I have large 3 hour WMA files. I need a program that will
automatically convert the wma file to 5 minute wavs that I will be
able to burn to CD.

What products will do this?

1. Convert to wav. I do not know how to do that off the top of my head,
maybe someone else will suggest how.

2. Use CD Wave Editor to split the wav.

I could use a program to automatically mix all my projects, but there
are some things that are just better done by human beings. Unless
there are clear divisions that a program could recognize (and programs
are pretty ignorant about those things) you'll spend more time
correcting what it though it was supposed to do than to just split it
up yourself.

Have you explored all the options in Windows Media Player? I know that
once you figure out how, you can burn CDs from that program. I
wouldn't be surprised if it also had a tool to insert track marks.

I found two tools that can do it automatically. CueListTool (freeware) and Audition.

How do they know where to make the splits? If it's that obvious, it
wold be easy to do with "hand tools." And if you have to prompt and
teach it what to do, you might as well just do it.

But then I've always been a "hands on" kind of guy.

Re-read the subject line Mike...

It wouldn't require any decision making other than splitting the file
every 13,230,000 samples.

Yes, I read what he said, but without knowing that he really means
this (and why) it doesn't make sense. I took "five minute segments" to
mean individual segments that had a logical beginning and end, that
were roughly five minutes in lengh, like maybe individual songs.

If all he wants to do is put index marks on the CD every five minutes
just to make the counter tick over, I guess it might not be too hard
to write a program to do that - if he's willing to pay for it. Not too
much special application freeware around these days.

Oh, you made THAT leap. Based on the many seemingly bizarre inquiries I
read here, I've quit worrying about whether the application makes sense
to me or not. Making sense of the reply is an exercise for the reader!

Actually, I can think of a reason for putting an index mark every five
minutes (or some other "clock-friendly" interval) in a long recording
of, say, a lecture, long sermon, court hearing recording and things
like that. If you know that what you want to hear is around 25 minutes
give-or-take into the recording, you can quickly jump there, listen
for a bit, and decide if that's the place you want or if you need to
jump back or ahead another five minutes. You're likely as not to start
in the middle of a word, but you'd get the gist of it pretty quickly.

On the other hand, if it's a continuous concert recording, marking
fixed time intervals doesn't make a lot of sense.
