I have to preface this question by saying that I am EXTREMELY MP3/CD Burner illiterate.

There is a clip from a radio show that is about 30 minutes that I would like to record onto a CD. Next to the link to listen to the clip is a message saying "MP3 format. right click here and "save target as" to download"

My question is, what exactly do I need to do to get this 30 minute clip onto a CD?

I have a CD Burner on my computer, and the software that came with it is called Adaptec Easy CD Creator. I have never listened to an MP3, or downloaded one, so I doubt that I already have any software to play one.

If anyone is curious, the clip is at this website:

ANY ideas or help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks a ton...

First of all, Easy CD will convert the MP3 to a regular CD track (.WAV,.CDA) so if that is all you want to do with it, just burn it and listen to the CD. If you wish to listen to it before you burn, download

WINAMP

and you are on your way.

That makes perfect sense, but how do I convert this MP3 file to a .WAV file? I have the file downloaded to my desktop, and the icon is a RealPlayer icon if that makes any difference.

Well, Adaptec Easy CD Creator version 4 will convert the mp3 for you. All you have to do is create a new music CD and add the mp3 file to the "playlist" in Easy CD Creator and then create the CD.

If you have WinAmp (which you should do anyway because it's dead good ) then you can go into the Preferences menu, and set the output plug-in to "Nullsoft Disk Writer" and choose a destination directory; all the program's audio output will now be as .WAV files to the selected directory.

Mtucker is correct. If you have Easy CD Creator 4, you don't have to manually convert the MP3 to a wav file. You just select the format for the CD you want to burn as 'audio CD' find the file, and voila!
