I've tried a few searches about my situation, but it looks like Iv'e got to ask. Here's my situation.
Compaq 5WV254 5000 series computer
eic hard drives - mp3's on a Western Digital 60 g.
Windows XP home
For digital audio playing, I have an original Rega Planet cd player and a Toshiba SD 4800 dvd player.
I have mp3's. I want to commit them to permanent hard copy so I can keep them for a long time. I would like them to sound as good as possible, but I want to do this the simplest way, w/ as little stress and headache as possible. I have not touched the mp3's, They're from winmx and ripped from streamripper radio.
I just play them through wmp9. My questions are, If I go the cdr route;
Will cdr's play on my Rega Planet ? The dvd player says it will, provided the file names are 8 characters or less. Is that a pain to do? Can you still recognize the songs that way?
I was planning on getting a Yamaha f1. Should I get one as soon as possible, are they getting hard to find? Are the factory remanufactured ones worth buying?
Lastly, is there anything else I should know before doing this?
Any timeless, sage advice, avoiding problems, etc? Would other burners be a better fit for what I want to do?
A thousand thanks
