converting sound file formats

  sheila.weston 12:24 14 Mar 2011

I have a DVD of a speech which I would like to get into my audacity program. I have downloaded 'cd to mp3 ripper', which also converts to wav, but I can't get it to work. Does anyone know this program or can you suggest an alternative? The files on the CD are *.cda format.

Thank you for any help.

I have downloaded the audioconverter. is this what you mean. The problem is that I can't find the cds files which i want to convert. I have them on an audio cd and have copied them to my data drive as a second 'string', but neither show up. Any ideas? The play ok when I select them (on itunes).

Sorry. I have the two *.cda files on a CD (not DVD)and have also copied them to the hard drive.

Actually, the CD to MP3 Ripper is where I started! When you open the program, woodchip, what do I put in the 'Device' box. I am able to fill in the output folder box, but don't know what to put for 'no'. and the other spaces. There isn't an option to browse for the files which I want to convert.

no idea i use another program that changes wav to mp3.

you should be able to brows to the files you want to change if its a cd load it first then brows to it and select it then press go. that should be all that's needed

If you put the CD into the drive the program may see it and then you just press go after showing it where to save files to

No, it just opens with itunes and then 'plays' the audio. Looking at the help file in the program it shows a picture where there are a lot of files in the larger space and the device box has 'D: CD-S520/A ASUS'. Something is wrong somewhere, but I can't see what. It is obviously not reading the CD for some reason.

The CD is a Traxdata 16x speed 80 minute cd-R.

Perhaps I'll try copying the files to another CD.

I have just found click here and will try that tomorrow.

Cancel the last. It appears to be the same as the one I have tried.

Sheila why not just rip the cd with WMP ?
you can either rip to mp3 or wav audacity will then accept either
