    Can someone tell me why I can make a music cd with an audio file that was recorded at 16 bit stereo, 16kHz using Windows Media Player, but when I try to make the cd using HP Record now, an error message states that the file has to be recorded at 16 bit stereo, 22 or 44.1kHz sampling rate.

    I am recording from an analog camcorder using the Dazzle hardware and software, then extracting the audio to record to a cd. I can record at 44.1kHz, but the audio sounds like a jumbled mess. The pull down menu on the Dazzle software won't let the sampling rate stay at 22, so I can't record at that rate. Just am curious to know why Windows Media Player will allow me to record this file to a cd.

    Also is there any software programs available that will allow me to take an audio file and convert it to a file that is cd quality that will work with HP Record now and any other program I might use that needs this type of format.

    Any help would be appreciated, this is all new to me and am just trying to undertand the why's and why not's.

    Hope we both get an answer to your question!
    I have a Sony, using CD Extreme (came w/the burner)...burned some .wavs from WMP, testing stated ok, but when I played it, I didn't hear a thing.
    Tried to do another one and a popup box stated something to the effect '44.1KHz, 16 Bit' required :confused:
    What I have is stuff that reads MPEG Layer 3, 24 Bit 22,050 Hz, Mono ...whatever that means.
    Very confusing...wish there was a website that explains in easy-to-understand terms on how to do this stuff.
    I have burned data cds, but this was my first audio cd...different horse of a different color, I guess.
