Hi I'm not sure if this is the right spot to put this but here i go. K I have a Koss MS2002 head unit. Now I know its nothing fancy but it came with the car and I don't have the money to replace it. I was wondering what format do I have to convert mp3s to be able to play on my cd player. I've looked on the web but I mostly just get adds for converters. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Dakota.

just about any burning software will automatically convert them to playable format. in nero if you go under "make an audio cd" it will do it all at once. just pick the songs you want and let it convert and burn.

Just about anything will do that. I-tunes, windows media player,.....they all will burn CDs with just a few clicks. Just download the latest versions and you'll be set.

And if it asks you what specific format you will want .WAV files

I was afraid of that. :-P

I haven't seen wav in a long time. Usually I see "burn" or "audio" or something.

You'll want to burn a standard Red Book audio CD (not a Yellow Book CD-ROM with WAV files). WAV files are the easiest to make audio CDs with as they are already PCM encoded just like an audio CD. You can burn audio CD with MP3 files as the source, but then your burning program has to decode them in realtime, in addition to the I/O overhead of burning the disk. Because this has to be done in realtime, it may skip parts of the file to keep pace with the burner, resulting in errors in audio output (this is typically only a problem with older computers).

The easiest way to convert MP3s to WAVs is to use Winamp. Winamp has a Disk Writer plugin that diverts the output from it's MPEG decoder to the harddisk instead your sound card (You can find it in Options --> Plug-ins --> Output --> Nullsoft Disk Writer plug-in) To use it, pick a directory to save your files, then just load your songs into the playlist and click on play button. Winamp will race through the files and convert them to WAVs. Remember to switch it back to DirectSound Output when you're done.
