Burning Audio to CD???

8 replies
Hi all!

I recorded a call via Audio Acrobat and now I need to burn it to CD. The file is an MP3 format, but as I understand it, it won't play in a car CD player or boom box CD player if I burn the MP3 file to the CD.

What file format do I need to convert it to to make sure it plays on CD players (not just a computer)? I have Sony Sound Forge to do the converting. I'm not very techie and have done a search online, but I'm not finding the info.

Anyone know??? I'd really appreciate the help!

        I'd just use iTunes or Nero.

        If you use Nero, it will prompt you to burn a Data CD or Audio. Choose Audio, add your file, and you're off to the races.

        If you choose Data, you get the CD with an MP3 on it.

    Nero is very common for burning audio/movie to CD. It is very easy to use.

        Thanks for your suggestions everyone!

        I already have Sony Sound Forge, so I'm not willing to buy another program. BUT Targeted Traffic's suggestion of using iTunes worked. Thanks so much! That's what I wanted: a simple, "Do it now!" solution.

        I played the CD all the way through just to make sure it burned fine, and it did. My only complaint is that when I popped it into the CD player, it took about 15 seconds (a LONG time!) before it found the track. It kept scanning, trying to find it before it started to play. I actually intend to have it duplicated and shipped by Speaker Fulfillment Services on a regular basis, but this got it out quick when I needed it.

        Thanks for your help!
