Burning one large wav file to multiple cd's???

by ben1234 - 12/5/05 10:20 AM

I am using Roxio Creator Classic 6.2

Goal: Trying to burn a wav file that is 8GB large to multiple discs that can be played on any cd player. Unfortunately I wont be able to convert the wav file to MP3 because my cd players wont play MP3s.

What I have tried:

Try #1: (Music format) Used Roxio creator classic, added the wav file to the project list, selected music format. When I added the file to the project list, it only indicated I needed one disc (kind of strange). The rest of the file volume went into the buffer overrun. I figured once I filled the first disc, it would ask me for the second...so on and so forth. Negative on that, once the first disc was recorded, it didnt ask me for a second. Therefore this method did not work.


Try #2: (Data Format) Roxio cd creator classic 6.2 lets you create data cds with files that can span multiple discs. (I know that data files can only ~ (usually) be played back on the computer, but I figured Id give it a try. I added the file to the project list, selected data cd and the loaded a blank cd. After loading the cd, the progress bar found at the bottom of Roxio indicated that I needed 12 discs. Kewl...this might work! Once the first disc was done recording, Roxio asked me for the second disc...so on and so forth. Well, before I wasted all those discs, I tried the first disc in my cd boombox, didnt work. The cd player was unable to read the disc. I wasnt surprised though since I did record it as a data cd. I think it adds files to the index so the player didnt see the wav file. It played on the computer, but I figured on that, however, that wasnt my goal to play it on the computer. This method did not work either....well it worked, but not as a music wav file that could be played on any conventional cd player.

Im pretty sure I have to record it using the music format. Can Roxio Creator Classic do this?

Ultimate goal is to play each of these 12 cds sequentially...i.e. when the first disc is completed, the second picks right up where the first left off.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
