DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

09/22/03: Audio Ripper

Tech Support Pits:
From Mellie=== Dear Webby I've gotten alot of good tips from you, and for that I thank you. Here's a problem I'm hoping that someone can help me solve. I have several audio files on my hard drive that's too large for the standard 80 minute CD. Is there any way to split those files so that I can put these onto disks? I do have them zipped and backed up, but I'd rather put it on a disk so I can play them in a CD player. Any suggestions?? I'm running xp on my system. Thanks mellie Dear Mellie If those files don't fit onto a CD, then they came from a DVD. There are quite a few programs that will let you put a DVD or parts of one onto regular CD's. Don't buy any of the crap advertised by spammers. There are plenty of those programs available for free, and most likely the spammers are just trying to con you into paying for one of the many free ones. The general term for those programs is "Audio Ripper", even though they work for movies too. Originally they were used to "rip off" the music from Music DVD's and make bootleg copies. The name stuck. PC-World recommends the ones at this page: C-Net has a ton of them listed here: Google has another huge list of them here: I haven't used any of them and can't recommend one over the other, but you sure have a huge offering to chose from. Have FUN! DearWebby
