How to go from data file to audio file?

How can I go from an Audacity data file that was created from tape recorded voice and create an audio CD of that file–so far Ive tried NERO and that gives me an error message just before the down load is complete. I’ve also tried Real Player and Windows Media Player to copy the file to a CD without results. Any suggestions welcomed. Thanks

Try this page from the Wiki: http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=How_to_burn_CDs

And do use good quality CD-Rs not CD-RWs

Audacity data files aren’t real audio files. Open the original project up in Audacity and Export As WAV. That’s a real audio file and that should burn just fine.
