    I was wondering if anyone here can help me. The store I work at plays music from a company called Playnetworks ( http://www.playnetwork.com/ ) Its regular radio music, but it created using special software, and encoded, onto a CD. The Playnetworks CD players, wont play regular Cds, it has to be in the above mentioned coded format. I would like to make one of these CDs.

    I have found this thread ( http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=71281&page=1 ) from google, but I think its a bit too advanced for me. I got lost at the part where they figured out it was an MP2 file.

    I realize that most of these people are prob using windows machines, but I was wondering if anyone here would be able to help me, maybe just explain it to me, or give it a shot. Any info is much appreciated. Thanks for you time.

    My post will be of no help, but I have a CustomScapes CD from the Abercrombie and Fitch I used to work out and I ran into the same problem. The CD would only play on the stores "special" player and not anywhere else. The cd had to have held as many Mp3's as a data disc could hold, but ultimately, it would always come up as "error" when I put it into my computer or in my car. From what I know, the only/best way is to have the player that's necessary for the disc.

    seems like they used Windows programs that joined .mp2 mono audio files together and a program called datamkr.exe to generate the data.txt file.

    Its ok, I appreciate the SPAM though. :rolleyes:
    If you read the link, only a short way into it is established that winamp can play the files. And even further in, people have created the Disks. So it can be done.

    I re-read the th thread on it and I think Im gonna head to the lab tonight and see if I can get anywhere.
