Hi guys just figured I’d say hi I just joined this forum because I’m trying to learn myself about burning cd’s and the different file types music comes in AAC MP3 all that good stuff.
so here’s what i’m trying to do. I have a very nice stereo in my car that I custom built. All polk audio,Jl audio and eclipse stuff. I like it. I’m trying to burn Cd’s that will display the song track info on the head unit. If i’m not mistaken to do this all I have to do is click the “burn cd text” box on my program I use to burn. I don’t use Nero (i’m looking at getting it) I use the programs that come with the different music download sites I use. Napster of late and Itunes are what I use most. Napster now becuz itunes hates vista 64-bit. So I assume that activating Cd text would allow me to do so and have my song names displayed? I assume my cd burner is capable of doing it since the icon is there and allows the use. Its a sony dvdrw drive that came with the computer brand new two months ago.
also my question is about the difference between burning music as an “audio CD” and a “Data CD”. I was very hard pressed to find differences other than that an “audio CD” is using the general format that almost all CD’s that you would buy in a store use. and that a “Data CD” burns the actual file whether it be Mp3 WMA AAC. also I noticed an audio CD could fit mebbe 18 songs at best where as a Data Disc can hold almost ten fold. I’m in the process of trial and error with doing this I have no blank discs atm (ran out) and I plan to test using audio cd with cd text, as well as a data disc. from what I can tell you don’t add CD text with cd’s burned in the data format. since it isn’t an option with any once the burner is set to data.
Is there any difference in quality between audio and data type? I mean all my songs are downloaded from reputable sights that have a good bit rate- (is that what it’s called right bit rate) which the bit rate is like the quality of the music file? All I believe are 128kbps or higher (is that goood i’m assuming so)
any help with this would be much appreciated. also a question about Nero. from what i’ve heard Nero is the best burner program no? would I be able to use that program to say burn songs I download using napster or Itunes? I’m not sure because sometimes protected music is very strange about how it is burned.
appreciate the help guys. I hope to become more coherent with Cd’s in the future
