What are MP3 files?
MP3 files are special audio data files. MP3 files are much smaller than the standard audio files, such as you would find on a music cd. A music cd can hold, at best, 70 or 80 minutes worth of audio. However, with the MP3 file format 24+ hours worth of audio can be placed onto a single cd. Needless to say these data cd's are not standard cd's. They are designed primarily to be played on your computer, or one of the new MP3 cd players. Any good electronics store now sells MP3 cd players.
Will these shows play on my regular CD player?
Do the CD'S work on portable or other MP3 players?
Yes, however, not all MP3 players work with every type and language CD-R. I suggest testing out an MP3 player before you purchase it, to make sure. Some MP3 players are quite fussy about what they will and will not play. Take one of my cd's with you to the store when shopping for a player that works well.
I use 700mb CD-R disks, not 650mb CD-R disks. Make sure your MP3 player will support the 700mb CD-R disk. Also, make sure the player you are considering supports the "Juliet" (windows) language CD-R and not just the "ISO9660" language CD-R.
I do not guarantee my disks to work on your mp3 player (Portable, or other). I do guarantee that they will work on your computer.
Here is a note I received from a customer regarding his mp3 cd player search:
In case anyone asks in the future, here is what I found out. I purchased a Phillips EXP50317 ($149.99+ tax) at the Good Guys and it plays the shows very well. The problem I had with the player was that the "resume to the last place I was, feature" didn't always work. I would stop the program and when I went back to it, it had restarted from the beginning of the episode. And the Fast Forward was painfully slow.
So I exchanged it for an IRIVER IMP350 ($179.99+ tax) and it is an OTR listeners dream machine. The fast forward can be set for 1x,2x,4x and 6x. Plus about 40 other customizable options to setup the player exactly how the user wants it. An added bonus I found was, when I removed the RMT disk 1, and put in another disk and played it, then when I put the RMT disk 1 back in it remembered exactly where I left off the last time I listened to it. I'm so happy I just ordered the High Quality xminus one series and payed with PP.
