Wave files to compact disks

By tedbelky ·
Question
I have the capability to record old vinyl LP's and singles to the harddrive
using wav files. Problem is how does one convert wav files to proper
compact disk supportable sound. I can make MP3 files from CD's but that
does not worry me. Can anyone help.

Wave files to compact disks

I just got my toe in the water on this in the last 10 days but here is what I think I know.

It appears the upside of the mp3 format is file size, an MP3 file is about 10% of the WAV file with the same song. So the CD-RW software you got along with the CD-RW you have should be able to record a WAV file.

I just bought a Acer CD-RW and it came with Adaptec software that does WAV files, from an existing (commercial) CD to a blank (CD-R) CD. I am not sure if it does MP3 files yet.

So the short answer ... you should not have to convert a WAV file to an MP3 file for recording a CD. If you want to do it for storage reasons try an excellent tool I found named CDex (search on the net for it). Simple and free, it rips CDs and converts between MP3 and WAV.

Good luck and enjoy!

With the software that came with your burner, you should be able to copy wav files to a blank cd regardless of how you got the wav files on your hard drive. If you want to play these anywhere, not just on your computer, I'd recomend using CDr's, not re-writeable disks. Your software ought to let you select files into a cue, mine is Adaptec's EZ CD Creator and it does this. I can pick wav files that are on the hard drive, or in the cd rom drive as a source to make an interim file on the hard drive, which is burned to the disk in a second step. Be sure to select to finalize the cd. That means you won't be able to go back and burn more songs to the blank space if any is left, but it also means you can play the disk in your car, walkman, or whatever.
