Re: im a bit new to this...

what do you mean "upload files to burn to cd"? did you download a torrent and are now wanting to burn the lossless files [flac, shn, etc] to a listenable CDR? or are you wanting to take a show you have and upload it to the tracker as a new torrent?

you actually need to decompress it from the lossless files [either flac or shn i'm guessing] to wav files...you can then burn those wavs to a llistenable CDR

if you are on a PC, download Trader's Little Helper...once installed, click the "Decode" tab, drag all your flac/shn files to the window, and click decode

if yer on a Mac, download xACT , and install...click the "Decode" tab, select either wav or aiff, drag all your flac/shn files to the window, and click decode

Re: im a bit new to this...

Hey TIL! (I assume you have PC, forgive me if I am wrong). Usually, I listen to uncompressed WAV files (see AAR.oner's suggestion for TLH), but...

If you are into checking out those flac files that are so common, you can also grab a program called Winamp to let you playback on your PC. BASIC is free and it works just dandy. It is for those times when you might want to just listen on your PC. Here is the link!
