Hi!

 

I just burned a CD (a Maxell CD-R Music XL-II) with CDBurnerXP. The songs I wanted to burn were mp3 files from my PC. The result is a CD with mp3 files. Although I selected "Create an Audio-CD" the programm didn't convert the mp3 files to cda files. My CD player doesn't play mp3 files. So, the just burned CD is worthless. Do I have to use specific settings so that the programm convert the mp3 files to cda files when creating an Audio-CD?

It's pretty much impossible that you ended up with MP3 files if you chose "burn audio disc". My guess is you didn't choose that option in the first place (by mistake). Or Windows explorer is stil showing contents of a different disc because of caching (re-insert the disc then).

The files on the cd are definitely mp3 files - no cache problems here. I re-inserted the cd after I attempted to play it on my stand alone cd player (which did not work). After that I burned another cd via Windows Media Player and doing so I got a cd with cda files. This cd can be played by the stand alone cd player.

 

I didn't remember whether I selected "Burn Audio Disc" or not. But I think I selected it. What else should I selected? However, I think I will use the Windows Media Player in the future, because I don't want to risk to waste more cds.

 

But thanks for Your answer.

This matters though. If you don't select it, you won't get an audio disc and thus no CDA files.
