I am interested in making my own compilation albums on dvd if possible for playback as background music at dinner parties etc. Is this possible?, and if so how do I go about it, what software do I need, can I create a high quality album that will play for over 4 hours?
I have a Evesham Computer with I believe a sony dvd rewriter, Pinacle Instant CD/DVD, Real One Player, Microsoft Media Player, and Stienbergs Clean 4.5.
I intend to play any recordings back through my HiFi useing a Pioneer 565i dvd player that reads dvd's, cd's, mp3 files, cdrw and dvd-rw, any help will be much appreciated
My knowlege of computers is extremly limited, so be explicit, assume I know nothing.
1. You need to extract (rip) the songs you require from each cd, onto your HD (create a new folder for this), in mp3 format at 160kbs for reasonable quality. I think Media Player can do this, but I don't use it, so am not sure. CDEX click here is free & good for this purpose.
2. When you have all the songs you require, use whatever burning package you have to create a data disc.
You could use a CD-R or -RW for this as you can fit about 8 CD albums onto a disc which is more than the 4 hours you require.
Great idea! Possibly this software? click here , and click here for user opinions - good and bad....Note that a free trial is available - it's very restrictive but would prove to you that this is do-able.
