    assuming you meant mp3:
    foobar2000 works fine for me
    probably not the most user friendly though

    or if you want to demux the audio track from a mpg file
    I remember doing it a long time ago with TMPGEnc
    after getting the mp2 file from mpg, you can make it into wav or whatever using foobar~

    Hey Gr8Metal or anyone else

    I've downloaded Quintessential and converted an MP3 to a WAV. Now the reason I want to do this is i'm mucking around with a piece of software which allows me to attach a music file to something else and then e-mail it to mates. Using Quint my 3.084 kb mp3 turned into a 33,859 kb wav which means that it's no good to e-mail. Am I missing something? I don't want hi-fi stereo/ultra digital quality - just as long as the music sounds reasonable. Any suggestions please??

    wav are usually bigger than MP3 probably coz of compression

    Like BMP is usually bigger than jpeg
