Burning WAV Files Onto CD

Question

I have made a series of audio files (recordings of my own voice) with my Olympus microrecorder that I would like to burn onto CDs with my Roxio software. The microrecorder files are in WAV format and have been transferred to my hard drive. I tried burning some of them onto a CD yesterday, but it didn't turn out right. The first time, I tried burning them as data files, and I didn't get any error messages from Roxio, but I didn't get any sound when I tried to play the CD. The next time, I tried transferring the files in the music format, but I got some sort of error message from Roxio about the audio files not being transferrable. Does anyone have any ideas about what I might be doing wrong?

 

Also, is there any way to index or somehow mark the files or subcategories within the files so I can get to them easily? For example, the files I have recorded are foreign language vocabulary, and each file focuses on a category of words, like food, clothes, etc., and each of those categories are divided into subcategories. It is those subcategories I would like to index somehow so I can fast forward to them more easily, if possible. I am assuming that each file I would burn onto a CD would be its own track.

Thanks. My original thought was to try and convert the WAV file to something else, but I didn't know what file type would be best or if it would be possible to do in Roxio. Do you have a link for instructions on converting files from WAV to MP3?

 

Re-read the link I gave you.

This shouldn't be a problem, I do something similar often. Create a .wav file and burn it to a CD via the CD Project. Works great.

 

BUT>> I do have a problem playing them on a Ford Focus CD/MP3 player. I can burn the CD using competitors software and play them on the Ford no problem. I can play the CD's on any other player. Just not the Ford. Go figure. :)

So, what you are saying is dont by a Ford.

You might try playing the files on another make of auto besides a FORD FOCUS and see if they play (i.e. Chevy, Buick, Toyoto, M.B., Caddy, Nisson, even a Dodge). :)

 

 

 

Seriously, some car audio players will only play CDA audio files. Some will play both CDA and MP3 and still others will only play MP3's. I would assume that if you have a CD player in your Ford Focus, it should at least play CDA audio files, and I doubt seriously that it will play MP3 audio.
