Converting a sound file

Q: Converting a sound file

Hiya!! Bet you've been glad to not hear from me for awhile. Guess this means you taught me well!! I used to have a .wav file on my site, but lost it during some down time. The only way that I can retrieve it now is through Real Player, but I can only use .wav or .mid for sound at my host. Is there a way to convert this file? Thanks in advance!!

Preferred Solution: Converting a sound file

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Converting a sound file

There is a program out there that will convert Real Audio to wave files. It think it is called Ra2Wav, but I might be mistaken. Check the real audio site for it, or search for it at http://www.hotfiles.com

You can also use Sound Recorder to record the R.A. file while it is playing. If you have an SB Live card you can use Wave Studio.

Daemon Tools Lite should be able to mount NRG files. Make sure you are using the latest version:

You might also want to try these other virtual drive, image mounting software (both freeware):

Hi my Canon camera produces movies as MOV files & my dvd player plays DIVX video files with extension avi or divx is there a good free program for converting these? or others in the future?

Appreciate any help

If you convert the movies to full DVD format (VOB's, etc), you can watch them on any DVD player. DVD Flick can handle Quicktime, which is MOV, hopefully the same MOV as the Canon. http://www.dvdflick.net/index.php

When i convert a (Bitrate - 320kbps, Channel - 1(mono), Audio Sample Rate - 44 kHz) 9.0 9mb mp3 file to a stero file using rip edit burn, I get a (Bitrate - 56kbps, Channels - 2(stereo) and Audio Sample Rate - 22 kHz) 1.59 mb mp3 file.
During conversion the converter shows the following message:

The currently selected mp3 encoder and bitrate does not provide optimum quality for music files. To get a better quality mp3 please use a different mp3 converter.

Available codecs - Windows ACM Default
Bit rate ( kbit) - 56

What needs to be done to achive a better quality stero file.

A:Converting a mono mp3 file to a stereo mp3 file.

Well, you can't really convert a mono source to stereo, think about it.

Have a 6K .clp file which I can't open, Can .clp files be converted to Word2000 format? If not, what can I read it with?

A:Converting a .clp file to a Word 2000 .doc file?

Well, it appears that it could be one of the following file types:

You searched for file extension: .clp

Clipart GraphicProgram: QUATTRO PRO
Clipboard fileProgram: MS WINDOWS
Compiler Script (Clip List)Program: CLIPPER 5

So that depends.

You can always try, from Word, File-Open. Change the files of type to "recover text from any file" and try opening the file.

Don't forget to change the file types back to Word docs after you've used that file type or you'll forget and be in trouble next time you open a file.

I am trying to digitalise some VHS tapes and although the picture transfers well, there is no sound. The problem is not in the VCR as this works perfectly when connected to a TV set. I feed the signal from the VCR to the PC using a Scart to 3x RCA cable at the VCR end and a purple breakout cable, supplied with an ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9200 , connected to the graphics card VidIn socket. The VidOut socket of this card is linked to a Creative SB Audigy card LineIn socket using another supplied ATI cable. The output is viewed onscreen using Ulead VideoStudio v.11. The pictures appear perfectly and can be recorded for further editing but there is no accompanying sound despite the fact that the Ulead thumbnail in the edit line shows a small white loudspeaker, If the audio is split out, the line is smooth without oscillations. I have tried a direct connection between the audio out sockets of the VCR and the breakout cable in case there was a fault in the Scart cable but without success.I have also tried taking a line direct from the VCR audio output to the sound card LineIn socket and still didn't get any sound from my speakers or see any audio via Ulead
The PC sound system works satisfactorily in all other respects. Am I missing something somewhere, for example a software setting ?

A:No sound when converting VHS

The best way to capture analogue video under any operating system is with a firewire analogue video adapter such as Canopus ADVC 110. This supposedly gives much better picture quality than most of the PCI capture cards but these adapters are still quite expensive at the time of writing. If you plan to do a lot of analogue video capture then it may well be worth the extra cost. Under linux you could then just use dvgrab to capture from one of these but I'm not covering that method here.

The first step, of course, is to connect your VCR to your PC. Most TV capture cards have three types of video input: s-video, composite (the yellow one) and TV aerial. s-video gives the best quality of the three so use that if you can. I have an Avermedia TV Capture 98 PCI capture card which is based on the bt878 chipset. The picture I get with this card is quite grainy and I hear that the saa713x chipset capture cards are supposed to be much better- see the v4l2 wiki link above for card recommendations and compatibility. Another thing about this card is that I couldn't get it to find my VCR signal through the aerial connector and so I had to use a SCART to composite cable.

