take the disc and put it in the computer and find out as much as you can about it and let us know because I think most of us are not familiar with the jukebox.

once inserted it does not recognize disc
my understanding of it is because of the skin (as described below) there is another way of making these dvd disc with music thus holding about two thousand songs and from i was told by the guy that sold this to is that the music/disc is encrypted.i can send this to you via email for your perusal if wanted.

NOW PICTURE THE BELOW WITH IT BEING IN A SKIN.

A1. THRILLER A2. MAN ON THE MOON
MICHAEL JACKSON MICHAEL JACKSON
A3. BAD A4. BILLY JEAN


B1. THRILLER B2. MAN ON THE MOON
MICHAEL JACKSON MICHAEL JACKSON
B3. BAD B4. BILLY JEAN


C1. THRILLER C2. MAN ON THE MOON
MICHAEL JACKSON MICHAEL JACKSON
C3. BAD C4. BILLY JEAN

A, B, and C, they all have the same title; are they all on the same cd/dvd, and do they sound any difference?

Far too much for 1 CD
by MikeAanders / August 9, 2013 9:06 PM PDT

You won't do it on 1 CD!
Even assuming that your jukebox recognises mp3s, encoding to 128kbps (any lower is rubbish), for very short songs, each song would be at least 3MB in size. That would be 900MB of songs. A CD can only take 700MB.
If it's a typical CD jukebox, you would have to encode to standard CD audio format (two-channel signed 16-bit Linear PCM sampled at 44,100 Hz). You would fit around 25 very short songs on each CD. That's a lot of CDs.

To record a standard audio CD, there's lots of software. You could use Nero. But you will have suitable software on your PC - it's called Windows Media Player.

What type of jukebox?
by glb613 / August 9, 2013 9:07 PM PDT

Even in the MP3 format, you'll be hard pressed to get 300 songs on a single CD.

I think you can

In reply to: What type of jukebox?

I am asking this question because I have a cd that has 300 songs and they are all uncut but the guy that made it for me I can't get him on the phone anymore, so I 'm sure there is a way to do it.

Copying CDs
by MikeAanders / August 9, 2013 10:33 PM PDT
In reply to: I think you can

If you just want to just make a copy of an existing CD:
If your OS is Windows Vista, 7 or 8, you can just copy and paste the files in Windows Explore.
If your OS is XP, you cannot do this (XP came out when CD drives were in their infancy). Download:

and use that. It's free!
You could you that software in Win Vista, 7 also.

addendum to above
by MikeAanders / August 9, 2013 10:54 PM PDT
In reply to: Copying CDs

I have to assume that the audio files on your existing CD are mp3 encoded at some awfully low bitrate.
If so, when using the above software to copy, treat it as a DATA COPY, not AUDIO COPY.

You already have the jukebox?
by Oldartq / August 10, 2013 12:14 AM PDT

mp3 jukebox ain't cheap you know. I don't know if 300 songs would fit a cd but a dvd can definitely do the job.

What does the user manual of the jukebox say about supported and recommended formats/filetypes?
