Question Trouble burning music files


My wife has recorded some children's stories specifically for blind and vision impaired kids which she wants to burn to cd. However, we converted the wav files to mp3's and burned them to disc and they are back to being wav files again ... I don't understand. The wav files show that they "locked"(little lock on the file icon)the question is ... will this make a difference? She still wants to burn them onto the cd's as mp3's, but after each attempt and with different burning software (Nero, K3B and Brassero they always appear on the disc as wav files, and the file sizes prove this is correct.
Question; where am I going wrong?
Please help as this project is important, thanks.

1. In a terminal go to the folder where you have saved the MP3 files you want to burn. Post the output of the command
Code:
ls -l
2. Describe the procedure you used to burn the files to a CD using K3b.

Okay, well, nothing really wrong here. You turned them into MP3's, but that's not the way they're supposed to land on an audio disk, your burner converted them to a format an audio CD is suppoded to have.
If you want to burn them as MP3's however, you'll need to start a DATA disk, not an audio disk...that way, the data remains as is...
The padlocks are obvious, once on a disk, they're immutable...hence read-only...

Be followin' this threat, a noble cause from your wife, the world needs more of them...but they're is short supply, I know

The "ls -l" code tells me that they are mp3's.
In K3b I burn them following the create a cd procedure, opening the folder that contains the files and then dragging them into the bottom window ... and then burn.

I don't really understand your first answer. Does the output for one of the mp3 files look like this? (with a different filename of course)
Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 jdkaye jdkaye   4917 apr 20 21:12 en_uk_tfd_chain.mp3
In the K3b main page have you clicked on the item: New Data Project?

If your CD player supports mp3 playback then you need to create a Data CD to play mp3 files on the player. Otherwise, you need to create an audio CD project in which the mp3s will be converted to wav or cda.

Thanks to everyone who helped solve the problem of burning mp3's as mp3's. I burned the cd using K3b ...
Data CD and it worked. However, each track is numbered "Track 1 to Track 13" on the disc but on playback it automatically jumps from Track 1 to Track 10, 11, 12 and 13.
Question; Is there a way to stop this happening?

1. Please mark this thread as "Solved" (use the Thread Tools menu above your first post).
2. Try numbering your tracks 01, 02 ..., 09, 10, 11, ... that should solve your problem.
