Exporting Tracks - Related Issues




I am coming from Roxio version 6 (very user friendly) and it's .rxs format, so my mentality is still outdated several versions. I use these programs solely for converting stacks of LP's and tapes from analog to digital formats in .wma format and store the music in an external Hard Drive (400GB). I have about 19,000 songs in the HD and have about 6 to 7 thou. more to go. Then, some of these songs I put into my Zune. I Do not need any other Bells and Whistles.


Over more than 30 years of traveling overseas for work, I collected stacks and stacks of LP's and Tapes. Several years ago I decided to transfer them to digital format, before my grandkids start using the LP's as "Frisbees." That's how I started with Roxio 6, about 5 or 6 years ago, but now it seems that I have arrived a the end of the line with this version.


Now I have installed RNML ver. 10 (not the Premier version) and I have some issues with it and perhaps you guys out in the Community, who are more experienced than I can help me.


1.) RNML10 can convert directly into .wma format, so no need to do an extra conversion step like in ver.6 from .rxs to .wma. That's good.

2.) I learned that if I try to record directly in .wma format and directly to the (external) HD, which is no C... the program does not record. I have to record first as .wav format and to the C...docs..my music/recorded traks drive. Is this correct?

3.) The separation of tracks between songs I find it cumbersome, not as easy as in ver.6. Am I doing something wrong, or not following the proper procedure?

4) When I record an LP or a tape of, let's say, twelve songs and go thru de process of inserting information (title, artist, album, etc.) and go to "Export tracks" and give the correct format (.wma) and HD (not C..), it does not take it. It still goes into "C/...my music/recorded tracks" as one song of about 30 some minutes, not twelve songs. What am I doing wrong.


Sorry if I packed a lot of requests into few paragraphs. Will gladly expand if needed


thanks in advance for your patience

As for your # 2:




I've never recorded to the external drive. For me I always record to the PC's primary C drive, make my edit changes, & just let C drive keep filling up until there's only about 15 - 20 % free space left on the drive. Then at that time, I move everything over to the external drive, & delete the original on the C drive, so that again, I have oodles of free space to play with.




As for your # 3:




I loved version 6! It was so user friendly!! However track separators work fine in 10 too. After recording an LP or cassette, I usually end the session right there, because the master copy is now on your hard drive, & you can come back to it whenever you want. When I have time to come back to it, I use Audio Central, then open that file. After you've played around with this for awile (again, much more complicated than 6!!), you'll eventually get comfortable with it. To add track separators, you'll eventually discover the track separator button about 3/4 the way up the screen, on the left-ish side of the screen.




As for your # 4:




See my answer above for your # 2. I usually just save the tracks onto the C drive, & when I am running out of disk drive space, I just move everything over, & then delete the originals on the C drive. I don't know why you can't record straight to the external drive, maybe it's a limitation of 10. I just know what works for me. Good Luck!!






My main issue with Roxio 10, was that I couldn't get it to run right on my PC. Turns out there was a major conflict between my anti-virus software (Norton 360) & Roxio 10. Only after I sent numerous e-mails & phone calls between these 2 software companies, did they get together & figure out a way for these 2 programs to co-exist peacefully.


Thank You.

- You can go to Advanced Options and choose desired location to save the file as well as have ability to choose any other file format.

- You can play around with Options under Track Detection.

- Or once the track is recorded, you can use "Sound Editor" to manually define the tracks and save them as deem fit.
