File formats and burning to CD  
I've been asked, and I don't know the answer, so I figured I'd ask you. Summarizing from chat, here.
Working on burning CDs to free up disk space. Three basic problems:

1. Nero (6.x) didn't recognize the .flac file extension, but he found a plug-in to resolve that

2. One audio file that plays just fine (through winamp) from the downloaded file, but each time he's tried to burn it, the last half of the track comes up pure silence; and

3. Nero doesn't recognize the mp2 file format. Winamp plays them just fine; he just can't burn them to CD.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Use Audacity or some other editor to convert to a uniform file format before burning.

Or, just burn the files as a *data* CD. Sure, he'll have to put the CD into the computer to play them, but they'll play just as well as they do now.
