    I want to burn some mp3s onto a disk to play in my car. I'm pretty sure it can play mp3 files, but my problem is when I click burn disk, a window comes up prompting me to choose "Audio CD, MP3 CD, Data CD or DVD."

    Which one should I choose?

    What's the difference between Audio and MP3 CD?

    Also, what is the speed at which I should burn at to retain quality?

    I want to burn as many as I can with good quality. :D

    Thank you.

    Audio CD will give you a CD that should be playable in any CD player. An MP3 CD will create a CD containing MP3 files which can only be played by CD players that can read MP3 files. The advantage of an MP3 CD is that you can get many more songs on it.

    Cool, how many songs about or how many minutes? My disk is 80 minutes, 700 MB, and CD-Recordable (it also has 24x whatever that means). And when burning should I go for 4x speed?

    Thanks for help.

    Audio CD is 80 minutes, MP3 CD is how many files you can fit on the capacity of a CD, which I think is 700MB.

    Hmm, I think my car can play DVD audio too. So for DVD should which one should I choose? (DVD CD right? >.<).
