Re: ram converter

If you can play them with XMMS, you can set the output plugin to .wav and XMMS will create a .wav of it.

Other tools probably can do the same, but I only have experience with XMMS.

Re: ram converter

mplayer can play them, so you can use mencoder.

Re: ram converter

If mplayer can't do it, you can play them with realplayer and, while they're playing, use audacity to record from the sound card. Then you can save them as mp3.

Re: ram converter

thats what i've been doing but it takes too long. plus some of the tracks are close to 25 minutes each. i'm not really into all this media stuff, but my mom asked me when i had nothing better to do so i thought i'd give it a try.
