    Hi, I have a 109MB mps file that is approx 2hrs worth of music. My question is, how can i can compress this to then burn on to a blank cd that has 80 mins worth of space? Many thanks, Robin

    You can't. MP3s are already maximally compressed.

    Do you want the file as data (backup), to play on your Mac, or play on a stereo system?

    Some applications will burn your music to a dvd playable on a system designed to play .aifc or .aiff files (like a standard CD) from a dvd. The process is complex and take a long time, so do your research.

    Alternatively, split your 120 mins of music into two (~) 60 minute segments, using an audio editor and then record the two to CDs.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
