mp3 music les

the music compression technology mp3 (mpeg audio layer 3) reduces the digital data

of an audio cd signicantly while maintaining cd-like sound quality. with mp3 you

can record up to 10 hours of cd-like music on a single 12cm cd-rom.

how to get music les either download legal music les from the internet to your computer hard disc or

create them from your own audio cds. for this, insert an audio cd into your

computers cd-rom drive and convert the music using an appropriate encoder

software. to achieve a good sound quality, a bit rate of 128 kbps or higher is

recommended for mp3 music les.

how to organize music les in order to easily handle the large number of music les on a cd-rom,

you can organize them in folders (albums).

the tracks of an album will be played in alphabetical order. if you want

to arrange them in a certain order, let the le names start with numbers.

for example:

001-ONEWORLD.MP3

002-FIRESTARTER.MP3

003-DEEP.MP3

the albums will be arranged in alphabetical order. If albums are located in an album,

they will be played after this album. albums without mp3 les will be skipped.

if there are mp3 les which you did not put into an album, you will nd them in the

album Various with album number 0. various is the rst album that will be played.

when playing a disc with cd audio tracks and mp3 les, the cd audio tracks will be

played rst.

general information

act400_eng 22/7/02 15:13 Page 7

how to make a cd-rom with mp3 les use your computers cd burner to record (burn) the music les from your hard disc

to a cd-rom. use either ISO 9660 disc format or UDF. some cd burner software like

e. g. DirectCD support the UDF format.

make sure that the le names of the mp3 les end with .mp3.

supported formats this set supports:

disc format: ISO 9660, joliet, multisession, UDF,

enhanced music cd, mixed mode cd

mp3 bit rate: 32320 kbps and variable bit rate

total number of music les and albums: around 350

(with a typical le name length of 20 characters)

note: the number of music les that can be played depends on the length of

the le names. with short le names more les will be supported.

all trademarks used are owned by their respective owners.
