How to Transfer Ebooks to CD
Saving e-books on CD-ROM (cd"s image by Horticulture from Fotolia.com)

To transfer your e-book to a CD-ROM, you need to save the e-book to a folder in your computer and download it to a CD-ROM via a CD burning software application. If your e-books are stored in your iPod or MP3 player, you need to download the e-book file from your handheld mobile device to your computer and save it to a file and then burn a CD. By storing your e-books on CD-ROM, you create a backup as well as free up the storage space on your machines.

Tips and warnings

  • A CD-ROM can only record up to 700 MB of data or 80 minutes of audio. Test your CD when finished to make sure it burnt properly by inserting into your computer disk drive to view or listen to what you have recorded.
  • Be sure to check copyright laws if you are making replica CDs of an e-book that you did not write.
