Users have many reasons why they would want to burn their audio files to a CD, such as playing the CD in their cars, road trips or to backup songs onto another CD in case the original is lost or stolen. Windows Media Player copies music that you purchased from an online retailer or from your personal CD collection onto a blank CD-R. You can burn gapless CDs on Windows Media Player, meaning there will be no silence or pause in playback between tracks.
