Most of the portable players covered in this area have relied on expensive memory chips to store skip free music in diminutive shells. This is the reason players are so expensive, as the majority of the cost for these players is for memory. As long as memory stays expensive, so too will the cost of the players. If you want to bypass this nasty little problem, you can enter the world of ridiculously cheap storage media with the added ability of storing 700 megabytes on one 50-cent disc. Welcome to the world of portable CD players, and with a little preparation, you can groove to the same digital MP3 files while skating, for a fraction of what your buddy paid.

Step 1: Start with a newer PC
If you have an older computer, you should consider what is required in utilizing the CD-RW (Re-writer). If you have a slower processor and limited memory, it would be a good idea to upgrade to a newer computer before you begin buying and installing a CD-RW. A Pentium II 200 with 64 megabytes of memory is the minimum you should have in your computer to assure smooth CD writes.

Step 2: Writing vs. Re-writing
If you want to put music on CDs and then re-record music on them later on, then you should invest in a CD Re-writer (CD-RW). If you want to put on the music on your discs only once, then you should get a CD Recorder. Although CD-RW drives are a bit more expensive, they are good for backing up your computer's data.

Step 3: Know your writer's format
Be careful when choosing a format for your CD writer. If you are like most people, you can choose an IDE format which is a bit slower but easier to set up. If you are a power user, then you can opt for the faster SCSI format. If you do so, make sure you have a motherboard that has a SCSI interface (or buy a PCI slot adapter).

Step 4: Remember the software
When considering which CD-R to get, remember that the big name firms such as Hewlett Packard tend to ship their machines with lots of bundled software, which is the real key in how well the burner will work. Look for titles such as Adaptec Easy CD creator 4.0 that will ship with the burner.
