Having trouble recording song onto a CD-R any help would be appreciated. I’m running Vista. Seem to be having trouble saving song to Media Player.
Starting with the song in Audacity? File > Export: WAV (Microsoft). That’s Audacity’s default high quality sound file format. When you name it, try to avoid punctuation marks and dates. After Export, right-click the file > Open With: Windows Media. You can probably drag the file into Windows Media. I’m assuming Vista had a Windows Media and it works the same way the others do.
Windows Media (at least the later ones) has a CD Authoring and Burning tool. Be careful to get the right CD burn. Audio CD is the one that will play your music on everybody’s CD players and in your car. Data CD is just a flat, shiny hard drive. A music file on a Data CD may not play in your car or on a CD player.
