Complete Guide to Burning CD / DVD in Windows
As I discussed above, CD is not the favorite storage media at this time. After all, modern PCs rarely have CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs.
Even so, CD / DVD can be an option for those of you who want to store data at affordable prices even though they don’t have much capacity.
In general, the type of CD for burning is divided into 2, namely CD-R (Recordable) and CD-RW (ReWritable). CD-R can only be used once, so it cannot be formatted for later insertion of other data.
Meanwhile, you can format a CD-RW many times if you want to use it to store other data. Because of this flexible function, CD-RWs are more expensive.
In this article, I have divided the tutorial into several sections, namely for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 8, to Windows 10.
