Making Audio Discs : Making an MP3 Disc
Making an MP3 Disc
This disc can be played in home or car stereo MP3 Disc players, compatible set-top disc players, and most Macintosh and Windows computers.
A typical audio CD can hold over 70 minutes of music, while an MP3 CD can hold over 10 hours and an MP3 DVD can hold over 50 hours. An MP3 BD can hold hundreds of hours of music. However, an MP3 disc has limited menu capabilities for navigation, so finding a particular song can be difficult, and they can only be played on devices that support MP3 disc playback.
A Music DVD is the best choice for high capacity, full menu navigation, and universal playback. See Making a Music DVD.
* To make an MP3 Disc
1 In Toast, choose Burn tab, and in the Burn Audio area, choose MP3 Disc.
2 In the Output Settings area, type a title, set your destination and number of copies.
3 Add MP3 files to the disc by dragging and dropping them into the Content Area from your hard disk or the Media Browser.
You can add any existing MP3 file. Toast does not create MP3 audio files. To create MP3 files, you can use iTunes. You can also add existing non-MP3 files such as WMA or OGG to this disc if your player supports these formats.
You can also rearrange, rename and remove items from the Content Area. Rearranging the files into sub-folders may improve the playback navigation with some MP3 players. It does not affect the original files on your hard disk or iTunes library. See Working With Data Content.
4 Insert a blank, recordable CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc.
5 Click the red Burn button at the bottom right of the Toast window.
Toast displays a progress bar and status information as it records your disc.
