My guess is because audio CDs are meant to be played in CD players found in cars and boomboxes, etc... I've never seen a DVD music player. You could always burn the music file to the DVD as an .mp3 or other music data file.

PS - I'm with jimbo, who burns audio CDs anymore? LOL. I can't remember the last time I burned an audio CD.

Well I suppose the cd's and such are just for the old school people like me who just like em....until they get scratched.

I still Play cd's as all my cars are old, about 95. One plays cd one plays tape. WOOOOHOOOO tapes lol!! Wheres my BonJovi

Seriously though, all tapes that i own are backed up as wav via audacity lol. Not that the tapes are no good but im on my last tape recorder and when that goes.....lets just say they better be backed up. :)

Another question. Someone said that you cant make a music dvd. Why not? I realise no cd player would recognise it but i though that a program like nero could make a juke box cd. I have never tried to make one and perhaps i don't know what im talking about. However it will be a fun research project.

P.s In my humble opinion I like audio formats FLAC and WAV as they are lossless. I dont like mp3 and the such because the compression methods that they use damage the sound quality. I can really hear the difference in the bass in some songs.

Hi there.

You CAN burn Music to DVD (aka soundtracks for films) but you need the PROFESSIONAL AUTHORING DVD software to do it. - For Music though there's no point - FLAC and WAV play from any device - and you can edit the tracks (or tags) with things like MP3tag.

You can RIP say the CD with WINAMP or any software you like to FLAC / WAV (or any other codec you like)- I prefer WINAMP since it uses GRACENOTE to get track info --other software uses different DB's for the track info. For Classical music particularly Gracenote is the best one out there.

Save the tracks to any old folder

Now build up your music library.

Store as files on HDD or even a physical DVD but you'll need standard music applications to play the tracks -- a DVD player won't do it.

Win7 Pro 32bit

I burn audio CDs all the time to play on my big stereo (Yamaha amp and tuner, Marantz CD player, Dual TT, KEF speakers).

My favorite way to burn CDs was with Nero Ultra Suite 6 on XP. Nero cost me $50 at the time but it was worth every cent. I really wish I could get it to work with Win 7.

With Win7 I've tried CDex, Ashampoo, CDBurnerXP, and ImgBurn but I can't find a way to verify a CD audio burn with any of those freebies like I could with Nero 6.
