cut audio CD tracks into smaller pieces

Hi; most minor editing task here, I have audio CDs recorded myself
live, with like 3 or 4 tracks on them with like a dozen songs in each
track, which I would like to transfer to a bunch of wmas, one song per
track. i'm beginning to get the feeling media player doesn't know how
to do this; at least I don't, with media player. any suggestions?
can't afford anything that costs more than free, if other software is
necessary.

If you have a CD or DVD burner, then the software which came with that
burner can probably do this. You're basically looking for an audio
editor.

The free program Audacity (<http://audacity.sourceforge.net> can also
do what you want, but it can't write in WMA format, because that's a
proprietary Microsoft format. However it can write WAV, MP3, etc., which
WMP can play, which you can write to CD, etc., etc..

Thanks, and you too Byte.
I remember in the old days, we used to have these gadgets called tape
recorders, and you could start them when your song "came on" and stop
them afterwards....
