How to create an audio disc that will play in a cd player?


skipstocks

Question

Greetings all -

I use an Olympic voice recorder to capture voice clips, and create .wav files from those. I have been using Roxio 6 to create an audio CD from the .wav file, then play it in a standard CD player (Sony Walkman).

 

Recently upgraded to Roxio 8. Now the CDs won't play in the Sony.

 

I noticed on the CDs I used to create with Roxio 6, the file extension was ".cda" - same as any other audio cd. However, now w/Roxio 8, the file extension is ".wav".

 

How do I created CDs that I can listen to in a standard CD player?

 

Best,

S2

If the extensions files on the CD are ".wav" then you created a data disc and not an audio disc. Did you select "Audio CD" as your project type?

Thanks for the response...

 

To answer your question, nope...I thought about that. I burned a second CD, making sure to select "Multimedia Disc".

 

I don't seem to see the option to select Audio CD. Under "Projects" I have:

- Data Disc

- Multimedia Disc

- Bootable Disc

 

In "File, Project Settings" the "Type" field reflects "Multimedia Disc Project" and there is no option to change that value. The "File System" and "Bridge" selections (UDF102 and Joliet Bridg, respectively) are equally unavailable to change.

 

Where would I select "Audio CD" as the project type in EMC8? I have searched Help, KnowledgeBase, and the forums for this option, any help is much appreciated!

You need to use Music Disc Creator, not Creator Classic. Roxio pulled the Audio CD out of Creator Classic. :)

Nice...how thoughtful of them. There's two hours of my life I won't get back. Wonder if I can invoice them for that? :)

 

Found the right program, it's amazing how much difference that makes!

 

Thanks GPB!

You are welcome, but I would bet that that wasn't the only 2 hours of your life that you have wasted. :huh:
