Hi, Denise, yes. You can use this video converter to extract music from AVCHD files to MP3 first, and then burn it to CD. Best regards,
Denise

Hi Christine_Smith, this did not work for me to get around the 99 frame problem. We have many short clips of family/kids etc and my 99 frames is only 24 minutes. Obviously the DVD can hold much more than that. I tried making each \"title\" a different day of the month and as soon as I get to 99 files it won\'t let me add any more. Any other suggestions? Thank you!

Hi, Falcon857, generally, this program works 3X faster than other similar products hit on the market. For one hour video burning to DVD, it normally takes about an hour. Also, the burning speed depends highly on your computer configuration and file size. You can download it and try it out for yourself. Best regards,
