Symptom: Bad Burn

  1. Jul 13, 2005 #1
    I'm burning an audio CD using Windows Media Player. The process stopped right after finishing a song. I assume that the proceeding song is corrupt. After going through the process of converting it why can't it detect the corruption earlier? That was a waste of a CD! The file plays fine in Winamp or Windows Media Player.

    Cause: ?

    Solution: ?

    In that case does anyone know of a program that can edit .mp3 files? I want to break up an audio file because it plays continuously. If so, what's the name of it?

    Forget it, I got one.

    Will anyone provide the name of a program that converts .mp3 files from 128 KBPS to 192 KBPS ?

    There's no point to it. Re-encoding rich data to a lower bit rate is a lossy transform. When you try to reencode at a higher bit rate, you just get rubbish data thrown in to fill in the blanks.

    Interesting, and what about when you convert from 256 to 128?

    256 -> 192 or 128 = smaller file size, lower quality

    128 -> 192 or 256 = larger file size, no gain in quality.
