I'm sure it does make sense, but If i copy a file to a USB stick, I plug in the stick and drag the file to it, job done. Why do they confuse burning a CD with that?

That's why they speak of "LIKE", not that it is the same.
Every OS has there merits or strange common sense.
I never did understand why unmounting a disk on a Mac, you have to through it in the basket.
I don't want to delete the data on it.
If you use that typical mode of "USB", a first "fresh" CD shall be "formatted". Afterwards it is just in the same way as using a USB-stick. Drag the files, and it shall be copied to the CD. Exactly in the same way as a USB-stick. Only the time to copy can vary depending to CD write speed.

Files that are there but greyed out, or they have one of your original file names but start with an underscore eg


Till yet not found these files in Win8.
Only if I drag files (not the USB-method, but the mastering method), in first degree it is not burned yet, it shows up as "shortcut" files. After CD is burned, they show up as real files.
