media player question/help

this might be a dumb question but i hope someone can answer it. last night i created a playlist of individual songs and burned a cd. my question is that when i popped the cd in my car i had to turn the volume up higher than i normally would for any cd. i remember having the volume slider on the media player set to a lower volume (was burning at night) when i was burning the cd. would this have had an effect on the volume level that the cd was burned at? should i go and burn another cd with the volume level (on wmp 9) set in the middle or a slightly higher setting? any help would be greatly appreciated.

That is what they may call "equalizing of MP3 volume level"

In reply to: media player question/help

The equalizing of MP3 volume level is something your AudioCD creation tool may provide. You didn't tell what you used, so I can't tell you if it has such.

The Windows Media Player volume does not affect the volume of the cd you created.

You might need adjust the volume of the MP3s with tools such as:
