Hi,

When burning CDs, you typically have two options available - an MP3 CD and a standard WAV CD. The MP3 CDs can hold hundreds of songs and can be played on most aftermarket radios and some factory radios on newer cars (these radios will usually have an "MP3" symbol printed on them somewhere). The standard WAV CD can only hold 13-16 songs but can be read by most factory stock CD players, but not all of them.

It sounds like you're doing things correctly for the most part. CD-R is the correct type of CD to use. Just make sure when you burn the CD that you're choosing the option for a standard CD in whatever software you're using. You'll know you've got it right if you can only fit about 16 songs onto the CD.

I will do my best to explain my problem . I have a cd with 1,000 songs on it I go to media player load cd its read by computer then. the songs show up on screen I pick one to listen to by clicking on it then a blue dot appears to the left of song then the next, like, five songs down the list also get a blue dot the it says file cant be found

Laptop technician: Tim Graham, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

It sounds like you're trying to burn songs from CD to CD, which likely won't work. You'll actually need to drag the songs from the 1000 song CD into a folder on your computer, and then burn the new CD using the songs from the folder. What software are you using to make your new CDs?

all i know is what ever came with the dell lab top im in the media player .so after the cd the 1000 song one is loaded to computer then i need to make a file for all the songs.the make a play list. so even though the computer has all the songs i have to make a file is what your saying ? i will try that . before the songs are on the play list but just wont play if i remimber right once it said there was no time on the file to create the play list to fit to the cd in which i was going to burn and so thats were the file should solve this problem correct

Laptop technician: Tim Graham, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Okay, it sounds like you're using Windows media player to burn the CD. And yes, you need to copy the songs you want off of the 1000 song CD onto your computer first, and then burn them onto the new CD.
