First, place an empty CD-Rom into your computer’s CD drive. I'm going to proceed with my answer assuming you have Windows on your computer.
If you have successfully downloaded an embroidery design to a location on your computer, you can locate it there, and send it to your CD at that point.
This illustration uses Windows 10:
If your design is in your "downloads" folder, you can open the downloads folder and use the copy function to move it to your CD. Highlight your design, as shown, then click the "copy to" button at the top.
When you click "copy to" you get a list of options. If you don't see your CD drive in the list, click "choose location" at the bottom of the list. This opens a new window. Scroll down until you see "This PC" and the list of drives on it. Below, my CD Rom Drive (E:) is shown . I highlight it (in blue) and click "copy."
Then it will copy your file to the CD-Rom drive. Next you need to burn the files to the disc.
In fact, a window telling you that you have files waiting will probably appear each time you copy a file to the disc. You don’t need to click the balloon until you are ready. Continue copying until you have all the files you wish on the disc and are ready to finalize and burn.
You can choose to burn your disc at any time, from the “This PC” or “My Computer” window. Just right-click over the CD-Rom drive, and the option to burn will appear in a list.
In the burn window, you will be prompted to name your CD and finish the burn process.
There are different formatting options for your CD: “Mastered” if you want it to run in older CD drives (earlier than Windows XP, or in non-computer CD drives) or with the “Live File System format” if (for instance) all of your computers and peripherals currently use the Live File System (Windows 10, Vista, XP, etc).
Complete instructions for this in Windows are here at the Microsoft site:
