Hello, and welcome to bleepingcomputer.com, Genesis2004

You have your own PC now, thats good.
The best way to learn is on your own, with some giudance.
Your post is in the forum where we discuss the (OS) Operating Systems.
So, an appropriate question I ask you is which version od Windows do you use?

Making it possible to do a lot of things.

The next thing to identify, so we can help further, is what optical drive(s) do you have?

The Nero program will require the hardware that uses optical lasers to "burn" information to CD-R, or DVD-R as the case my be.

A CD-Rom can read the information, allowing you to place that information (data) on
one or both of the hard drives, bu the -RW means "read & write".
The writing of data to CD is where Nero excels.

Data can be any number of different types.
All files have extensions listed to the right of the "dot" in the filename.
Those extensions indicate basically what "kinf" of file it is.
What program made it, which program can 'use" it.

An example would be music files.
Some of them end in .wmp which means it is a WindowsMediaPlayer file.
A CD when placed in the "tray" would likey mean a brief whirring noise,
(the spinning of it) followed by a dialog box asling what you would like to do with it.

(assuming certain probabilities)

What you tell the OS to do amounts to "open in which program?".
Perhaps it will highlight on a list the Windows Media Player, so your choice is easy.

Do that and the WMP will open, and the music is r4eady to play.
Same would likely occur if the file were a .wav like those you buy or check out from the library. The WMP program "knows" how to read those files to.

A CD-Rom will do all of that, but if you want to transfer the files to a new CD,
you need the CD-RW (or DVD-RW).

If you first transfer the files by copying them to hard drive, generally a folder will be set up for the file(s) to be placed. You might need to do that yourself.

Without going any further with specifics, I'd like to hear from you in a reply
so we can better address your initial question(s).
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...
