How to Burn CDG & MP3 to Play in a Karaoke Machine

Updated July 20, 2017

You can burn CDG and MP3+G files to a CD so they can be played in a karaoke machine. CDG and MP3G files include the lyrics as well as the audio tracks for a song. Windows includes a native burning utility to assist you in writing the audio files from your hard drive to a disc. The burner has the capability to write files in the "Mastered" format so the disc can be read by standalone players and other computers.

Insert the blank CD into your disc drive.

Click the "Burn Files to Disc Using Windows Explorer" in the AutoPlay dialogue that appears to open the "Burn a Disc" window.

Create the name for the disc in the "Disc Title" field and click "With a CD/DVD player." An empty disc folder appears.

Open the folder that contains the CDG and MP3+G files you want to burn. Drag the files into the empty disc folder. Click the "Burn To Disc" button on the toolbar once the files are completely copied into the folder to begin burning the disc. Your computer will notify you once the disc is finished.
