Like Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 includes the ability to burn CDs without adding additional software. However, this feature isn't enabled by default. Here's how to start the service:
This instructs the server to start the service automatically upon a reboot, but it won't start it for this session, which is why you must also click the Start button.
To burn files to a CD-R or CD-RW on the server, individually select the desired files and/or folders and drag them to the CD burner device. Right-click the device, and choose Write These Files To CD. If you change your mind about burning the CD, right-click the device and choose Delete Temporary Files, which will empty the burn queue.
