    Someone told me there was a loseless format (compressed about 40%) that can run through media player directly from a cd-r. Was he pulling my leg?

    Would be really cool if they did though. I pretty sure that day will come.

    It could come soon. Some CD Players can already play CD ROMs with MP3 files on them.

    I just wish modern dvd standalones would begin supporting .ogg file data discs.

    What the hell, though? At .46c each Canadian for blanks, I'll just do up the rest of my music cds as uncompressed red book clones. Playable on *any* standalone.

    Even though I live in britain I get my cd-r media really cheap. I pay 15p a disc for Discplanet made by Prodisc. I honeslty don't care to compress my music cd's. At that price I just make regular music discs.

    That makes a lot of sense, Chris.

    Me too.

    Nowadays it is cheaper to use cd-r as coasters than buy coasters. Such is that I don't mind using extra cd-r for my music.
