hey guys, this is probably such a novice question but ah well

i've been burning cds for quite some time, like most. just curious if people still "extract" there mp3 files into the much larger Wav files before burning them to disc.

or is that an un necessary step. the reason i still do that is cause one of my old cd players would only read the cd when i burned the larger wav files as opposed to burning the mp3s directly do disc

I like to burn 700 MB of MP3 files onto a disk and go on roadtrips with my MP3 player. It has never occured to me to convert the MP3s to wav files. Why would you need wav files?

Now an audio cd is a different story. Most regular cd players will not play MP3s, and an audio cd allows for much less music.

that's usually why i always burn music cd's (Very rare occurance as i have a 20gig HD in the truck that plays all my music and the G/F has an mp3 player) as WAV's...had a friend have to pay 200 bucks to some car dealership to get a cd out of his truck cuz it wouldn't eject the cd...because it couldn't read the MP3s....it assumed there was no disk...so it wouldn't eject.

I hope that the cd player cost alot more than $200. There's plenty of good car cd players that cost less than $200.

As far as WAV files, the only rason to convert to that is if whatever you are going to play it in can't read mp3's.
