Recently i tried importing a 25 hour and a 27 hour long audio file into premiere pro but an error popped up saying "ERROR CONFORMING FILE ( .CFA or something that i don't remember) " 

So, what do i do?

Not sure how a timeline would look if you added a 25hr clip as the timcode numbers only go to 24hr.

Premiere does have a 24 hour timeline limit, so that might apply to footage too. What are you trying to do with these super lengthy audio files? If you're only working with audio, have you tried importing them into Audition instead?

Its an audiobook.

how to remove that 24 hour time limit?

if i edit any of the footage, i loose quality, besides i can't edit footages longer than 24 hours in other software too like vlc ( convert) 

i can't quite understand why software are not flexible with this time limit.

If there was a way to remove the limit then there wouldn't be one in the first place. I can't give you a technical answer for why there's a limit, but I'm sure there's a good reason; maybe it has to do with code and exceeding the length of a day (calculating time on a computer is not as simple as you might think: http://www.csl.sri.com/users/neumann/cal.html)

 

You say it's an audiobook, but you also mention footage. Is there a visual component here? And especially if this is an audiobook, have you tried importing it into Audition, a dedicated audio editor?
