    When making an mp3 CD for playback in cars, regular players, etc., is one limited by the 74/80 minute time limit, or can you max out a disc's capacity?

    In playing around with it, it seems that you can make an mp3 data disc that can use all the disc's space, but can only be played on a PC or be used to transfer files. Making an audio disc seems to allow near-universal playback (depending on gear), but is limited to 74/80 minutes. Is this right, or am I missing something? Thanks.

    I am not 100% sure of what you mean, but, when making an mp3 cd what you are doing is just putting the mp3 files on a 'data' cd and its only limited by the amount of data you can store on the cd(650/700 MB). When making an 'audio' cd you are converting the mp3 files to a different format to enable playback on regular cd players and is time limited(74/80 minutes). All cd players can play 'audio' cd's but not all can play mp3 cd's. I hope this helps.

    I've found that I need to ensure that the CD's ISO session is 'finished' properly, in order to be able to use the CD in my CD-Mp3 players. With data CDs on the other hand, I can as long as I save the ISO details, I can finish the CD at a later date (after adding further detail for example.) FYI, I tend to use Nero under WinXP.
