    A friend of mine got a cd from his friend that had 200 songs burned onto it. I can't figure out how to do this. I know how to burn a cd, but 16-18 is the most I have ever gotten on 1 cd. Do any of you know how this is done? If so, please tell me.

    I use Windows 98 and use Adaptec CD program to burn my cds.

    Thanks in advance. Wrenie

    The music files were compressed, most likely as mp3's. That CD with 200 songs won't play on an ordinary CD player, you have to have an mp3 player, or play them on your PC.

    To make CD like that, just burn a data CD, rather than an audio.

    That is what I needed to know. Thank You So Much. Do you know where one would get a MP3 player? Wrenie

    Um...what sort of player were you wanting? Portable "Discman"? "Boombox"? (both roughly $80-$100) Car head unit? ($200+) Walmart has the former two, and places like Best Buy and Circuit City would have all three. Alot of DVD players can play mp3 CDs, too- you could probably get one for under $100. ($60 at Walmart?)
