Extra Time

I've finally finished my track list for this edition of Burn It. According to WinAmp, it's at 79 minutes and 58 seconds - enough to fit onto a CD. However, both Windows Media Player and MP3 CD Converter tells me that there's more time than that (WMP is over by 9 seconds and since MP3 CD Converter adds an extra second between songs, it's over by 23 seconds).

Does anyone know of a converter that lets them burn CDs without the extra time? I could swap a song out for another, but now it's a matter of principle. It will fit on the damn disc.

Did you try Nero?

Second on the Nero choice. With the later versions you can cross fade the tracks (5 secs is what I usually use.)

yep. with Nero you can either take out the extra seconds between tracks or like Brian said, crossfade. just be careful with crossfading b/c it can sound really fucking lame if you don't put songs in a good order that flows.

I'll concur with Nero or Roxio. If you need a few extra seconds programs like those will save you a few seconds with the crossfades. And girl is right. It's gotta flow. I use it all the time!

Yes, Nero and Roxio (I use Roxio), also Music Match Jukebox ...

In short, just about anything except what you're using now! :D

Hey, this is off-topic, but ...

Did you sign up for the Everquest 2 beta test? Let me know if you get accepted ... They probably won't take me, I'm not hardcore enough ...

I use Roxio. If you select "burn disc at once" on the Music burning option (the more complicated looking second option. Not the first option) it doesn't put in the extra seconds.

On another note though, I signed up for this burn-it session weeks ago and was just wondering if/when you notify us of who we are supposed to send the discs to?

I'm Nero Burning Rom, Bitch!

If you want to be really cool you can beat mix the songs like a real DJ :-)

MixMeister Pro5 or express will help you mix it and then will seprate the songs into tracks so it is not just one long song.

And it will burn the cd for you also....
