I currently new to the cd burning scene and have a question for you guys. I have a Creative 6224 burner with Nero burning software. I was wondering how many songs you can fit onto one cd. I know you could fit more if you burnt them in the mp3 format but I want to listen to these songs on my CD player.

I am sure I have heard of people storing many songs on one cd and then listening to them on their cd player.

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

It all depends on the length of the songs. The average 74 min. cd-r can usually hold 18 songs, give or take a few. Of course the 80 min. cds can hold a couple more.

The absolute maximum# is 99 songs.
Most CDR's are 74min and most songs are about 3min.
So with some clear thinking, this results in 74min/3min = 24 songs.
When you want to put 99songs on a CD, this would result in 74min/99songs = 0.7min for the average song-length (not really realistic).

You can use programs like Easy CD pro (or Creator) to make your own compilations.
These programs start at 74min and when you add a song to the list, they count backwards.
eg: song1=3,5min => 74min-3,5min = 71,5min left.
It will give an error message if you put more songs in the list than the CDR can hold.
