Yes, the application is able to compress .mp3 files, but it has been discontinued by its developer and it is no longer supported. You can use an utility from Software Informer database, or you can try Microsoft Expression Encoder which replaced Windows Media Encoder. For the burning process, I suggest you to use Free Audio CD Burner, Free CD DVD Burner or Audio CD Burner. All of them are free of charge, easy to use and have a lot of useful features.

I use iDealshare VideoGo to compress MP3 files to smaller file size.

Method 1: Change audio bitrate

Click "Setting..." button to open "Advanced Settings" window;
In the "Advanced Settings" window -> "Advanced" tab -> "Audio Bitrate" box;
Double click "192K" box on the right side of "Bitrate" to select smaller bitrate that you want from the drop-down list. Or enter your desired bitrate;
Click "Apply to All" and OK to finish the setting.

Tips:

This method also suits to compress audio files in both second and third category;
This method applies to compress audio with or without changing the original audio format;

Method 2: Adjust audio sample rate

Click "Setting..." button to open "Advanced Settings" window;
In the "Advanced Settings" window -> "Advanced" tab > "Audio Sample Rate" box;
Double click "48000" box on the right side of "Sample Rate" to select smaller sample rate that you want from the drop-down list. Or enter your desired sample rate;
Click "Apply to All" and OK to finish the setting.
