    Default CDJ 1000s

    I have a gig coming up and i will be using a pair or 1000s for the first time. What are 1000s like at reading mp3 cds with about 30 songs on each. I have a pair of 200s and they are very slow at loading each song and sometimes the cd will jitter or just stop.

    The reading speed isn't great. Note that only the MK2 and MK3 read MP3's... if they have the 1000-MK1, you are outta luck.

    I'd recommend _not_ using mp3 cd's if you can avoid it. The loading speed on my mk3's is OK, but I have had occasions where they have spit an error code and refused to play a track - with no obvious reason.

    This has never happened to me when playing redbook audio (and I've played some really dodgy / old CDs) If you're playing "actual" audio, I think it's worth taking the time to burn audio cds.

    I've got 800s, and they had no problem reading mp3 cds, although it's been a while since I used them so they might seem slow to me now that I use a controller

    I honestly wouldn't even risk it. Just burn normal CDs, and write down the tracks.

    Ive got 800's too and they are far faster than 1000s at reading CD's,
    All my audio is burned to audio CD's anyway, only some of my backups are MP3

    like already said don't use mp3's. it'll improve read speed. less error's and F up's. also your tracks are spread over several disks helping out picking and finding tracks easier
