    maybe your player at home doesn't support the type of media you have selected. i assume you are talking about a stand alone dvd player?????

    have you checked that it will support the media you are using?

    daveymac, a CD with MP3's will last you several hours, not 70-80 minutes. A DVD with MP3's is interesting but I don't think DVD players are set up for MP3's on DVD format, they are MP3 capable with CD's only. I am sure that it would be possible to make them able to read MP3's of a DVD+/-R/RW but I figure 4.7 Gb of MP3's at 128K allows recording of at least 1000 average length tracks. That is not something many people may want at this time but you never know...Hope you find that SPECIAL DVD player soon...

    thanks siber , being a newbie to this burning stuff I appreciate your reply. How come a cd -r shows 700mb and 80 minutes if there are several hours on a cd ???

    When you buy a CD with 12-13 songs(60-70 minutes) on it, the music is recorded in all its detail and the 600-700Mb available are all needed. When you transfer your songs to the MP3 format, you 'shrink' all the information down to 3-5Mb per song. The quality is of course reduced but when you are listening to MP3's, you're usually listening to them on a boombox or on a car stereo and you don't notice much difference. With 3-5 Mb per song, you can go a long way with 700Mb...

    I recently burnt approximately 100 albums on one DVD. This allows me to have my whole CD collection available for play without changing disks. The disk stays in the player and the player acts as a jukebox.

    I purchased the DVD player recently, so to see it could be done, I burnt a DVD with MP3's and took it around from store to store. The only brands that played it were Pioneer (displays folders and songs by their names) and Kenwood (only displays folder and songs by their number).

    It works great except you must have the TV on to select the album you want to play. Once selected you can turn the TV off (so long as your DVD player is connected to a stereo).
