Music on DVD?


Burch

Question

EMC 7 refuses to burn music (from .wav files) onto a DVD-R disk. Is there some way I can talk it into doing it to a DVD? Or is there some other burning software that will do it for me? (I've never used any other burning software -- started with ECDC v3.5.)

 

I've tried to search the fora/forums, but can't seem to obtain anything usable.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Something to play it on? That was an unstated component of my original question -- an underlying assumption, I'm sure (now). If I buy a "color" TV, I actually assume that it will also display any black-and-white programs that might be received. I won't be concerned about the "Standard(s)" on which the black-and-white portion of the industry was built, and how or whether the sellers in the color portion have extended or revised (i.e., violated) that black-and-white standard.

 

I know nothing about electronics or electricity (except in the form of 0's and 1's), so I might have missed an incidental detail here or there while the electronics/entertainment industry made its gradual transition from LP's & 45's (I won't even bother to mention 33's & 78's).

 

So my original questions seem to be answered all in the negative -- no way for EMC 7 to make an audio disk (exactly like a cd) on a dvd, and no other product is known to do it either/correctly.

 

I just need SOMETHING that will play in my '88 Bronco II's cassette tape player! :(

Does your cassette tape player play discs, or are you being subtly derisive of Lyn's subtly derisive question?

 

EMC 7.x won't make audio DVDs.

EMC 8 and onwards will.

That would be as music -- resulting in filenames like Track01.cda, etc., but on a DVD just like on a CD.

What you are trying to do is not possible. The Audio disc standards that result in what you have listed only apply to CD discs. The only kind of Audio disc you can create on a DVD disc is an MP3 (which is basically data) one.

Well, Windows Media Player v10 burned a bunch of .wav files to a DVD! Just as if it were a cd!

 

However, nothing would recognize the result -- not even WMP itself, nor Windows Explorer, nor Creator Classic, etc. Roxio Disc Copier sorta recognized, and Disc and Device Utility really did -- reported 29 tracks, session closed, etc.

 

But what I really really really want is a standalone player/changer of mp3's on dvd's, having nothing to do with a computer, nor with any need for video/TV, etc., and I'm on the tracks of a couple of items. One is a JVC shelf system HX-D77, the other a Sony changer DVP-NC85H. (Both have 5-disk changers; both say they'll play mp3-on-dvd.) I burned my mp3's on a dvd (using EMC7's Creator Classic) to take to "the store" in case those (or similar) items are on display, and I can try-out my own burns. Then I realized it might be nice to test for "really big cd" mode. So just in case I was doing it wrong.

 

Thanks, and any other advice (for mp3-on-dvd player/changers) would be greatly appreciated!

Burch,

 

Here are some other solutions

 

If you want a DVD full of MP3 files you can burn a data disc with Creator Classic In Easy Media Creator

or

You can burn an MP3 CD with Creator Classic. It's the same as a data disc, except EMC creates a playlist as well. The playlist may or may not be recognized and acted on - it depends on your player

or

You can go to other software. EMC Version 8 onwards will burn a jukebox disc to CD or DVD. Here's what the help file says a Jukebox disc is

or

With EMC 8 onwards you can use the DVD Music Assistant to make you a DVD Music Disc. This is a type of video DVD made from audio files, and it has menus for navigation.

It won't fit as many songs as an MP3 DVD does (220MB of MP3s expanded to 620MB of output in my one) but it will take a lot!

 

Each method has limitations, but I hope one of these helps.

 

 

Regards,

Brendon

Are you talking about burning as data or as a music DVD?
