Thanks to all for the advice! I have to use CD-R temporarily because the mini HD is getting worse by day and I don't want to lose the files on it... and they won't fit on my Dell mini. (Hitachi will take its sweet time replacing the defective mini HD.)
DrageMester thanks for the info; I wasn't sure if WMP had its own way of doing things or not, so I'll use the route you suggested... unless my computer HD doesn't have enough space to temporarily hold files while burning? Will have to do 'em a few at at time, I guess.. good thing it can do multi-session!
geno888, the pen drive sounds like a good option, but Hitachi owes me a new hard drive anyway (this one is only a couple months old! Hope the replacement doesn't have the same defect...).
(sighs) I need a whole new computer anyway. This one was a gift, but had only 7 GB, most of which was already used up by the OS and essential programs! And it seems to have a memory leak, and isn't functioning right since yesterday (maybe memory is too low? CPU usage keeps jumping and it keeps freezing up.. But that's a problem for another thread...) But hey, deanimator, at least it's black!
