ULEAD BURN.NOW USER GUIDE 19
Creating an MP3 disc
MP3 is a popular audio file format that compresses sound files so that they take up only about 1/10th of their original size. Even though it is highly compressed, its sound quality is not noticeably compromised, except on extremely hi-fidelity sound systems. MP3 is ideal for playback on your computer, and for traveling, since compression enables a large number of MP3 files to be stored on disc for playback on a small portable MP3 player or CD player. (A CD player that supports MP3 playback is required for playing MP3.)
Burn.Now lets you easily collect your favorite MP3 files and burn them to disc. To create an MP3 disc:
In the Select a Task dialog box, select Create Disc then select MP3 disc.
Select the disc type (CD, DVD, BD, or HD DVD) and then click OK. This opens the main window.
Choose Burner: Select Burner to select whether to burn directly onto a disc or create a disc image file. (See “Choosing a disc burner”.)
Collect MP3 files from the Source Explorer Window and add them to the Disc Layout Window.
5. When you are ready to burn the MP3 disc, click Burn disc
on the Toolbar.
Compiling an MP3 disc
The Main Window is where you compile and organize MP3 folders and files to burn onto a disc.
To compile MP3s for your MP3 disc:
Add the MP3 files and folders to burn from the Source Explorer Window to the Disc Layout Window using any of the methods mentioned at “Source Explorer Window and Disc Layout Window”.
To reorganize data, select any MP3 file or folder in either pane, and drag it to its new location, up or down the folder structure in the left pane, or directly across to a different folder from the left pane to the right.
To create a new folder, right-click in the right pane then select New Folder from the menu.
To rename a selected folder or file, right-click and select Rename.
5. To delete any MP3 file or folder, select it then click Delete
on the Disc Layout
Window toolbar. Select Disc: Revert to reset all settings of an open project to its previous saved state.
