An audio CD can be created by selecting the favorite songs from various audio CDs and write them to a CD-R/RW medium.
Please take note of the following points before creating an audio CD.

Note:
* For Windows® XP user, do not carry out Fast User Switching when writing data to a CD-R/RW medium.
Doing so may cause the writing to fail sometimes.
* Do not start any software when writing data to the CD-R/RW medium (including memory-resident programs such as Screen saver).
* Do not press any key on the keyboard when writing data to the CD-R/RW medium.
* Do not use a CD-R/RW medium with a label on it. Doing so may cause errors or problems in writing.
* Do not connect the CD-R drive to the IDE connector to which the hard disk is connected.
* Do not carry out any operation that may apply load to the Central Processing Unit and the hard disk.
