Question

Hi, Bill. Thank you for being here. I'm a novice. I recorded a old 45 to an audio cd, successfully! Problem is only one song recorded to the cd. I went to record another song, and it wouldn't download to cd. I've asked tech at 2 stores. One said I have to use a file converter to shrink the amount of space each song uses, and that I should be able to get about 20 songs on a cd. My cd is CD-R, 700 MB. I don't know where in the Roxio software booklet that it shows a step to choose a "file" to convert. Thank you

Your problems have nothing to do with the other Topic!

 

There are 2 kinds of CD's...

 

An Audio CD (plays in all Audio CD Players)

 

A Data CD or MP3 CD with music files on it (plays in PC's but only some players)

 

Audio CD's are authored by the program and can contain the number of MINUTES that is listed on the CD - 74 or 80. You can squeeze a few more seconds by lowering your quality but not by much!

 

Audio CD's are based on time!

 

A Data CD or MP3 CD is basically a bunch of files slapped on a CD. You can get a whole bunch on a CD because these are based on File Size vs. disc Capacity (650 - 700)

 

You will find they lack a lot of what an Audio CD can do ;)

 

There is no magic compression, these are your 2 choices.

 

I suggest you get a disc or 2 of CD-RW and try it out both ways to see what works for you.

You need to capture your old 45 singles to the PC, then create your Audio CD from the captured songs on your hard drive, and burn them all at onetime to make a Audio CD.
