There are two kinds of CD discs you can burn on Windows. First is the Audio CD, which can be played in the car stereo, home audio systems/stereos, computer CD drive, and more. Second is the Data CD, which is usually used to back up files, and basically only play on computers. A small number of car CD players support formats like MP3 so they will be able to read Data CD. Under the circumstances, many people prefer to burn Audio CDs instead of Data CDs.
Audio CD is time-based. A standard Audio CD can hold 80 minutes/700MB. That means it will accommodate up to 80 minutes of sound in theory. If you have 100MB of audio files that add up to 2h, you can still only burn 80min to the Audio CD. How is that?
When you are burning an Audio CD, all the audio files’ encoding is still in accordance with the CD-DA Red Book specifications (Audio CDs are uncompressed audio specifically 16-bit stereo LPCM at 44.1 Khz). That’s why it’s time-based and the output size will usually be much larger than the original file size.
In this post, you can quickly learn how to burn songs to an Audio CD on Windows 10, 8/8.1, 7. Keep reading.
