    I would like to know if it is possible to record onto cd-r's/dvd's/ or whatever the media player visuals with my uploaded music into a say, cd-g/ vcd/dvd format that I could play at a later time from my other players? Is this possible, legal, and how do I do it?

    I am not 100% certain what exactly you are asking.
    Obviously if the music is NOT legally obtained in the first place ie: it is, for example, from a P2P or whatever download then clearly it is NOT legal.
    If the music is legal in the first place, then you would have to explore the licence regarding copying for PRIVATE home use. THis site cannot advise on that matter.

    As to the recording of it onto DVD/CD etc it depends on the nature of the disc that can be writtten to by the hardware and the facilities of the burning software.

    cd-g in its usually accepted use is more complicated and although the CD can usually be played on a computer or DVD/CD player it will not usually recognise the visual stream.

    On the question of how it depends of course on the software program for burning see this link further info is on the right hand side of the page.
