I have downloaded some mp3 files from the net and I now want to convert them to wav.I have downloaded CDex,but I think this freeware is just for ripping.Is there any freeware out there that will let me convert mp3 to wav?

Theres a program called Audiocatalyst, this is what I use, does cd-mp3, mp3-wav etc,etc, can rip a cd to mp3 in about 5 mins, adaptec 5 I believe can go straight from mp3 to cd if this is what you need.

Next time you wave - use all your fingers

You're having trouble with CDex turning MP3s into WAVs? That's odd, because I've always had it work before.

Well, I assume because you're turning these MP3s into WAVs you want to make a CD, so head over to this site:

You can burn MP3s directly onto a CD. It does all the converting for you so you don't have to worry about it much, and you can listen to the CDs normally in any CD-ROM drive.

If you have winamp, the easiest way is to use the "diskwriter" or something like that as the output method instead of the waveout or directsound. When you play a track, instead of actually playing the track, winamp will save it to your harddisk as a wave file.

Most CD burning software will also let you convert to WAV. I use MusicMatch myself for this purpose.

AudioCatalyst is awesome. I did 6 CDs in around 10 minutes with that.

Nero can also go straight from MP3 to CD. Way better software than EZ CD Creator.

Whoever thinks up a good sig for me gets a prize :wink:

there are heaps of third party apps that can do that.

Winamp can even do that, if you go to the settings and choose the output to be file_out.dll (or something like that)

for my ricoh 12x10x32x ive found i dont even need them as the burning program Nero 5.0 does it automatically.
i just sellect the mp3 files, check the space they will take up, then burn.
nero converts to cd format automatically.

Letting your CD Recorder Software Decode the MP3's on the fly is not such a good idea. Some mp3's play perfectly fine but they may have defects that prevent them from being decoded that easily. If that happens while decoding on the fly at burn time, you'll have your self a brand new coaster.

Umm...that was three months ago. Hopefully his question is already answered. No offense.

I use a freeware program for ripping cda's into wav's.
This same program, if you have a dll, can then convert the wavs to mp3's.

I have found that it also works to convert mp3 to wav.

The program is called Exact Audio Copy.
But like I said, you will need to find a dll or other application to convert to mp3.
