For eight years, I have been copying my audio files to the CD drive, which
is then followed by the computer offering to burn the CD with Windows Media
Player, and I've successfully done it many times. The one time I didn't was
my mistake, because of the surprising differences between Windows XP and the
newer versions of Windows. But I've done it with the burner software of
Windows Media Player, because my computer has the needed hardware built in.
I'm glad it had that software!

When burning to a CD I use a program called Nero, which handles this in
its express sub-program with little trouble. I can copy something from
explorer in a standard file tree and paste it into a window in the
program and then burn a CD with minimal effort.

I have been singing gospel and other popular standards in churches,
rest homes, and other small groups for over twenty years.
In the early days, preparing a customized mix for each small group was
easy. Put the cd in the player, put a tape in, and press record. Or I
would put two tapes in a radio, press record and play, and seemlessly
make my mix.
Now, (at least from my point of view), making a mix isn't easy. I have
discovered a program called Cdex, which, when I run it, converts me
files to mp 3's. But where the problem arises is how I can best get
those mp-3 files onto a cd with the fewest and easiest keyboard
commands. The ripping program is mouse-oriented, and can be done by a
sighted person. But what if you want to copy an mp-3 file onto a cd?
And how can that file then be converted into a formatt that can be
played on a standard cd player? For the sake of this I am coining a
phrase radio-ready. How do I convert an mp-3 audio file down-loaded
from the internet onto a cd, with as few steps as possible,
seemlessly, onto a cd and convert it to a radio-ready formatt using
the key-board, by myself? Similarly, how do you convert songs from cd
to cd, also in as few steps as possible? Are there recording machines
that duplicate from cd to cd, so I can maybe avoid the computer?
Please, please respond to this question. It is very urgent. If you are
a musician who struggle with these issues and can share your stories,
please post to the list. If you are a musician who has answer to share
with your questioning brothers and sisters, please post. I sent out a
message earlier this week about Real Player cloud that generated
absolutely no response, and this issue with my music ministry and
accompaniment tracks is even more important. Thank you ahead of time.
P.S. If this list is not the best place to post your questions please
tell me that as well. Also, if you are a person with answers, could
you provide your phone number and the time you would be available so
I could maybe talk to you about these things? Again, thank you for
your response. I look forward to starting a lively discussion among
list members who have had a variety of experiences.
