How to Use MP3 CDs

How to Use MP3 CDs

What is an MP3 CD and how do I know if my equipment is compatible?

 

As of the end of 2018, we have switched our primary mode of production to MP3 CDs. There are two great benefits associated with MP3 CDs.

 

  1. MP3 CDs contain compressed audio files, which means they hold more audio than standard CDs. (Whereas our standard 12-lecture programs were divided across 4 discs, the MP3 CDs make it possible to burn all 12 tracks to one disc.)
  2. Fewer discs means slimmer packaging, which in turn means lower shipping costs and more efficient use of shelf space. And for our customers, this also means fewer discs to handle—a big plus, especially if you’re one of the many who enjoy listening to our audio programs in your car.

However, MP3 CDs require special drives to play correctly.

 

The CD/DVD drive on your computer is compatible with MP3 CDs, as are the CD players in most cars manufactured since 2006.

What are my options for playing an MP3 CD?

  • First, try to play the MP3 CD in your existing equipment. Look for the logo (below) to see if the MP3 CD will be compatible.

 

  • If you have a computer, you can import the MP3 CD into your iTunes or Windows Media Player library (or similar). From there, you can play the audio files or load them onto your iPod or portable MP3 player. If you prefer physical discs, you can always burn your own from the MP3 audio files you just imported.
  • Purchase a newer CD player that will be compatible with MP3 CDs.

If you are still unable to listen to the MP3 CD, we will send you a traditional audio CD. This option is only available upon special request. To put in a request, or to resolve any other questions, please contact us by emailing info@learn25.com, or by calling 1-800-955-3904.

Our History

Our story began in 2006 with a bold dream and a rented studio. Michael Bloom, a distance learning entrepreneur, and Dan Mollura, an investment banker-turned-physician, saw technology as the key to democratized learning. If media could syndicate news, entertainment, and sports, why not teaching? We wanted to channel the timeless power of lecture-based learning into cutting-edge media.

We wrote our mission statement with five guiding principles, including a spirit of generosity. Great teachers are generous with their time, discoveries, and expertise. They dedicate themselves to their students’ growth, and we wanted to give them a technological platform to reach lifelong learners like you, wherever you might be.
