Hi I am sure there is a simple answer to this, but I have been unable to find one! I have been trying to record some music from a friend's CD onto her PC.However, the Windows Sound Recorder will not record more than 60 seconds of music. On my Win 98 PC I have no problem with recording longer pieces using sound recorder. Having delved into Tools and Options - and anywhere else I can think of - I have drawn a blank. Any ideas would be most welcome. Severn Bore
Thanks to Diodorus Suculus and Night Flyer. Although Night Flyer has pointed me to a workaround, it is very cumbersome and one would have expected Microsoft to provide a much more straightforward solution. Especially as Win XP was supposed to be rather more friendly and entertainment orientated. I already have Audacity and tried recording via this, but could not get satisfactory sound levels. However, I will have another try as I do use Audacity very successfully for editing music to specific lenghts and for creating MP3 files.
Thanks for the tip about WMA. I am not really familiar with it due to lack of use- although have ver 7 on my PC. I did find I could copy tracks from the CD onto the hard drive, but this happened in the native file format for the CD. Audacity id not recognise the file type. However, I will explore further in view of your advice that it is possible to save in both OGG and MP3. Thanks again
