| I recently downloaded the Audacity sound editor and it was great but now I
| need to convert my file to mp3 or something so I can burn it to a CD.
Note if you use dedicated burning software like Nero, you should open the
exported WAV or AIFF file from within that software, not drag and drop it from
your file manager, as if you are you are on Windows that always creates a
"data CD" (which will only play on your computer).
If you do only want to play your CD on your computer then you can if preferred
export your Project as an MP3 and then burn it onto an "MP3" or "data" CD. The
MP3 format is much smaller than WAV or AIFF so you will get much more than
the 80 minutes' playing time you get on an audio CD. On the other hand you will
lose a certain amount of audio quality as the price of the smaller filesize.
