Can I download to my CD burner?

Infopackets Reader Ken H. asks, " Can I download films directly to my burner from the Internet? "

My response:

You can't download files to your CD burner on the fly unless you have DirectCD installed. Even so, I don't recommend downloading and directly burning to CD, mostly because you need a complete file to burn to CD. Since files don't always download 100%, the process of "downloading and burning on the fly" would have problems from the get-go and may end up in a waste of media.

Usually files have to be downloaded to your hard disk, then burned to CD. Once the files have been burned to CD, you can remove them from your hard disk to save space.
