Recommended Posts

Hi, new at this so PLEASE bear with me? I have several tracks on several CD's and wish to transfer this to a SINGLE or maybe two DVD's. IS this possible please with Imgburn? I had thought to make images of the CD's and then burn these on a DVD but can I do it? I'm POSITIVE someone will know but while I can fit kitchens......

 

(Sorry NO log as this is NOT something the prog. provides a log for?)

No you cannot burn to DVD, because DVD does not support the redbook audio standard and only supports data sectors in 2048 not 2352 bytes.

 

What you can do, is rip your audio CDs with Exact Audio Copy or any other audio ripper to WAV, and convert either to MP3 (lossy) or FLAC (lossless) and you can burn those onto a DVD as DATA.

 

Still players will only support either MP3 discs (CD or DVD) or DVD-Audio.

 

I assumed you wanted audio, because in your post you stated a disc with multiple tracks, and usually that is associated with CD-Audio.

Hi Rincewind, yes the discs are a language course and I wished to convert them to a DVD as it would be easier to carry them around and I had thought play as well. The course is some 15 discs! And so is a little cumbersome! But as say one or possibly two DVD's a lot easier? And as I say I am a bit NOT very wordwise with these things! So yes I think you got it right from my rather poor attempt. Shows you KNOW what you are about to me!

 

So not an easy thing to do then eh? And suggestions please??

 

Regards

Since it is a language course disc, convert them to MP3 (you don't need lossless), and chances are you can fit them on a DVD (AFTER you have ripped and converted the tracks to MP3).

 

Unfortunately I don't know of any FREE encoders, you can use Winamp or DBPoweramp but again those are not free.

 

You cannot rip audio tracks with imgburn by the way, it will only make a cue+bin file, not .wav (audio rip).

You can use EAC to convert to mp3 http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/

 

I used to use CDex, unfortunately not very up to date but easy to use. http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

 

At a rate of 128 kbit/s (commonly used) = compression ratio of 11:1, offering adequate audio quality in a relatively small space, probably those 15 discs will fit on one single CD if the course are under 1 hour each.

@ Rincewind Thanks man! Great reply and I simply appreciate your help. All I can say, Thank you.

 

@ ianymaty Likewise thank you VERY much, used this programme for ages now and always got along no problems? Well not many as it usually tells you if something HAS gone wrong! (Excellent sound effects!) But first time in several years I have used or even looked at the forums and like so many GOOD programmes the forums are full of GOOD people!

 

Thanks to you I now feel I can complete this with little loss of discs?? And I have recently "ripped" some music so am quietly confident I will be able to do that.......(what is that about FAMOUS last words?)

 

Regards
