well all right, except for that. although i suppose you could view it from the alternate perspective of his brilliantly preventing himself from drowning, at the small price of a snapped humerus, and then neatly avoiding the loss of the use of his arm. (tch, don't spoil it for me !)

I wouldn't dream of it. Your logic is too brilliant in itself.

Cheers,
Marc (who has, therefore, been "brilliant" twice in his life)

Even if it were, I wouldn't want to do it manually, by the time you chop up 10 hours of stuff into 3 minute segments, you'll have made 200 individual cuts. (shudder)

MP3 DirectCut lets you choose (I use it to top and tail radio progs for example); or you can automatically slice an mp3 into particular length segments.

I imagine MP3 Splitter has similar functionality; but I've not used it personally.

Yes, I too use MP3DirectCut (also freeware) for manually editing MP3 - removing unwanted material from the start of end of a recording. MP3Splitter is a much simpler tool which comes in handy when you have a long file and you simply want to quickly split it into 5 minute chunks, for example.

If it's any help, the method for splitting a file in MP3 DirectCut is:

Open file
Edit / Select All
Special /Auto Cue - set time increment (e.g. 5 minutes)
File / Save Split - choose folder and naming method for the mp3 chunks

I tried both MP3Splitter and MP3 DirectCut. I found that MP3 DirectCut seemed to give me cleaner files -- MP3Splitter left some minor "skipping" artifacts for some reason.

Three minute files seem to work well for my Sansa Express, and the transitions from file to file are mostly unnoticeable. I also figured out how to get the Sansa's playlist function to work for me (not the most intuitive process, I'm afraid), so it will actually play the book files in the order I specify rather than shuffled (that was a pain).

The bottom line is, it looks like you two have put me onto a method that will, indeed, work for me for non-Audible.com audio books. Thanks!

Yeah Jim Dale's narration has imprinted on my audial memory, so I literally can't read the Harry Potter books without thinking of that guy's voice.
