View Full Version : Mp3s and CDs
22-03-2001, 09:44 PM
Dear Kev, Chocky, Little Al, other future moderator candidates, fellow BBSers:
I have a large number of mp3s on my computer at work and would like to 'burn' them onto CDs. Can get hold of a CD burner easily enough but understand that it's not as simple as that, that I have to change the format etc.
Anyone know what I need to do?
Ta v. much

Yeah. If not, then go somewhere like cnet.com downloads and look for software to do this.....MP3 to AIF

Well, depends what you wanna do really.
Do you want to burn them so you can play them as a normal cd? If so use Nero 5.0, its the ********. Do Create Audio Cd, Drag and Drop the files, and its done.
If you want to burn them so they are stil mp3 then use Nero 5.0 again.

There are many good pieces of software available to download, allowing you to convert MP3 format to Wav and vice versa. www.cdex.n3.net (http://www.cdex.n3.net) offers one of the best in my view. It takes very little time to download and is extremely straightforward to use. I've converted literally hundreds of files on it and I'm yet to have a problem with CDEX.
Burning on to CD is pretty straightforward after that. Adaptec offer an excellent piece of software(not free) that will do this for you in a very user-friendly way. I believe the latest version of Adaptec has its own Wav/MP3 converter built in, thus cancelling the need for CDEX and the like.

I got a question! How do you change mp3 files to .wav files? I have downloaded off Napster "Gladd All Over" and want to have it play when i start windows but i only seem to be able to use /wav files on my sounds part to do this so how do i change th e format?
Any Suggestions? Please PM them to me

Sir SC, its basically the same method you would used as if you were gonna burn a track to play in a regular CD player. I use MusicMatch Jukebox. Its primarily a music player (like WinAmp), but it also offers a very easy converter that swaps mp3s into wavs (unlike WinAmp.) There are many other conversion programs that can be downloaded in a matter of minutes, and do just the same job. Try a search on the search-engines and I'm sure plenty of free alternatives will be available to you...

I was trying to do this a couple of months ago and, not knowing where to start, went to google and typed in "mp3 to wav".
There is a site (honestly) called www.mp3towav.com (http://www.mp3towav.com) from which you can download a little program that does just that. and it works.
