This document applies to HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario notebooks that came with Microsoft Windows 98, Me, and XP.
Creating a CD is often called "burning" a CD. To burn CDs, software is needed to work with your CD-RW or DVD+RW drive. This document explains how to use Adaptec's Easy CD Creator or HP Record Now or Sonic RecordNow! software to create data compact discs (CDs).
PCs that came with Windows XP may use either HP Record Now or Sonic RecordNow! or Easy CD creator 5.
PCs that came with DVD+RW drives use HP RecordNow, Sonic RecordNow or Sonic myDVD to burn to DVDs as Windows XP does not support burning to DVDs directly like it does to CDs.
PCs that came with Windows 98 or Me use Easy CD Creator.
