Well, you just go to icon in your taskbar or open up the program, add files using the wizard, compress, and then burn onto a disc! At least, that's what I've done...

Winrar and winzip don't do to much, i doubt you'd be able to get all your media on 1 cd-r. It took me almost 30cd-r's when I tried it. You'd be much better with one of those USB storage cards.

1st copy the .rar or .zip file (the music) Then go to my computer and then to the empty cd (d: or whatever it is on ur pc) and paste it there. Then on the left there is an option to burn the files to the cd. Says something like click here to burn the temporary files to the cd.

^^^think that this only works with win XP. It's really not that hard to burn a file to a disc.

And there is a choise of downloading some software that enables u to burn cds. Nero being my favorite. (search google for the download)
