    Great to join the enlightened !

    I own a huge collection of cds and am trying to load into my ipod which came with musicmatch for my pc. A lot of my Cds are mixed sets of electronic (dance ) music and I need to figure out the best way to convert them to mp3. Im sure that i might have to save it as a single file (which would prevent me from being able to "scan" the cd once an MP3. This would be acceptable but i would prefer keeping the original CD insertion points at every mix if possible. Anyways, the single file recording can be done as a Wav. file but what then?

    Most CD ripping software makes separate files from each track, that shouldn't be an issue. I happen to use AudioGrabber and LAME to encode my MP3's, but there are tons of other options.

    Well, what i mean is, I see no option in musicmatch for recording the cd as a continous mix so the cd plays the set as it was mixed by the dj.

    I'm not really familar with dance music. Or with what you are talking about.

    What do you want here?

    Each track on the cd to be its own file?
    Or one long file that is every track on the cd combined?

    house music is what Im talking about....

    A dj mixed set is a continous music set made up of @10-16 different songs mixed at the start and end at the same beat / tempo. What the CD usually does is insert points at the mix point so that one can scan through the cds songs.

    Anyways for all you Musicians out there Im posting Music match's
    reply to this problem:

    To record multiple tracks from a CD as one track (you are correct, you will not be able to scan or fast forward to the next track), please do the following:

    - Open Music Match Jukebox.
    - Click the "Options" menu.
    - Select the "Settings" menu option.
    - Select the "Recorder" tab.
    - Under "Make Track Clips", place a check in the "Enable" box.
    - Set the "Length" option (the length option will need to be set for the total
    time (in seconds) of all the tracks you wish to record as one).
    - Click "OK" to save the entries made and exit the dialog.
    - Open the Recorder module to select the tracks for recording using the
    following method:
    - Click the "View" menu in Music Match Jukebox.
    - Select the "Recorder" menu option.
    - Select only the first track you want to begin recording.
    - Click the Start button in the Recorder window.

    When the recording is complete, please be certain to disable the Make Track
    Clips feature.
