Trackmarking and burning to CD

Hi, I have to do a CD for a club and they want it to be trackmarked, I have done this all throughout the mix however how can i change or convert the format from WAV to MP3? I think i can do it with Audacity but i have to copy and paste each track, but if i do this wont i lose the trackmarking??

 Also if i burn WAV to CD will it play in CD Players?

Regards

There's plenty of software out there able to either read a CUE file and burn single tracks from one long WAV file, or allow you to determine the points where you want to split the track.

You don't want to burn it as a WAV, you want to burn it as CD-Audio.

Just to clarify, when i done the trackmarking it recorded it in seperate wav files (14 in total)

 

Could you tell me some programs that you know?

 

Thanks

If you've already got the tracks separated, just burn them to a CD it will automatically turn each file into a track!  Be sure to use gap-less recording tho.

Google is your friend.

That's because you burned a DATA CD not an AUDIO CD.  Try changing that within your burning software.

Uhm, no.  You're burning a CD - are you looking to make a CD they can just play or need a device capable of playing an MP3 to use it?

Just one more thing is there a way to insert ID3 tags into the burned CD?

Yes; it's called CD-TEXT and many programs, including CDBurnerXP include it, just check it before burning.

If each of your tracks is a WAV file, they don't have ID3 information and thus will come up blank or unkown.  I can't remember if CDBurnerXP allows you to manually enter the CD-TEXT info for each track, but some software titles do allow it.  The other option is to convert your WAVs to MP3s, check their ID3 tags and burn that collection of files to CD-AUDIO.

Ok thanks, I am editing CD-TEXT with CDBurnerXP, seems pretty straight forward.

Thanks for your help :)
