Hello all.

I recently ripped the audio portion from three DVD concerts into either .wav or .MP3 format and put them on to a MD with no problem. But now I want to convert them to an audio cd so I can listen to them either in my car or home stereo cd player. Neither player supports .MP3s to let you know

The size of the files are not an issue since they are about 100MB but it's the length of the concert. All three are about 110mins long and when I try using EZ Cd creator it gives me a warning stating the content will not fit on the current media (80min Cd-R).

Is there any solution to this?

Thanx

the reason your files wont fit on a CD-R is because the mp3's are being converted to wav files and then being burned onto the disc. Wav files are a lot bigger than mp3, and in this case the wav file is too big to fit onto a CD-R. I would recommend using a program called musicutter to cut the mp3 into separate tracks, and then burn them onto 2 or more CD-R's.

Yes I know that .wav files are much larger than .MP3 files. But like I said that's not the issue since the files, which will be or are converted to .MP3, are only 100MB each max in size. It's the length, 110mins.

Also, I don't want to put them on to 2 CD-Rs for the sake of portability.

Hi TCC,

The problem is that CD audio is a constant bit rate, and what you see is what you get
That is, a 74 minute CD-R can fit 74 minutes, and a 80 minute CD-R can fit 80 minutes, etc. No more, no less. There's no compresion there at all.
