Use the following instructions to copy your music:

Copy audio files from the hard disk to an audio CD

1 In Windows Explorer, choose the files that you want to copy to the audio CD, and then click the Copy to Audio CD Web View task

2 In WMP, verify that the files that you wish to copy are in the playlist and that they are selected

3 Click Copy Music

Note: You can copy .wma, .mp3, and .wav file types to an audio CD.

Change audio CD copying options

2 On the Tools menu, click Options, and then on the Copy Music tab, you can modify the following options:• Copy Music to This Location:• Change: Use this setting to set the folder into which you will copy the music files

• Advanced: Use this setting to configure the naming of the audio files

• Copy Settings:• File Format: Use this setting to choose the format into which you will copy the files The default is Windows Media Audio (WMA), or you can use other file formats that you have installed

• Protect Content: Use this setting to specify the use of digital licensing for tracks that you copy from a CD By licensing a file, you protect the author's copyright by preventing the file from being played on a different computer

• Copy Music at This Quality: Use this setting to set the bit rate in which to encode the music You can encode .wma files in a bit rate from 48 kilobits per second (Kbps) to 192 Kbps

If the same problem persist, just reinstall the software of your CD Burner and try again.
