VBR MP3 burning problems

Recommended Posts

So Im downloading sertant tracks in the oc library and putting them on a cd, but theres a bit of a problem. Some of the music tracks in the oc library when downloaded have an extensive air time on them, where the music stops but this dead space continues for like 5 min. Other tracks act as though the time of music is for example 5:11 when the track is supposed to be 6min long meaning the track stops short. Anybody ellse encounter this problem and know how to fix it?

If the links work, than the metroid track when downloaded stops at 5:42 when trying to record on cd but its supposed to last 6min so you lose some of the track.

The vigilante metroid track however is like 13min when its supposed to stop at like 5:13.

These are just a few of the tracks that I found doing this. What is going on?

thancks lion but I'm afraid they dont work. One of the mixes still show as 5:40 when it's supposed to be 6min long. The other by vigilant is still reading as 13min when its supposed to be alittle over 5. I apreciate it though. How incredibly strange.

What program (and what version of said program) are you using?

I've had similar issues in the past. For example, I tried burning a mixtape that included some of the Pokémon: The First Movie soundtrack, and "Don't Say You Love Me" came out sounding like the Chipmunks, sped up to double speed but with enough silence that it came out the original length. Another CD of mine cut off the second half of "Fury of the Storm"...

It might just be a random error based on conflicts between your burning software and specific patterns of data in the MP3s -- an obscure bug that no one would even bother to fix. Maybe try converting them to another format or resampling them, then burn the new files?

that song -in your prime- is supposed to last 6min. not 5:42. In fact 5:42 is preciselly the lingth of time that I have on my player. That song is supposed to be 6min long. the problem with the song -in your prime- is that the song cuts off before the 6min time frame. Basically,if you're showing a time of 5:42 for the song in your prime, you're experiencing the same issue as I am with your player. If you notice, the track continues to play, long after the time of 5:42 is reached. If you try to record the track onto a cd, the track stops at 5:42.

@lion, I use windows media player. Windows Vista7. Again with the track -In your prime- the problem is that it cuts shorter than 6min. You dont get the opportunity to record the entire song onto a cd because it cuts off at 5:42. I really like that track so it's kind of a bummer. Even more bummer is that there appear to be other tracks on this site that do this same thing.

@synthony.I'm trying to convert the file to real player,which does show the time of 6min to that same song, unfortunatelly it keeps freezing whenever I try to burn the track -not suprising coming from realplayer, but still anoying as all out doors.

you can notice the selected area on screen, it start at 5.42. it's not the total lenght. the waveform is there from 5.42 to 6.00 so i have something playing between those time.

thanks lion. In further and stranger news, I tried using some other programs like real player to burn some of the files, real player seems to think some of the ocr tracks are copyright tracks and didn't want to burn them. I thought that was crazy, but when I went back to windows media player, sudently the tracks started working propperly. I cant say I understand it, but at least I'm happy. Thanks for the links. I'm going to DL them now in case this problem occurs again.

You guys rock:)
