I have downloaded some free audio books that are in a mp3 format, they come in diffent parts. I am trying to copy all the chapters to a cd but they are to big, is there any way I can get them on one cd?

                        Thanks John

How big is “too big” here?

A CD holds 80 minutes (max) of audio. I use MP3DirectCut on my audio books. Most of my CD players can play MP3 formatted CDs so I use it to chop the larger MP3 into 6 minute segments so if I lose my place I can find it easier. A CD prepared this way can hold a 10 hour or longer book (depending on bit rate of the MP3). If your player only plays standard audio CDs, I’d chop the big file into 5 minute chunks and burn 16 of them per CD. DirectCut can automatically chop the file and save the cuts as individual pieces.

johncv my experience on music to cd discs: do not excede 74 min. per disc not even with nero overburn,i have only had grief when 74 min is exceded…to help make better copies use setting that reduces lead out/in by 12 mb. good luck! :smiley:

…Macs are really amazing, but I am losing productivity since I switched from a PC, because of all the new hotkeys, mouses, and scrollbars…

That has to be the quote of the month!!! :rolleyes:
