Saving files to a CD with Windows 8

Hey everyone!

I'm having trouble figuring out how to save files (text documents, photos) to a CD with Windows 8. I've found online sources that referenced the use of a "disc burner", so I'm not sure if I need some other kind of software, but I'm just trying to work with the programs that already come installed with Windows 8. I'd really appreciate some help.

Thanks!

    For your use, all you really need to to is drag and drop your desired files from their directories to the optical disc directory (accessed via explorer). There is no need to use third party software when backing up data files for use on yours or another PC, as there is no need to create an ISO. This will in effect treat the CD as a USB drive with roughly 700mb of capacity. ISOs are typically used for the storage of A/V files for play on a CD/DVD/Blu Ray player. They can also be used to create bootable software media.
