CDs can fit a maximum of 700 megabytes. When you are using uncompressed audio you can easily fill up the entire CD in 10 to 15 tracks, depending on the length of the song. However, if you compress the files down into an MP3 audio format you can fit additional songs onto the CD because the files are far smaller then the standard .wav audio files.

Launch your Internet browser and make you way to a site that features an MP3 conversion program. There are dozens of different sites that offer this kind of program on the Web, including "ConvertMP3.net," "WMA-MP3.com" and "NCH.com." All three of these websites feature MP3 converter programs and function similarly.
Download and install a program from one of the websites. Click "Start," "All Programs," then choose the new MP3 conversion program to launch the software.
Click-and-drag the audio files you want to convert into the main viewing area of the conversion program. You can drag the files from any location on your computer, including media players such as iTunes or Windows Media Player.
Select an ouput location folder, then choose "MP3" as the conversion type and click "Convert."
Insert a blank CD into the CD burner, then launch the CD burning software on your computer. Choose "Audio CD" as your CD format, then click "Add Files" and choose the MP3 audio files you want to place on the CD. Click "Burn" and the files are placed onto the music CD.
