I am trying to use Audio Editor, but it is not working properly. What could be the problem?

Audio Editor instability is caused by insufficient system resources. Audio Editor uses many system resources because it must load the uncompressed data from audio files at once for processing. Although, on most systems, 128 MB of RAM should be sufficient, depending on other hardware in the system, 256 MB might produce much better results.
I have no sound output, except from your Audio Recorder. Why is this?

The Sound Recorder automatically make sure that the volume is set correctly when it starts, but other programs most times don't do this automatically.
If you don't hear any sound when the Recorder is not running, then you can manually control the sound channels on your system with the Windows volume controls.
To show the Windows volume controls, double click on the little speaker icon in the task bar of Windows (near the clock) and make sure that the volume slider for the Wave channel is not set too low or even muted.
Why is the disk full so quickly when I use Audio Recorder?

Sound files are very large files. Specially sound files that are suitable for making an audio CD take a lot of disk space, because they contain the information for two-channel (stereo) sound with a frequency of 44.1 kHz.
For each second of digital sound, you need approximately 172 Kb of free disk space. That is approximately 10 megabyte for each minute.
Please note that the actual amount of required disk space depends on the selected recording quality.
As soon as you have recorded the sound files on an audio CD, you can of course remove the files from disk again.
Why is the amount of available disk space not decreasing after I recorded something?

A new recording is always stored on the hard disk as a temporary file.
While recording, the amount of available disk space on the disk that is used to store the temporary file will decrease.
This is indicated in the Sound Recorder window, as the time that the new recording can last before the disk will be full.
After recording, when you save the new recording to another disk with the Sound Editor, the used space will be released on the disk that was used to store the temporary recording file and this space will then be reused for the next recording.
I am using CD Burner. Has it limit the quantity of files when adding files?

This software hasn’t limited the quantity, but the total duration of all listed files can not exceed 80min. Therefore, you should pay attention to this point when adding files.
I can rip, but it seems to rip very slowly.

Try checking the "On Error" jitter correction in the "CD Options" page. This mode is faster than the "Always" setting, and should produce results comparable to "Always".
