I bought a hewlett packard 6648 and it has a CD writer. It uses Adaptec to write the cd's. I downloaded a bunch of mp3 files this weekend to burn a cd, to play in the fiero of course. Well it seems that it will not copy mp3's to the disk, keeps coming up wrong file type, must be wav file. Is there a way to convert these files? Or do you know how to use this program to burn CD's. It has been driving me crazy. Any help would be appreciated.

If your stereo is not setup to play mp3's you'll need to burn them in wav format. If you need software to do that let me know. I can either send you the programs or tell you where you can download them. Also check out my winamp skins at http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=933836&a=6826577

I use a program called "MP3 Studio 2000". It will write MP3s to a CD on-the-fly in a format that can be played on any CD player. It's only $19 at Best Buy.

Ofcourse you should only use programs like these to burn CDs of your own or copyright-free music. Anything else would be a copyright infringement.

I use a little program called MP3 CDMaker. Takes it directly from the MP3's, and can even equalize the volume so one song doesn't whisper, while another blasts you right out of hte car. Even has a really easy and useful tool for printing CD Covers.

Erm... don't have the URL for it, but a quick search should find it.

If you have Winamp, it will convert MP3s directly to wav files.
Right click on the Winamp control panel.
Scroll to "options".
Click "preferences".
Look under the "plug-ins" heading. Click "output".
The first option should be "Nullsoft disk writer plug-in".
Highlight that line, then click "Configure".
Designate the folder that you want your wav files to be written to.

Whenever you "play" any file, it will be written as a wav file to that folder.
Only takes a couple of seconds. It's very fast.

You have to change the output back, to listen to your files.

CD Creator Version 4 will burn the MP3s to CD for use in a regular CD player. I have found all of the previous versions of CD Creator to be completely hokey. There is always something that they wont do.

With v4, all you do is select create audio cd, and then when it asks for the sources, you just drag the MP3 files into the track layout window and clik create.

It sounds like you may have version 3.5

I use a program I downloaded from www.goldwave.com It works pretty good. You'll also need about 1 gig of free space to convert your mp3's into .wav files. When you decompress a mp3 into a .wav file it can easily take up 50 mb. I installed an old 1 gig HD I had lying around to store my .wav's until they were burned onto a CD.

I just installed a cd burner yesterday. My son already made an audio cd with it. I'm not sure where he downloaded the program but it is called "MP3 to wave converter"
