Default Writing a CD box set to DVD-V for the car, possible?

My girlfriend purchased an auto with a DVD-V player. It only plays audio while traveling, which is fine and as it should be. I have a bunch of CD boxsets and was going to write each disc I wanted to carry on a CD-R for use in the auto. If it is possible to write say all of a 4-disc set to a single DVD-R in DVD-V format at CD quality, not MP3, I would prefer that to 4 CD-Rs. I just wrote this box set to a DVD-R in 128 MP3 quality but even for the auto I would like CD quality.



I am sure not going to carry that stupid hat box, it was too expensive for that, in the car and writing to 4 CD-Rs is OK but if I can get something I can play at 48kHz/16-Bit PCM on a single DVD-R, that would be really cool. If I can write it as is, 44.1kHz/16-Bit and the player will read it that is great as well. I have a number of great box sets I would like to do this with. Maybe a 12-CD set would fit on a single DL DVD-R? I don't know what kind of data would result, obviously a single CD is no more than 700MB of data but I don't know if writing to DVD-R would only require that amount of data.

If someone knows how to go about this, please point me in the right direction, what software to use and whether or not to convert the file to something different.

If someone likes obscure early 60's pop/rock, that Rhino Girl Group set is probably going to be a fav.

Chris, I have a DVD-A player in my car. A friend has made me several DVDs from CD's -- so they are not 5.1 Surround. He said he uses a program called InfraRecorder.

I have not done this myself in years by I just used a Roxio program-- I don't recall the details

Thanks, I will read about InfraRecorder. The player we have is not DVD-A, only DVD-V but I do carry DVD-As in the car, it does a nice job with Dolby Digital surround from the DVD-V section of the DVD-A. I have no way to copy those so the few times I carry them, I am just going to be very careful.

using Roxio 8 suite - you can create DVD audio discs simply by dragging and dropping the cd files. It is a lossless process so you should retain the audio qualities of the CD. You can also add ID tags, edit (trim & fade), etc. What it won't do is bypass any CSS encryption.

Thanks guys. I still haven't gotten it figured out. I did download InfraRecorder and installed it but didn't figure out how to do what I want. Roxio sounds like the solution I need. For now, I am just putting a CD in one drive and blank CD-R in the other drive and copy, even I can figure that one out. For now, I will just carry a lot of CD-Rs in the car. I did figure out how to put a box set as MP3 on a single CD for whatever that is worth, not much to me.
