how many songs on cdr disk?

  pookie 15:39 03 Apr 2005


windows xp home sp2, 3Ghz barton, 1Gb ddr, asus a7n8x-x mobo, 55o watt psu, x800pro graphics, all drivers/patches up to date.

sorry if i'm being daft but why can i only get approx 14 songs (average 4 mins each) on a cd r disk (700mb) when 1Gb ipod can store approx 250 songs?

i use media player 10.

many thanks

Audio disk song saved as CDDA file

Ipod song saved as MP3 /WMA file compressed format therefore less quality smaller size hence more songs per disk.

What format are the songs? you should get roughly 20 songs or 200 mp3 to a 700mb disc.A 700mb disc is 80min music.Paddy

As paddy75 says, you can burn a heap of mp3s onto a cdr. So, if your stand alone cd player supports mp3 format, and many do, you can get about 8 hours of music on a cdr disc. I've got the Marantz CD 7300 and it does support mp3s. Very handy if you're sat down with a few friends, and a few more beers, and you don't feel like getting up to change discs!!
