The advantage is that MP3 files are highly compressed so that the CD would hold far more than the usual 80 minutes. However, you would need a player able to play MP3s to listen to this CD. A computer is needed to convert the MP3 to a conventional audio format. If these are broadcast, all you would need is an MP3 capable player.
I attend seminars that broadcast over fm radio for the hearing impaired. I record these sessions from a digital fm radio to cassettes anywhere from 1 hour to 6 hours. I was told I could accomplish this in an easier way if I recorded from an fm digital mp3 recorder to cds. Is this a complicated procedure? Can the sessions be burned to CDs or do they have to remain in mp3 format. Being unfamiliar with the procedures does anyone have any input. Also, can a novice learn this with minimal problems. Any input would be appreciated. I would spend less time changing cassettes,and easier handling of cds instead of cassettes.
