not play on the cd player. They totalled 648mb.
However, burning the same files using musicCD project, I had over 100mb
and about 6min, and it played in the cd player.
How did that happen if the number and total file size didnt change?
Also, is there a difference between music and data CD-Rs?

A data CD has more redundancy for error correction than does a music CD. This is
because a music CD will attempt to interpolate missing bits so that you will not
notice the read errors. A data CD requires more redundancy because all read
errors must be corrected to preserve data integrity. Thus a WAV file with its
added redundancy will take more space that its equivalent CDA format.
Besides the difference in redundancy and error correction, the audio CD (CDA)
format is not a file that is recognized by windows, and windows format files
e.g. WAV are not recognized by a music CD player. The problem with CDA not being
a valid file format is the reason you must extract it to WAV format to do any
