"unsupported format" when adding .MP3

Recommended Posts

But, ehmmm, James, from the screenshot I take it you want to make a REAL Audio CD? With MP3 as input there really is no point in doing that, you'll get all the restrictions of an Audio CD with sound on it that's Lossy anyway. Yes, it will play in a "real" CD player, but that's about it. I mean, lossy sound cannot suddenly be un-lossied again just by burning an Audio CD. What's gone is gone and stays gone, I'm afraid. Hence formats such as FLAC, Monkey's Audio or Apple Lossless etc.

Hermie, if all James has available at some location to play music is an Audio CD player, then that's a perfectly valid reason to make an Audio CD.  Agreed, you don't "get anything back" from the compression, but if that's the format he needs/wants, I say, "write away." 

I still have a vehicle that has an Audio CD player.  It doesn't play MP3 discs.  At home, I also have an Audio CD changer.  Again, it doesn't support data/MP3 discs.  (But since it holds 300 CDs...)  So, just like printed photos, it's a valid media.
