Converting sound files

Q: Converting sound files

OK...I thought I would try this again since I am STILL stumped!

Is there a way I can burn files that are of real audio format?! I also have some that are in .au :( I need to get these on a CD in a format that is playable by a normal cd player!

Please help! I am desperate! :(

Preferred Solution: Converting sound files

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 sound files

I found a program that might be what you want...

I know for a fact that it converts .ra files to .wav, but I'm not sure about the .au files.

It is at http://www.remixer.com/downloads.htm

edit: it is under the 'featured files' section

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

I would like to send home videos on DVD to my father-in-law in China.

Copies of DVDs I burn do not play in China. I believe DVDs are region specific.

My father-in-law has a PC so I was wondering if there is anyway I could convert a DVD that would run on my player into Windows Media Video format (.wmv)?

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

My laptop has been crashing on an off for ages and I made the stupid mistake of restoring it to its factory settings!!!  My outlook folders have all been erased but I have back up versions on my back up drive.  These files have a DBX extension.  Does anyone know how I can open these and convert them back into Outlook files EML or PST - not really sure???   I would like to be able to restore all the information and put these folders back into Outlook - is this possible?

A:Converting DBX files to readable Outlook Files

DBX files are created and used by Outlook Express - not Outlook.
You can set up Outlook Express and copy these files back to the location where it keeps its data files (that location depends on the version of Windows and Outlook Express you're using).

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

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!!
 

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.

Are there any programs that any one can refer me to in order to do this? I've been searching on google, and all I've been finding is changing the file extension path, for macs only. However, I am running Windows XP Home Edition on my PC, and I wish to use Mac OS X Software on my computer by converting the dmg extensions to .iso. If anyone knows how to do this, please notify me.

A:Converting .dmg (Mac) files to .iso (Windows) files.

Even if you were able to conver the files you wouldn't be able to install the Mac software on your PC because the machines are so different. Only way that a program can be installed on both is if it is specifically written for both. If that were the case you usually have two CD's in the box on for Windows one for Mac.

I know that Excel 2000 and 2003 will let you open text files (.txt filename extension). Each line of text becomes one row. Excel will then let you decide how to break up the lines into columns. If the data is separated by tabs or commas, you can use them as the column delimiters. If all of the columns are created using blank spaces, you can have Excel break the columns at certain character positions.

I occasionally download files that need to be converted from rar to mp3. I use a program called "extract frog" which works perfectly except if the file is broken into separate parts. When it is in separate parts it seems to only be willing to extract the fist part. Any suggestions?
 

A:Converting rar files

You can use 7-Zip to decompress RAR files. First, download and install the program. Then, in 7-Zip, go to "Tools --> Options" and tick "7z", "RAR" and "ZIP" in the "associate 7-Zip with:" window. Click OK to apply the file associations. Now right click the RAR file you want to decompress. Select "7-Zip --> Extract to <file name>" to decompress the RAR file into a separate folder. If this method does not work, then double-click the RAR file and extract the files manually.

If you want to use another file compression tool instead of 7-Zip, then read this article for more information. If you want to learn more about RAR files, then read this article instead.
