To your first post.
You cannot have DVD with mp3 audio, unless the video is mpeg4 (DivX).
Regular DVD has AC3 or LPCM(CD type audio) audio format.
If you want to burn only audio in mp3 format on DVD, than make sure that your player will play that format, because DVD will not play in CD player.[/QUOTE]
I was using MP3 only as an example. What I want to do is put CD audio music on a DVD, but it seems like the only way to do this is to create a “video” with the CD audio track sans the video. By the sounds of it, I will use the PCM format, but my original question remains: if I do this, will I have a DVD “video” that plays 500 min of music?
Btw, I plan to use Windows Movie Maker to import the audio CD files (as WAV) and produce either an AVI or WMV format video. Then I plan to use Windows Media Center to produce a DVD video from the AVI/WMV.
Two questions: one, will WMM compress or alter the WAV files in any way that distorts the music irreversibly?; and two, when WMC converts the audio track to the PCM format - which I understand uses a higher sampling freq - what distortions may be introduced in that process?
