Do you mean CDs of professional guitarists? In that case I don't think you are allowed to post them on this forum.

If those CDs are recordings of you playing works that are in the public domain, then you can convert them in OGG or MP3 and post them as attachments to your message. If they exceed the limit of 2 Mb then you should contact the administrator who will make them available through another means.

OGG and MP3 are compression programmes that drastically reduce the size of a recording. You wouldn't dream of posting a WAV file on a forum, it is much too heavy.

To convert WAV to MP3 (and other formats, including OGG) I use dBpowerAMP Music Converter (freeware). I suppose other programmes are available for free, but that one is very convenient.

Please bear in mind that you can only post your own recordings here.

Good luck!
