MP3 player does not recognize "ogg" files??


Im having some problems with my ogg files. I remember reading a while ago that any mp3 player should be able to read and play any ogg files. I just finished burning my first music cd using gtoaster. Everything went fine untill I went to my car and pop in the cd. I have a car radio that can play mp3s, wav, etc. However it was not able to play the ogg files on the cd. Does anyone know of a solution? any advise will be appreciated

I know its a different format. that wasnt my question. Shouldnt Gtoaster or any other cd burning software for that matter be able to convert ogg files to music format just like Nero, Cd Creator and others convert mp3s to music format? Or is that not possible?

that *was* your question, you said "it was not able to play the ogg files on the cd."....

anyway.. yes gtoaster can record out to real audio cd no problem. converting files between ogg and mp3 really has nothing to do with cd burning though, so you shouldn't really expect a burner program to be able to do that, the KDE interfaces probably do that too though. personally i'd use lame to convert them to mp3 seperately.
