I'm unfortunately not fluent in Spanish (in fact, not at all). If 
somebody wants to take on this and translate things, this would be very 
helpful, though. Another thing might be to put the links into Google 
Translate, but this won't necessarily result in a sensible translation.

Was he trying to burn onto the CD with Blueberry? This shouldn't be 
needed, he can just use his favorite disc burning application.
