Best Nero settings for burning mp3 DVDs... ISO? Mode?



Hi All,

I’m about to backup all of my music onto Taiyo Yuden DVD-R’s. This stuff is very dear to me, so I want to make sure I use the optimal settings in Nero Burning ROM when I do this.

  1. Data Mode 1 or Mode 2/XA?
  2. Whats best? ISO9660, ISO9660+Joliet, or ISO9660:1999?

Also, is there a way I can enable more than 64 characters, and still retain a bulk of compatibility? I have some very long filenames and folder names that I would like to avoid renaming.

What about the relaxing restrictions settings?

Any help would be greatly appreciated… thank you!



I would advise you to use the Musc / MP3 disc project that Nero offers for such burning. The settings there should be optimized and fixed for proper recording.


if you are only archiving the music to dvd media, as data, the default dvd-rom options will work fine. you wont get long file names though.
