I can only comment on the cd-equiped type-r gt model (07 facelift at that) but there is standard support for wma and mp3 on cdr.

I've put 99 mp3 tracks on a cdr and it works fine (reason for 99 is that the display on mine supports two digits for track number)

Perhaps someone with satnav could confirm whether there is dvd-r support (I seem to remember the sat nav version uses DVD's - hence the lack of 3rd party speed camera database support you'd expect on HDD flash memory style GPS systems.....)

If you have the 8CD changer, that's 800-ish tracks

Nope it won't play DVD-Rs of any description I'm afraid. So you're stuck with CD-R(W) for MP3s and WMAs

The DVD player in the EX is only for the sat nav disc.
It will not play music through the in-car stereo.

You should get plenty of tracks on a CD.

Assuming you are using MP3 s and you encode them at a max of 192kbs (more than adequate for in car use) you should get closer to 200 on 700mb disk. WMAs tend to be a bit smaller so maybe that is the way to go

too many tracks !!

Wouldn't want a DVD full of MP3's too many tracks to navigate through. Just stick to CD's.

At the moment I 'm not doing albums I just put my favorite tracks onto disk and let them go.

Hi, i created folders for the music - wouldnt that overcome the 99 tracks problem?
e.g. folder for Killers music, Folder for U2 music etc.

You can definately have more than 99 tracks. I have a CDRW in mine with about 160 tracks on it. I just have it set up with folders like A, B, C etc.
