copying mp3 files to dvd-r

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a bunch of mp3 files I wanted to put on a DVD-R. My computer will let me copy them from my hard drive to a CD-R using Microsoft XP, but for some reason it does not recognize DVD-Rs. It is a DVD-RW drive as I can use ImgBurn to copy DVDs. Since DVD-Rs can hold many more mp3s than a CD-R can, I'd like to be able to do this.

 

Thanks

Just drag and drop into Build mode ('Write files/folder to disc').

 

Use the 'Advanced' input mode, it'll probably make organising them a little easier.

Thanks. I've added the files in the build mode. Do I need to adjust the settings at all? I just want everything copied as is to the DVD-R and keep them in the mp3 format.

 

If everything is ok, do I just click build and will it write to the DVD-R?

 

Thanks again.

You should use the 'ISO9660 + Joliet' file system option as it's the most compatible with standalone players for that type of disc.

 

That's about all you should need to change though.

Thanks. Does the output have to be to a file or can it save it directly to the DVD-R? As of now, i can't get it to save to the dvd

You can use whatever suits you best!

 

The output from the program is identical, just it either gets sent to a file on your hdd or sent to your burner. (It's a little more complicated than that but you get the idea!)
