will mp3 made on NTFS file system play in mp3 players for cars???
 
I use ntfs file system in Win2k and was about to purchase a head unit
that plays mp3's for my car so i could use all my mp3 cds, then i saw
that some only play DOS format mp3s. Does this mean I have to copy
them in someone elses 'puter and burn 'em before I can use them??? In
addition , I am probably gonna get one on ebay for under 150 bucks as
I R A PO MAN! I have an Audio Art 140.4XE amp that I will be using
from years ago. I know it works great. Just got to start driving again
after an accident that paralyzed me 7 years ago, an can't wait ta use
my mp3s some one let me know quick please <grin> thanks in advance!!

That means as opposed to Mac CD's. NTFS doesn't apply to any
PC-created CD's, they use CDFS.

Tom's right. I use Windows 2000 with NTFS. I store my MP3s on an
NTFS-formatted hard disk. When I go to burn a CD, though, the burner program
(Nero is what came with my CD/RW drive; Roxio, Adaptec are other names you
might recognize) reads the files from NTFS and puts 'em on CD in IS09660
format. My Pioneer 5500MP reads 'em just fine.

There's a number of options and extensions to the ISO9660 format--Joliet,
Romeo, Mode 1, Mode 2, multisession, etc. Most MP3 players handle all these
options without any problem.
