This is a multi-part process:

1. Copy the song off the CD onto your computer. (It's called "ripping" the song.) On the PC, use Windows Media Player (FREE) and set the options to save ripped tracks as WAV format.
2. Open the WAV in a sound editor, like Audacity (FREE).
3. Use Audacity to edit the song down to what you need.
4. Save the edited track as a WAV file.
5. Repeat this for the other tracks you need.
6. Burn the group of WAV files to a blank audio CD. Use Imgburn (FREE).

- Windows Media Player is available from Microsoft as part of Windows XP and Vista; update it to the latest version by running Microsoft Update.
- Audacity is open source software and free. Download it at:
- Imgburn is freeware. Download it at:

This will get you started. You still need to learn how to use each of these applications, but the only really tough part will be learning to edit the music tracks yourself in Audacity. People here should be able to help you.

Thanks to everyone who helped. I guess I'm going to try something here. The sound card on this computer doesn't work. I don't know why, since it worked before it was fixed. I'm going to try and make a CD and see what happens.
