Edit MP3s

I'm wanting to edit some MP3s. Can someone tell me if there is a program for Linux that will do this? Or, a program that will edit other audio files.

Re: Disk Boot Failure

Either your hard drive is dying, or the BIOS is not detecting your hard drive. Check your Bios boot settings. You might try running a live cd also. You can usually hit escape while booting and see any error messages. You might get some relevant errors that way if your hardware is FOOBAR. I've got i...

This morning I had to do a hard restart. When my computer restarted. I got this error message "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter". It's Celena that I've got installed. Is there a way to repair this with the live cd?

Re: Making an ISO of Daryna

In Linux Mint I think you just put the CD in, then it auto-mounts and puts a shortcut onto the desktop. Right click on the shortcut and choose Copy Disk. Then choose copy to file (I am not sure if this is the exact wording as I am thinking of this off the top of my head) and choose where to put the...

just use the copy cd option, check "only create image" ,choose your output path,
then choose start.
instead of burning a cd it will create an iso image.
Thanks deadguy. That done it for me.
