New window opens, set important value.

Writing speed : slow but sure, I recommend 4x for CD, 1x for DVD.
Finalize disc : I recommend not to check this check box if next time you want to write this CD without losing your previous written data.

Automatically shut down the PC when done : I love this feature so much. When writing completed, PC will be shut down automatically.
Before using this feature, you should do the following things.

Then click Write Disc, wait until it's done.

5. Now you have data written on CD, insert this CD then open CDBurner XP Pro 3. Select option 1, program will ask what you want to do between Continue Disc and Don't Continue Disc

Why does program ask ? Because CD contains Data and CD is not finalized.

Select Continue Disc and follow the writing process as usual.
