Not enough info. Is it a commercial CD? If so, it should not be all 1 track. It looks to me as if someone has copied it. in which case you would need to record it (in real time) to your hard disk and then use a programme like LP Ripper to split it back to separate tracks.

I'm not sure LP ripper could do it as it looks for gaps. You'll just have to play it & use the fabulous human abilty to recognise the changes, unless you don't mean what you've said. CD, records & tapes are always one track but have inter-tune gaps. If that is what you mean then LP ripper will split it into tunes.

When I play a CD it tells me which track is playing.

Goldwave will do what you want. It is shareware but the demo is the full program and you only have to pay if you want to get rid of the nag screens. click here

As you have nero, record to your HDD using the wav editor then edit the file by cutting off each track and pasting to a new window. Save as whatever track name you want. Start working from the back and progressively work to the front. It's a bit quicker that way. You can then select all the new tracks and burn a fresh CD. Trust there are no copyright issues involved.

Hi, I download Country Music using 'Real Player'. You have to keep track of the recording time. I keep it to 70Mins. I then save it to 'My Documents' This is recorded as track 1.I then transfer it to CD using Media Player. Being for my own use I can handle the interruptions. If you really want to make Quality CDs I can guide you through the proccess, but at todays prices this will cost you a one off payment of £5. Cheers, Bill

I think what clover64 means is when he plays this CD he cannot move to the next track, as it is only 1 track. I agree with you that LP Ripper looks for blank spaces but you can move the times backwards and forwards. I use it all the time.

Let's hear from clover64 again as to what he is trying to do.

Hi clover64, Separating tracks on CD. is accomplished by using software dedicated for that purpose. A program by Macmillan aptly called 'CD RECORDER' achieves this to great effect, It is actually termed 'Unpacking'. Unfortunately 'CD RECORDER' is not compatible with WIN. XP. I have to use two computers, my second one running WIN 98. to produce top quality CDs. (For my own use of course). Hope this will be of help to you. Cheers, Bill.
