Audio Book Chapter Limitations?


EXPC75

Question

I have a set of vocabulary tapes that I created a separate .wav file for each word. Burning those to a CD limited me to 99 tracks. Is there a limit to the number of chapters if I were to create audio books? I'd like my Ipod to recognize each word as a chapter so it will start at the point I stopped.

 

Thanks in advance

No program in 2009 limits you to 99 tracks.

 

What version are you really running? What program in that version?

 

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I am running Roxio Creator 2009. If you choose "Burn CD's" it will not take any more than 99 tracks.

 

 

Give it a try.

Now let me see - an 80 minute CD with 99 chapters - that's round about 45 SECONDS per chapter.

 

Now I've heard of speed reading, but isn't that verging on the slightly ridiculous?

That's probably a little long (45 seconds) per track. As I said, these tracks are from a vocabulary set of tapes. So, some are only 10 seconds long. The whole CD would only have been about 40 minutes if it would have taken more than 99 tracks.

 

There are 6 tapes (12 sides) and each side has 50 words. I'd like to limit my audio book about 150 chapters (words/tracks).

 

Since I now know that CD's are limited to 99 tracks. My question is still about the number of chapters allowed per audio book and if there is a limitation.

Well, I found the answer to my own question. At least in part. What I found is that there can be at least 200 chapters in an audio book created from files using Creator 2009. I still don't know if there is a numerical limitation for chapters, but I stopped at 200 while creating an audio book for studying vocabulary.

 

Hope this might help someone else along the way.

It is the Format or method that has limitations, not the media.

 

Audio Books have their own format and limitations. If you had opened Create Audio books you would have seen this.

 

Yes an Audio CD has a 99 limit but only an Audio CD! All other methods of burning are limited only by space available.

I was going to say about the same thing, Jim. It sounds like he's writing it as an Audio CD, and he's hitting the 99 track limit. Other than that, I'm unfamiliar with what format Audiobooks may use. And if it is to be playable on a standard CD player, the Audio CD format makes sense.
