Can you make a music cd longer than 80 minutes?

Flab09Flab09

Hi,

Want to make a CD for my car and would like to know if it is possible to make it longer than 80 minutes and compatible with my car cd player. Citroen C3 2005.

Any help is appreciated.

    You can convert them to another format say wma or mp3, the only stumbling block is whether your player will recognise those files.

    My files already in MP3/WMA format but when I try and burn them using Windows Media Player after 80 minutes is complete it states to enter another CD.

    Amy I doing something wrong?

    You're probably burning too many tracks in audio format which exceed 80 mins.

    Yes, you're trying to put too much on. Are you trying to put too many tacks on? Remember, a 5mb mp3 will convert to about 50mb when it's converting to WAV to play in your player.

    need to use nero or somthing the same to burn a data cd and burn all your mp3's as data. Do not know if you player will play mp3,but that will let you put loads on one disc

    Thanks for your help :)

    I'm not sure if my cd player will play a data cd but will give it a go. Just downloading Nero 11 trail to test...

    The answer would be it depends on your CD player in your car.

    I'm guessing if this is a bog standard CD player then no, it will not exceed 80mins.

    If however your CD player can play mp3 or DVD (normally on entertainment stereos) then yes, you can fill your CD or DVD with music which will easily exceed 80mins.

    I have a Sony Stereo which supports mp3 and it has a USB connection, so I load all my mp3 music to a USB stick and it plays all from there.

    Try burning it as a data CD. Red book traditional standard format CDs only allow 80mins I think. CD Burner XP is excelllent and so easy to use. Hope this helps.

    Nero does overburn, a standard cd will OB to about 82 mins if you get lucky. You can buy 90min CDR but whether the car will play the extra minutes is debatable as most won't.

    As Windows Media Player got a option to have No pause between tracks,this will knock of about about A minute or so may even be more,Nero smart has this option, i use this sometimes when the files i load are more then a 80mins,
    download nero here http://downloads.phpnuke.org/en/download-item-view-y-y-l-z-l-n/NERO%2BSTARTSMART.htm

    Then you might get a way with a Overburn <<with nero that is) you then might have a better chance of it working with your car cd player

    You can buy extended size CDs.

    you can overburn cd's but only by a small amount and if u dont know what ur doing.. mostly likely to damage ur laser head on ur burner

    the current way ur trying to burn wma files means that windows media player is converting them back into standard cd audio mode (about 12 tracks per cd - depending on cd size and length or music track)

    not knowing for certain but searching google shows that the Citroen C3 2005 some CD Players supported mp3 - u need to check your cd player to see if it can.. search the model number - if it does.. the windows media player or other free burning software should allow you to create an mp3 disk - u might need to first convert ur wma to mp3 (suggested 160kbps variable is a good conversion setting but depends on your current wma quality)

    again you need to be careful as some mp3 players use and recognise folder (album folders) and some dont (all mp3's (no folders)

    hope this helps

    Yes but you will need to save them at a faster speed, so the songs will sound a bit rushed
