I've digitized a cassette tape of a meeting using WAV format. I converted it to an MP3 (good quality) file and made a MP3 disk. The disk doesn't work in my car CD player. Can someone tell me how to do this properly?

 

Thanks. Jim B

 

Does you car cd player play mp3 files? Most don't. Just use the wav file to make an audio cd You may have to use more than one depending on the length of the meeting.

Thanks for the reply. The meeting was about 1.5 hrs. long. It seems the length of the recording is the determining factor rather than the file size. Do I have to split the clip and record the two halves seperately, or is there an application that will automatically put the file on two disks?

 

Off topic topic. Does this forum have a spell checker?

I followed Sknis' advice. Split the file at the 45 min point and burned 2 CD-R disks and both played on all players. I had some mistakes on disk #2. I edited the clip then recorded it on a CD-RW disk just in case it still wasn't right. Now for the strange part. I have 2 GM and 1 ford vehicle in my driveway. The CD-RW disks plays fine in the Ford but not in the GM's. It also doesn't play on the CD player (it doesn't even recognize it) in the entertainment center. All the disks have the same file structure on them. Any explaination for this? I will burn disk #2 on a CD-R and expect it to play fine.

 

Thanks for all the help

Jim

You used a CD RW disc. A lot of players never were designed to play RW disc's use a CD-R.

 

Got it?

Why I bite my tongue when folks here recommend getting some RW's for testing video! :rolleyes:

I've never had a problem reading RW's on my computer. They are what I use while editing. When I'm finally done testing, I burn to -R's so that other players can read them.

That's because every CD and DVD Burner I've ever met included RW in its specs...

 

To me RW's have slow write speeds, need erasing, have reading and writing issues.

 

When I can buy good R media at 15 to 30 cents each I choose not to use RW's.

They still don't make RW-DL discs, so double layer experimenting has to be write-once.

 

You also find that recent models of the Roxio software have great problems closing some DVDRW discs, and in those cases you need to use write-once discs rather than RW for a proper result.

 

The reason some players don't recognize RWs is because the signal level from a pressed disc is relatively huge; the level from a write-once disc is relatively small; and the signal from an RW disc is relatively microscopic. Additional circuitry is needed to handle the tiny signal, and pennies are saved by not including that circuitry.

Interesting that they do make BD DL in RE (50 GB) but the DVD DL RW's never got much beyond the announcement stage :lol:

 

Yes that is the reason why they don't work in a few Players... But the vast majority of us that use them have no issues ;)

I have a ford truck and im using Roxio Creator Starter 12 as well and had a problem with the disk not playing in my truck.

I didnt convert from a casset or anything but I did convert from an mp4 to mp3 then burned the disk and nothing played in the trucks cd player.

What I found was after I click the music cd icon and you get to the add your music window, in the top right hand corner you should see options. In options there is a tab called advanced. By default My Roxio had "Disable system autorun" disabled. I unchecked it and all my CD's play in my truck now. Apparently my vehicles players wants to autostart and maybe this is the issue your are having?

Hope this helps.
