Is it possible to play a DVD in my car CD player?
The mp3 format is compressed, you have already lost audio quality by converting from 44.1kHz/16-bit WAV to mp3.
A standard Redbook audio CD is basically wav files.... so when you write mp3 files to an "audio" CD they are converted back to wav files. Depending on the compression used a 6MB mp3 (192 kbps) file is converted to a 48MB wav file before, or as it's being written to CD, that's why you can only get 10-15 songs on a CD.
Newer CD players will play MP3 CD's but these are basically a Data disk, not a standard audio CD.
Your CD player is limited to standard uncompressed 44.1/16-bit audio, and will not be able to read a DVD audio disk.
Remember... mp3 format is one type of lossy compression, definitely not an audiophile format but works fine for most modern music.
oops.. I see noobvious covered most of it, sorry about that...
