Frequently Asked Questions


Q01: Do you produce a version of MP3 Audio Editor for the Mac?

A: No. We do not develop Macintosh software at this time. Unfortunately, as we are not familiar with the Macintosh software market, we do not know of a similar solution to recommend for the Mac platform.

Q02: There is a file that I can use MP3 Audio Editor to play it, but it is not working when I try to edit it. What could be the problem?

A: This is usually caused by the file's audio content using a codec that is not supported by the conversion module. Even though it plays properly in MP3 Audio Editor, the playback engine's supported codecs are different from that of the conversion module. You should ensure you're running the latest version of MP3 Audio Editor, if you're experiencing this problem, because we are always adding support for additional codecs as the software is updated.

Q05: Can I remove the voice from a sound track, completely?

A: No, you cannot fully remove the voice from a track. Any program that promises to remove voices completely from a sound track will also remove any sound near the voice in the stereo spectrum.

Q06: Is it legal to download the online FLV video to my PC?

A: Yes, it is legal. When you watch an online FLV video in flash from a website (like YouTube.com), the video will be automatically downloaded to the "Temporary Internet Files" folder of your hard disk. That means that the file is saved on your computer while you watch the video and there remains until you delete it. Our application does the same thing and it allows you to choose the download folder. However, the downloaded FLV files should be for individual use only. We suggest you not to convert any authorized material.

Q07: Can I input audio files of different formats into the audio file merger without turning them into a certain format?

A: You don't have to convert the source files into a certain format. The audio file merger allows converting audio files of multiple formats at a time directly.

Q08: Can all CD-ROM drives convert CD to WAV, MP3, or WMA?

A: Although most current CD-ROM drives can convert digitally, only CD-ROM drives that support the Redbook audio format and have a reasonable level of seeking accuracy can convert tracks from CDs to disk in digital format. Many older CD-ROM drives and some new ones do not support this capability.

Q09: Why did I fail to extract and encode MP3 from Audio CD?

A: This may be caused by several reasons, like:

1) Your CD-ROM doesn't support audio data extraction. In this case, Magic Burning Toolbox can't work at present. You can try other applications which support analog access method if you can play your CD with the sound card. The default CD-ROM type was set incorrect and doesn't accord with your CD-ROM;

2) Some sectors of your CD were damaged. In order to keep perfect quality copies of the original music, Magic Burning Toolbox will stop extracting when meet error sectors and tried several times. You can clean your CD and try again.

Q10: What is VIDEO_TS?

A: VIDEO_TS, short for video transport stream, is one folder of most video DVDs. When you insert a video DVD into your computer, you can open the DVD and view the contents just like a folder on your hard drive. Most video DVDs have two folders in the root directory - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. The VIDEO_TS folder contains all the DVD's video data and playback information, including .VOB (video object) files, .IFO (information) files and .BUP (backup) files.

Q11: How do I create VIDEO_TS folder for video DVD burning?

Q13: What's the difference between CDDB and CD-Text?

A: CDDB, short for Compact Disc Database, is a licensed trademark of Gracenote, Inc. It is a database for software applications to look up audio CD (compact disc) information over the Internet. This is performed by a client who calculates a (nearly) unique disc ID and then queries the database. As a result, the client is able to display the artist name, CD title, track list and some additional information.

Q14: I just want to backup my DVD on my PC. What is the best choice of the output format for me to choose? I just want to play it on my PC and I would like to get the smallest size with better quality.

Q16: How long will it take to copy a DVD movie?

A: It is hard to answer it generally. The time depends on many elements such as the speed of the CPU, the drive ability, duration of the movie, output quality, the DVD disc itself and so on. Goodisc Movie DVD Copy shows an estimated "Time Remaining" when the conversion is processed.

Q17: The size of the output video is too large, why and how can I get it smaller?

A: The size of the output video is decided by the quality of it. If you want to get it smaller, please decrease the quality by selecting a preset with lower parameters such as Video Bitrate, Audio Bitrate, Sample Rate, etc. And of course, the shorter the time duration, the smaller the file size is.
