    Use DVD to burn a playable CD?

    They are all 2 sides - A and B. All 5 tapes are recorded on both sides. The longest side is 46'23" long [after editing] but it has over 40 minutes on the other side. I think you can still get the 99/100 minute CDs but they come from China and there is no information on the quality. I'm talking to the owner of the tapes tomorrow and hopefully he can take MP3 or WMA format as I'm doing this as a favour.

    There are CDs available that can take 99/100 minutes but are not readily available and from what I read, they were not reliable.

    Ditto the first step. I bought a small device and transferred the tapes to MP3 on a micro card. However there were 5 tapes and 2 of them are 90 & 80 minutes long after I tidied them . All use both sides of the tapes. The CDs will only do about an hour so that would make 7 CDs which could be a solution and less work but I'll have a look and see if I can make logical breaks and put it on 6 CDs. I need to make a couple of copies so I'll ask if they specifically want the CDs to play on a player of can take MP3 or WMA format.

    Thanks dbminter. They're audio tapes so it looks like I will have to join them and then split them into 6 CDs so that they can play on a normal CD player.
  5. I have tape cassette files that I want to transfer to CDs and to play in normal CD players. A couple of the tapes are too long for normal CDs and I don't want to split them. Can I record them as long CDs on a DVD and will that be acceptable to play on a normal CD Player?
