Rana Help: Records to CDS (16) RE: Help: Records to CDS 26 Apr 00

Hi Art,

You'll have to purchase a rewritable/recordable CD drive. These seem to be about $300 (Canadian) internal and about $450 external. You'll also be getting a good archive/back-up system for your computer.

To do a audio CD you'll need about 750 mb free on you harddrive to record the stuff using a program like audiotools (more if you need to edit the wav files such as scratch removal), Then you will have to burn it onto CD using the recordable CD drive. This can take about 3 hours with the one I have - 75 min for a test phase, 75 to actually write it (newer models might have 4x writing speed, mine is 2x but I have to use 1x to ensure it works), so one sets it up and goes to bed.
