Using Movavi CD Burning Software: A Step-by-Step Guide

Although they’re less popular than they used to be, CDs are still used to store information such as audio and video files. To save your collection of MP3s and other data this way, you need three things: a CD-RW drive, a recordable disc, and good CD burning software. Standard Windows options to burn a CD are lacking in functionality or otherwise leave much to be desired. However, there’s a simple solution to this problem! Movavi Video Suite includes a powerful CD writer that will meet the needs of most users. The program provides one of the best and fastest ways to create multiple copies of your favorite albums or movies to share with friends. CD recording has never been so easy!

Download our top-rated CD burner for Windows to start writing now! To learn how to burn a CD, see the instructions below.

Before You Start: Download Movavi Video Suite

Launch the distribution file and follow the installation procedure. Once installation is complete, the program will open automatically.

Note that the disc burning module has to be downloaded and installed separately from the rest of Video Suite. Go to the Audio tab and click Burn audio to CD. In the window that opens, click Download. After a short installation procedure, you’ll be able to use the burner app.

Now, you have a number of options. Choose the one you want to move to the appropriate instructions:

On the right panel in the recorder interface, enter a name for your disc in the Disc name box. Choose either Audio CD (for better sound quality and larger file sizes) or MP3 CD (for more compressed files) in the Mode area.

Now, move the cursor to the Options area. Choose the type of your recordable disc – CD or Mini CD – from the Disc Type list. The relevant disc capacity is shown in parentheses. If you’ve chosen MP3 CD, you also select the desired quality level in the Quality list or click the Custom button below to manually adjust specific parameters. In the case of Audio CD, the Quality list is not available.

Then, move the cursor to the Options area, where you can set the video standard to either NTSC or PAL (depending on your location).

In case of Video CD, other options will be displayed as dimmed. If you’ve selected Super Video CD, you can also choose the quality level from the Quality list.
