    The specific steps for selecting and preparing MP3 files for conversion to CDA format varies by program; be sure to consult your software's documentation for details.

    When the files are ready, execute the software's burn-to-CD function. The resulting CD should be ready to play in conventional CD players.

Tips and warnings

  • Remember that a typical CD can only hold about 70 minutes worth of audio. If you wish to burn more audio, group your files into 70-minute batches and create multiple audio CDs.
  • Some conventional CD players can read and play MP3 files; for these players, conversion to CDA format is unnecessary.
  • You cannot use a DVD-R or DVD-RW disc in place of a blank audio CD.
