Hi guys,
I've just downloaded the below torrent\music boot file. The files \ tracks apperar to be 'Compressed Audio STN Shorten files? I've never heard of these and always just seen FLAC files which I burn using software called Burrrn .
Just wondered how you guys burn these files\ boots to CD?
Thanks, Danny.

I use Trader's Little Helper to decode SHN files. You won't need to do anything with the SKT files from that torrent. You should be able to download it here:

They are known as SHN files. Burrrn should be able to handle them no problem

Thanks guys. Maiden have you ever burned these files using Burrrn? When I drag the files all the tracks read 59 secs. I then goto burn it and it gives me an error halfway through yet 5 tracks do actually play in the CD player and it crashes after 5. Very strange. :lol
Just burnt the CD using Nero and all is well but would rather not use nero.
Homebrew I will try that program .
Thanks.

Why would you rather not use Nero, when it works? :disbelief

Was thinking it might not burn as good a quality as a more 'dedicated' program? Guess I'm barking up the wrong tree? :hmm:
