    Getting myself in a complete mix up in deciding what option to use when
    burning with iTunes.
    I need to make the songs playable on most CD players, not just on my PC
    and am using CD-R blanks.
    Now the bit that's confusing me.
    iTunes gives three options when burning (only the first two are relevant
    to me):
    Audio CD
    MP3 CD
    Data CD or DVD
    The files I wish to burn are already MP3's.
    So, should I just choose Audio CD?
    Would selecting MP3 CD result in them being further compressed or is
    that the correct option as they ARE MP3's?
    The more I try to search for info, the more confused I get!

    For them to play on a normal CD player you have to make audio CDs.
    That will decode the MP3 to its wave and burn the wave. MP3 CDs are
    just data CDs.
