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
