I may be wrong but I don't think that you can do this. You need to download (I'm assuming from the internet) to your HDD (presumably C). Then if you want to you could use your CD burner program to copy to CD.

Personally, in My Documents I've created a folder called "Downloads" for this purpose.

What are you downloading? you can't download straight to a disc,you would need to save it usually to your desktop and then using the burning software that came with your writer to burn to disk.
