I have a large WAV file that I would like to put on CD's that I
can play on my car stereo..  It is 46.2 MB in size. Roxio will allow
only 24.6 MG, so I would like to split it, using Audacity, then
export the two halves, then burn two disks. .It's been awhile since
I've used Audacity, so I'm asking for advice.

Still pretty much the same process.
I have attached a link to a site with some decent info. I take no credit for the accuracy of the site, but it is on par with exactly how I have cut out audio for ring tones and announcement files.

Drag and drop the audio file onto the cd and burn it with the built in windows burner. 46.2 mb isnt  that large, they are just limiting what you can do so people will pay for it.

Roxio - haven't heard that name in years, surprised they're still around

A CD has about 700MB space, as Chris said use Windows built in burner or any of the multitude of free burners out there
http://www.imgburn.com/  - probably one of the best most popular burners for free, have used it for burning literally thousands of DVD's

The recording runs 1 1/2 hours.  There is not enough room on one disk

Check playable formats for the stereo, you may not need an audio cd and just burn the cd as a data cd if a newer stereo, possibly converted to MP3 etc

Most modern cd players and I'm not talking the last year or so can play many formats - I have a nearly 10 year old stereo that can play pretty much anything

I found a program called  NCH wavepad.
It works a lot like Audacity, but is easier to understand and use.  One of the suggestions
under 'file' was 'split file'. This I did, and it worked.    Case closed

Glen, is the trial fully functional or did you need to purchase? Just had a look at their home page and it looks quite comprehensive. I hesitate installing it if it doesn't allow saves in the trial to give it a decent run before buying though?

I used it free several times.  I will not buy it.  I have completed my objective.
Case closed.  Thanks for your concern.     Glen
