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!!
