The player in question is an old hitachi combined CD player/tape player/radio from about a decade ago, it has these marks on top though:
the second mark I can't find with a google image search, in words the mark in question is:
"the word MP3 in thck italicized lettering with a slanted ring around it (think Saturn's rings), the ring is dashed where it crosses infront and below the letters and invisible where it crosses behind them)"
I often burn things to CD-RW but for backups and transfer between computers, not for playing with CD players, I was wondering if there are any differences.
Will CD-RW discs work for this or must discs sold as simply "CD" discs be used?
Are there any special file names which the audio tracks must have, do they have to be called something like "Track001.mp3" and so on or are any names fine? Is there any special folder structure needed, I know that, for exmaple, all digital cameras store their pictures in a folder named "DCIM", is there any equivalent here for audio CD discs?
Will the CD player generally play the files on the disc in a particuar order, alphabetically based on names, or based on file size or on date modified or what? How should one name files on the disc if one wants them to play in a prticular order?
Are there any specific constraints on file format? Do the files have to all be mp3 files or what?
Does the mp3 format have anything like "codecs" which could cause problems, that is to say if I have a random mp3 file or convert a file from another format to mp3 are there different types of mp3 files only some of which the cd player will recognise, analagous to the way that videos have codecs?
Will a CD burnt by me and ready to be played by a CD player still be able to have other files written on to it if there is space left, or does burning on to it the intial number of mp3 files prevent anything else being put on even if there is space left?
What about the "speed" of the CD discs, the discs I have are all CD-RW discs with a 12x speed, will I need to get others with a different speed, or perhaps CD-R discs instead?
For burning CD-RW discs for backups and transferring files between computers windows (I use 8.1) burns the discs fine and they can be read by windows xp systems as well as more modern ones, can windows 8.1's built in cd burning tools burn discs that a CD player can play, or would other programs be needed?
Are there any other potential complications I should be aware of?
