After no more CD's...what then?
February 11, 2019 1:24pm CST
CD's (compact discs) are becoming a thing of the past. Most new vehicles don't even have CD players anymore. I want to record another album, but what will it be on? I know professional musicians have their music on I tunes,Spotify, and uploaded to YouTube, but since I don't plan on selling anything, what will take the place of a CD? I have a couple of CD's of my music and I just want another one to give to my family and friends. And let's face it, most people my age are not going to do much with downloading music. So, to all our music myLotters, can you give me some advice? I don't mind paying to have some songs professionally recorded, but will I just be wasting my money? Thanks, guys!

you can record and save it to a memory stick or a flash drive, here is just an idea how to do it and I'm sure there's somebody there who knows and can assist you in actual practice, these external storages are getting cheap, much more convenient and less bulky

As one of those dinosaurs who still make my own CD's from downloaded music playlists I guess I'll have to adapt. The memory sticks seem to be the next way to go. My car currently has a CD player so I'm still good till I trade it for a newer vehicle.

This is just a thought and hopefully It hasn't already been suggested but you could always put them on a smartphone if you have one? Also you could transfer the CD to a computer. Here is a couple of links: https://www.technipages.com/itunes-transfer-songs-from-cd-to-ipod https://www.dummies.com/computers/operating-systems/windows-10/how-to-rip-cds-in-windows-10/

Going all to computer stuff now. I think the CS will be around long after they stop making them ( JJ has vinyl!) so make your CD`s and give them to those who you want to have them. Do not underestimate the old folks like me learning the new memory sticks
