Getting it back into trhe bottle?

  jack 10:07 19 Jun 2007

A friend handed me a couple of VHS instruction tapes and asked 'Could I put them disk please'

Easy Peasy - I did them in a trice from VHS player to PVR and then burned and finalized a DVD. job done

Or so I thought.

It turns out that these tapes are Pilates instruction tapes and she wanted only the audio onto CD so that she could do the business whilst using her portable CD player.
A totally different kettle of fish.

I can copy to the PC the audio only via a suitable lash up- done it before- but the sounds are recorded via a suitable program [Audacity]and become MP3 or Wave format.
Here I want to take the input whatever it comes as and get it back the CD format, are CD players MP3/Wave compatible
Any thoughts anyone?

CD players won't play wave and unless it tells you it will read MP3 discs, it won't play those either. Am I right in thinking that you've already got the audio in MP3 format and just need it putting on audio CD? If so, use Nero or a similar CD recording program, make a new audio CD, drag over the MP3 files and press Burn. It converts to audio CD format as it burns the disc.

Thank you 'R'- I will have to get the tapes back to put into PC.
I didn't realize there would be a 'backward' conversion.

We wait with baited anticipation.

Cd players use .wav as the recording medium, all Cd players will play .wav.

dBpowerAmp (used to be free) should do what you want
