    The files have to be downloaded into Winrar software first and then be extracted to the hard drive. Once on the hard drive, they can then be dragged and dropped into Windows Media Player or I assume, Nero, to burn a CD-R. The zip files are probably already MP3 files, and that will show when you see them on the hard drive (the icon will appear as MP3). That is the way that I do it. Did this help? I hope everything I've written here is accurate, maybe someone better informed could add more.

    Yes, the desktop. The C: drive. They need to be extracted from Winrar and put into a separate folder on the hard drive. From that folder, you can drag them into WMP to burn a CD.

    "EXTRACT TO" is an icon button at the top of WINRAR that allows you to take the MP3 files out of WINRAR and put them in a folder on your hard drive, so that you can drag them to WMP to burn a CD-R.
