Q: .SND conversion to ???

Viewing an old thread from "landj9697,Ancient parts in newer machine" caught my eye.I have this exact system.Now I'm trying to find software to convert the audio files (.snd) to .wav or .mp3.Tried a few freebies with no success,even when they claim to support this conversion. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Preferred Solution: .SND conversion to ???

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.)


At first, I don't need to recover my data, I just want my drive back to re-use it.
How can a format my usb drive including all boot sectors which sees to be locked/write-protected by bitlocker?

My problem starts with decrypting my drive by deactivting bitlocker on it by entering the valid password/recovery key. At 36% of decryption the process halts without reason. Now, I'm unable to access my drive or resume the process.

I tried...
    ...to format with windows
   ..remove with diskmgmt
   ... remove with diskpart
   ... repair-bde
   ... manage-bde
   ... ubuntu live cd
   ... mass production tool software, to override the whole stick

nothing worked. The only thing which worked was once the software M3 Bitlocker recovery Free, but just one time to access the locked partition. But, as mentioned I don't need to recover my data. With that tool I'm not able to wipe the drive.

That Bitlocker protects my data till the end is good, but that it breaks my data and my hardware in such a case is not fair.
How can I break the write-protection mode to finally wipe the hard drive?

Hi guys. Can anyone point me to where I can find a method to convert from a C++ CTime object to a SQL DATETIME field and back in C++ ado.net managed code? I've dredged everywhere for almost a full day and can find nothing on it.

Unfortunately the help offered for many areas of C++ by M$ is becoming painfully thin and new processes to me seem to be becoming harder to find out about.


A:Solved: Conversion between C++ CTime to SQL DATETIME conversion

It's ok now, I solved it myself. It turned out to be remarkably easy (once you know). CString is recognised intrinsically.

CString myString;
System::String^ strS = gcnew System::String(myString);

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor, 2 GB RAM and Windows XP/Pro SP 2, InDesign CS3 (v. 5.0.1), and Word 2002 SP 3.

Problem description:

a) I have tried converting InDesign documents and Word documents with long hyperlinks to PDF. I have documents with some hyperlinks that are very long and require more than one line. The hyperlinks that I create in InDesign or Word that require more than one line look OK after conversion to PDF (using the Export command in InDesign), but, if I hover the mouse over the link in the PDF, all the characters in the URL on the second line are missing, and the link doesn’t work. I first discovered this using Acrobat Professional 7. Yesterday I downloaded a trial version of Acrobat Professional 8 (8.1.0), and I still have the problem.

Yes, I know I can create a hyperlink character style in InDesign with the “no break” feature enabled. However, that can result in appearance and text flow problems.

b) Furthermore, I tried to convert a Word document with a long hyperlink to PDF (using the Word Print command), and the same problem occurs.

To make matters worse, when I try to convert any Word document to PDF using the “Adobe PDF/Convert to Adobe PDF” menu item, I get this message:

“The Acrobat PDFMaker server could not be loaded. Do you want to run the installer in repair mode?”

I tried the repair mode. Then I tried it again from the Add/Remove Programs option in Control Panel. That did not solve either problem. R... Read more

I'm thinking about order a couple of these volume regulators:


After talking with a sale rep on the phone, I learned that this interfaces via an RCA cable, but the sound cards on my rigs only have 3.5mm connectors. I'm wondering if there is any reason that the normal operation of the regulators would be effected in any manner, if a converter was used at these sound card? The connection at the speakers are already RCA, so that shouldn't be a problem.

A:RCA to 3.5mm Conversion

None what so ever. The signal will remain the same, the only difference will be the connection.

Go to radio shack and by the second cheapest mini-plug(1/8) to RCA coverter they have.

I purchased my laptop in the UK (new so I thought) from Staples. I live in the US. It was allready setup and registered with microsoft. My problem is that when I search google or youtube, ect it seems to look for UK sites. I went to real player site tonight and it was looking for realplayer.com/uk. by default. The computer also has another persons name (doug Sa?) on alot of the folders. (last name masked to protect the person).
How do I reconfigure my computer to US standards? Gateway,Laptop,Winxp.

