Hey Jayson Bradwell!

If you are using Windows Xp then there is no need of any other software to burn you data on a CD. Windows XP has built-in software to burn the data on a CD.

When you enter a blank CD in CD/DVD Writer, an auto play will prompt. From that auto play, select "Open Writable CD Folder". It will open a blank folder. Drag all your files in this folder which you want to burn. You can also copy those files and paste them in the blank folder. Once you added all the files, on the left hand side, in CD Writing Task section, click on "Write these files to CD". Once you click on it, it will start burning your data on the CD.

After it completes, it will automatically open the folder of burning files.

Your CD is now ready; you can use it on any other PC.

That’s right. Windows XP has its own CD burner that will allow you to burn CDs immediately. You don’t need to install CD burner applications because Microsoft Windows XP has its own built-in CD burner software. But before you can burn a CD, of course, you need to have a CD writer that will burn the discs.

Standard compact disc

Wisely, if you plan on purchasing a CD writer to burn CDs, why not just buy a DVD writer. With a standard CD writer, you are only limited to burning CDs like CD-Rs and CD-RWs. But with a DVD writer, the burning capability is more flexible because you can burn not only CDs but DVDs as well. You can now burn CD-Rs, CD-RWs, DVD-Rs, and DVD-RWs.

A standard compact disc or CD can hold up to a maximum of 700 MB of data while a standard single-layer DVD disc can hold up to 4.7 GB. Dual-layer DVDs can hold up to 8.5 GB.
