[font=Comic Sans Ms][size=7][size=7] :tazz: I downloaded this great music file on my Windows media player but it is over an hour and will not fit on one cd. Is there any way to split this in half so I can get the last part of it? My cd only holds 80 min. Thanks, Denise. denise804@yahoo.com

How long exactly is it?

Nero supports a technique called overburning which allows you to cram an extra few minutes onto the disk but not all burners like this and it runs the risk of not allowing the CD to be playable by anything outside the system. Of course it also runs the risk of turning the burn into a coaster.

Failing that you may have no option but to edit the file with something like GoldWave to bring it down to under 80 minutes long.

Hi Denise. Welcome to Geeks to Go.

If you are only trying to burn it so that you can transfer it to another computer, you can do the burn as a Data CD. A Data CD will hold around 700 MB of data, which should be more than enough.

Also, you should edit your first post and remove your email address. Posting it in a public place such as this will only lead to more spam clogging your inbox, and that's not fun.
