Short answer - as data. Burn them with Disk Utility, or with Burn, a free application from here: Download Burn for Mac - Easily burn data, audio, video disks and more. MacUpdate Mac Software Downloads. But Toast will burn .mp3 as data to dvd too.

PS. please post your Mac specs and MacOS version in your profile, it helps us to help you better.

Does your auto CD player play MP3s? My wife's fairly late model Camry does not and I have found few other autos that include a CD player capable of playing MP3s. Of course burning MP3 files as audio will expand them to where you'll use 4 times the space but at least they'll play in your auto CD player.

Regards.

Why did you burn them as WAV?
If the cars player supports MP3, then use Toast to burn an MP3 CD (in the audio tab). I think the issue may be that you used a DVD, CD players won't recognise them at all.
Toast can also burn them as data, as Hugh suggested.

I don't think the issue is with Toast. I make CDs for my car all the time with Toast 10. As mentioned by others unless your car stereo unit can play MP3 files and DVD discs then you should use the Audio CD setting in Toast and also use a CD as opposed to a DVD.

Most stock audio units in cars can't play MP3 discs nor can they play DVDs unless it's a high end special unit or an aftermarket stereo unit. If all of your music files are in WAV format then I believe Toast will convert them to a useable format when you choose the Audio CD feature in Toast.

I've never run across a car stereo that recognized DVD-Rs no matter what was on them.

What I think the OP needs to do is burn an MP3 disc using *CD-Rs* not DVD-Rs, then his car stereo will recognize them (if it recognizes MP3 discs at all, I mean, I'm assuming it does).

Given that MP3 discs (which can be burned directly from iTunes among many other options) on a CD-R can hold at least 10 hours worth of music, this really ought to hold ya!

We receive dozens of teaching CDs and DVDs that are loaded with MP3s. I learned the hard way about trying to play them in an auto stereo. I wound up having to burn our favorites as audio on to a separate CD in order to be able to play them in the car stereo. Pretty sad when you pay $20,000+ for an auto and the stock stereo can't play MP3s. Nowadays, most of the newer autos have the capability to play MP3s which is nice for those long trips.

Regards.

PS. Another hint that might help -- if you want to burn MP3s onto a CD (or DVD) that a car stereo might have a chance of recognising, you'll want to use ISO9000 as your "format" (for Toast, etc).
