i been looking at getting a ne w cd player to replace my alpine 9823, been seeing plenty of cd players that can play mp3's or wma, which is suppose to be smaller, so you can play or fit more songs.

I was wondering how do you load this songs into the cd player from my computer? thanks

u dont load them in, you burn them in mp3 format to a normal cd

Yup. You burn the MP3's onto a CD, you don't load them into the headunit.

However, there are some CD players that have an internal harddrive that you "load" songs onto. However, these are mucho expensive.

ok well i burn cd's all the time , but the ones i dp have a 80min or 80mb limit, which is about 18 songs..... so how do I burn it into a MP3 format?

800mb limit should be a lot more than 18 songs... more like 100 or more. ur burning an audio cd to only get 18 ..u need to burn a data cd with the mp3 files on it. dont convert the files to cda

Depends on the bitrate...I usually can get 30 or 40 in 320K.

or you can use windows default writer. Pop in a blank cd, go to my computer, then click on your cd drive and drag and drop the files into the blank cd window. Or be like me and use a cracked version of Nero 6 Ultra and drag and drop :P

I actually went out and bought Cakewalk Pyro for my burning/ripping work...:D buying software to rip CD's, I figure it all balances out in the end.
