Hey all --

I'm wondering. I have a bunch of ripped CDs on my computer for a class I'm taking (Rock and Roll History..WOO!)

Anyway, these CDs are taking up a LOT of room on my laptop, and I'd like to just burn them all and be done with it. What I'm wondering is, can MP3 files be burned to a blank DVD, or do I have to use a blank CD?

Dumb question, probably -- but I am really curious. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

You can burn MP3s to a DVD as a DVD data disk, sure. The question is what are you going to be playing it back on? It won't work on a regular CD audio player, it probably wouldn't work on a CD player with MP3 playback unless it states specifically that it will read DVD media. Most set-top DVD players will play MP3, I believe they'll do it from a DVD disk. And computers will also play them back fine provided they have a DVD-ROM drive.

Oh, that's not going to be a problem. My laptop has a DVD-ROM drive, so I'll be able to play the MP3s back on that. It's the only thing I use to play back music anyway, since I don't have a stereo. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the response!
