Frequently Asked Questions
What is MP3 CD Maker?
MP3 CD Maker is a hip software tool that helps you to create normal
audio CDs from your favorite MP3 files. You can then play them
in your regular stereo or car CD player!
can I do with it?
Custom CDs! Make mixes to rock the x-mas party, make gifts for
your friends, road trip tunes, hot date tunes, hey - you can
even customize the CD cover! Replace your scratched CDs with
CDs that you burn yourself from MP3s.
does it work?
Simply drag and drop the songs you want onto the main screen,
hit the record button, and in a short time you will have a custom
CD! With MP3 CD Maker, you can choose to burn 74 or 80-minute
audio CDs on either 74 or 80-minute CDR/RW discs. There is no
need to convert to WAV! Your CD is burned directly saving your

makes "Normalizing" the volume levels so cool?
I'm glad you asked! MP3 CD Maker has a "Normalizing" feature
that lets you ensure that all MP3s in a set have the same volume
level. Different MP3 files may have different volume levels.
If you burn the CD without normalizing, the volume of songs
in this CD might be sometimes louder and sometimes softer. But
if you use normalizing, I guarantee you it will give you the
same volume level songs in the CD. Simply check the "Normalizing"
box before you hit the record button.
What is the system requirement?
You will need a Pentium 100 PC or higher, 16MB RAM or more. The
operating system should be Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000,
Windows NT 4.0, or Windows ME. Of course, you must have a CD Recorder.
Please check out the supported devices
page to see if your CD Recorder is supported.
Does MP3 CD Maker use a lot of hard disk space?

does this error mean: "Cannot send CUE sheet"?
The problem is that you have selected too many songs. Please
reduce some songs in your song list and try again.
My CDRW disc will not play in our home or car stereo system
- What's up?
Not all players get along with all brands of CD-R/RW media.
You will need to find a combination of recorder, media, and
player that get along. Sometimes the CD player will have no
problem playing the tracks, but will have a great deal of difficulty
seeking between tracks or moving fast-forward. Using a different
brand of media or a different CD player may produce better results.
Some media work better at 1x, 2x, or 4x speeds. You may find
that slowing down or speeding up the recorder helps. We found
"KODAK Gold ULTIMA" CD-R disc to be very good for making CDs.
Why did my CD-R eject between the "test" and "write" passes?
The problem is that the recording speed is too high. You should
try lowering the recording speed to 1x.
I have entered the registration code, but I can still record
only 4 songs - Why?
Perhaps you have entered a wrong registration code.You can solve
this problem by removing the file "MP3CD.KEY" from MP3 CD Maker's
working directory. Generally, MP3 CD Maker is installed to "C:\Program
Files\MP3CD\". After you remove the file "MP3CD.KEY", re-launch
MP3 CD Maker, and type the registration code again. When registered
correctly, the "buy now" and "register" buttons will disappear
from the program's main screen. If they do not, the code has
not been entered correctly. Please try again.
