Re: Cannot transfer Cassette Tape data to CD-R.

automatically breaks up the continuous input tape data into
individual 1.02MB files and automatically saves each of them with
an '.au' file extension. My problem now is to convert these
thousands of individual files to an extension, such as '.wav' so
that I can trnsfer them to CD using a burner.
This, of course, is ridiculous. It seems Audacity is not the way to
go for transfering tape to CD.
David: Working with the .au files is an incorrect assumption.
Once you have "loaded" your cassette (or any other) audio into
Audacity and edited it in any way you want, do _nothing_ except
select 'export as .wav' or 'export as .mp3' from the file menu, and
as stated previously, follow the prompts. Do _not_ go mucking about
with the .au files!
If for example you select 'export as .wav', type in the path and
filename. For example, if you save as
that's exactly where your full cassette1.wav will be found for
burning to CD with a separate program.
