Thanks for the links Bob, I picked up Audacity 1.2.3. It seems to be doing what I want but I will bookmark the link for future use.

I like Audacity myself, but just for doing what you are are doing I use "Hard Disk OGG" to record.It has an intuitive interface. To get it to work properly you have to check the Recording balance box in the Volume Control if it's not checked or black out.
If you add more than one recording software app to your arsenal you'll find that Audacity will not release control of the Line-In setting.If you use Hard Disk Ogg or others you will have to change the Line-In setting in Audacity to another setting.

For spitting the large wave file I use CD Wave.

For editing the waves I use DC Art-Millenium 4.83.

For Burning waves or.cda files I only use Feurio.

I don't know what the best perhaps free all round package is to perform all these steps

Maybe someone knows about the best RIP/Record Edit Burn and mange music files all in one package.

Say that three times fast!

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?
