Subject: RE: Tech: Recording questions
On your computer, when you use a CD Burning programme, they usually ask if you want to burn a data CD or an Audio CD. If you select Audio, it it would normally convert a .wav or .MP3 file to the usual CD sound format.
I seem to recall that .wav is technically an "envelope" which holds the CD sound format data in a container that microsoft programmes can use. Apple use a different "envelope" but the sound data inside is the same.
