:(After D/loading a 3CD set I found after unraring them that they have the ".cue" file extension, I tried to burn using Nero but can't get anywhere also, There are 3.cue and 3 Mp3 files, the Mp3 files are each too big to fit on a CD. Is there a program which will do it or do I need to convert them to something else?
Can anyone help?

Cue files contain image information for CD image files. They come paired with .bin files that actually contain the image information (and are larger). Many programs will burn bin/cue files. Nero can burn them, too. Just choose the .cue file when using the image burning option.

DietMp3 is an amazing program that I use often. It can shrink mp3's to less than half their original size and I hear little loss of quality.

Cue is listed in the file type options in Nero. You need to burn a cue/bin pair as an image and not just burn the files to CD. Images are usually burned (in the full Nero) under the Recording tab, depending on version. Or use Project or Disk Image in Express.

Hmmm, When I try to add files in nero express only the .cue files show, not the accompanying Mp3. When I tried to burn the .cue file yesterday (FoxburnerPro) I just got 7.5 minutes of the entire CD image. Now I've got Dietmp3 and I've shrunk the Mp3's so that will do for now, ,Thanks for your help
