I am trying to put my mps on to a cd but some off them are to long , can you recommend a free programme i can use to split the mp3 track.

Thank You

What do you mean too long? Are you saying you have mp3 files that are more than 700MB in size?!

  dp600 11:22 14 Jun 2004

no but they are oner 80 min long and my win media player on xp tells me they will not fit

I've read this several times and still cannot understand what you are saying here. You will only get 700mb's worth onto a cd - -and splitting 'em ain't gonna make the slightest bit of difference.

i have an mp3 audio file of 110 MB ,can i split it up into 2,3 4 pieces so I can then put it on a few cds like spliting an avi file into pieces to fit a long film onto a few discs.

It will fit on one cd...

The length of time the MP3 track takes to play is irrelevant, however the size of the file is!

a 650meg file on 1CD could/ should take hours to play.

I have 175 Rock tracks on a CD approx 4MEG each total playing time approx 7 hours.

If your Burning prog is converting the file to (CDDA) play on an audio (incar)(normal)CD player then yes it could be longer than 80 minutes.

I am soory but as you can tell I am very new to this , the file is 2 hrs long and the cd only takes 80 min.Thanks for all your patience.

agh - - the mist is clearing - - -are you saying your gonna convert this mp3 file to a music file, thus expanding it out to greater than 700mb ??
If so, I think your gonna have to convert onto your hard-disc, then split up and export onto CD - - there are tools out there to split but for the life of me can't think what they're called.

You should save MP3 files to CD as Data not Audio. I made that mistake and Nero automatically converts them to CDA if you save as an Audio CD. Have a look here click here

Once they are in wav format I use a programme called LP Ripper which will split the track into as many separate tracks as you like. From click here I usually record all my LPs and Cassettes as one long wav file then split them back to separate tracks for saving as an Audio CD. But if I want MP3 files on CD I burn them as a Data CD.
