The Realplayer Jukebox will perform a Save As function to convert to .wav for CD recording.

Or try Shareware http://www.winamp.com where you can convert with this tool.

Hi,
   Wav files tend to be pretty large when compared to their MP3 counterparts. Depending on the .wav files and how they are sampled I would be more concerned with disk space then the quality. What I mean by that is if the .mp3 sounds good, you will not notice any loss usually. I am in the process of converting hundreds of CD's into .mp3's. The old records have to be converted into wav and then mp3. Disk space can be tough, but I have a 30gb drive coming in. I hope that helps. If you would like to talk more about this, I can get you my tel number.

Depends on what sound card you're using. It can be 44khz 16-bit stereo (CD Quality) or even better.

What sound card are you using?

Hi,
If you write your CD with MP3 files, you could open those songs using your computer or download into mp3 player.
You could not play them with normal/conventional stereo set.

More,
Normal/conventional stereo set could play .wav files without any trouble (and normal CD song recorded in that format).  But playing MP3 need high CPU speed.

Yes,

Get Nero 4.0 or up. Then simply drag the mp3s to the CD window in Nero and it converts them to CD Audio automatically for you which your stereo will understand.

Good luck.

If you want to play CD's on your stereo then you will have to convert all of your MP3's to WAV's. Another approach is what I did. Put a cheap 486 with a terminal somewhere. Use a program like Real Jukebox and take the output of your soundcard and send it to your stereo. Now you can play great sounding MP3's to your Living Room Perhaps. With the program you can code by year, category like Rock, COuntry etc. Then you will have compressed, good sounding CD's that you don't have to keep pulling out when company comes bye!

Hmm,

Is the poster sure about this? I was like thinking the way pilch67 does. I mean, I thought the poster wanted to play the CD's in a *NORMAL* HIFI system. Of course, with a *NORMAL* CD audio player which one thing for sure, CDA Players on the market today can't play .MP3 and .WAV files. Unless I am again mistaken.

And I also agree with pilch67's suggestion to get an APP to convert or in HIFI afficionados term to RECORD those .MP3 and/or .WAV files to CDA format. Thus it is like buying a CD from a mall to be played on *ANY* CD player such as Son'y CDMan and others, without the need for any computers or CDROM drives.

Does the poster intend to play it that way or does he have a new CD Player that can play .WAV files? The CD player of course is the one you buy from the appliance store and not from COMPUTER shops.

The poster is going to use a computer program, assemble wav files onto a CD. Then he is going to take the finished CD to his consumer CD player and play it.

All this man wanted to do is take an MP3 from the Internet and get them onto a CD.

Oh. I didn't know that consumer CD players usually found on the market can play wave files. Coz I accidentally inserted a CD with wav files on it, and my player displayed NO DISC INSERTED.

Hmmm... could be that my CD player is outdated. I think I may have to buy the October models at least. But that have to wait. I won't spend extra money for that coz I just bought it last May.

Btw, if the consumer CD players can now read PC format *DATA* CDs, it would also mean, or at least, have an option to plug that CDA Player to our computer? WOW! This is neat! CDROMS don't last that long! But for sure CDA Players last longer. And it won't drain my powersupply as it gets it's power from the AC outlet!

On the other hand, if this exists now, I think I have to check out the market, and get a full DVD/CDV/CDA player! Imagine, what you can do with current technology, and what we'll be like without it. Right Pilch67??? Go get yourself one too! LOL!

The computer product (RealNetworks Jukebox etc)will place the wav files into redbook format. You can't just take wavs and place them on a cd and expect them to play.
