Hi, I would really appreciate some help with this:

I have a lot of audio files in WAV format.  Before anyone says anything they are not music files and I do own the copyright!  I want to transfer all these files (about 100 or so) onto CDs that can be played on a regular audio player.  What I want is some software where I can just select all the files and click "burn" and when a CD is full the program will just ask me to insert another one.  If it arranged the files onto the most eficient format then that would be eve better.  All the programs I have used so far insist I sort out all the files in advance into CD sized groups and then burn them one at a time.  This is OK but it's time consuming and my files increase and decrease over time so it's never exactly the same files that need burning.

Does anyone know of any kind of file / audio management software I could use?

Thanks in advnace for your help.

David

Dear davidcharge,
you can buy a program called musicmatch jukebox at your local software store(found mine at best buy for $40). I use it extensively for converting music files from one format to another ie. audio, data,or MP3.

Hi davidcharge,

I Think you can't. Every cd burning program I know need can't arrange automatically 100s of files; You should find a program that computes the most efficient combination but you'll have to prepare the tracklist by hand.

It's fair easy and fast to do with Nero (http://www.nero.com/en/index.html)

Best Regards.

Sorted is a great program that allows you to sort files into folders of a specific size, i.e 700mb CD! It is free and downloaded from here: www.freedownloadscenter.com/Utilities/File_Cataloging_Utilities/Sorted_.html

You can download a free batch audio converter to convert from wav to cda (cd audio) http://www.dbpoweramp.com is a good one. Another is / http://www.audio-video.ws/audio-converter.html. There are many others about.

I don't know of anyway better way to do what you want to do, i think "sorted" will help you a lot though.

CDRWin burns audio CDs, it doesn't organise your playlist for most efficient space but does auto span CDs, so when chucking 100 or so WAV files onto a tracklist, when it hits 700MB it just says insert another blank, ensure you have the finalize option on before burning and it will auto finalize each disc too.  Not free, but cheap and very good for basic tasks.
