All Helpful Ways to Make MP3 CD

Want to learn how to make an MP3 CD? It’s actually not as difficult as you might think. Nowadays, all you really need is a good program, a blank CD, and a DVD/CD Driver to get you started. Of course, that’s not to say that each program is created equally. For example, some of the programs we’re going to be introducing down below are focused on areas outside of just regular DVD/CD burning. Whilst others are made specifically for creating and burning DVDs and CDs in a way that ensures no loss of quality for your MP3 files. Continue reading to learn more.

The second program that we’re going to be introducing to you is the Windows Media Player. This program comes built-into Windows OS computers, so you might find it more helpful if that is the case.

Continue reading to learn exactly how it works.

Part 3. How to Make an MP3 CD with iTunes

Our third MP3 CD maker is iTunes. The process of making an MP3 CD with iTunes is pretty similar to the previous. Both programs, Windows Movie Player and iTunes, serve primarily as media players as well. There’s a lot of similarities to go around, the most important of which — of course — is the fact that iTunes will allow you to burn an MP3 CD.

How to Make an MP3 CD with iTunes

Step One: Create a Playlist

Much like with Windows Movie Player, you’re going to need a playlist to burn. Upload your MP3 files into the iTunes library, select audio for your playlist, right-click, and choose the following options to create a playlist: Add Playlist > “New Playlist”.

Part 4. How to Make an MP3 CD with VLC

This last one continues from the same vein as the previous two. VLC, after all, is another media player. That, much like iTunes and Windows Media Player, offers an MP3 burn option that you can use with a bit of finagling. The process is similar to the previous two as well. Requiring you to create a playlist that will then serve as the backbone of the MP3 CD that you want to burn.

How to Make an MP3 CD with VLC

Step One: Create a Playlist
