Yes there is a loss of qualityIn short form : Yes it does go down.

MP3 is a form of "lossy" encoding. When you 'rip' a song from a CD to mp3, you are actually encoding a .wav file to .mp3 file. Higher the mp3 bitrate, lower the loss of quality but there is a loss. This is why the mp3 tracks occupy much less space than the wav audio tracks.

When you are converting back from MP3 to CD (to a .wav file basically), your source is the lossy mp3 track, which you can not restore back to the original. Converting to a .wav file will not lose anything from the quality of mp3 recording but mp3 was lossy to start with.

No. Digital recordings are like copying any other digital data. If you do not loose data you do not loose sound quality.

No. Itunes has it's own format that is not compatible. You may be able to burn the songs to a disc, then put them back into the computer from the disc... that may change the format. There are also converters you can download that will convert the Itunes mp4 format to an mp3 format.

Because when the light is matched, it has a chemical reaction that makes it unable to change back into it's original format.

As you all know, a QuickTime movie's format is always MOV or MPG. So if you want to burn a AuickTime movie to DVD, what you need is just a DVD burner software which supports both MOV and MPG. Here is a pretty nice DVD burner which works well for me, it can convert and burn MOV, MPG, and many other format movies to DVD with high speed and great output quality.

24x is ok. not too slow and not too fast. this gives the most perfect burn in terms of balancing speed versus quality. however, if you want the best quality burn, burn using the slowest speed possible.

Do you mean that what movie format you should use? It doesn't matter what movie format you use to burn DVD. The problem lies in the DVD burner you use to burn DVD. If your DVD burner supports many popular video formats like avi, mpg, mpeg, mp4, mov, wmv and so on, you could burn movies of those formats to DVD freely. I personally use Wondershare Video to DVD Burner to burn my DVD, and it works well for me.

If a dog gets a burn, the hair may or may not grow back depending on the severity of the burn.

Mine peaks at 22x, but in all fairness, fastest is not always the best. In order to get the highest-quality, I choose a 16x burning speed. Currently standard format DVD-/+Rs can only burn at 18x

Yes It Does Depending On How Bad The Burn Is.

As I know, it doesn't matter what the video format is when you burn a video to DVD-rw or DVD+rw. What's important is that whether your DVD burner supports the video format. For example, I use wondershare to burn my DVDs, it supports AVI, MPG, MPEG, WMV, MOV, DAT and many other video formats. So I could burn downloaded movies, videos, even bit torrent and YouTube movie to DVD.

No! You must burn it into CD then put the CD into your PS2.

Carbon Dioxide gas is not flammable at all, it will not burn at all! The gas which does burn with a pop sound is hydrogen gas.

The longer the length the less the sound, and they son't burn out as quickly...

Actually a QuickTime movie's format is always MOV or MPG, so you just need a DVD burner which supports these two video formats to burn the movie to DVD.

wma is the standard. If you burn mp3's they are automatically converted to wma format. WMA is a format licensed and controlled by Microsoft. CDA is the standard CD Audio format used on standard store purchased Audio CDs.

Yes. When you burn hydrogen the product is water. If you pass an electric current through that water you can split it back into hydrogen and oxygen.

No, I don't think so. When I burn my movies or videos to DVD, I think the file is recorded and converted to another format in the DVD disc I inserted.
