Saving MP3 files to CD as MP3 files

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Mighty Magpie, Apr 4, 2008.

  1. Hello, I'm sorry if this has been asked previously and sorry if it is also
    the wrong NG for this question but can someone please help put me out of my

    I have about 5gb of music files on my PC which are saved as MP3 files. I
    would like to save them as MP3 files, onto CD's or DVD's if possible.

    I seem to recall that I did this once before but I have no idea how I did it
    or more importantly, what program I used. I don't want to save them to a CD
    so that I only get about 15 tracks per disk etc and that is all I seem to be
    doing at the moment.

    I have Nero 6 and I thought there was an option on there somewhere to make
    an MP3 disk but I can't find one.

    Please help if possible even if it is only to suggest some alternative
    software to do the job.

  2. Many thanks for the reply and I will try it.

    As it happens, I have now found out how to do it with Nero 6 and have saved
    all of the tunes onto a DVD as MP3 so that will do me nicely.

    They don't play back via my home DVD players but that doesn't worry me too
    much as I really just wanted them saved to disk as a backup measure

    Thanks again

    Hmm. Have you checked you can play them on the PC (reading them from the
    DVD of course)?

  4. I hadn't tried until you mentioned it, which of course I should have done.

    But in any event, they play back fine via my PC

    As I mentioned in a previous email, I was really only interested in having
    them saved for backup purposes. If they did playback on my home DVD player,
    that would have been a bonus but it's not a major problem that they don't.
