  decoratorman 15:31 22 May 2003

I use m.player 9 in XP for downloading and burning. I have downloaded some MP3 Files and want to convert them to WAV files.
I know that I should have done this when I saved them to the hard disk when downloading....... er! that is if you can ???
Can I convert them in media player or am I out of look, I have the proramme for Nero Burning Rom 5.1
but again I can't find out how to do it.
Any help out there please ,

Are you trying to convert them so you can put them on cd? Nero will automatically convert them to cd audio if this what you mean.

Nero can also convert mp3 to wav without burning, in Nero 5.5 this is on the Extras menu, in File Encoding

Why do you want them as WAV files? - MP3's are better quality all round?

I don't think you can go backwards to WAV can you? Anyway if I'm wrong and you know what you're on about, ignore me look for a program called wav to MP3 converter it should do it.

cd-audio files are not wav files

thanks so far but maybe its me being thick.
I thought that I would have to convert the MP3 files to a WAV file so that when I burn them onto a CD I could play them on any CD player. I can't play the mp3 files even if I burn them onto a CD disk . or can I

if you burn the mp3s as an audio cd it should play in almost any player,you don't need to convert them to wavs first.

If you burn them as files onto a data cd, you would need an mp3-cd player (like this click here )to listen them.

BigMoFoT: you can convert mp3s to wav, I've done it using Nero.
