Burn a MP3 CD in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & 10
- If you want to have a organized MP3 CD then you should create folders on your computer and copy the MP3 files into these folders before you start the burning process.
- It's recommended to burn your music to a CD-R instead of a CD-RW (rewritable), because not all CD players can play rewritable CDs properly.
- Place all MP3 files or folders in one folder and make sure that the total file size of that folder does not exceed the capacity of your CD (usually 650 MB or 700 MB). To view the file size of a folder, right-click on the folder and choose "Properties".
Follow these steps to make and burn a MP3 CD:
1. Insert a blank CD into the CD/DVD burner drive of your PC.
2. Go to the location on your computer where the music is stored that you want to burn to a CD.
3. Select all the Mp3 files and/or folders.
4. Right-click on the selected files and/or folders, go to "Send to" and choose your CD/DVD burner drive (example: DVD RW Drive (E:)).
A small "Burn a Disc" window will appear.
5. Enter a title for your disc at "Disc title".
6. Select "With a CD/DVD Player" and click on "Next".
Your music will now be copied to your CD/DVD burner drive and it will open in a new window. If not, then go to your CD/DVD burner drive (example: DVD RW Drive (E:)) located at "My Computer" or in the left sidebar of "Windows Explorer" or "File Explorer" (Windows 10).
7. Click on "Manage" located at the top left.
8. Click on "Finish burning".
Windows will start burning your Mp3 music to your CD.
