A few days back, I had an amusing experience. My neighbor�s kid, Antoine, came to my place with a CD and a cigarette lighter because he wanted me to burn his CD!
There are many people out there who, like Antoine, tend to believe that burning a CD means literally burning the CD. Call it a misnomer, or call it wrong connotation, burning a CD is however, something quite different. It means writing data on a CD.
And to write on a CD a Cd burning program for free is required. A Cd burning program for free uses the laser beams of a CD writer to write on a CD. Data in computers are represented by 0 and 1. So to represent 1, a Cd burning program for free actually burns certain sections on a CD and to represent 0 the Cd burning program for free simply skips the burning process.
Even a few years ago, burning a CD was not as popular as it is today. This is mostly because a CD writer and writable CDs cost much less than what they use to cost earlier. And also, a CD is much more reliable than a floppy disk as far as writing and retrieving data is concerned
Not surprisingly, therefore, the market today is flooded with several Cd burning program for free. Some are free, while some are commercial software and many are OEM software. The most popular of these Cd burning program for free is Nero. Nero is a smart Cd burning program for free. It has an excellent graphical user interface (GUI) which makes burning a CD a child�s play.
Windows XP the latest operating system from Microsoft, to hit the market, even comes with a built-in Cd burning program for free. This Cd burning program for free may not be as advanced as Nero or other Cd burning program for free out there but it still can handle CD writing tasks without a glitch.
