To burn your project press the burn button show in figure 6. It is recommended to reduce the burning speed to 4x or 6x as this will reduce the margin for errors and also increase the readability of the disk for picky players. If you have multiple CD/DVD drives or you the burning action does not begin, you may need to select the correct drive in the drive list show in figure 6 (in the example we see a PLEXTOR drive selected).
