Q: Solved: Can I convert mp3 file into windows media file?

Hello everyone,

Thanks for taking time to read my thread; I was wondering how I can convert a wav file into mp3 and also can I can convert an mp3 file into a media that I can play on Windows Media Player or Realtime or into any other format? Thanks in advance for your help.

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: Solved: Can I convert mp3 file into windows media file?

You'd only want to convert a wav to any format you want to use. Going from a lossy format (such as mp3) to say wmv (another lossy format) you will lose signal degredation, and end up with a audio file you wouldn't like. Most any old audio editing programs should allow you to save in .mp3/.wmv etc.

I have a sound file in Palm PDB format created in the Palm Voice Memo program. I moved it from the Palm device to the Windows desktop PC. Problem is I cannot find any way to convert this to any format readable by the Windows system.

I moved the file from the Palm's internal memory to its SD card because the Palm Voice Memo application would not allow it to be copied to the SD card so now it is no longer in the Palm's internal memory, neither can it be put back into the Palm's internal memory in any way that the Voice Memo program can recognize it.

If I could get it back into the Palm's Voice Memo program, I could at least play it; but, it is more desirable to just convert it from PDB to WAV or MP3 or any other Windows format.

I've been working on this problem off and on for several weeks and have no solution. I would even be willing to pay someone to do it for me if anyone can.

A:Convert a Palm PDB file to a Windows-readable file

After weeks of off-and-on trying, I finally used a combination of words in Google that got me to a solution and I'm posting it here in the event someone else might need to do the same thing:

How to Convert PDB to MP3

Programs needed:
Clie Picture Converter
Mobile Media Converter
Both are freeware programs downloadable from the internet.

Go to your Palm data folder on your PC. Something like
C:\Program Files\Palm\[user-name]\Backup

You'll find files like [xxxxxxxxxxxx]_Vpad.pdb

These are the VoicePad files.

Copy the files you need to a temporary folder

Open Clie Picture Converter, and drag the files from the temporary folder to the Clie Picture Converter window.

New files with .JPG extension will appear in the temporary folder.

Rename these *.JPG files to *.AMR files.

use Mobile Media Converter to convert the .AMR files to .MP3 files.

This is what worked for me.

How do yo convert a recorded TV show from the Windows Media Center Edition format to a format that can be read by a Sony DVD Player?

A:How to convert a Media Center recorded file to a DVD for a DVD player

You do it within the realms of the DMCA, taking account of any "fair usage" laws that apply in your country - and if you live in the UK, it's a grey area even at that.

What's the name of the show, and when did it air? If it's commercially available, I personally would consider such an act to be piracy, which techspot does't help people with in any way shape or form.

I tried the recommendations for fixing this below:


Follow these steps to grant full permissions to the folder where the files are stored: 1. Right click on the folder on the external drive and click on
properties. 2. On the property window, click Security tab.
3. Now click on Edit and then click Add.
4. Now type everyone in the box and
click OK.

5. Then check Full control check box.

6. Click on Apply and then click OK.
You may also try the below mentioned steps:
1. Click on Start. 2. Go to Control Panel. 3. Select "SOUND". 4. Double click on speakers. 5. Click on advanced tab and then uncheck enable audio enhancements.

But then I received the error message that I don't have rights to edit and add.  Why would this be?  I am the administrator?


A:Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.

Please first take ownership of the folder or files, then give yourself full control permission.

If it is a proprietary format, you need to use the program that created them. If they are a standard format with a different file ending, you would need to find out what that ending is. But for starters, just in case it is a text file, or at least readable as text, try a text editor.

I have a group of files I created in Microsoft Works 3.0 ( word processing and spreadsheets.) I have the original files on Floppy Disc, Scan Disc, and on my Hard Drive. I have tried coverters, and the best results I have received are partial, or full text with symbols. Nothing with the original documents creation form and font style.

