I need to copy a single track 114 minutes long.

by kelbype / December 4, 2008 9:27 AM PST

Does anybody know how I can copy a single track, which is 114 minutes long on a cd-r. I know there is not a recordable blank cd-r more than 99 minutes. So my real question is, how can I split the wma file in half to record of two separate discs? I use windows xp, and windows media player to burn cd's. I need to use a cd-r so that I can play it in my car. Thank you all, hope you can help.

For years I've used AUDACITY to do this.

But it's WMA so convert it to MP3 first.

The track is a live Peter Green and Kolors concert in Frankfurt on Dec 13, 1984.

How can I change it MP3 format without using windows media player?
And will that allow me to break the track up to fit on two 80 min cd-r's?

Another "something I do with AUDACITY."

I thought I mentioned AUDACITY before. If not I'll mention it again. If I can't directly convert it then I'll capture it again with AUDACITY.

Too much written out there about it's use so I'll stop here.

split a single track

If you have Windows Movie maker, you could import (a copy of) your sound track. From there you can play the audio, mark the place you choose to split it apart, use the slider (either from the leading or trailing edge) to clip that portion of the file out and then save the audio. Then you burn the two "halfs" as you would normally.
