audio CD and mp3 CD? what is the difference?

by preppystud / October 26, 2006 7:20 AM PDT

If I burn an audio CD, I can only save 10 or more.

but if i create a data CD with mp3 files, it seems that i can save a lot.

So what is the difference b/w an audio cd and a mp3 cd? will they sound the same? why is that audio cd can only save so much?

The question is in that FAQ. I got the answer in 2 clicks.

-> Here's my question. Isn't it better you can find answers on your own rather than wait for responses here?

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
