1. Have a wav file that won't convert using Music Match to a wav. I get this error "Unable to add the following file to cd:xxxxx. Only WAV and MP3 stereo files (Not streamed)with a sampling frequency of 44.1 khz and 16 bits per sample can be added." Question: Can I somehow get this MP3 converted so I can get it onto a cd-r?

2. Te file will be approz. 78 minutes in length (assuming I can convert it). Are there any cd-r that will hold more than 74 minutes of music? If not, how can I edit the file so that it will fit on a regular 74 minute cd-r?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

1. Yes, you can. Go to Yahoo! and look for some freeware that will assist you in your quest.

2. Memorex makes 80 minute CD-R's.

If you have win amp you can use that to convert the .mp3 file to a .wav file.

1.) Open Winamp
2.) Go To Preferences (CTRL+P)
3.) Click on the I/O Tab (Input/Output)
4.) Click on NULLSOFT NITRANE MPEG AUDIO DECODER [IN_MP3.DLL] under INPUT PLUG-INS
5.) Click on NULLSOFT DISK WRITER PLUG-IN [OUT_DISK.DLL] under Output Plug-Ins
6.) Make sure that your DEFAULT EXTENSION is typed as MP3
7.) Make sure that your Process Priority Class is slected as HIGH
8.) Click on APPLY/OK
9.) Click on the PLAY button on your winamp player (Don't Hit +FILE!) A file box will appear
10.)Select your MP3 File from your directory. Click OK
11.)Your MP3 will be converted. Winamp goes through a process to convert it
12.)Your MP3 file should be saved to your desktop
13.)Don't play your new WAV file in Winamp, it will get messed up
14.)You have now successfully converted an MP3 to a WAV file!
