I assume those are wma lossless, or else there would be no point to creating a DVD Audio disc (DVD-A, lossless high res)

Most DVD players can read pictures and mp3/wav files from a Data DVD.

Try burning a DVD Data disc with the files (Wav, flac, wma, etc) you want, albums in folders, and test it in the DVD player

IMGBurn can make Data DVDs

https://www.imgburn.com/

Just drag the wma files onto IMGBUrn gui then burn- set to 4x burn for most reliable/readable in all drives.

I you specifically want DVD-A format (no video) I use Burn, a free program for Macs.

I'd recommend you burn one disc of wma files as a data disc and see if that can be read. The native window SW should do that just fine. I also wouldn't rule out MP3 particularly at a high bit rate like 320 kb. Sure it's not lossless, but to be honest the car is not a great acoustic environment to begin with. I use 256 kb AAC for usb music files in my car and that is just fine. I save lossless and high rez for inside the house.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for your advises. as glangford suggests convert to wma is best bet. but can someone suggests me a better converter that converts nearly lossless. My main idea is to keep orginal CD quality in-tact. many thanks

Hi Rgb,,

yes it should be lossless. correction my current audio format is wav(lossless) rather wma.
Thanks

I admire your desire to have great sound in the car. Still, a couple of questions to think about.

1. Actual DVD-A is a dead and rarely supported format. Have you already tested your car player to make sure it can read the DVD-A format? (I know mine won't.)

2. Do you have a VERY quiet car? In mine, I can't tell the difference between a 320 mpg and FLAC at redbook quality. My car player won't do high res, so I can't talk to that. And I should add, at home the difference is very apparent. I have a decent system in a quiet room; but in the car, not so much. So, have you done such a comparison while driving?

I think there is a Windows command-line program that will burn DVD-A format, but no longer have the link to it.


Good luck!

If CD rips, then they are 44.1Khz. Authoring a DVD requires conversion to 48Khz in general, so the resampling would again defeat the point of lossless.

Just burn a DVD data disc with IMGBurn , putting albums into folders and drag the folders to IMGBurn.

Then try the disc in the car player and see if it recognizes the files/folders and plays wav files.

If it recognizes the disc but does not play wav files, then try flac, alac, aiff lossless formats and as a last resort highest bitrate lossy MP3 or aac.

Don't know if OP actually meant DVD-Audio
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-Audio

or just a DVD data or video disc with audio files.

Again, simplest path is to try lossless file formats burned as files to a data DVD.

Also Google around for the make/model/year of your car and DVD player- we are assuming the DVD player is integrated into your dash.

Never tried this, but here is a web based audio file convertor.

.m4a = .aac generally, and may play in the car player
