Recording onto a CD

  dave24 16:11 05 Aug 2009

I have been able to record from vinyl records to my PC, but I am unable to record a CD from that file in a form which can be played on a CD player. I am using Audacity, so can export the file as .mp3, .wav or .ogg.

Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?

Use .wav format for a normal CD player and make sure you finailize the disc

Also make sure your CD player accepts CD-R's / CR-RW's!!!

Are you burning the CD as opposed to exporting te file to a CD as click here?

Use CD-R if possible..CD/RW are not reliable for use on a CD player.

If you have iTunes (free) you can import to i tunes music in mp3 format and burn a CD in audio format. It will also let you print a jewel case insert with artist, track etc.About 20 tracks per CD. I agree with CD - R. I also use Roxio Creator 2009 but this is not free. I do not know Audacity - does it have an "audio" function ?

Thanks to all who replied. I will bear in mind all that has been said.

Assuming you are using a microsoft system (win 2000,ME,XP,Vista).
Import the files into your media player
Select the tracks and right click-- add to burn list.

When ready, put your blank CD in the drive and burn in CDA (CD Audio).
This will play in virtually any CD / DVD player.

A cd will normally hold about 20 normal length tracks
