For a CD to "Play" audio in any cd player, the material needs to be
a the "red" book format.  This is the "audio cd" option that you encounter
in most burning software.  Red book audio must then be "ripped" to
use it on the computer.

If you want to "archive" the files, then you would burn a "data" or
ISO 9660 CD.  This will NOT "play" in audio cd players, but should
be readable by all computers.

Incidentally, the same content in a wav 16 bit 44.1 file will be slightly
larger than the same content in a red book file.

ISO 9660 =3D
