Windows 7: Problem of Burning an Audio CD using WMP

Problem of Burning an Audio CD using WMP

I use WMP to burn an audio CD, which is 700M. Each song is 23.5M. I drag about 20 songs to the burn list under WMP. It seems each song is in one track. But, when i hit start burn button, there is ONLY song being burned. Why? Why I cannot burn all 20 songs in the one CD? Thanks.

I looked at the options available for WMP but it doesn't make sense. I do a lot of Audio CD burning as I have a recording studio but I use Nero.

There are a couple of other free CD burning programs, CDburnerXP is one. Click Me Imgburn is anoher one that's popular HERE

When I burn audio CD's, I burn at a slow speed (I use 8X as my audio CD Burning speed standard) so they will play in most Audio CD players (CD's burned at high speed may not play or skip). I also burn "Disk at Once" which allows adding text (titles) to the CD's.

I know this doesn't fix your problem with WMP, but it does give you some options.

Thanks. It does seem strange to me. But when drag small size of songs, they are on the same track. Also, I used itune and had the same issue after converting to mp3 format. Can anyone else give me some more suggestion? Thanks.

Give CD BurnerXP a try. CDBurnerXP: Free CD and DVD burning software

MP3's can be burned as a "Data" disc, not an audio disc. CD Burner XP will also burn data discs.

I have another question. If the size of an audio file in my computer is 23.6M, then the size of the audio file burned to CD will be dramatically increased, right? No matter what software I used including CDburnerXP, I can only burn one song to a CD with 700M. Is that right?
Thanks.

I'm not sure I am following you, but..........

Burned music CDs and retail music CDs are generally limited by playing time---right around 80 minutes. I regularly burn them with a total above 79 minutes. Songs average around 3 minutes, so I can usually get 25 to 28 songs on a CD. These CDs should be playable in any player.

Burned data CDs are generally limited by the 700 MB capacity that you mention.

Some players will play CDs in which songs are burned as data CDs. MP3s of a typical song might average 4 MB, so in such cases a burned CD might hold somewhere near 150 or 200 songs (700 MB divided by about 4).

Thanks. It helps. If my songs are a wma format, can I play them using a car CD's player after they are burned as data CDs?

Car CD players vary in what they will play. You have to experiment.

Mine is fairly old and will play ONLY "CDA" files. CDA files are what you find on retail music CDs that you pay $15 for downtown. CDA files are also produced by a typical burner when burning songs as music files, not data files.

I know that some more modern car players will play mp3 files when burned as data.

I'm not sure if any car CD players will play WMA files---but you could always convert them to mp3 if your car player will play mp3s as data files.

I think WMA files are quite large and there wouldn't be any advantage to burning them as data files even if your player would play them---you would be subject to the 700 MB size limit. If each WMA files is about 25 MB, that means you would only get about 28 songs per disc (700 divided by 25).

If I had a bunch of WMA files I'd burn them as CDA files on a "music" disc subject to the 80 minute time limit. Or I would convert them to mp3 and burn them as a "data" disc IF AND ONLY IF my player would play mp3s from a data disc.

When I come across a WMA file, I immediately convert it to mp3, so I am not positive on burning ideas for WMA---I'm assuming an ordinary burner will recognize them and burn them as CDA files.

You will have to check your car players specifications to see if it will play mp3s from data discs. Many will, many won't.
