I am using ML CD burner to make a bunch of mp3s on CD for my car. When I delete the file extention (.mp3) from the file, it shows up again after the name of the artist and song on my CD player.


Is there a way to have artist - song, not (artist-song-.)mp3


I have tried using toast and it doesn't even show the track info after I burn.

    With Toast you have to check CD Text......


    As for the issue with the file ext and CD Burner...Are you burning as MP3s for an MP3 CD or converrted to waves for an audio cd?

    AOS was asking if it's a Data CD with mp3s on it or a Music CD, the mp3s are converted to wav files before burning.


    Some CD players can read data disks, in which case it's your CD player that has recognized the file format and most likely added the mp3 extension in the display.


    How many mp3s are you burning?
