View Full Version : MP3 CD Burning
16th August 2006, 18:20
I have been a user of winamp for many years and have just recently started using it exclusively. I was reading that if I bought the Pro version I would be able to burn MP3 CD's off of my playlists.
I guess I should have known since AOL took over the features people would actually want would never be included. I feel like I have been ripped off and just paid for something I could have been using for free all along.
Thanks for nothing.

If you knew all along that you could do the task via other programs for free, why did you pay for winamp to begin with?
"Excuse me, ma'am, how much are those complementary peanuts?"

for the 10000 time by now
you paid for the burning and ripping engine that is third party software and GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH AOL
and since you have been using winamp for many years you also should know that AOL has been owning Shoutcast/winamp for some years already.

Question is, where exactly did you read that it did that?, unlikely to have been on this site, and certainly not on the product specification/ordering page...
Dosn't say anywhere on there that it burns MP3 discs, you might as well say you'd read it makes toast for you as well and were dissapointed when you found out it didn't.
So question is where did you read it, and why did you belive it over the offical site specification that clearly dosn't mention it???

i guess he was refering to:
"Burn CDs Faster - Up to 48x!"

I too wish mp3 burning was possible with winamp, along with the other normal complaints (winamp should play DVDs, etc.)
I know not to complain too much about it because I use the free version.
I guess this thread goes to show you that one must pay very close attention to what he gets when it costs money.

I can't imagine many situations where this line would be used.

"The melon makes a good snack"
would probably be more prevalent.

I'll hazard a guess and say mp3 burning is on the roadmap somewhere, I'm sure I recall seeing the option in the preferences on one of the 5.x beta, can't recall if it worked or not now.

there was a iso/mp3 burner done but to erm say the quality of that plugin was good would cause me to take a number of hot forks and insert them into my body to relieve the pain of that evil evil thing. maybe something like that will appear again (my nero powered attempt stalled due to work/real life taking up too much of my time :/ )

That really would kik ass if I could burn mp3 CDs with Winamp. My car and truck both play mp3 CDs, and having a ton of music on each CD makes storing music in the vehicle a lot easier.
Currently I have to use Roxio Easy CD Creater, but that isn't free, nor is it stable. I'm not sure whether to blame that software, or the the hardware (burner and blank CDRs) for occasional failed attempts at burning mp3 CDs. I'm guessing one in 5 attempts fails and wastes a blank CDR.

Have you tried burnatonce? It's free, super-easy, and works well. Try reducing your burn speed if you're getting coasters though, some things just don't live up to their ratings.

I still don't understand why people are expecting a media player to burn CD's of any form.
I mean, get dedicated software. Even if WA could burn whatever you wanted, then still it would be slower than other programs that use the same engine because WA is created to play media files.

Good point, but we love winamp so much we'd rather use it for everything. It should burn mp3 CDs, play DVDs, 12 inch video laser discs, cassettes, vinyl records, and reel-to-reel tapes.
It should answer our phone and screen for telemarketers and give a good bitching to the person calling.
It should not only wash and dry our clothes, but fold and put them away too, after patching or sewing all the holes shut.
On top of that it should buy us wings, beer, and gasoline.
Although I'd have to get the celery, carrots, and ranch dip on my own. I wouldn't want to ask too much of winamp.
