Talk:How to burn CDs
Update Plan - Peter 4Apr12
- As of 4Apr12 we have restored the content to the Talk page to faciitate links in the frozen online 2.0.0 manual and installed 2.0.0 manuals (as content from this page was migrated to the 2.0.1 Alpha manual).
- Post 2.0.1 release we will:
- trim back the page leaving only the first intro note,
- add a link to the SF legacy FAQ.
13 March 2007: The advice appears a bit restricted, as it mentions WAV/AIFF and 44100 Hz sampling frequency only. This may apply to some programs, but certainly not to all. The CD burning program I'm currently using (OEM installed Sonic DigitalMedia LE - not otherwise recommended...) happily lets me drag-and-drop(!) mp3-files(!) to its track list window. These are subsequently burned as a standard audio CD. I seem to remember that on my previous computer its version of Nero (must have been from 2001 approx) let me do something similar.
I have recently recorded several old LPs, cleaned them in Audacity, saved them as mp3s (128 kbit/s) and then burned them as audio CDs with Sonic. While not theoretically optimum quality wise, I judge these choices suitable for me, considering LP quality, file sizes and my old, fading ears ;-)
