How can I cut an audio file in half?

I have a song (windows media file), and it is two songs on one file. There is a one minute blank space between the two songs. Instead of them both being on one 'track', I want them on seperate tracks...what Can I do?

Is there a free software program that I can use to cut them in half?

Or, can I send it to someone and have them do it?

I appreciate it
Shawn

If you encode it to MP3 I have a great self-executable mp3 trimming program that would do the trick.

One thing that you could do is convert the mp3 to wav. Then open the wav file with the Sound Recorder. Go to the end of the first song and then go to "Edit" "Delete after current position". Save the file under the first songs name. Open the original file again and go to the start of the second song and then go to "Edit" "Delete before current position". Save the file under the second songs name. Convert them back to mp3 and you are good to go. CDex is a small free program you can use to convert the mp3 to wav and back again.

There is a problem with this approach - loss of audio quality. MP3 is a "lossy" compression method and each time you uncompress and recompress a sound file it will sound worse.
