Part 1. Using Roxio Easy CD Creator > Creating an MP3 Audio CD

Creating an MP3 Audio CD

From the Project Selector, open MusicCD Project in CD Creator.

Select tracks to “rip” or convert to MP3.

Click Convert.

INTRODUCTION

So far, we've burned CDs with true digital audio and saved digital audio as WAV files. We also found that the SoundStream music library files were highly compressed WMA (Windows Media) files. You've probably heard of MP3, which is a compressed audio format popular on the Internet and in portable devices that support its playback. Before we make an MP3 disc, we need to rip (another word for extract) the music. Then we burn a special type of audio CD.


Choose a folder and a filename, and select the MP3 format.

Click Open. The files are “ripped” and named sequentially with the name entered.

Close CD Creator. (Save the project first to reuse it later, but give it another name to keep the original project.)

In the Project Selector (which has reappeared), click to open an MP3CD Project.

TIP

Select MP3 from the drop-down list for CD quality; if you have saved other files in that folder, you will see them there. Enter a name (of the artist) for your sequential files.


From the folder you selected to place your MP3s, drag and drop your stored MP3 files to the MP3CD project.

Watch your status bar; notice you can fit many more MP3s on a CD than CD-audio or WAV files.

Click the Record button to start the burn process.
