i've never seen this discussed here and wondered if any of you convert ur audio, whether it be mp3, ogg, etc. into wave files before u burn them to cd. i've been doing this forever. it turns ur burnt cd's into perfect 1411kbps cd quality discs. some think nero converts to wave automatically, but if it does -- they have a lot of work to do because the quality is a total 180 from tracks converted to wave manually first. cd's u buy in stores r wave files. i use acoustica mp3 to wave converter plus, as i have always been using it. if u burn music cd's i HIGHLY suggest finding a converter. once u do, i bet u'll end up reburning everything u have -- as i did while back.
if this knowledge is so standard and practiced to discuss, my bad. i've never seen it here.
