A Mp3 DVD would be able to contain approx 1000 tracks, compared to a Mp3 CD which can only hold approx 120 tracks!!!

You can't use an mp3 DVD - only CDs containing mp3 tracks will play. I was trying to do the same thing, then I read the manual which clearly states CD mp3 discs only.

Yeah...I have seen that too, but the ML plays DVD's & also accepts Mp3 & WMA, so surely there must be a way to burn Mp3's to a DVD.......NO!

I think it can read it if you write the audio to the DVD (like a proper CD) but the system cannot read data from an DVD so a load of MP3 files on a DVD will not work whatever software you use.

Well it seems everything 'renegade' says about this program is spot on. I've only tried the demo which does have limitations - only the first five tracks of the first five albums are 'burnt' to disc. I did this and put it in the ML DVD system and it plays perfectly.

I'll be investing my $39.95 (£26) in this little beauty of a program and finally enjoy mp3 DVDs in my Lexus. Thanks to 'renegade' for the tip.

Let us know if it works with more than a handful of tracks :) Hopefully it will, but i always thought there was a restriction to the number of tracks the system would recognise. Also, look around for the software, you might get it cheaper or possibly free :o

I can't get it to work, what type of blank DVD media did you use?

Thanks much,

Matt

I've used many different discs either dvd-r or dvd-rw, cheapo Bulkpaq, Aldi's own brand and Imation to name but a few, all work perfectly.

The program itself is not the easiest to use - I would have liked a 'drag and drop' function, but overall it's well worth the money, 25-30 mp3 albums on one dvd is the solution to those of us who don't have the usb port. If you're interested in getting this program, google 'audio dvd creator', a link on the right hand side of the results will give a discount with RegNow.com - currently at 10%.

By a very roundabout way using the same software:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/virtualbox/downloads/index.html

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

(This is the normal site but not seeing Mac specifically)

By reading the posts above, any DVD authoring software that has a lot of options should be able to do it.

Set many individual "Chapters", each of which plays an MP3. (Will be MP4 once authored)

Each "Title" is a different Album.

Just this program automates it for you.

Glad you managed to get your DVD MP3 disc working in the Lexus. 

I used to have a dvd player in an old car and I would download the music videos off YouTube and covert then to avi files, put all the latest on a DVD and play it in the car for passengers to watch while driving, was pretty cool. 

So my question is, does anyone know how to heck the lexus Mark Levinson system so it plays DVD while the cars in motion? 

 

Seems like a great feature of the car I never use due to this reason :(

Apart from the obvious safety implications, if the Police catch you watching DVD's whilst the vehicle is in motion, you'll get done for dangerous driving!

I take your point bavianni and understand the potential ramifications of my actions but I if had a pound every time someone replied stating the obvious I would be rich. 

I have my reasons and it's not for my viewing pleasure it's for my son, I don't care if its illegal. 

Thank you for your reply I appreciate the input and advice but all the same any answer more specific to to my question would be appreciated.

I know that if you are that way inclined you can go into asda ( other retailers are available!) and buy a 12" Chefs Knife and use it for the wrong reasons!  So here is a guide to enable the DVD to show visuals while the Handbrake is off and the vehicle is moving.

I don't reccomended doing it but I know people drive at more than 30 MPH in built up areas and that is illegal also! Here it  is and It is a lengthy thread and I would actually read all of it to cover any snags that may have occurred.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
