Too vague.

When you want to burn a CD there are many types of CDs we can make. Music or AudioCD, data CDs, variations on data CDs and Video on CD. With each type the steps change.

But you're right, you need a CD recorder and media first.

So Windows media is my recorder, right? CD-ROM, my reader? so i need a writer or/ and/ burner?

Things you need

In reply to: Tunes are in MP3 format.................

1. A CD- or DVD-burner (that's the device to burn the disk). If you say 'writer' it's OK, but 'burner' is the commonly used term.

2. A program to burn the files onto the CD or DVD. Depending on what your source is and what your destionation should be, you can use different programs with different detailed instructions. Burning mp3's, example, as mp3's allows you to have approximately 700 minutes = 11 hours of music on a cd in mp3-format, but not all cd-players will be able to play it. If you convert them to standard cd-audio format, it will be some 70 minutes of music, but it can be played on practically all cd-players (except some older ones that don't accept burned cd's at all).
