    Default Am i right, CD70 will play MP3? how would i do this?

    Hi Guys,

    AM i right in thinking MP3s can be played on the CD70? If thats the case, we have over 5 gig of songs on I-tunes on the PC.

    Could i write a CD with a good load of songs on it for the car? Please could someone idiot guide me, i.e what format from i-tunes etc please? Ive only ever written standard CDs from it...

    Cheers

    Mike

    CD70 will only read mp3 files, so if your stuff on i-tunes is in mpeg 4 format you'll have to convert it to mp3 (using one of the hundreds of free converters you'll find online), then either dump all the mp3's onto the disc (which will give you a massive list of alphabetised tracks to choose from) or create folders on your disc first (with albulm names or artist names) and dump the mp3s into them.

    I think there's a how 2 somewhere for using WMP.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks that does help, alot!! Thankyou

    So, i need to find a conversion type software? Is that something stand alone i install on the PC, which opens the i-tune file and saves as MP3? Bit like windows media player?

    This sounds very exciting, the possibility of a huge amount of tracks in the car! I presume you simply drag and drop as may MP3s as possible to a data CD?

    Cheers

    this is the converter I use:

    http://www.freewarefiles.com/Free-Ma...ram_39794.html

    you can get the program to drop converted files into a new folder then just copy the folder onto your disc.

    job done

    Thankyou... again

    I will look at that when i get home! Is it easy to use & understand? Will i just have to point it at the i-tunes library or something, and it will creat the MP3s elsewhere?

    unfortunately not - you drag the files into the program and it outputs them into a folder of your choice.

    you can drag multiples direct from itunes by selecting a load while holding CTRL and then set it on it's merry way.

    gimme a shout if you get stuck

    You can use iTunes to convert to MP3. I import all my cds in MP3 format.
    Also just to note I believe they recommend about 20 albums max per disc for optimum performance in the CD70.

    To select MP3 for all new imports go to the Edit tab and Preferences, then click Import Settings and select MP3 Encoder from the drop down list and click OK.

    To convert, select the tracks you want to change and go to the Edit tab and Advanced, Create MP3 Version. iTunes will then create a second MP3 version and list them un-highlighted and under the originals in your library. I normally then delete the original so that I don't keep getting mixed up.
