Hello!
I would like to cut songs short(mp3 files) on my PC, mainly in order to get rid of some really unpleasant song intros. Is there any programme for Windows Vista I could possibly download?
I already have Nero Start Smart, but I can't find out if or how it can help me with what I want, so if it does, I would be grateful if you could let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Well, you could open Windows Movie Maker, shorten the .mp3 as you wish, then save it "as a movie". (In reality it'll be a .wma file.)

Thank you, I'd rather save it as an mp3 file though. Is it possible?

1. download and install audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/)
2. download and install lame_enc.dll (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=install&item=lame-mp3) (this is the mp3 ENCODING library)

to cut a song short, just follow the basics of the guide I made here:
