Can anyone make an icon out of this?

Can anyone make an icon out of this? I made one, but the white square behind the round CD shows, I'd like just the round CD if possible. I don't know how to do transparancy in Photoshop v7.0

.jpegs can't have transparency, so you would have needed to save it as a .png instead for example.

Here's one way to get rid of the white background and make transparent in PS. Pretty much same in something like paint.net, which I did for you here.

Also can make icons using something like icofx, which I also used.

Both transparent .png and .ico are inside zip. Ico looks nice on desktop, not so great pinned on taskbar though.
