Overwrite CD or 90 min. CD-R's?

Question

I have an audio CD which looks like it's going to run over 80 min., and I really don't want to cut any tracks. I've heard that I can either overwrite the CD, or purchase 90 min. or even 99 min. CD-R's.

 

Can Toast 7.1 do either of these? If so, how?

 

And how would either play in a standard CD player once the disc was burned? Is one better than the other?

 

Thanks :)

 

All My Best,

Jeffrey

Toast cannot do either of those. You could make an MP3 CD that is playable in a MP3 CD player if you converted the audio to MP3 with iTunes prior to importing to Toast.

How about if I convert the files to FLAC before burning...?

 

And will those play in a standard CD player? (I'm afraid my family don't have CD MP3 players, so it has to be a standard CD).

You're in a tough spot. Do they have a DVD player? Those usually can play MP3 CDs. You also could use Toast to make a Music DVD that is playable on any DVD player.

One does, the rest don't :)

How about an auto-reverse cassette player? Maybe they have an old Walkman. You could record to two sides of a 90 minute cassette and there would just be the brief pause as the tape reversed direction.
