Steps to create mp3 for car player
Just bought a car with a 6 disc cd player. The player is mp3 compatible. Trying to create mp3 cd's from some regular cd's. It's been a while since I did this and I've forgotten some steps.

Use Audiograbber to rip wave from original
Encode with lame to mp3 (What are best parameters?)

I end up with several folders containing tracks. How do I create an mp3 cd from this that will play on my cars player?

EAC is probably the best cd ripper around.

check here for setup guide

here's guide to get lame to work with eac

it might seem a bit complicated at first but when you've set them up once, next time you have to click only one button to rip a cd.

Not sure that doing mp3 to listen into the car needs so much care.

Winamp or even Nero "AudioCD to mp3" built-in feature should be way enought.

I mean writing the physical mp3 cd itself. Is it a data disk with folders for each album, etc.

Yes, thats all, each album one folder.
I think only 8 characters names are allowed.
MP3 tags as usual (you can edit they with winamp).

Luis is right but the car CD drive is probably supporting Joliet, and in this case this is 31 chars that are allowed. You should tried with CD-RW.

My car player sucks, it's the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa player.
The thing only supports file names and everything has to be burnt on the root of the CD.
Simply sucks :(.

Mine's a Ford Five Hundred with a 6CD changer. Burned my mp3's with NERO. Working fine.
