8. Will my karaoke (CD+G) songs work on the Media-Jukebox?
No, the Media-Jukebox is not compatible with CD+G files but if you compress your CD+G files to Divx files then they can be used on the Media-Jukebox.
9. How do I compress a CD+G file to DivX?
There are actually two available methods for compressing CD+G files to DivX. NOTE: It is essential that the CD-ROM drive on your computer is CD+G compatible. If it is not, you will not be able to do anything with CD+G files.
1. Using a CDG ripping program, you can rip each file of of the CD on to your computer's hard drive and then run them through a DivX codec which will compress the files to DivX files.
2. Using a video capture device, you can record the video onto your hard drive and using the DR.DivX program, you can compress the files to DivX files.
NOTE: This method takes longer but it results in a higher quality of DivX file.
