    Whats up everyone, quick question, i usually download long mixes of the net that i listen to in my car, the thing is with these 70min+ mixes is sometimes there are parts youd rather miss, anybody know how i can tag certain parts as track numbers so i can get to some of the parts i like and avoid the others i dont? im sure there are ways to do them via editing programs i was hoping you guys could show me the simplest solution.
    Thanx :)

    the only way that comes to my mind would be to convert the whole thing to wav format then use a wave editor (there is one included in Nero) to break it up into segments. You can set the pause between them to zero so that they flow nicely into one another later.

    (I would not recommend reconverting the altered wav files to mp3, but rather burn the wav files directly)

    If you convert the whole thing to wav make sure you have plenty of disk space. It could be 7 gig.

    not a hijack directly - but can I veer OT and ask where you get those mixes? (parties on the horizon, so some burning planned here!)

    thanks if you can give any pointers

    MP3DirectCut will allow you to edit the mp3 directly. I think it will also allow you to add edit markers and export the new "mix"

    Adobe Audition (formerly known as Cool Edit) will allow you to edit them also. It will convert and edit any audio format.

    another vote for mp3directcut. i f you can get a cue sheet of the mix, the app can cut and save the songs automatically

    WinONCD maybe?

    well - so happens I was playing around with Roxios WinOnCD the other day (not I bought this for another reason in it's DVD incarnation and am actually not happy with it overall)... But I was burning an album and went to the track edit mode and it seemed to cover all you could need- so you could look into that maybe. Plus it come sfrom Roxio so should have V.Good compatibility (just avoid the DirectCD component I would say from my esperience)

    Nero problems after format and install

    I reformatted my pc and after installing Nero,i cannot burn cd's, it comes with the error "No Fixation" and then stops. Before i formatted i still couldn't burn a cd everytime as it would burn it and i could see it on the disc but i couldn't read it.i burned on the same disc several times ,each burn the same. Even on another pc i could not read it , any ideas would be great
