Burn mp3 files to disc

by 1Chris / November 7, 2014 6:17 AM PST

I have a few sets of mp3 files I want to burn to disc. I highlight them in Windows 7 Explorer window and click Burn at the top. Now, "you have files waiting to be burned to disc", without a clue as how to proceed.
Somehow I got to Windows Media player and it started burning - but it was the wrong files. I couldn't stop it, couldn't cancel it, couldn't open the cd drawer. The two files that were burned to disc to in fact play in my car cd player. How to get the right files to burn?

Microsoft's CD recording has been hit or miss for me so I use CDBURNERXP which has very nice tutorials so I'll pause here.

I was about to install this and saw a review "Open Candy is spyware". Ever run across this or know how to deal with it?

So you saw the "Default installer (Without OpenCandy)" on which
A guy in the forum there recently asked "Is there no more minimal version... Can we now use the adfree/adwarefree/3rdpartycrapfree normal version?" I don't see it either.
