Clicking this balloon will open up your CD drive showing the files ready to be written.  Select File from the top toolbar menus and left click on “Write these files to CD”.  If you miss the balloon popup, double click My Computer and right click on CD drive and select “Write these files to CD”.


Clicking this will open the CD writing wizard.  This will walk you through labeling your CD and will ask you to insert a blank disc.

When the files have been written (burned) the CD will pop out and the writing wizard will ask you if you would like to burn another CD with that same information.  If so, check the box and put another blank CD in the drive.  If not, click FINISH.
