First of all thanks for all the replies so far I had pretty bad flu for a few days so I’ve only just got round to checking in here.
I’m still having a few problems unfortunately. I tried using Burrrn to burn the CD but it wouldn’t let me drop the low quality files into the playlist, i checked that it does work with good quality mp3s so I assume it’s the same problem as with the burning software I was using before.
I’ve installed audacity and I’m trying to use it to make the mp3s burnable but without much success so far. Here’s what I’m doing:
dragging one of the files into audacity, it seems to load ok.
To the left of the waveform for this example track it says: Mono, 24000Hz 32-bit float.
I’m then left clicking the file name above this information and going to the set rate option, changing the rate to 44,100Hz.
Doing this seems to make the track play twice as fast, I guess because there just isn’t enough data there to fill up that sample rate?
I selected the whole track and changed the speed to -50% so that it was roughly the same length as the original. Then I extracted it to MP3.
The finished product is an mp3 that winamp seems to register as being at 44Khz but that still won’t go into the playlist of the burning software. Hopefully I’m doing something really obviously wrong that you guys can point out to me.
