I am currently giving a trial run of Nero Linux 18.104.22.168 and, like most ordinary users - supposedly anyway - I want to collect various pieces of music from external sources on my hard drive in order to burn them on a common CD-R(W). Having made it thus far, I can see the perfectly reasonable file sizes of the attempted tracks by selecting the apt source location with the File System Editor. Typically, the memory occupied amounts to between 20 and 40 MB per track.
Now, the two interesting things are as follows (I 've only investigated .wav files so far):
1) As I drag and drop a .wav file of, say, 25 MB's size down to the Track Editor
it indeed keeps that size unless it was Nero Linux which stored that file
on the hard disk in the first place (see below).
2) A .wav file of the same size originally stored by Nero Linux gobbles up
the entire memory available; allegedly demanding > 20 GB !!! Of course,
the burning attempt comes to naught immediately.
Am I doing something TERRIBLY wrong here, or?
