I used Total Recorder (TR) to convert some language wavs to MP3, not
realizing that only 44.1 can be put on a CD. The closest freq TR has is 40
but that's not acceptable according to Sony CD Extreme.

Anyone know of a prog that could run a batch conversion job? A freebee would
be great

Note that it's impossible to generate the original soundfiles with the
original quality... mp3 is still a lossy format.

Note that converting to WAV and recompressing one time will not
noticeably affect the sound quality.

I have never heard of that frequency. Nor do I understand how you could
possibly get such with TR as the only sampling frequencies available in it
are the normal ones of 48, 44.1, 32, 24, 22.05, 16, 12, 11.025, and 8 Hz.

The MP3s have to first be converted to wave. After that, anything that can
resample a wave. That includes Windows Sound Recorder. However, if you are
making an audio CD (that's what needs 44.1 Hz) there is no reason to do so
as you can just write the original files - those from which you made the
MP3s. If for some reason you no longer have the original waves, you can use
CDex to transparently decode/resample/reencode.
http://www.cdex.n3.net/

If you are trying to get your MP3s onto a CD _as_ MP3s you still need to do
nothing. Well, you do have to select "data" instead of "audio" in
CDExtreme.

Are you trying to create an audio cd? If so then Nero is possibly the
best way of doing this, you simply create audio CD, then drag the
MP3's and burn, it converts the mp3's to the correct rate for you as
it goes.

Use CDex (freeware) - allows conversions between many types of
formats, including re-encoding files to different frequencies such as
44.1. Can do batch conversions.

Latest version is 1.51 (and very good), however the CDRIP.DLL file
may cause some problems. If you have any problems starting CDex
after installing v1.51, download the zip of 1.50, unzip it into a
temp folder & move the CDRIP.DLL file across to replace the one in
the CDex program directory.

Please don't think that it is not a good program just because of that
hitch. I've found it invaluable as I download a lot of old jazz
recordings that are often done at 22MHz, and it only takes a few
minutes to convert them all to CD correct files.

The main page is at http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/downloads.php , and
all versions can be downloaded from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5... .

Good luck.

Or don't bother. Anyone who crossposts about a $19.95 product in a
freeware newsgroup is obviously an idiot. Unlikely to produce anything
worth downloading.

Sorry to reply here but my ISP filters news messages to which lamers have
attached binaries so I can't see it. Apparently - if I could see it - it
confirms the fact that you haven't a clue about what you are doing.

Search for a program Shuffler Music Converter.
Works great for me.

I haven't seen any of the earlier posts in this thread, so it may have
already been mentioned, but have you tried "CDex"?

I've used it for for a few years now and it does a great job of
ripping/converting (WAV > MP3 > WAV) and also supports freeDB (CDDB).

You can find it here:

Thanks to all for the great posts and the well deserved mauling ;-)

Yes, I streaked through that effort to put the mp3s onto the CD and
didn't notice that the TR settings were bit rate and NOT frequency


As it happens, I originally wanted to put the files on the CD in ogg format
but
Sony Extreme bawled at me, just as it did for the MP3s. Thanks to your well
deserved whacking and enlightenment, I formatted the CD for data and copied
all the oggs.

Great to have such a great bunch around when help is needed.

Have a wonderful weekend :-)
