When you burn a CD in Media Player, files on the CD are always in CDA
format. Same as a commercial CD you buy at a store. That's the standard and
that's why you're limited to 80 minutes.
If you want to make an MP3 disk, you leave Media Player out of the picture
and just drag or burn the files over to the CD in Explorer. You can get
about 12 hours of music on a CD that way. But it will only play in stereos
that support the MP3 format.
