A quick question about MP3 files on CD.

Hi everyone

Can anyone help here? When you create a piece of music and then write it onto a CD, does the CD automatically create the date the CD was written?

If it's an audio CD you can play in a CD player, then no.

If it's audio files you're writing on CD that can be read as a CD-ROM with a computer, then the files will contain the usual date modified metadata just as on any computer filesystem.

...but don't write MP3 files to an audio CD. When you're creating an audio CD use wav files. MP3 is a lossy format, but CD audio is a 16-bit 44.1kHz lossless format.

I could tell you stories about MP3 files written to CD, ripped to MP3, written to CD... then somebody asks me why their CD sounds so bad...
