Splitting large MP3 to fit CD's

  mark e 09:13 28 Apr 2003

Could anyone advise me if this is possible
The file in mind is 700mb

You can buy 700mb CD-Rs, mark e.

If you just want to backup the file then I believe that this will do the job: File Splitter (290 K) click here

MP3DirectCut click here is a basic freeware MP3 editor that you could use. Cut the second half, and save as Part 1, then reload, cut the first half and save as Part 2.

700mb for an mp3 file? What is it?

Nevertheless, you might just squeeze this amount on an 80 minute cd, although you will have to save it as a data file because converting to audio will require about 7Gb. You could also lower the bit rate, although this will result in a loss of quality.

Sorry everyone.
Its a talking book its a 700mb MP3 file that i need to covert to play on normal cd players.

MP3 are already compressed, but a zip program could save another 6%, maybe just enough to make it fit, assuming your purpose is just for backup.

There was a similar thread recently about this : click here

I think you're going to need a few disks if you want to play it on a 'normal' CD player.

I am not at all surprised about the amount of disks, its just the splitting and conversion that i'm not sure about

Oops, got the wrong end of the stick :-(

In addition to Pesala's suggestions there is also a utility on PCA's download section. "MP3 Workshop v1.1" (March, 2002) which appears to do what you're asking for.
