EMC 7.5 Burning Issue

Question

Question: I have copied a cassette tape using Audio Capture. I captured it in .wav format. The total file size was a little over 800 MB.

 

I then ran the file through Windows Sound Recorder and changed the file to PCM format 24,000kHz, 16 bit stereo. I then saved this file to my desktop and it was about 400MB now. That is a size that will fit my CD disc.

 

The problem is that when I go to burn the audio file on the disc using Creator Classic, it changes the size back to a little over 800 MB.

 

Anyone know how I can shrink this 800MB file to less than 650 and burn an audio disc?

How long, in time, is the file? If you are making an audio CD out of it, you can get 80 minutes of music on the CD.

Time wise, it is about 85 minutes long and I have trimmed it to bare bones. I have since found out that no matter size you can downsize it Example: 24,000Khz 16 bit stereo, the burner will sill burn it at the 44,100 kHz. SOOOOOOOOO, it looks like I'm screwed unless someone knows of a "trick"

Get the length, under 80 minutes, or you aren't going to burn it safely, as an audio CD, with Roxio.

If you want it as an Audio CD that is playable on an Audio CD player (as opposed to an .mp3 disc or simply a data disc of some other format), it exceeds the maximum length. The Red Book standards are

 

Maximum playing time is 79.8 minutes [4]

Minimum duration for a track is 4 seconds (including 2-second pause)

Maximum number of tracks is 99

Maximum number of index points (subdivisions of a track) is 99 with no maximum time limit

International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) should be included
