MP3 CD Converter
MP3 CD Converter is a tool for making audio CDs for use in your car or home stereo. The program is fairly simple to use and just a couple of clicks will get you burning. It has a very simple add file interface that allows you to easily take files out of the queue by unchecking the selection. A built in search feature will also scan your drive for additional tracks. You can test each track before burning with a built in mini-player, a good idea to ensure quality tracks are burned. The program also has an option for you to normalize the volume of the tracks you want to burn to keep the sound levels even throughout the CD you make. The CDDB support feature lets you pull track and artist info off the Internet automatically without the hassle of having to type it all yourself. ID3 tags are also supported. The software is also very small which is a nice plus and testifies to efficient software coding.
MP3 CD Converter wasn't perfect though and has a few drawbacks. The program does not incorporate BURN-Proof technology like MP3 CD Burner and is prone to errors burning at max speed and while running other programs. However, after reducing the burn speed to 4X, the program worked flawlessly and burned a very nice sounding CD.
Despite its setbacks with burning speed, this program is worth a try. The low registration price and ease of use set it apart from most other programs. The trial version will allow you to burn 10 tracks at a time. After registering the program, you get free upgrades for life which is a very valuable feature. For help registering for full capabilities, see our MP3 CD Converter registration guide. Now supports Windows XP.
If you are a Windows 2000 user and are having trouble, try downloading and installing this ASPI layer. ASPI layers are not supported by Adaptec and Microsoft in Win 2000 but are needed to run many of these kinds of programs.
