music to your disc, click the following options: File tab > “Burn Playlist to Disc”.

Step Three: Prepare for Burning

There’s just one more thing for you to do, and it involves the Burn Settings window (something that should have popped up after the previous step.) Here, you can:

  • ● Preferred Speed: Choose a preferred speed for Music to CD processing — just note, that faster speeds can also equate to higher quality loss risks.
  • ● Disc Format: Choose the Audio CD option for basic Music to CD burning.

Once you’re satisfied, click the “Burn” button to move forward.

Method 2: Burn Music to CD with Windows Media Player

Step One: Burn

Much like with the iTunes demonstration, we start off with media already imported in our Windows Media Player library. We’re going to have to create a playlist with the Windows Media Player as well — in a dock that will be opened after clicking the “Burn” button.

Step Two: Burn List

Rather than a regular playlist, the Windows Media Player calls it a Burn List. Create a Burn List by dragging music from your Music library and dropping it onto the highlighted area under the Burn menu.

Step Three: Start Burning your Burn List!

At this point, you should already have inserted a blank disc into the DVD drive of your computer. Then, and only then, will you be given the “Start Burn” option. Which you can click to initiate the copying of your Burn List.

Method 3: Burn Music to CD with VLC

Step One: Create a Playlist

For the third time, we’re going to have to create a playlist. With VLC, this process is fairly intuitive. Simply drag and drop your music onto the area specified (as highlighted in the image below.)

Tip: If you are not seeing the Playlist dock, then activate it through the View tab.

Step Two: Covert/Save

If you want to burn your VLC playlist to a disc, click the Media tab, and select the “Convert/Save” option OR you can also press the Ctrl + R keys on your keyboard.

Step Three: Open Media

This part is a bit tricky, but you can get through it by selecting the following: Disc tab > Disc Selection: Audio CD > Disc Device, and browse for the DVD/CD Drive with the blank disc inside of it. Finally, click the “Convert/Save” option to initiate the permanent copy of your music onto the blank CD.
