the command i'm using is below

ffmpeg -ss 00:01:00 -t 00:00:45 -acodec copy -i original.mp3 new_file.mp3

Thanks for any help!!

EDIT: Solution

ffmpeg -ss 00:01:00 -t 00:00:45 -map_meta_data new_track.mp3:original.mp3 -acodec copy -i original.mp3 new_track.mp3

I haven't used it myself, but this option looks like it may do what you want:

-map_meta_data new_file.mp3:original.mp3

You may get a better answer over at This isn't really the right forum for your question.

Great! that worked. Though it didn't copy over the artist name. Strange. Thanks though! – Jeff Oct 20 '09 at 18:15