After plugging your VCR into your PC (including running an auxiliary cable from your VCRs sound outputs to your PCs mic in) insert a VHS tape, push play and start tvtime to check you are getting a picture and sound. If you are trying to get a picture through an aerial cable then you will probably have to scan t... Read more

H there,

I'm having problems with no audio, or an annoying buzzing sound when I'm converting AVI files to dvd format. before converting everything is fine. But strangely some files will convert ok. Never had this problem before and I'm very confused. I believe its a codec problem maybe but I'm not very good with computers so any help will be great.

A:No Sound When Converting Avi Files

Is this a general problem or a single file problem? First start off with downloading : 1) KC Softwares Video Inspector2) GSpot Codec Information Applianceand render that file. It will tell you whether it is corrupt yes or no. Secondly :1) Which program do you use to convert and burn2) Which codec(pack?) you have on board

These are the instructions handed to me:

1. Download VCF-to-23andMe. The two scripts in this directory require Python 3.

2. First, run the data_to_db.py script using your VCF file as input. This generates the genome.db file:

> python3 data_to_db.py input.vcf.gz vcf genome.db

3. Then run db_to_23.py script using the genome.db file as input. This produces a file in the 23andMe format:

> python3 db_to_23.py genome.db blank_v3.txt 23andMe.txt

So, I go on command prompt and tried copy pasting the 1st command and I got a genome.db file but when I copy paste the 2nd command line (the one involving db_to_23.py) nothing happens. Youre supposed to start off with a vcf file and 2 python scripts to convert it. Im not sure how to do this.

All I have are a VCF file and 2 python scripts. If someone could describe the process from a fresh start to how I would convert it to 23andMe then that would be helpful.

Just a technical maneuvering issue.

I have spent untold hours (months) putting it together to perfection. Now I want to burn it to a DVD, and find out that it's an .ink file, and that it's not compatible for that type of media.
(I'm not sure what it's point is then?) Anyway, my classmates are getting ready to burn my house down, waiting for their DVD. A friend told me to download a free program called ConvertXtoDVD, but I don't see .ink as one of the conversion options. Any suggestions?

What format will give me the best quality dvd video when converting an .avi file?

A:converting .avi file

For video to play on most standalone DVD players it has to be converted to mpeg2 and authored, specs are here: http://www.videohelp.com/dvd The exception to this is that some DVD players will play Divx encoded discs or mpeg's burned as data discs. That really depends on the player.

Final quality depends on many things like your source, the process you use, the encoder.... Lot's of variables. There is no best method, you have to take into account what you have and where you're going with it.

Hello Techguy Forum,

I am hoping someone here can help me. Here is my situation.

My Chinese wife has a neat little audio device that she was given that lets her listen to Chinese preaching in her own language. The device has literally hundreds if not thousands of files on an SD card. I opened it up and tried to extract the files hoping that they were in .mp3 format hoping she could put these audio files in her own mp3 player as the device has a horrible interface and no way of knowing what file is being played besides going one-by-one.

But the files ended up being .jrc. I've never heard of this kind of file and have searched and searched but have found very little on this and nothing about .jrc as an audio file.

Is there anyone who knows anything about this or how to go about converting such a file into an mp3?

==> I tried to upload one of the files that I copied of the SD card to practice on but I got an 'upload error'. It may be too big of a file.

Any suggestions?

Thank you so much.

Okay, so I want to rip a DVD onto my computer, and then convert it into MPEG-4, so I can put it on my PSP. I want to do this without spending any money on programs.

I'm new to DVD ripping, so I really don't know what to do here.

I have DVD Shrink 3.2, and I can rip the DVD onto my computer, either as a single .ISO file, or as several files, including .VOBs and . IFOs.

The problem is that I can't find a program that will convert the .ISO file, or the .IFO files. No program I have tried reconizes these file types.

So really what I need is one of two things. Either a DVD ripping program that will rip the DVD to my computer directly into a .AVI, etc. (anything that converters will reconize), or a converting program that will reconize .ISOs, .IFOs, etc.

I would appreicate any help.
