converting audio cds to mp3 to use on flashdrive(wiselink)

by chunkyhomeboy / December 24, 2008 1:41 AM PST

I need to burn my purchased cds in mp3 format in order to listen to them via wiselink flash drive on my pn50a55o samsung tv. So far i've been successful uploading my jpeg picture files, but music folders are not recognized. I have most of my cd audio collection uploaded to I Tunes, but I'm open to using any other device such as windows media player if that medium makes this process easier.

Please advise..

Good idea...

Kees is right.

Windows Media Player is probably the easiest way to do this.

You can do .wav or .mp3 with v.11. If you go with mp3, you can also choose your bitrate (quality of rip). I'm a 320kbps kind of guy (highest quality), but you can often cut the file size in half by going with 128kbps.

Play a bit with it and see which you prefer.

Happy Hoidays!

Thanks for the info. One more question if you don't mind. I transferred my music to view with wiselink photo/music viwer on my tv,unfortunately songs sound different, almost two octaves higher and faster. How do i get them to play at regular speed?

Happy Holidays also.

Speed of Replay
by fihart / February 7, 2009 6:57 PM PST

My old Samsung T55 MP3 player has a setting for replay speed -- possibly your model does too.

Of course, that's assuming you can find your way through the manual and then manage to navigate to the appropriate menu -- my T55 has a 60 page manual and the most bewildering control system I've ever come across.

And don't get me started on the (now missing) proprietary cable -- lucky the player is made of thick aluminium or I'd have deliberately crushed it under foot by now. A horror -- I will never buy anything from Samsung again.

Missed that..

Wow, I missed that post.

No, I don't know why they would play faster. Does the television play them in normal speed if you're only playing the music?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
