Burn Multiple Tracks To Cd-r

Question

Hello Everyone!

I have just joined and I hope that I have found the correct place to post this question. Forgive me if I have not.

I have ripped many CDs to my HD using Windows Media Player 11.

I burnt two of the ripped CDs by the same artist, onto a CD-R.

However, when I tried to burn two of the rippped CDs from the HD to a CD-R, by two different artists, I was unable to do so.

The required tracks were ripped in Windows Media Audio format and were 65.6MB and 69.6MB respectively. The CD-R is 700MB.

I tried with WMP 11, Nero, and Real Player. Real Player informed me that, after the first two tracks of the second CD, there was not enough room!

If anyone can shed a little light on this problem and instruct me how to copy more than one of my ripped CDs to a blank CD-R I will be most grateful!

When I tried to copy directly from "My Music", WMP 11 automatically comes up and will not burn both.

I have Windows XP Prof:+ SP3 and, if it is of any importance, an ADSL connection.

 

Thank you in advance for any input,

 

Regards,

 

Colinito

Would like to know what software you actually have??? Open your software and click on Help – About and tell us the Version numbers

 

File size is a totally useless measure. Audio CD's and Video are measured in TIME. What is the length of your tracks?

 

CD's come in a few sizes but the most common today is 700mb/80 minutes.

If you ripped 2 cd's to your hard drive what makes you believe you'll then be able to fit them back onto 1?

 

If you made an Audio cd I doubt that they will ever both fit.

If you made an MP3/WMA disc then I'd expect them to both fit with room to spare.

 

You ripped to your HD in WMA but when you make an Audio cd they are converted back to the original PCM format.When this happens you lose all the space savings you gained by ripping to WMA in the first place.

Hello Jim,

Thanks for your reply, The answer by Tbrewst seems to explain the problem when he states - "You ripped to your HD in WMA but when you make an Audio cd they are converted back to the original PCM format.When this happens you lose all the space savings you gained by ripping to WMA in the first place."

So it sems that I won't be able to do it anyway! The time is way over 80 minutes.

Thanks anyway

Digital Guru,

Your explanation has shown me that I can't do it anyway! many thanks for that. I might try to make an MP3 disc, but probably won't be able to play it on my CD players - but I shall try!

That is it, then, I shall leave it at that. Thanks to everyone for their input - I am not more clever, but wiser thanks to this.
