I have a Plextor Px-716 and I need help burning in MP3 format to disk. I have a few questions to help get me started.

1) Which disk to use that'll give me max minutes of play time?
2) Should I use the disk tht came with the unit or buy a seperate software?

I'm new to this so please understand and walk me thru this.

This question has two possible answers.

Do you want to burn MP3 files as actual files, for use in an iPod or similar? Or do you want to burn the MP3 files into such a fashion that they play like an audio CD?

1) Standard CD playing time is 74 minutes. While 80, 88 and 99 minute CDs are available, they can be more expensive.
2) If the drive comes with Nero or whatever, why not use it? You've paid for it. Alternatives are available.

Neil Jones,

I want to burn the MP3 files into such a fashion that they play like an audio CD. Which means I could get about 83 songs on a CD correct? If so how would I accomplish this. I have Cool Edit Pro 2.1 and Roxio Creator 9.0 (Ineed to install it but have the CD)my system is a Windows Vista Home Basic. Any assistance is appreciated.

Maximum Respect,

Christopher Thompson

Burnaware Free is a good quick and dirty little program that will also work.
