    You can use windows Media Player to "burn" music to a CD.

    You need to use a CD and not a DVD.

    Make sure you are using a music CD, not a data CD. Some devices will burn music onto a data CD, some will not.

    I have never had issues using a regular data cd-r instead of music cd's. I think music cd's are a bunch of bunk. They come as 650mb instead of the 700mb data cd but every cd I have created with regular cd-r plays fine on all the devices I have tried.
    When you buy a cd from the store it comes as CD-DA which is actually tracks of uncompressed wav files. You can't even read the names of the songs if you look at it on a PC, it just says Track 1 Track 2 etc. Also the bitrate of the files you want to create the cd with are important for a quality sound. The best are FLAC files, which are compressed a little but in a way that loses no quality. Remember though, if your making a cd with 192kbps mp3's, the quality is diminished but you can fit a ton of songs on one cd. Some players may not like 50 tracks though. Try a trial of something like Easy CD-DA Extractor which can convert, extract, and create cd's. Do not try converting a 192kbps mp3 file to uncompressed wav or flac though, you can never recover the lost quality by converting up, even though the files will grow in size.
