Hello, I'm very new (well I'm not new 65years old)to all this hi tech stuff, and surprise surprise I'm looking for some help.
Can you help me in converting wav audio files to mp3 files so that I can use them in my slideshow.would appreciate an idiot's guide as your suggestion. (Bye the way the slideshow is looking quite good - not brilliant but quite good)

Audacity is a great piece of software - no PC should be without it.
May also want to take a look at WM Converter - will do video and audio lots of formats click here
