You can't unless you keep then as MP3's

You mean compress them into a compressed archive so you burn it as a data disk because compressing the music would signifacntly reduce the audio quality. To compress it into an archive us WinRAR click here and here's a tutorial on how to use it click here

Mp3 are already compressed so compressing with winrar will have little effect.

WinRAR compression is different from compressing the actual audio.

I have just compressed a 70mb mp3 album with winrar on the best setting and the file size came out at 69.5mb!!

Well atleast it's a reduction, use Uharc it's a better multimedia compressor click here

Just done a test with Uharc and the same 70mb mp3 file came out at 69.3mb.
Anyway that's not the question Jimmy Splash wants to be able to fit two albums converted from MP3 on to one disc and as far as I'm aware it can't be done.

Yes it can, I've got a copy of a 2 disk album that has been compressed down to 168mb (just the audio) and the audio is pretty good quality aswell.

Jimmy just rip the music then convert them to mp3 format.

The heading of the question is burning MP3's so they are already in MP3 format.If all he wanted to do was put MP3 albums onto a CD then he could at a push fit 10 albums onto a CD.

Jimmy hasn't replied yet. How big are all the files Jimmy?
