Instructions for transferring data to disk media (for which the casual term "burn" has gained acceptance) will depend on the software used. Most of these applications will have precise instructions in their HELP file.

It is interesting to see the connexions between usages of "to burn"

http://www.bartleby.com/61/31/B0563100.html

The AHD (4th ed.) includes as the last useage entry:"14. To record data on (a compact disk)." I suppose this usage arose by analogy to burning a brand on cattle or to engrave by burning into wood or soft metal.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
