i am working on splitting .wav files with bitrate 13 kbps,mono,
sample rate 8 khz and audio format GSM 6.10.my code is like this

 private void SplitFile(string FileInputPath, string FolderOutputPath, int OutputFiles)

            string inputFile = FileInputPath; // Substitute this with your Input File 
            FileStream fs = new FileStream(inputFile, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
            int numberOfFiles = Convert.ToInt32(OutputFiles);
            int sizeOfEachFile = (int)Math.Ceiling((double)fs.Length / numberOfFiles);

            for (int i = 1; i <= numberOfFiles; i++)
                string baseFileName = Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(inputFile);
                string extension = Path.GetExtension(inputFile);
                FileStream outputFile = new FileStream(Path.GetDirectoryName(inputFile) + "\\" + baseFileName + "." + i.ToString().PadLeft(5, Convert.ToChar("0")) + "." + extension, FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write);
                int bytesRead = 0;
                byte[] buffer = new byte[sizeOfEachFile];

                if ((bytesRead = fs.Read(buffer, 0, sizeOfEachFile)) > 0)
                    outputFile.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);

using this code the second splitting file is not playing and giving error like Codec data corrupted error.

probably because wav files have a header - to tell them the speed, etc

Actually the .wav file have some properties like Audio formate-gsm 6.10,Audio sample rate 8KHz ,channels 1 mono,Bit Rate 13 kbps. so using this we have to split
plz tel me the request i will post

exactly - do a google on wav file headers.

Hi LiZR,

Give me ur gmailid i will send u the audio file which i have to split and now i am searching abt file headers


No, Im not giving anyone contact info - nor am I likely to be writing your code for you. I have my own coding to do.

Hi LizR,
