At our church we just started to make CDs. We bought a CD recorder but it only makes the masters in the WAV format. I don't mind but some of the services run longer than 80 minutes so it would take more than one CD. It is very inconvenient to try and swap them in mid service.
I would then convert the tracks into MP3 using ITunes. Before using ITunes several people told me that they could not play the CDs. I am not sure if they could not play tracks that were in the MP3 format or if they could not play them when I used Windows to burn the new CDs.
We went out and bought another recorder that makes the masters in the MP3 format but unfortunately I can not move the tracks over to ITunes. Do to the prior problem of people not being able to play the CDs I am a bit concerned if I use another program to make copies. Another problem for me is that we have three services a week. When they are in the MP3 format I can put all three services on to one CD.
I need some way to put the tracks from 3 CDs on to my computer and then create a new CD for the congregation members.
If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it.
