How to Burn Music CD with Winamp for Free

Winamp is one of the best free music management applications on earth. Besides providing loads of features to organize your music collection, it also burns CDs. Thanks to a user-friendly interface, burning a CD with Winamp is no big deal. Now just follow the below steps to burn your favorite songs to CD with ease.

Burning music CDs with Winamp

First, please download the free version of Winamp at the official website: http://www.winamp.com/. After downloading, follow the installation wizard to install the program and launch. Usually, a window will pop up, asking you to add some video and audio files from your computer. If the window doesn't show up, you can click "File" > "Add Media to Library" and select the video/audio folder to import files. Now insert a blank CD in your computer's CD-ROM for storing the songs.

Adding Files

To add the files you want to burn, on the main interface of Winamp, go to "View" > "Media Library" and scroll down to the Media Library menu on the left and click on "Blank Disc". You can then click "Add" on the bottom. As you'll see, you have three choices: Files, Folders and Current Playlist.

If you already have the playlist you want to burn, you can choose "Current Playlist". If you don't have one, then click "Files" or "Folders" to bring up the search window. Then browse your computer to find the files or music folders you want to burn and click "OK" to add them for burning.  (Adding files means you want to add an individual song from your computer's hard drive, while adding folders means you would rather select an entire music folder to burn.)

Once you have built your burning playlist, just hit "Burn" to start burning the songs to CD. On the popup window, choose "Enable Burn-Proof Mode", which can ensure the success of the CD burning. You can select the burning speed according to your need. You get what you pay for though, as the speed is restricted in the free version.
