    and have gone from 7gig to less than 400mb of MP3 but when I try to fit them
    onto a CD all the software tell me that he files are bigger than the
    destination - I should have 300MB of blank space - what gives?

    Voicing an opinion as worthless as a wino at a wedding, Marc postulated...
    You are trying to create a music cd or a data cd ?

    Data cd's for mp3's :)

    Depending on what software you are using, make sure you are writing a data
    CD as opposed to an audio CD.
    Otherwise the burning program is converting your mp3's to CDA files.

    Audio CDs are based on TIME.
    Data CDs are based on SPACE.

    Thanks y'all that's what I thought but I wasn't positive. Now for another
    question. Why don't the people that write the software take this into
    consideration if you want to burn an MP3 disc convert them to wav(cda) butt
    leave them as MPs or give you the option?

    They do... that's why you have the option to (and I'll take this slowly for
    you...) burn... as... Audio ...OR ...as ...Data

    Audio for music CD, Data for mp3/wav/etc

    Last time I checked MP3/WAV/etc. were audio not data! Data to me have
    extensions like xls, doc, txt, exe, dll etc. I have looked and from what
    I've read the manuals are full of assumptions and jargon. This is a great

    Ehh - Because, if it's not 44.1Khz sampling stereo 16 bit, it won't

    If they're .WAV, they're not .MP3.

    When you burn an "audio" cd, the 'data' is converted to, and stored as a
    ..cda file on the cd. This is the type of file that can be played by regular
    cd players.

    When you burn MP3's or WAV files onto a cd, you are actually burning a
    "data" cd. These files are stored in the exact same format as on your
    computer. Some of the newer cd-players can read one or both (or more) of
    these. But it is still called a "data cd".

    These are the accepted (standard even?) usages when talking about burning
    cd's. The jargon won't change because you don't like it or are not used to
    thinking of it that way. Take some time to learn the "technical" (or even
    the 'commonly accepted') terms for the technology you are using before you
    argue that they are wrong...

    That's my very point the "commonly accepted language" is the jargon that
    most "experts" like to spout. I work in CE and it's also jargon rich but I
    go out of my way when I explain technology to use as little jargon as I can
    and when I do I explain the terms and make sure they understand. Technology
    at this level doesn't have to be difficult but it's kept this way for the
    elitist and the techno geeks. To the lay man the "data" is all the same -
    "0 or 1" or "ons than offs".
    The manuals are written by some tech writer that too often came up in the
    industry and vocabulary is jargon based. So lighten up I only ask question
    here after I've spend to much time trying to understand the manual.

    I'm fairly certain the average imbecile could grasp
    the difference between AUDIO and DATA.

    Marc - AUDIO is an analog signal propagated through a media.

    .WAV and .MP3 are both DATA files.

    Now, what they PRODUCE normally is audio ... but they're data, none
    the less.

    Ralph Wade Phillips, Jan 19, 2004
  14. Howdy!

    Why, yes, it is. Which is why .MP3s and .WAVs are data files ...

    And, no, it's not kept that way for the elitist and techno geeks -
    it's kept that way because it IS that way. Your muttering won't change
    And you got an answer, including a quick and a not-so-quick

    But it's one you already understood, just didn't KNOW you understood

    So your telling me - albeit - erroneously - that because MP3 and WAV are 1
    and 0 their data and CDs are not. Well you better go and check out how a CD
    is recorded - 1 and 0 - so I guess that makes them data also! So now can
    you explain how the average lay man based on your "definition" is to tell
    the difference. Or maybe your the imbecile for making these gross
    assumption - those elitist and techno geeks. Would you like me to send you
    a little explanation of all that is entailed in either of the manufacturing
    of CD and DVD or maybe just howbig the machine is - OH sorry I making the
    assumption that you have actually seen how they're made. I sell equipment
    that is used in the process. Now can you explain to me what takes place in
    recording of a CD - don't cheat and look it up.

    Actually Marc, we'd be quite happy to explain it if you'd just first explain
    how bread is baked in your local bakery -- don't read about it, that would
    be too
    geeky. Ask the baker himself. We really need to know that too y'know.

    It's elitest to expect someone to grasp the difference
    between audio and data discs after it's been explained
    a dozen times? How many more times do you need
    the same clue hammered into that concrete block
    you're passing off as a head?

    Data and audio have perfectly good definitions, but in colloquial usage with
    reference to CD burning, *audio* means uncompressed tracks that are
    playable on any CD player. Desktop CD burning programs use the word
    in this way, at least on the surface.

    That's all I'm gonna say on this topic. Otherwise I'm gonna have to
    recommend the comfy chair.
    You just told us -- 1 and 0. Seems a pretty good summary to me.

    Now about this bakery...

    No wonder he can't understand the logical statements in the manual.