A:uk to us conversion

Firstly, in Control Panel, Regional and Language settings set it for your country. Also in Time, make sure the right time zone is selected.

Do not try and rename the folders, you cannot.

You need to make a new log-in with administrator priviledges in your name, that will create a new set of correctly named folders. Then transfer any needed data and delete the previous persons profile, selecting the option to delete the data associated with it.

I have some .vob files that were recovered from a corrupted camcorder-recorded, finalized DVD-R video using IsoBuster. They play fine (and look fine) in programs like Media Player Classic. The problem is that I now would like to convert these clips for use in WinMovieMaker or some other software. I have tried to convert them to MPEG-2 using Koyote Free Video Converter. The resulting video is of poor quality. Is the problem due to the converter, or to the fact that I have chosen MPEG-2? Would .AVI be better? It seems to me that .AVI has many different codecs, which adds to the confusion.
Could someone please give me some guidance as to how to get clips in some common editing format that are just as good as the original .vobs? Your help would be very much appreciated! Thank you!

Hello all. My neighbour is a huge history buff and a hat collector, and he wanted to print himself some hats to do with history and Canada. He went to the local Lids store and they told him he needed a .DST file, so he asked for my help. I did a Google search and ended up here. Here are the 3 images he was looking to get on 3 different hats.

For the last image, the one of the great lakes, also maybe some text below it that simply says The Great Lakes.

He isn't too picky about these, they just need to be able to fit on baseball caps. He doesn't care about fonts or anything, just that The War of 1812 hat has red lettering.

If anyone would be be able to help me or point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful. I'm also more than willing to pay people for their time, as long as they let me know their price range beforehand.

Thanks very much for taking the time to read this.

A:.DST conversion help

Here's a screen shot and a zip file with the DST and color chart for the Great Lakes. The other two are more detailed than I can donate time to so you may need to have LIDS do the digitizing on those. They will need the contents of the zip file to do the hat.

Well, I can give you a partial answer.

There is a commercial application called Roxio Easy Media Creator that is a comprehensive suite of tools for creating, and editing all kinds of media such as video, audio, pictures, etc. and then managing them such as creating home DVDs, video clips, slide shows and of course disk burning. It costs around $50 and is easy enough to use since it is designed for the casual home user.

Within this suite is a utility called "LP and Tape Assistant". This utility has you connect the audio output from a LP player or Tape drive (or any audio source) to the input to your sound card on your PC. The utility then 'captures' the audio that comes out of your PC sound card (speakers) and converts it to any of several sound formats (such as MP3, WMA, WAV, etc.) and stores it in a file on your hard disk. You must do any queueing of the pieces and must manually type in the title, artist etc. if you want to so there is a fair amount of work involved. There are controls to autopause, silence system sounds etc. This utility can also be used to capture any audio from any source that is being sent to your PC speakers so you can surf the web looking for online radio to capture.

The same producer (Roxio) has provided, as a free 'Gadget' for Windows Vista, a stripped down version of this utility (LP and Tape Assistant, not the entire Easy Media Creator) that will do the capture and record functions of the full utility. The Gadget ... Read more

Using Winamp how do I convert MP3's to WAV? or is there a better free or shareware program to use?

A:MP3 conversion

Winamp works great for this...

Open Winamp. Click the uppermost left corner button to open the menu. Select Options--Preferences.

This should Open a new window.

From the left-hand column under Plug-ins, select 'OUTPUT'

Then from the right hand column select "Nullsoft Disk Writer plugin"

After you've selected that plugin, click the Configure button at the bottom to select where you would like your WAVs to be written.

Now when you 'play' MP3s they will be written out (usually pretty quickly) to your Hard Drive as .wav files!!!

Hope that works for ya

(ps. make sure you reselect the DirectSound Plugin when you want to use Winamp to play MP3s to your speakers again )

Sounds to me like you are missing a few codecs. Codec stands for code/decode. These are instructions for your computer to play and create different types of video/audio files. Head on over to www.codecguide.com and download the Mega Codec Pack. After installing (and restarting if necessary) try converting and burning again. Good luck!

PS Also check your burning software. If it has one, check the Verify box to make sure that the data you are burning is being burned properly. It will check the CD against the data on the harddrive to make sure it burned correctly.
