CD Burning for Windows 7
First, insert a blank CD into your CD-Rom writer drive. You should see a popup like the one below. Click on the "Burn files to disc" option.
Another prompt will appear and this time asking you to choose between the two options of burning. The default is the “mastered” option which lets you burn files traditionally – the burned files are read only files so you will not be able to edit or remove them after burning.
The other option is the “live file system” where you can save files like on a USB flash drive – it means you can save, edit and delete files on the disc anytime. The disadvantage is that it is not compatible with players outside XP, Vista and Windows 7.
In this window, enter the title of the disc then click "Next".
You should see your drive on Explorer with a label that says “drag files to folder…”
Using Windows 7’s side by side snap view position the window above to the left side and another window to the right side. This way you can see the files being added up as you drag files from the right Explorer window to the left.
Click the “burn to disc button”
You may edit the title of the disc or adjust the recording speed. By default it will choose the recording speed supported by your disc. Click the next button to begin the burning process.
The progress bar will show you how much time is needed for the burning process.
