Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi friend, I bought an old NAD 5440 and need to make an audio test CD to test my equipement. The file download was in WAV-format, which I need to convert to something the NAD is able to read. I cannot find anywhere a list of formats enabled by it. Can you help me there please?? I have the WAV MP3 converter available enabling two dozens of formats. BR, Jouko

    Many thanks!!

    I have now found a wav-mp3 concerter and an appropriate burner program to solve the problem.
    Another thing is that mp3 cannot remain the sound quality of wav but that is an offset one has to accept.

    Best regards,
    Jouko

Audio CDs do not use WAV as their sound format, using instead Red Book audio. The commonality is that both audio CDs and WAV files have the audio data encoded in PCM. WAV is a data file format for a computer to use that cannot be understood by CD players directly. To record WAV files to an Audio CD the file headers must be stripped and the remaining PCM data written directly to the disc as individual tracks with zero-padding added to match the CD's sector size. In order for a WAV file to be able to be burned to a CD with most burners it should be in the 44100 Hz, 16 bit stereo format.

Convert online video to audio for CD-burning


Here we talk about the tutorial of how to convert online video to audio for CD-burning. AIFF format is the best format for CD-burning. First, let’s talk about why AIFF is the best format for CD-burning. There are people ask about what formats usually use for CD-burning. As i know, FOUR: AIFF, AIFF-C, WAV, Sound Designer II.

AIFF is audio interchange file format. It is a standard full-quality audio format.

AIFF-C is AIFF-compressed. No Mac programs that support AIFF-C. I’ve seen AIFF-C on SGI machines.

WAV is a full quality audio format associated with Microsoft Windows.
Sound Designer II is a format invented by Digidesign for use in Sound Designer II (as the name suggests.) It can be used in the Mac version of Pro Tools, but it is currently deprecated, since it requires the use of the resource fork, and resource forks are not supported in Windows.

Of the four formats mentioned, the best all-around is AIFF. It is more versatile than WAV, but is easily converted to WAV if needed. It has good cross-platform support, and it retains the full digital quality (it is not compressed with a lossy compression algorithm, like MP3 and AAC.)

AIFF is the standard file format that is used to write audio to CDs. For high quality sound and low file size, most people would convert it to a AIFF. How to convert online video to audio for CD-burning?

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning


I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!

Want to play cd on old cd player


If you want an old CD Player to play a disc burnt on a PC, the file format has to me .wav. Most burning software will convert other formats to .wav files.

Plug in for downloaded ringtone


You can't actually do that.
If you have the original version Katana, the 6600, it's only plays polyphonic ringtones, in the qualcom format of QCB.
Freeringers.net has a good help section if you sign up with them, here's a cut and paste version.

You basically need a program to convert an mp3 to a wav file format. (like dbpower amp but there are many others, alot of them freeware).
Sound recorder on your computer applications, to pick a segment and crop the audio. Usually about 30 to 60 seconds is good enough. There's a file limit size on the Katana for downloads of about 100kb.
And a converter program that will convert wav to qcb. You can download an application from Qualcom Communications for free, or this little program called purevoice.
http://www.freeringers.net/apps/pvconv.exe
All you do is little drag the wav file over this application and it automatically compiles in about 3 seconds, a qcb file into the same folder.
http://www.qctconnect.com/products/purevoice_downloads.html
Provides the full version of purevoice convertor so you can listen to the quality of the qcb file.

You'll need an application to convert the MP3 or CD to a WAV file. We suggest this free tool:
dBpowerAmp Converter 10.1 (Download and install it)

You'll also need PureVoice for QCP conversion:
PureVoice Converter (No installation. Right click "Save Target As...")

If you're running Windows Vista you'll need the Windows XP version of Sound Recorder:
Sound Recorder (Right click link, "Save Target As...", save to "C:\Windows\System32\")


s_win.gif Conversion Steps:

Note: If you want to rip a song from a CD, replace step 1 with these instructions.
  1. We'll assume you're converting a file named "test.mp3" for this guide. Insert your own file name instead. Run dBpowerAmp and select the "test.mp3" file and click "Open".
  2. Change the drop downs to "Wave", "16 Bit (CD)", "8000 Hz", "1 'Mono'", Output To: "Folder", and "Browse" to select your "Desktop".
  3. Click "Convert >>" and once it's completed click "Finished" and you'll have a file named "test.wav" on your Desktop.
  4. Run Sound Recorder (included with Windows) and from the "File" menu "Open..." the "test.wav" file created in step 3. (if you can't find Sound Recorder, see Needed Applications above)
  5. Shorten the ringtone to 30 seconds or less. You can also crop it so it starts at the beginning of the choirs. To crop the audio clip, use the "Edit" menu to "Delete Before Current Position" or "Delete After Current Position". [?]
  6. Click the "File" menu and select "Save" which will overwrite the "test.wav" file.
  7. Grab and drag the icon for "test.wav" and drop it on top of the PureVoice icon "pvconv". It will convert and create a new file named "test.qcp", almost like magic.

Lg burner refuse to burn .wav format


  1. try playing the *.wav files on your computer from their location on the hard drive
  2. Make sure that your writer can burn all the other file formats by burning a disk e.g data disk, if it fails then its not a problem with wav files its the writer that require reconfiguration
  3. If it can burn the disk then burn a music audio disk with your *.wav files (music audio cd uses *.wav format)
