What is CD Burning?
a CD means using a CD writable drive to record a custom CD.
Nearly all new computers come with the necessary hardware and software
to start burning CDs.
- An industrially pressed CD contains a series of bumps and depressed
grooves to represent digital 0's and 1's. Bumps are not reflected
back at the laser and are read as a 0.
- A consumer-grade CD burner drive burns a blank CD by shooting
a laser through a layer of dye sandwiched between a plastic and
aluminum coating. The laser turns this dye a darker color so that
it does not reflect light (representing a 0). Rewritable CDs contain
a compound that turns opaque after cooling when heated by the laser
inside the CD-RW drive. A rewritable drive can rewrite a CD-RW by
heating up this compound again and again.
- A blank CD-R or CD-RW can hold up to 700 megabytes of information,
which equates to about 74 to 80 minutes of songs - however, a CD
can hold more songs at lower quality or less music as quality increases.
- A CD writable drive cannot burn to a DVD disc. A user who cannot
fit their files onto a CD should try downgrading the quality of
the file (if possible).
- After burning a CD-R or CD-RW, a person cannot add files to unused
portions of the disc. If using a CD-RW, the user has to erase the
entire CD and burn it again.
Audio CD Burning Guide
1. Launch CyberPower Disc
Creator. Then, insert a blank CD to the CD drive,
click the "Audio CD" and choose "Audio
CD Burner" to run the burner wizard.
The burner scans your system for the available devices. Choose one
of the usable burning drives from the list (the
system will select it by default if there is only one). If you plugged
in new devices or changed disc in the drive, you can update
the devices list by clicking "Refresh"
3. Click "Add File(s)..."
to input music files you want to burn to the burning
list. You are allowed to click "Remove" or "Remove All"
button to remove one or all music files. It enables you to use
CD-Text to edit title & artist text.
4. Select one burning
mode from Track-AT-Once, Session Track-AT-Once,
Disc-AT-Once PQ and Disc-AT-Once raw P-W. The test mode
is used to simulate burning for checking errors. Then, choose an
appropriate burning speed. Click "Next"
to start burning and wait until the process bar reaches 100%. The
disc will eject after the audio CD has been completely burned.
Although the burning speed is optional, but the most important
factors that affects speed are file size & the
ability of burner drive and your computer.
