Is it possible to throw a bunch of MP3s onto a DVD and make an MP3 DVD, the same as you'd make a MP3 CD?

Just curious, Thanks.

Yes.

Thank you! :D

Second question: In Toast, how do I burn it? As a Data Mac & PC, or DVD-ROM (UDF), or something entirely different?

Thanks

Well, wait... what do you want to do with this MP3 DVD? If you want to play it in a DVD player or MP3 CD player, it won't work most likely. Most DVD players do not recognize MP3s on a DVD the same way as an MP3 CD.

If you want to burn a bunch of tunes, just use iTunes. Go into the Burning prefs and set it to Data DVD. Then pop in a DVD and hit Burn :)

Well, I was hoping it would work the same was an MP3 CD, but if it doesn't, thats fine. I just need to delete some stuff, but I don't want it gone forever. I just thought it'd be cool if I could still listen to it without putting it onto the computer. That's a bummer, oh well.

I'll go the Toast route, as iTunes doesn't recognize my external DVD burner.

Thanks

It would have been helpful if you said that originally.

Devices that only read CDs only read CDs and a DVD is not a CD.

Little misunderstanding here. First off, I'm not an idiot. Secondly, I would be listening to it through my DVD player.

So would that work?

It'll work on some DVD players, but many only work with MP3 CDs, or don't care for MP3s at all.
