|Instructions for burning CDs
If you wish to burn these audiofiles to the CD, make sure you select
"AUDIO CD" format.
Both mp3 and wma files can be recorded
as audio CD files. The CD burner software automatically
converts these files to CDA format, which
is a standard used by all CD players.
Most CD burning software accepts both WMA and MP3 files, although some
software will not accept WMA files. For this reason, as of March,
2004, we are providing audiofiles in both WMA and MP3 format . For
earlier files, please download the WMA to MP3 converter specified in the HDCN Audio
FAQ list .
If you record wma or mp3 files
directly to the CD without choosing "AUDIO CD", your CD
will be recorded as a Data CD, and only players
capable of decoding those
files will be able to play your talks, and the CD that
you make will not be
playable in a standard CD player.
