    Hi all
    I have an hour long MP3 file (Fighting Talk off R5live , fancied some inane banter for a change) .Any how , I really only use my player for walking to work , its only 20mins. So ,as my player will not allow me to FFWD as such , only skip whole files ,I've yet to hear the last 40 minutes of the show :D .
    Is it possible for me to split the file into 3 or 4 smaller files
    Cheers
    John :thumbsup:

    Try using CDEX as I think there is an option to split the track up on there, if that gives you no luck then try atomix mp3 as I use this regular to split tracks and mix tracks.

    Think CDEX is only a beta version and atomix mp3 is a trial version but they are fully usable, just use google to find the sites that are offering the downloads for free

    A couple of options to consider, both free:

    Audacity http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
    A cracking audio editor, pretty easy to use.

    MP3DirectCut www.mpesch3.de
    Not very friendly to use, but persevere and read the help. The *big* plus with this is that it doesn't re-encode the MP3 every time you save the file, so no loss of quality.

    So for me, Audacity is the general purpose tool of choice for editing/manipulating audio files, with MP3DirectCut for simple cropping/splitting.
