Chapter 43. Digital Music and DVD Movies > Creating Your Own MP3 CDs

Creating Your Own MP3 CDs

Since MP3s are compressed, you can store about 10 times as much music on a single CD using this format. And the process is exactly the same as for copying any other files to a CD. You don't even need to use Windows Media Player if you want to create a CD that plays MP3 files.

Before you do this, however, be aware that most regular CD players can only play regular audio CDs and won't play MP3s, though you can now buy CD players that play MP3, WMA, or both. I bought a portable CD player that plays MP3 files for $69—just a bit more than I would have paid for a regular portable player. I can now store up to 10 hours of audio on a single CD that cost about 50 cents. Not a bad deal.
