Forever in my Memory...
In its clutches...
Well, it's a job...

sometimes I just hate computers, the easier they get, the harder they get...;)
Okay so I got the whole music album now,
All I can say that I did it myself and wow,
But now I got to start with the computer an angered row,
I cannot figure how to burn it off to my CD,
On my computer I want to be angry and pee…
Everything seems to work,
Maybe the computer is just being a jerk,
Can’t be me, I swear I have been really nice,
Very little have I hit the damn thing or swore,
Damn but the only time I did, my left palm is so sore…
Hey, if you know how to a CD burn,
Maybe you could me learn,
Sooner or later I am sure I will find out in turn,
Possibly before I die and end up in an urn…

I was able to burn my CD's without a problem. Here are the steps you should follow:
1) Select a nice clear area in your backyard
2) Forage around your neighborhood for lots of dead, dry wood, and make a large pile of said wood in the area mentioned in step 1 above.
3) Carefully lay as many CD's as you wish to burn on the center of the pile of wood mentioned in step 2 above. Keep in mind that your CD's will likely burn in a bottom-to-top sequence.
4) Pour gasoline all over the pile of wood mentioned in step 2 above and all over the CD's mentioned in step 3 above. For best results, do not spill gasoline on your pants or shoes, but if you do, don't worry about it.
5) Ideally, you would not have chosen a steep hill for the area mentioned in step 1 above, but if you are that naive, then--just for kicks--stand on the downhill side as you pour liberal quantities of the gasoline mentioned in step 4 above on the pile of wood mentioned in step 2 above.
6) Stand back about ten feet from the pile of wood mentioned in step two above. Take your shirt off, get your lighter out, and set said shirt on fire.
7) Gingerly toss the burning shirt mentioned in step 6 above onto the pile of wood mentioned in step 2 above.
8) Scream, "burn, baby, burn!" at the top of your lungs. If you had chosen the optional "just for kicks" variation mentioned in step 5 above, then you might want to run as fast as you can away from the pile of wood mentioned in step 2 above, because not only are your CD's burning, but you probably are too.
I hope this helped, Ed. This is the only sure-fire way of burning CD's that I know.
Your friend, Scott

|You just described one of the reasons I became Microsoft certified. If you tell me the name of your computer and type ie: Compaq Presario Sr150. and I can look up your burning software and send you a word doc. on how to use it. Most lap tops and towers are using Nero (one Sherry suggested) which is an easy program to use.

|First, you need burning software like Nero or Roxio and of course you need a burner. Once you have loaded the music onto your computer, put it all in a folder. If you have Roxio, open "drag-to disk" Click on the icon in the lower right corner of your computer. Now open your music folder and highlight all the items in it. Holding down your left mouse button, drag the files onto the drag to disk utility. Make sure you have a cd in the burner and Roxio will "prepare" the disk and burn the music onto the CD. If you have a different burning software, let me know the name and I will try to send you the info on that too.
