How to Burn a CDG for a Karaoke CD
When singing karaoke, the discs are as important as the microphone and karaoke player (Microphone image by from

CD+G files are a format for karaoke discs that are played in external karaoke players. The files contain both audio (the instrumental backing of a song) and graphics (the scrolling words). To create a CDG CD, you will need to use a burning program that handles these files, as well as a CD burner that can handle these file formats (most modern CD-Rs can).

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch a CDG burning program. Microstudio and Power CD+G burner are popular software options. Both can burn CDG files to a disc, as well as rip karaoke files from other karaoke discs for making mixes.

  2. 2

    Browse the computer for the CDG files that you want to burn to the disc. Import them into the program.

  3. 3

    Insert karaoke discs into the computer's CD-R drive and rip the desired files onto the computer. They will automatically import into the program.

  4. 4

    Insert a blank CD into the computer's CD-R drive. Wait for several seconds for the computer to register the blank medium.

  5. 5

    Press the "burn to disc" button in the karaoke burning program to begin the burning process. The computer's CD-R drive will burn the CDG files directly onto the disc.
