How can I get audiobooks onto CD

OK, using goldwave I have a number of Veeeeery large MP3s. Now I want to cut these files into 6 minute segments so that I can listen to them easily in my car. Is there a non processor intensive way to do this? I am looking into .cue files, but really need an automated way to do this. Any ideas?

never done it personally but I imagine you could dump it into a stereo editor such as Peak www.bias-inc.com and snip away.

I use Cool Edit to do these kinds of things. I'm sure you can do the same with SoundForge.

after rereading your post it occurs that any of the previously named programs will do the job just fine.

dump them into these programs, convert to wav files, snip away and save each segment and export them to your CD burner software. very easy to do.

the problem is that it takes forever to convert a 12 hour mp3 into a wav, and then back again. Mp3trim pro will do it directly, but they want $80 for registration.

what I am looking for is a mp3 editor, not a wav editor with a mp3 plugin.

thanks. I found that this morning and it is what I ended up using. Unfortionately it named the files file.001 .002 .003 and so on instead of mp3. So I dl'ed another program called the rename and used it wrong so the order of the files got messed up and I have to start all over again. oh well. It is still the best file I have found thusfar.

what player are you going to end up playing it on because my cd player doesn't read mp3s? that's why i got a little stumped when you wanted to avoid wav files.
