Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Dose Nero have a similar program pick, I tried it and it did not decompress my CD. It would not work in my 1999 Jeep factory player. Down loads for Roxio's easy CD creator are $42.00.
My burning program nicely converts mp3 into cda format, but still my car radio gives an error (where it does play commercial audio cds).
Might there be a problem with the long file names of the mp3 files? Commercial cds often have a file name like track01.cda, the converted cds often have the song name as file name.
Thanks for the info!!!
In that whole statement he makes about car stereo's aren't computers not once does he answer the flipping question.. It's really simple.. What Format.. We know standard audio isnt MP3
My car stereo instructions say it will play DVD Audio..............I am unable to find any burner that will burn anything other than CD audio. Is there such a program or a way to "trick" a program into writing to a 4.7 GB DVD?
You didn't answer the question. You just plugged Roxio's software and ipods, what format does the software output the data in?
My simple car radio also did not have a line-in for MP3 players and other auxiliary. That is: I thought so. In reality the radio happened to have a line-in at the back of the device. This was not revealed by the Users Manual. I discovered the existence of the line-in after downloading the Installation Manual. After buying two special metal strips I was able to take out the radio and connect a cable to the mini-jack entrance at the back. Now I connect not only an MP3 player to it, but also a small Shortwave World Receiver. Why are we users not allowed to know these possibilities?
For the simple unanswered question. Car and store bought cd players are always and only compatible with WAV (.wav / WAVE) format unless otherwise specified.
I have .WMA music files on my hard drive. How do I copy to a music CD in MP3 format?
I think the confusion is that your answer is not quite complete.
There are files on a CD (easily seen by exploring it in the computer).
The files are basically WAV files.
There is additional information that is not saved as files your computer can see that are specified by the standards for CDs. The standard states that a CD player must recognize this information and play the data files per the information in it.
After MP3s and other music formats came out, some CD player makers decided to give them the intelligence to recognize data CDs and play the files. This is in addition to their ability to play CDs that were made to the music CD standards.
