    Yo.

    I put 10 music files to a CD-R and wish to be able to listen to the music on my CD player?

    What do I need to do??

    If you open the cd and see the files are they still .mp3?

    You need to burn them with a program such as nero, itunes, WMP, that will encode it into an "audio cd" format.

    A regular "mp3" cd will play in some cd players, but not most. (Mp3 cd is prettymuch just the data files burnt directly to the cd)


    Mp3 you get the raw digital storage size of 100mb, but an audio cd will fit ~10-15songs per cd.

    What program did you use and did you make sure it was an 'audio disc' and not a 'data disc' that you created? Nero is a good program for CD burning, and its easy to use ;)

    PS: hello Irish_PXzyan, I see youve still got that 3200+ bottlenecking that lovely 8800 :( (joke)

    No, in your burning program, you need to choose the Audio CD option. Your CD player won't play the songs as files. They need to be burned as audio tracks (and not files), like on a real music CD.

    you can burn in "cd format" with Windows Media Player...just open it up and look for burn or copy to cd or device.

    Should be able to also try a demo if you want.

    www.nero.com

    Select "audio CD" not "data CD" and you should be all set.

    ive tryed using Windows Media Player to burn. I clicked on burn but it does not show any damn music files..I added 8 files from the .VLC to windows media player playlist but I cant find them. the user interface is rubbish..ive also tryed to find the files myself as I know where they are..but it wont allow me to see other folders.....wonderful.

    ill wait for Nero so!

    iTunes has to be the worst program ever made period. Try WinAmp.

    Eh, I wouldn't say that at all. Probably a winamp fanboi. Not saying winamp is a bad choice though.
