72 mins is when u burn it in audio format, so you can listen to it on ur cd player, but cd players now days have MP3 reading format or w/e so they can read em when you burn em straight to a disk so you can have 100+ songs on a cd and still play em on ur cd player...

Its because the MP3 IS a compressed Version of an

Audio File. WAV is the uncompressed which is 30-50MB

per song. When u burn a MP3 to a MUSIC CD. It

converts it back to the WAV format thus taking more

space :
