Audio NIV Bible--how to handle
scholar - 29-9-2018 at 01:57

My NIVLive audio Bible arrived.

The audio recording features many readers, doing voices of various people in the Bible. If they did a good job, the same person who speaks as Peter's voice in the Gospel passages will also read Peter's letters, etc., but I haven't checked this yet. It has background music and environmental sounds.

The audio files seem to be cda files. They play on "PowerDVD12" which comes on when I put in the CD.

I would like to get it all into MP3 format before I scratch or dirty up anything (I cringe at the way I see CDs and DVDs handled and ruined). I'd like to be able to listen from my desktop hard drive, or perhaps from a thumb drive. I think my 2016 Honda will play music from a thumb drive. How can I get the files converted and copied (or, copied and converted?)

The PowerDVD media player just lists "Track 1" "Track 2" etc. I will want to name the files copies by content (e.g. Matthew 1-4). Or, perhaps someone will tell me there is a way to attach something that will show up on a player display to identify them .

The whole set retails for $124.99, but I paid $14.99 to an outlet that is closing them out.

Buy 2. Keep one unused. 14.99 is nothing at all compared to devoting time to making illegal copies no matter what you call them.

Strictly speaking, Mary is correct. I do think that there may be a loophole in that backup for personal use, but, please do not quote me on that. IIRC Audacity with some add ons is capable of doing what you desire. Google is your friend.

Over here, you're certainly allowed to make one copy, legally, as a backup (Assuming you can find a way around the DRM protection.

dbpoweramp might do what you want, if the thing is, indeed, not DRM protected. The other one I use is FormatFactory. Last I knew, though, that came bundled with some dubious stuff.

I meant Mark 1, Corinthians 11 etc. I just think if you are time poor it’s a false saving.

A program code writer friend of mine, whose income ultimately depends on fair pay for use, taught me that purchased software is like a book. A person can fairly use it on different machines, but only one at a time. So, if I play it from a thumb drive in the car, and no one is in my house playing it off my desktop at the same time--that's OK.

MM, your 10:29 post has me thinking you may be saying that copying the files with content-identifying names is a violation. If the law says that, it seems silly to me, but I don't have knowledge that I have a right to rename files. As the media come, I can only tell what to expect from a set of files by reading the label on the physical CD. I think my car audio system displays artists and titles for regular music.

Leigh and Katzy, I will check the programs you mention.

I used to have NERO, which came free when I installed my own optical disk drives, but I have not bought a new optical drive for many years now.

Leading to another topic--how do I make sure a search engine doesn't lead me to a look-alike site with malware embedded, instead of the real site?

:D;)When you give me the actual link, I have confidence.thankingyou

No sweat! :)

If the files ARE DRM protected, that can certainly be got(ten) around. If I did it, for myself, I'd be OK. But, I suspect that me, copying something for you, might be dubious.

If anyone found out, that is... ;)

If you go to the author's website, you should be fine, You are not looking for illegal content when looking for programs like audacity, vlc or the like, anyway.
