MP3 Files on a DVD-R for Car-dvd-player for playback... POSSIBLE?

Hi Guys,

What I have is a Pioneer AVH-6500 DVD Car Stereo. What I have in mind is to put some my mp3 collection onto a single DVD-R for my Pioneer to play.
But by doing so it does not play any mp3 files, & this is why I am here. From what I understand is that if I were to record a mpeg video file with audio on to a DVD-R but some how leaving out the video or setting it as blank leaving just the audio it in theory should play just like a normal DVD but only without video. How or is it possible to do so or even better is there a simpler way of getting mp3 onto DVD-R for my player to play.

It reads the following CD-ROM, CD-R CD-RW - DVD-R, DVD-RW.
Audio Formats MP3, MP3-PRO, WMA.
Video Formats MPEG

Additional info; It supports Dolby Digital, DTS, ID3 tag, m3u, ISO9660 format Level-1 & 2 - with Romeo & Joliet…

Hi and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

There is an USB port in that player? If Yes, you can use an USB pendrive :slight_smile:

I’ve never understood why car stereos don’t do this. MP3 decoding isn’t any harder from a DVD-R than a CD-R. Been looking for a stereo that does this for 10+years… it took a tiny PC installed in there for me to do it.

Not really much help, but my Alpine double din unit plays mp3 DVD and RW’s perfectly.

No there is not, not on this one. Although I have taught about getting one it would save lots of troubles as it is so simple just plug n play.

Yeah I know what you mean but that must come at a cost considering all the gear that’s required & installation as well.
That is something I would do when if I get a very nice car that I would keep for years.

Really! How do you mean it plays perfectly ? Are you talking about compatibility, or it’s ability to play a bunch of mp3’s files from DVD-R like it would from a CD-R?

Just an idea. If there is a way to connect any mp3 player (something like this for example), maybe you can still solve the problem :slight_smile:

Great idea this is quite possible as well as I do have an input link L+R you know the red & white connectors labeled as AUX-in. However this requires an additional wire from the back of the unit to the music source, & a charger to keep my iPod alive. Not that this is too complicated or anything but in my mind this takes away the simplicity of just inserting a disk into the unit. This kind of makes me old fashioned I guess.

I need somebody who really understand codecs & formats. I’m almost sure that it is actually possible to achieve playing mp3’s of a DVD-R. Somebody with a deeper knowledge of how this all works can help.

Look at it this way, I have many times extracted aac out of mp4 files you know music videos from known sources.
Well with the right program & the right format (container) I am sure it can be done. What has to be done is to do what you would for creating a video clip. Where the “video-clip” being/consisting of my audio track created but with no video, say just a picture that I like. This should result in multiple tracks in several folders, each track is played back displaying only a picture/wallpaper/whatever.

This is what I am trying to achieve but how? Who can help me on this. What program should I use? What format? at what encoding speed? :bow::confused:

I just burnt folders to the disc as a normal mp3 CD would have been, all tracks accessible with the folder up/down buttons.

Are you in the USA? If so are you sure of the model number? I went to Pioneer USA to look for that model’s manual and couldn’t find one.

My unit is outdated so. Newer models play DivX & have a bunch of other new features. What model Alpine have you got? I was looking at a Kenwood unit not long ago they produces good units at a reasonable price but their sound isn’t as good as Alpine & Pioneer.
