Songs on a disk

How many songs can I fit on a 700mb cd

  accordion 12:52 10 Jul 2009

It depends on the format of the songs, plus the length of them. If they are in MP3 format, you can get most on.

Over 100 would be a fair guess.

If you create a standard audio CD, you can fit 80 minutes worth - this usually equates to 15-20 songs, assuming each song is 4-5 minutes long.

As already mentioned by accordion, you'll get many more on in MP3 format, as this is governed by the files' sizes (which is in turn determined by a song's length & file bit-rate/quality).

So with an average file size of 4-5Mb, you could easily fit 150-175 MP3/WMA/other file format songs on a single 700Mb CD. But first you'll want to determine if your player can actually play MP3/WMA/other file format CDs! G

I have a Cd that I got from my nephew that has every number 1 hit on it from 1953 until 2003.I prefer the 1953 year.

  GaT7 19:46 10 Jul 2009

buteman, that's almost 1000 songs. Are you sure it's not a DVD?

"I prefer the 1953 year." - oops, you're giving away your age there ;-), G

Not forgetting that MP3 will not play in all players

I have a copy of the same disc - it is a DVD.

Probably the same one as I have.I usually have it on my computer desk but no sign of it.Just shows that I don't know the difference from a Cd to a DVD.

  Technotiger 20:44 10 Jul 2009

Yes, I expect it is the same one - bought mine at a boot-sale couple of years ago. Apart from the size shown in My Computer, there is no actual indication that it is a DVD as opposed to a CD.

I too, like the earlier ones!!
