I have a CD burner and I am running WinNT. What is the best (i.e. easiest and most efficient) free software to use for burning mp3 files on to a CD so that I can play them from a CD player? What are the steps involved? Can WinAmp do this? Thanks

Download Nero Burning ROM.
It will automatically convert .MP3's to a .WAV and burn them to a CD.  It's pretty easy to use too. If you are running WinNT, then you should be knowledgable enough with computers and software to figure out the process. :)  Like I said it's really easy.  Good luck man.

Try MP3 to CD. http://www.zy2000.com/down.htm This is one of the smallest software in size, it's also easy to use, very easy.

My CD software will burn .wav files onto a CD. Now I just need to know the procedure to convert MP3 into WAV format.

Download winamp (www.winamp.com) it has a disk writer plugin so you can play the mp3 and it will make a wav for you.

Wouldn't DrPcKen deserve some of this points?. He's mentioned "convert MP3 into WAV. Looking at your original question, you asked MP3 into CD or on CD. you should know that there are 2 ways of doing this. One is very easy, software like Mp3 to CD will burn MP3's into CD without having to go through converting step. And the other way is converting MP3's into WAV's then burn WAV's into CD as in Audio format.

Woops! I didn't see that. I've increased the points to 300 because I need a followup answer.

I got the Disk Writer plugin to work and have successfully burnt the CD. Now how do I revert back to normal output from WinAmp? The Disk Writer plugin doesn't have any options or a disable button. Ever since I selected a directory for .wav file output, every MP3 file I play gets dumped there as a .wav file and doesn't output the music to the speakers.

Ok, since you want an answer.
You just change it back to wav out or direct output and it wont write to the disk.
