Hi All:
I have never done music related CD.
Quite frankly, I am very naive and new to everything as to
music downloading and copying music/song.

Then, I have two questions to ask before launching music downloading
from the Internet.
(1) How to download a song from the Internet by using Roxio 6?

(2) How to copy a song into the blank CD by using Roxio 6?

Thanks for your help in advance.

I always download the song first. Then burn the song to CD. However, it is possible that you may not be able to do it with Roxio, because of DRM restrictions.  You may have to use Windows Media Player instead.

It depends on what kind of extension it has.  m4p's AAC's and m4a's are Quicktime/itunes

Is it a streaming song?? I never used Roxio 6 for streaming music, if it's even possible. what is the site??

The best way to burn your purchased music on a cd is to use the native software from where you purchase it. Roxio will not burn copy protected cd's. Burn it to a cd from the site you select, just follow directions from whatever site you go too.

Hi:
Thanks for the quick response.  I really appreciate it.

As to the Windows Media Player, .... it's perfectly fine to me.

Only my wish  :)  is that I want to download a song which does not sell at
any local stores and it's only available on downloading from the Internet.

It's Sport-related song, a kind of amateur but still so terrific voice to listen.

My question is now;
How to download a song from the Internet and copy it into the blank CD by
using Windows Media Center?

Also,

After all finished, is it possible for me to listen a song by CD Player/Boombug?

Thanks for your help.

The question is where are you downloading the song from?If it's a site like ITunes,WalMart or the likes then you need to burn it to a cd with whatever program that site uses.After you do that the first time then you'll be able to rip it to your hard drive as a .wav,.mp3 or other format.If you do that then you can use Roxio to make another compilation cd.If it's only one song you're getting use a CD/RW to burn it the first time so you can erase the disc afterwards.The reason you have to use the sites burning program (whatever it is) is just as msil217 says,DRM (Digital Rights Management),which is a sites way of putting protection on their tunes.
If you want to recreate the tune faithfully,record it to a cd using the sites software then rip it to your harddrive as a .wav file.

Hi:
Thanks for the response.  I truly appreciate your help.

The web site is called 'You Tube,' and there is a song I want to download
and copy it into the blank CD so that I can listen this song in my car.
:)

Is it possible for me to accomplish this task by using Windows Media Player
or any other form?

Thanks again.

You Tube is a Video site. There is no way to burn it to CD as audio without using a sound recording program.

You would have to start the video over, set the recording program to record the sound, (What U Hear) then after you are done, save as an mp3, WAV, or WMA. (I use Total Sound Recorder, but there are others. Roxio's Sound Editor might work)

After you save it as an audio file, you then can burn to an Audio CD to listen to on any CD audio player.

I may be able to do this conversion to audio for you, if I can find the vid in question.

Try searching on Google for the "artists" name, and see if you can find a "audio cd" that is available.

Dpending on what kind of sound card you have you may be able to pull this off doing what msil says.If the video will play using Windows Media Player (or whatever source) you can start Sound Editor and see if any of your inputs will make the meters move.If they do then you should be able to record that audio into whatever format you choose.Once it is captured turn around and burn that file to a cd.

I recorded it with Audio Central, saved as mp3, and you can download from here (at the bottom, select "Free"  and follow the prompts. Any problems, I could try to email it to you. (if you give your email addy in a private message)

When you select "Free", you will have to wait about 20 seconds or so, then enter a code (3 characters) then you will be able to download.
