Following the purchase of my A Class Mercedes, I have noticed that
accoridng to the Audio manual you can create MP3 Data CD's to play in
However after several failed attempts, I am unable to complete this
task. Has anyone had success created data CDs for their car and if so
what software was used?
I have tried 2 different MP3 creators and 3 different burn applications
all to no avail. Any help will be gratefuly received.
commonly known that the MB head units are finicky about user rolled
should try burning using very slow speed, test/burn setting (instead of
burning), or even verying the intensity of the laser if your burner
Thanks for the replys.
I have tried different burn speeds and testing beforehand all to no
avail. I have sent an email to Mercedes to see if they can shed any
I was hoping that someone out there has managed to produce MP3's on
this system and can advice me what they used.
Hi, I don't know too much about this subject but I've found the information
very useful. There are several forums therein that might be worth a post.
One thing though... I've not seen any documentation that describes the
Audio 20 as being MP3 compatiable. Are you sure it is? I've seen talk of
it handling CD-R, but not MP3. I'd be interested if there's a web resource
that mentions MP3 and Audio 20 in the same sentance.
This is an extract from the Owner's Manual Audio 20
"Compatible MP3 Data Media - When in MP3 mode, the CD changer can read
the following types of data media: CD-DA, CD-R and CD-RW"
"Compatible File Systems and Compression Types - The following
compression types are compatible MP2, WMA and WAV" Only use MP3 tracks
with a minimum bit rate of 128 kBit/s and with stated scan rates.
There is no mention that this is for a different device, i.e. no astrix
marking that this may not be an option on some models.
I will check out your link to see if that can shed any light.
Don't you find it frustrating that one DVD holds more MP3's than an
entire CD changer full of MP3 CD's. Why are the car & car audio makers
so behind in technology? A Taiwanese player costs practically the same
as a CD player.
Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...
