    "This is an extremely long how-to on how to place music onto a CD and then back again into MP3. I would most likely just watch a video on YouTube instead of reading through all of this. It is almost common knowledge of what is being explained. I suppose it could be useful for younger or older generations of people who do not know how to write CD's. "
