    I am importing all of my old tapes into my computer via sound studio. Is there a way to convert a 90 minute tape to fit to a single CD-R? :confused:

    An audio CD-R? No. Maximum length of an Audio CD is just under 80 minutes. Unless you've got (say) 5 mins of silence at the end of each side of the tape (was often the way, as I remember), it ain't gonna happen. Sorry.

    An MP3 Data CD-R? Yes, absolutely.

    PS: Okay, you could change the sample rate to speed the audio up and make it fit, but that would probably sound stupid.

    EDIT: Okay, so it is possible just about... cheers motulist.

    If you mean as audio CD that you can play in any stereo, then it is possible, though it's non-standard. You need to use the very unusual extended size 90 minute (800 MB) cd-r, and overburn capable burning software, and even then only some audio cd stereo systems will correctly play the whole disc.

    Why do you want to make audio CDs anyway? They're basically almost obsolete technology at this point.
