Burning Mp3 Disks


Bsmooth

Question

I have been trying to burn mp3 discs using music disc creator,and its taking forever.Most of the time seems to be used building disc,at the beginning of the burn.I did edit most of the songs in music disc creator to brighten up some of the older recordings.But should it take almost 45 minutes to burn 65 songs?

Please help as I don't think it should take this long.I also checked the settings and its burning in the native format,but also set to keep the songs in order.

If you edited all 65 songs in sound editor, that is what's taking all the time! You do say " Most of the time seems to be used building disc".

 

Check ' Enabling/Checking DMA in Windows Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 9x',

in the bottom of my signature and double check your settings.

I'm not sure about that cd.

I just made a disc with 68 tracks,some of which I edited in SE using Clean and Enhance both.I did use v9 not 10 but I wouldn't expect that much of a dfifference.

The total time from hitting burn to the disc ejecting was just under 3 minutes.

I never got anything about "building the disc" or any other thing in the burn box except the usual.

Something in the process Bsmooth is using must be slowing it down.I'm just not sure it's because of the edited tracks.

Terry,

in V 10 I took Fleetwood Mac, Say You Will, 18 tracks. Clicked edit audio on each track, clean and enhanced all 18 tracks (moved all six sliders to the middle). I clicked the burn button and got a building disc progress box, it took 14 minutes building the disc, then the burn started.

Hmmmm,let me try it in the same way.I'll get back to you.

 

Ok,I tried 2 different things.

First,I took a few mp3 files from my hard drive and put each one of them through Sound Editor,did the enhancements and saved the clip to my desktop and then added them to the new project along with some others.When I burn that project I get no indication of Building Disc and it takes just a couple minutes to burn.

Next,I took the same mp3's,added them to a new project,then 1 at a time right clicked them and hit Edit Audio.I did the same enhancing to them.I hit burn and this time I got the building disc indication.I didn't wait it out and canceled the burn.It would have taken considerably more time to burn.

 

So I guess it comes down to where you do the editing.If you use Sound Editor and save the clips and then use them it doesn't take much time to edit and use them.

If you edit them while in MDC it seems to take a considerably longer time to burn the disc.

Maybe the way to go is to edit the files first then make the disc instead of trying to edit them from within MDC.

Another thought is if they are added from a cd instead of from existing mp3 files then they need to be converted to mp3 format and that could add some time to the whole process.

 

Thx for the help testing this one out cd.
