Hello,

I have this problem with just one specific standard song of 3:49 minutes. Any other song can be added to the project window in preparation for the CD burning. Howevet today with this particular song, everytime I try to add it to the project window, it changes its duration by itself to 77:13 minutes! I have tried redoing it many times in different ways but I get the same problem, for instance the CD gets saturated and doesn't get burned.

Any help please?

Thank you
Jose

Jose,

What format is your source song in? It looks to me like you might have it as a file, but what sort of file? WAV, MP3, FLAC . . .etc.
If it is an MP3, was it recorded at a constant bit rate [CBR] or variable bit rate [VBR] ?

Try using an editor or convertor to change your file into a different format, and then using the new file in your project.
WAV is probably best for this effort, since WAV is closest to the format of an audio CD.

Thank you Brendon.

It was recorded as a an MP3 like all the other songs that I have downloaded from my music library. The others songs don't have any problem after being processed exactly in the same way. This is really weirI have not done anything different with this song with respect to the other songs.

Once you move the song to the list of songs that will be recorded into the CD, the song is converted from MP3 to a simple CD music file. This is the way I have been doing it in the past but now I don't know why this is happening.

Thanks again for your help.
Jose

Hi Jose,

I understand your process, but I think that one MP3 file may have some corruption, perhaps in its header. That's why I suggested you try converting it to something else before you use it, hoping the conversion might straighten out the header problem.