My son plays basketball for an out-of-town college and I can download the radio broadcast games from the audio streaming over the internet into asf files using software called WM Recorder and WM VCR. The broadcasts can be as long as 3 hours and the asf file for a single game can be over 120mg. I want to burn this file onto a regular CD that I can listen to on a normal CD player such as a CD player in a car. I used software called Riverpast Audio Converter to convert the asf file to a wav file but neither the asf or wav files work in my CD player. I can playback either file (asf or wav) through Windows Media Player on my computer and they work fine. How can I listen to these downloaded broadcasts on a normal CD player? (I understand that I may have to split the file as I was told that a normal CD can only play back up to 80 minutes of audio).

Hello - I want to take wav files off an SD card and convert them for use on any CD player. I have been told to convert wav files to pcm files which come under the umbrella of "redbook files" - all confusing and still can't do it. I have Nero 7 and do not know how to go about this. I transfer the files from an SD memory card to the Vista PC and know that I cannot just drag them and hope they'll convert. Any ideas? Thanks!

A:convert SD card wav file to file playable by any CD player

If you have Nero, all you should have to do is burn an Audio CD and add the WAV file to the compilation. No converting by you needed.

Open Nero StartSmart, select "Make Audio CD" from the Audio tasks, click Add and browse to where you have the WAV file and Add it to the compilation, close the Add window and you shoudl that the audio file has been added. Click Next, give the CD a title and click Burn.

Everytime I try to convert this .mov file, there is always some issue. I have tried almost every free online converter out there it seems and it never works. one site said this, however: "The source file has been encrypted with Digital Rights Management (DRM) of the owner"
I think this may have been it, so I was wondering if there was a way to get around this. I am running Windows 7, fyi. Im not doing anything illegal like pirating the file, and I got it from "The American Presidency Project" website after I downloaded Quicktime Player Pro, something I had to do to obtain it. I am doing a project and need to upload it, and in order to do so, it needs to be in mp3 format. It is a speech by Ronald Reagan on the Iran-Contra affair. If anyone could help, that would be great!

i have read my manual. it seems that i have to use a cd compact disc digital video, which i assume i can easily purchase.

hi. i have a sony camcorder. i copied the contents of the video camcorder onto my computer. my computer automatically saves it as a combination of .modd files and mpeg move files.

now, i want to burn a cd so that i can put that cd into my toshiba dvd player attached to my computer. i want to ultimately view and hear the contents ot my sony camcorder onto tv.

my toshiba dvd player says that it will play mp3/jpeg/divX/avi files on a cd compact disc digital video.

how do i do this? i have been using nero, which is not one of the above files. the result is that i can see the video on the dvd player, but i can not hear it. i have also been using only a cd compact disc recordable.

is it that the cd compact disc recordable is not the same as a cd compact disc digital video? or is it because the nero file is not a divX or avi file?

if i have to do this correctly, what do i do? what is the difference between the two cd types? i am going to buy the video one today. but once i have that, what kind of encoding softward do i need? i dont want to buy it, as this is a two time event only.

A:Solved: Convert picture to new file type

First enable Hide extensions for known file types in Control Panel - Folder Options.

If it does, and it is not opening, then it may be corrupt or missing headers.
You could try Irfanview and see if it can open the file.

If not, then try adding .jpg (the most common image filetype, though there are many)to the end of the filename and then try to open.

When playing any audio file (.wma, .wav, .mp3) I get the message that the file cannot be player : 0xC00D1199: Cannot play the file. Since I can play the file with e.g. MusicMatch, I can confirm there is nothing wrong with it.

Everything used to work fine, until I used a registry cleaner a while ago. Since then MediaPlayer doesn't seem to work anymore. I tried everything I could think of : uninstall/reinstall mediaplayer, regsrvr32 on all DLLs, reinstall the codecs (Fraunhofffer II). I even tried to downgrade to mediaplayer 7, but then windows told me there was no need, since I had all the necessary tools already installed (and I just uninstalled MediaPlayer 9 !).

Does anyone know what is going on and what I can do to solve this ?

Probably some of you will suggest to simply use another audiotool. This is what I am doing right now, but I would like to know what is going on and how I can solve it.
