[QUOTE=jeff53404;2147895]Have you ever tried the trial version of audio-dvd-creator as suggested?
Yes, but when I tried to install it Windows told me a driver certificate had not been validated by a recognized source and suggested I abort the installation. Plus, the software doesn’t support Vista, though I can get around that by running it in XP compatability mode. I may still try it as I have many jazz and classical CDs I want to archive using an uncompressed format.
From what I gather, all Audio DVD does is create super slimmed down video files that have audio tracks in the WAV/PCM format. A good video authoring program should be able to do this. In fact, I read in some mag that Roxio Easy DVD will do the same thing Audio DVD does. I will prob test the trial version.
In my quest to create audio DVDs, I’ve been surprised that more people either haven’t already done this or want to do it. With 4 and 8GB DVD media, there is no need to compress perfectly good CD audio music. The whole advantage of MP3 is that it’s faster to DOWNLOAD. But if you already have audio CDs (as many people still do), then downloading isn’t even an issue.
Why sacrifice music quality when you don’t have to?
Burning audio DVDs (that play in any DVD player) should be as simple as burning audio CDs. I hope developers come around to seeing this.
