I didn't burn CDs that often because back in the day I didn't have a computer. I remember going over to a few of my friends houses who did have computers and watching them burn mix cds. I had a friend back in the day give me a burned copy of Green Day's American Idiot, and I remember listening to it off and on growing up. I even found a burned Yellowcard Ocean Avenue CD once in the field down the street from my house when I was a teenager. It barely played though since it was super scratched up. :V

I used to burn mix CDs all the time. I used to give them to my friends all the time and I even had some special ones for certain occasions like a friend's birthday or playing it in the car while out on a date. Good times for sure!

I still burn CD's. But I miss the days of missing the first couple words while you hit record to tape a song off the radio. Having a hundred blank cassettes that were all full of songs taped off the radio. Ninety of them having the same songs over and over.

I remember that as well. the worst part about cassettes is that you might not remember if you taped a song on one and didn't remember to tag it and you tape another song n it. That used to annoy me so much.

I used to download music off of Limewire in the mid 2000s and burn them onto CDs. I used to have tons of CDs in a case holder.
