News: Merge Audio Files

My mp3 player is really crappy so it sometimes doesn't recognize books I rip, so if you want to play it in order you have to rename all the files. To make this easier, I merge each disc into one file. It's also great for other purposes. This program is free and works well! Merge MP3.

Never do anything illegal unless you don't mind facing the consequences!
