Recording BBC comedy programs to CD

  benson68 16:37 02 Jun 2008

I want to have some radio comedy programs recorded to CD in MP3 format, to listen to in the car. I used to do this with Musicmatch, but this is no longer available. In Audacity, the recording stops at about 21 minutes, & some of my programs are on tape, each side of which is about 45 minutes!
I'm using a Sony stack system, linked via phono cables from the headphone socket.
I've also got Sony Sonic Stage, but can't find a way to use this.
I'm going to convert to MP3 via dbPowerAmp.

Can anyone suggest a way to avoid the early halt in Audacity?

The BBC always stated that it has no objections to the majority of its TV and radio programmes being recorded for personal use.

It always seemed a sensible approach to me, particularly in view of the vast number of VCRs (later PVRs) in use throughout the UK.

I've got Nero, but haven't used it much. Can you point me in the right direction, fruit bat?

Also, my son has suggested that the "standby" settings might have something to do with the Audacity recording packing in!

revert to audacity 1.2.6 - this is stable and may therefore not have the fault

Glad to help

Thanks folks, I'll give it a try.

Nero media player isn't listed in Nero 7 Essentials!
"record" in the help section doesn't bring anything up at all connected with recording.
Perhaps it isn't included with the free version.
