    I've never tried to burn music to a DVD-R, don't want to waste one and find it doesn't work :eek:

    Just trying to avoid splitting a playlist into two or three CDRs.

    Thanks!

    Depends on the player. I'm not aware of any that support .wav but most DVD players support MP3 and some support WMA playback... Check your player here:

    No home stereo plays DVD's as far as I'm aware of. If you meant home DVD player then check out the site thecoalman suggests to see what your player can play. It won't play normal CD Audio (as per shop bought music CD's) on a DVD though. Neither will you be able to create such a DVD anyway (CD audio on a DVD that is) and DVD audio is different to CD audio. Most DVD players play CD audio, few play DVD audio - if that makes sense ;)
