If these files are to be put on Red Book audio CD's (ie ones that standard
CD players can play back) then you are limited to 74 minutes per CD.

As another poster suggested, you could convert the files to MP3 format and
you could put 10-15 hours of very good audio quality, but standard Red Book
CD audio players won't play them.

There are more and more CD players (particularly car and Walkman-type units)
coming onto the market that have the capability of playing both regular CDs
and MP3 CDs, and most DVD players can also read both formats, but the vast
majority of CD players currently out there (at least in the North American
market) can only play Red Book audio CDs.

You need to ask your client what their needs are or who their target market

Hope this helps,
