The Burn CD Wizard walks you through burning a CD from a CD Master. You can start the Burn CD Wizard from the Manage Saved CD Masters window or by selecting File:Burn CD: Burn CD From Master.... It may also appear automatically after you create a CD Master in the Create CD Master Wizard.

If you do not have any CD Masters to burn, start with the Create CD Master Wizard documentation or, for a more comprehensive introduction, our tutorials.

Using the Burn CD Wizard

Burn CD 1: Introduction Step 1: Introduction
The first step of the wizard simply provides an introduction to the CD burning processes. Read this and then click Next.
Burn CD 2: Name Your CD Master Step 2: Select Your CD Master
This step lets you select the master you wish to burn. You may choose any master associated with your session.
Note: if you opened the Burn CD Wizard from the Manage CD Masters window, or if it has opened automatically as a result of completing a burn operation, you have already selected a master, so this step will not be displayed.
Burn CD 3: Select CD Burner Step 3: Select CD Burner
This step lets you select a CD burner (if you have more than one) and adjust a few settings that may improve compatibility with some burners. For example, you may turn off CD Text and UPC and ISRC writing if your burner does not support these features or if you do not require them. You may also limit the lengths of your pregaps for increased comparability. A track's pregap is the (usually silent) time before the track starts, where the CD time counter displays negative numbers. If you have extended the pregaps of any of the tracks on your CD Master, many CD burners may be unable to burn the disk. Moreover, Apple has recently reduced its support for extended pre-gaps, so if you have trouble burning CDs, you may want to select Limit Pregaps to 2 Seconds (Most compatible). Most of the time, you won't need to adjust anything in this window: just wait until your drive is found and click Next. Note that the ability to write ISRC, UPC, and CD Text data is limited to XO Wave Pro.
Burn CD 4: Select Burn Parameters Step 4: Select Burn Parameters
This step lets you select your burn parameters, such as burn speed. Usually you can simply pick the fastest speed, but some burners produce better results at lower speeds, while others produce better results at higher speeds because the laser power is more consistent. You'll have to experiment with your drive and disks to find out. You may also want to reduce your burn speed if, for example, you'll be doing lots of other things while burning and you want to keep disk and CPU usage from impacting the rest of the system.
