Software free conversion MP3 to Tracks

by Blondi5142 / April 7, 2013 12:00 PM PDT

I have tons of MP3 but I'd like to listen to them in my car. I see all this conversions software but it says CD to MP3. How do I know what to look for? The wording is confusing to me. Is there a free program that will do the trick or one for sale? MP3's to CD Format also what extension are tracks under? . WMA .au .acc ???????
PLZ its driving me nuts

It's free, there are tutorials so I'll stop here and write "It's what I use."

don't need conversion

if the songs are in CD then might be in CDA format which cannot be converted to any other format. other wise if they are already in mp3 format then you just need to load in to device those mp3.

Sorry to note your post is both inapplicable and wrong.

The OP writes he has mp3's. So they aren't "in CD". But it's quite easy to 'rip' a CD to, say, .wav or .mp3 format. Many programs (including Windows Media Player and iTunes) do it for you.

They are already in mp3-format, but but car audio doesn't play mp3's. That's his problem. So suggesting to load them into some device doesn't really help him.

Since the average audio-CD can only contain, say 20, tracks, that will be a lot of CD's (2000 tracks = 100 CD's). CBBURNERXP would be fine to make them it, but it's a lot of work.

Why not buy an audio-system in your car that can play mp3-cd's or has an input to connect it with our mp3-player (such as an iPod)? Much easier!

As for the extension: since you don't see the files in Windows Explorer, it's useless to talk about extensions. All you see is a 44-byte file with cda-extension, but that's just a pointer to the track that's somewhere on that disk, but invisible for you.
