I have an audio file created from a cassette tape to CD that I need to use on a web page created with Netobjects Fusion 5.0 but it doesn't recognize the audio file... is there a way to format a cd audio file to a sound format recognized ..ie; wmv, wav, etc... ?

Thanks for any help or suggestions

There are a lot of software programs available that convert audio files. What is the original audio file format so a search can be done to check?

originally it was a cassette tape recording of a DJ's radio show, my brother-in-law copied it to CD for me so I would be able to use it on the computer. It shows as a CDAudio type file which doesn't tell me much. Have any suggestions on what to use to convert?

I need to backup here. :) The problem may be with Netobjects Fusion 5.0 if your computer recognized the file and played it for you. Possibly it's the media player code that Netobjects Fusion 5.0 is using or you may have to write the media player code yourself for the file. You should be able to explore the CD and copy the entire file name including extension and we'll have an idea from that.

CD Audio (.cda) tracks are audio files that can be stored on CD media. The .cda files are representations of CD audio tracks and do not contain the actual pulse code modulation (PCM) information. Cda files can be played only from a CD-ROM. This might be useful to you: Total Audio Converter

Free: Alt CDA to MP3 Converter 2.1

Other Sources

The file will have to be converted to a format that a media player like WMP can play. Then the media player code can be set up for your web page.
