Free MP3, WAV Converter Burning Software Downloads

Of all MP3 free software downloads, many are for burning or transferring and converting MP3's to a blank CD. So perhaps after ripping a CD to MP3's on your computer, you may want to back up the MP3's for safe keeping, or play your audio tracks. Your MP3's can be either burned as MP3 data or a WAV file. Both audio formats can be generally played in stereos, portable MP3 players, and DVD players for your enjoyment.

So there are quite a few basic to semi advanced free MP3 converter burning software to burn to a CD, either in image format or a direct/converted MP3 or WAV process to transfer to CD.

But perhaps a few tips when you do burn your MP3's:

*Use high quality discs if you intend to play them in a stereo/PC/DVD frequently, and check for cleanliness before burning. I use the cheaper bulk discs for short term storage rather than frequent playing.
* Best to turn off the screen saver, CD auto start, and other unnecessary computer background processes before burning. They might interfere with the burn process.
* Perhaps do not use your computer for intensive or multi-tasks, or better still leave it alone during burning.
* If burning the same batches of MP3's again, particularly from multiple folder directories, maybe save the play list, library list, or project list (if those options exists). Then use them to re-burn your MP3's.
* Remember to finalize (or check) if the CD has been finalized, to allow the CD to play in certain stereos/CD players. Multi-session discs are generally saved for adding more MP3's later, prior to finalizing the disc.
* Might be better to use a slower burn (i.e. write at 2x, 4x, rather than much higher) speeds to prevent errors, particularly if the CD/DVD drive is newer than the computer. The computer might be too slow to transfer the MP3's to the CD drive's laser.
* Perhaps defrag and clean out excess data files, registry fragments, prior to burning. Any data transfer might occur from scattered locations, increasing the potential for a burn error.
* Do store your CD's adequately - ideally in their own cases. Some of mine have stuck to plastic covers in their pouches, and flaked with blemishes if stored upon one another in a spindle pack.
* Consider another additional storage medium for MP3 back up, e.g. a USB drive, flash drive, a server, or a online site (if allowed). Then perhaps use a catalogue MP3 software for easy organization, search, tagging, and retrieval of your MP3's.
* Also - When visiting a freeware manufacturer's site for a free MP3 or WAV converter burning software download, take your time. You might accidentally click on their paid "plus" software packages, or an advertisement. I have seen paid versions similar in appearance to the free version, which is some times located and buried at the bottom of the page.
