what you should do before burning

, it makes sense that before the action, check whether the target device, so the car radio or the CD player can play not yet MP3s directly. Because that would accommodate much more audio on a disc.

The MP3 support can be expressed by a simple label of “MP3” on the front, for example, should be but definitely in the manual.

As the ultimate test you try just it: burn a few MP3 files on a data CD and test it just in the device. Again, you can do the burn with Windows Media Player. Set as target type “Data CD”.

For this test, the audio files must not necessarily be present in the library of Windows Media Player. You can create a data CD on normal way and select the desired MP3 files from any source.
