hi Larry, if you burn your MP3's to a cd as data then you would play your mp3's off your computer using dbpoweramp or other music player software.

some DVD's players also can play mp3's.

but if you burn your mp3's as audio then it will convert into .wav then into the .cda format onto your cd. then that can be played on any cd player home/car etc.. providing the player can play CDR cd's, which most do these days i think?

hello,Razgo,thanks,actually i knew it already,the point is that i`d like to make my music collections on mp3cds, the purpose is to play them on mp3cd player ,but i dont have it yet,so if i`ll record it on cd as usual (folders,etc.)will it fit on an mp3 player...thats what the q. is..

ah ok, then this page should have the info you are after.


but how many mp3's it will fit will depend on how they are ripped.
ie: 64KB 128KB etc etc... and how much space your mp3 player has.

A mp3 CD is identical to an ordinary data CD.
