Ok, so I needed to record my own composition and burn it onto four CD's, and send it off before January 1st for a sort of competition. Well, at school, I was able to use one of the new Macs to record it with Garage Band. I simply hooked my Vypyr to the line in and recorded it. It did ok, as far as a first time recorder is concerned, but that isn't my problem. Today I went to burn it onto my CD's, but it didn't work or something. I put the CD in, and drug my project onto the CD and burned it there, like our teacher told me. I only had time for two of them, so the teacher told me I should be able to take it home and do the next two by ripping off the songs and reburning them.

So I got home and put the CD in (note that I have a new Dell with Windows 7 instead of a Mac), and tried to open it with Windows Media Player. It says an error occurred opening the file every time I tried it, on both disks. I have no clue how to open it if I can, and I'm not going to waste the time burning it if the judges can't open the file, either.

Any help or suggestions?


Oh yeah, if I can't figure it out today or tomorrow, I should be able to take it to school on Friday to burn the next two, and possibly get some help, but I figured since I don't HAVE to go to school those two days (half day open-campus semester test days, that I'm exempt from), I'll save time getting answers here.

My guess is you burnt it as a data disk. Mac and windows use different file systems. You need to burn it as an audio CD for it to be playable in a cd player or on a computer. If you take the disk back to school and a mac will read it then what i just mentioned is your problem.

Allright, if that is the problem, how would I go about doing this?

I'm pretty sure it was the project file, which, now that I think about it, that's a good reason not to work.
