Instructions for burning CDs

If you wish to burn these audiofiles to the CD, make sure you select "AUDIO CD" format. Both mp3 and wma files can be recorded as audio CD files. The CD burner software automatically converts these files to CDA format, which is a standard used by all CD players. Most CD burning software accepts both WMA and MP3 files, although some software will not accept WMA files. For this reason, as of March, 2004, we are providing audiofiles in both WMA and MP3 format . For earlier files, please download the WMA to MP3 converter specified in the HDCN Audio FAQ list .

If you record wma or mp3 files directly to the CD without choosing "AUDIO CD", your CD will be recorded as a Data CD, and only players capable of decoding those files will be able to play your talks, and the CD that you make will not be playable in a standard CD player.

Audio CD Burning steps:
  1. Please download the WMA or MP3 file to your PC in whatever folder you wish to store it.
  2. Open your CD burning software (Nero, Roxio Easy CD or other)
  3. Choose the "Audio CD" option (NOT the DATA CD option!
  4. Browse to the place where you stored the downloaded files to load them into the recording program (You can drag & drop from Windows Explorer)
  5. Click "Burn CD" or "Record" button
  6. If in doubt, ask someone under 17 years of age to help you!
