Mp3 download problem



Are all mp3 files the same format? I downloaded a CD from an Australian website in mp3 format. It will not play in my CD player on a CD-R. Other CD-Rs that I have downloaded in mp3 play fine on the same CD player. Thanks for your help


Is the file extension mp3? What program are you using to burn the CD? Are you burning as an audio CD (converting the mp3 to CDA) or burning as a data cd. Which operating system? What brand of blank CD? Are you certain that these mp3 tracks are not DRM protected?
