Hey,

Im looking for a program that can remove/copy a part of a song.

I'd like to get a certain song as "ringtone" for my mobile - but the
introduction of the song isn't very good - and I'd therefor like to
remove the first 30 seconds or copy the remaining song.

Does any of you know any usefull programs? I've searched the web without
luck, and it's not possible with Real Player, quick time or media player.

You need an audio editor -- not just a player. A decent free option (for Mac or PC) is Audacity.

I used nero wave editor to both record and edit. But I am not sure if it can edit other than .wav files.

"GoldWave" is the most preferred audio editor. Moreover it's free.

Thanks for the advices everyone.

I installed Audacity, and it's was just what I had been looking for.

As a side note: When you've removed the unwanted part of the song, you
have to save the song as a new mp3 file. In order to save it as a mp3
you need to have a dll file called lame_enc.dll, which can be
found at www.dll-files.com (atleast that's where I got mine from).
