I have a piece of software called "Freecorder" which allows you to record
anything that goes through your soundcard on your computer. It records it as
an MP3 file and then you can burn it onto CD.
You can get a free version of this software, but if you purchase the license
it doubles the quality of the recording.

There is another method that eliminates the need to
finalize CDS. I've been doing the audio/video recording
and sound reinforcement for Region 15 for 17 years now,
and when we converted to all digital last year, we found
a few shortcuts to save time and lessen the risk of
lost performance recordings. (We've never lost one)
Record performances to a digital recorder, for example
a Marantz PMD660. Then port to one of two laptops/desktops
using USB for conversion to CD. You can record in MP3,
which eliminates the need for conversion, or as a WAV.
You can even set up a small network at your workstation
to simplify things. My videographer uses a similar
method, recording files and burning to DVD on a
separate server with multiple burners. We typically
deliver all the CDs and DVDs within 90 minutes of
the conclusion of the competition. (One difference
that really impacts the quality in a positive way:
we use a Sony 3-chip professional camera with a
very powerful zoom, allowing us to do quality
closeups from 75' away. We also record a safety to
digital tape in the camera.
For printing, all the retail computer stores carry
printable CDS, and prices are dropping continually. For
a printer, it's tough to beat the Epson series of
printers that are CD capable. Cheap and durable.
If you'd like more details, drop me a line.
