Is there any way to edit music or wma files(cut parts out to put in other files)?

The issue could be WMA. That's a proprietary Microsoft format so you may find limited tools. Here's a few names of tools that might help. I offer no support for such but know how useful such are. Type the words I supply in all capitals into google.com

FREECORDER (can convert WMA to other audio format).
AUDACITY (editor)

I have edited 2 songs in Audacity and exported them using MP3. I then burned the songs to a Maxell disc. I can here the songs play on the computer from the disc but it won't play on anything else. I also have it saved as media type "audio" can someone tell me what my problem could be. C:\Documents and Settings\Mary\My Documents\My Music\our secret song MOM2.mp3

and exported them as mp3's, you have to burn them to an AUDIO CD. Audio CD's play in everything, data CD's will only play in mp3 players and computers.


Hope this helps.

You could use dbpower amp converter to convert the wma to mp3 then use Audacity. They both are free, virus free, and easy to use.

There is a music editor called "Goldwave" that will let you cut out parts and copy in other parts. It will also convert music files to different formats.

Which program you select will probably depend a bit on your soundcard. It sit MIDI capable, is the big question! I Use Acid Pro 4.0 and Soundforge 6.0 as my two main editing programs but there are plety of others out there. You can get your FREE download of Acid at http://www.acidplanet.com

Editing Sound or Audio recordings../

Is done in the Sound Editor or the WAVE Editor..
..
CREATIVE has a very nice WAVE Editor..
also ROXIO has a Sound Editor Program..
..
you more or less use the DRAG-technique to DELETE a portion of the audio file..Saving the portion you want(in .wav)or converting to some other format..
..
I will also use the Microsoft Movie Maker to CUT..a section..and then HIGHLIGHT that useing the VOLUME-control..
for very bad audio portions..needing adjustments that are very much out of balance..
I'll place a DUMMY-JPG in the PANE to facilitate this operation..
This way I repair a real bad recording with vitually no sound level compared to other sections..
The Microsoft Movie Maker 2 allows for a flawless connection between the repair sections(with no added work)..just re-record the project.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
