    Hey, i dont know where to post this but i have a question:

    To burn an mp3 cd, do you just burn the cd as a "data cd" and make all the folders and everything, or do you have to get a special program that encodes these discs. need help quick. thanx.
    o...and if i alredy have them in .mp3 format then do i just burn it as a "data disc" if not..
    anyone know any good freeware mp3 burners? thanx.

    Burn it as a data CD if you have a CD player that can play MP3's otherwise they need to be converted to CDA (wav) format and then burned to the CD. Most burning apps today do the conversion for you if create a music CD from the wizards offered. I believe WinAmp and Windows Media Player 9 will burn to CD

    I got MusicMatch, it burns Mp3 CD's for me, all i got to do, is drag and drop the music files, and click burn.

    So what the heck was your question?? If you do the drag and drop you aren't making an MP3 CD, you are making an CDA (music CD)

    You can make mp3 cds using musicmatch as well. what cd writing software do you use? nero allows for burning mp3 cds. all you have to do is choose the files you want to burn. I wouldnt recommend burning it as a data cd - tried that once and all the music was fragmented into 20 second bits. Also, remember to burn at a slower speed like around 8x - some players have problems with cds burnt at a faster rate.

    My vote is for nero.
