Trying to DownLoad FREE Music Know the Basics Here On Burning Music CD´s

If you're reading this section there are two main reasons. First, there is not enough space on your computers hard drive to download more songs, and you don't want to delete your old songs. Second, you want to listen to music downloads on the road, CD player, MP3 player, or an IPOD. Is this possible? Yes, you can now burn MP3's to CDs and listen to music on the road, on your iPOD, MP3 player, and just about anywhere MP3 format is accepted, and yes save space on your computers hard drive without deleting old music. So how do your burn or copy music? Let's go over some basics first. There are two types of CD discs in the industry for CD burners, CDR and CDRW.
CDR's can be burned only once and our permanent, as CDRW is a CD Rewriteable, and can be re-used over and over. With CD-RW's you can delete old music files and burn new music. CDR's are the cheapest compared to CDRW's. It's important to keep in mind that new recorders accept both forms of CD's, though older recorders only accept CDR's. Also, keep in mind that there are discs that are for music use only, these discs can only be used in stereos style burners at home. These discs may not work with your burner software or CD burner. It's better to go with CDR's or CDRW's.
It's very important that your PCs System Memory (RAM), can send audio data to your recorder. Your processor will perform well anywhere from 64 MB to 128 MB of RAM.
Ok, let's talk about the good stuff and how one knows if they can burn a CD or not from their computer. Most computers today come with a CD burner drive. Sometimes there are two CD discs drives, and some times only one. If you only have one drive then check the labels on the drive to see if it reads CD rewriteable. If you still don't know, then check the computers Users Manual. If you are still having trouble contact the manufacture of your PC and supply them with the computers model number. If you don't have a CD burner drive you can purchase an external writeable CD drive from any electronic store.
There are many CD burner software on the web. Usually when you find good software the tendency is to stay with it. You computer should already come with Windows Media Player or Realone Player, or both.
