I'm on the hunt for some dependable software to burn mp3's. Prefer a full program rather than a free trial, and something that is cost efficient. (Free!)

Any of our members have any insight to offer?

I gotta hand it to you. You want free burning software.... and you ask for 'pointers'....rofl...

Dude, ill get banned if i answer how I would like to.

But i'll saddle up and have a search for a 'free' burner for you.

I'm more than capable of finding a program. But I am asking our members if they are familiar with one that might stand out.

Dude, ill get banned if i answer how I would like to.

Oh please do. I ask an honest question, and for some reason you feel obligated to come in and try to offend me.

...Moving on.

No dude i wasn't making fun of you.... I was having a laugh at myself more than any thing else.

I live in an area of the UK that when some one asks for free stuff... well its kinda hot off the press so to speak..

I apologise if you thought i was making fun of you in any way.

And to answer your question, i used this programm before i got my finances sorted and could afford cheeta cd / dvd burner.

Its actually very compact and efficient, so well worth a try if its what your after.

I use the Creative software that came with my sound card, an Audigy II.

What's wrong with just using the Windows Media Player that is part of XP?
- Open a folder containing the .mp3 files.
- CTRL-A and Select those you wish to burn
- Choose "Copy to Audio CD" from the task pane on the left.

Windows Media player opens, goto the Burn tab, click Burn CD.

Just curious chissler, I know your very familiar with Windows, but as long as the files aren't DRM protected it works fine.

Well my apologies. I read your post a few times, scratching my head and trying to figure out the true message behind your post.

The ocean between us causes us to perceive things in different ways.

I appreciate the help, and again my apologies for not giving you the benefit of the doubt.

(Initially I had, I edited my post)

I'm going to have a look at WMP now 12m8, but does it burn Data Cd's?

I'd rather drop 100+ songs on the disc, rather than 18.

Windows Media doesn't, but XP has the necessary capabilites built-in.

If you have two drives, cd/cdburner, it's easier and faster.

With two drives:
- insert source disk to drive A
- insert blank CD into drive B
- go to my computer
- open [access] drive A and "select all", then right click and choose "copy"
- open [access] drive B [the burner], then right click and choose "paste".
- you should be prompted with a "You have files waiting to be written to CD" balloon ... click on it and follow the prompts.

If you're simply looking to burn .mp3 or data files to a CD:

- open the folder containing the files.
- Go to "EDIT" and choose "Select All", or the particular files, then right click and select "Send To", choose your CD burner drive.
- you'll get the "You have files waiting to be written to CD" balloon.
- Click on it and choose "Write these files to CD" from the task pane on the left.

The native CD burning capabilities in XP was one of the better improvements, IMO.

Very simple and works well.

- right-click on a given file or set of files.
- choose send to, and select the cd writer drive
- up comes the "files waiting to be written" prompt.
- click "Write these files to the cd" from the task pane.
- follow the prompts

Burning was never an issue I tackled, I appreciate your insight.

XP does support burning to disk and they licensed tech from Roxio for this addin to Windows. But I've had problems with it in past myself and I find that the interface is well very spartan. But if you have simple jobs to do and don't need to use it much then it is a good choice to go with the drag and drop feature in Windows XP itself.

Hey Chissler, you can use iTunes if they are music files. You can make a playlist and burn a cd. It's free and you don't need an ipod to use it.
