WaveStudio recording limitations

Am using WaveStudio 5.0.to record Cable Music channels and save as mp3 files.

I ‘recorded’ for 3 hours and ended up with a 54-min mp3 file. I then ‘recorded’ another 90 min session and wound up with a 30-min. mp3 file.

Could some knowledgeable soul please explain what is happening and what I must do to achieve longer mp3 files?

There is a strange “performing recording - %” meter of some sort at the bottom of the screen but I do not understand what information it is supposed to convey.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Did you contact the supporting department of the wavestudio product about this issue?
