I have a CD I need to burn, but I want to burn it to play on an mp3-CD format

Okay, I figured that I could come here to get an answer to my question.
I have a CD I need to burn, but I want to burn it to play on an mp3-CD format instead of the regular audio CD format. (70 songs compared to like 20 on the CD) but I've never burned an MP3-CD before, and I really don't know how.

I use Nero version 5.

If anyone can help I'd appreciate it, alot.

Just burn it as an data disc. There is no "MP3-CD" format, but it's simply a data disc that contains only mp3 files on it.

You just burn it as data. In Nero, this would be "CD-ROM (UDF)."

Would CD-ROM (ISO) be better? I'm not sure (UDF) would be able to be read by most MP3 players. Though I'm not sure about that.

I think ISO would be better too. As far as I know UDF is just needed when individual files are very large.

I've burned it as a data disk and it worked. Thank you all for the help. I don't think I could've gotten it to work if I haden't had it.

Thanks!

You may want to get a program like MP3Gain to make all of the MP3's on the CD the same volume. (Something I keep forgetting to do) It makes listening to them much more enjoyable.
