Re: need to cnveert wav voice recordings to mp3 om sansa...
Have you tried Audacity? It's free opensource sound editing software. Search Google for it or try downloading it at audacity dot sourceforge dot net. (You do have to install an mp3 encoder! but those are also free, and the Audacity site tells how to do this), Then you just import your wav file, and export it as an mp3

To play back a voice recording, you will need to do the following steps after turning on the player. Press Power/Menu briefly to get the software menu. Press the Repeat/A-B/Down button to highlight the line Play Music and press Select to enter the play back sub-menu. Press the Down button again to go to the line Recordings and press Select again. Use the Down button to highlight a particular voice recording and press Select to start playing the recording.
The manual for the Sansa M200 MP3 player is available as a PDF from the manufacturer here: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/241 . The details for playing back a Voice Recording are on page 23-24 (24-25 of the PDF). You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.
There is a free program called Media Monkey - it will convert WAV format to Mp3 (actually, it will convert any non-protected music file type - it's very dynamic). It may take a while to figure out how to do the first one, but it will get easier after that.
First, you have to plug the Thomson in to your computer, double-click "My Computer," and then double-click the icon of the Thomson. There should be a folder called "Voice or "REC". If it doesn't show up, select in the window: Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> select Show Hidden Files and folders. Now the right folder should show up. Then, drag the WAV recording to your desktop (or your "My Music" fodler - whichever works best for you), and the computer should make a copy of the WAV recording onto your computer.
Now open up Media Monkey and it should, after several minutes find all music files on your computer, including the WAV recording. Then right-click the WAV recording, and it should have an option to covnert the file type - convert to mp3, and you're done.
Unfortunately, Sandisk didn't include any options in their firmware to record in any other format.
If you happen to have a version 1 c250 then you can install Rockbox on it and have 4 recording format options, as well as being able to choose what bitrate to record in for the mp3 format.
To find out if your player is a v1 go to Settings -> System Info If the version starts with 01 then it's a v1 player and you can install Rockbox on it. If it starts with 03 then it's a v2 player and you're stuck with the wav format, as Rockbox is not yet available for v2 c250 players.
First, you will have to hook your Sansa to your computer. Then, you will need to double-click My Computer, double-click the icon or drive letter that corresponds to your Sansa, and then open the Voice folder. Find the recording that you want to back up and drag it to your desktop or other temporary location on your computer. Then you will most likely want to convert the recorded WAV file to mp3 format using Media Monkey or some other free conversion tool. Then use disc-burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn the converted file to CD. Have fun!
Find out what format the recording is in. If the format is a WAV, enter "WAV codec" into a search engine. You can also download the latest version of Quicktime - that has seemed to help a lot of people.
First, try to copy the files to your PC. Make sure you have a CD burning program and drive of some kind. WAV files are very large compared to Mp3 files, so you may be only to fit a few on an AUDIO CD. If you burn the WAV files to CD as a DATA CD, then you will be able to fit more files onto a single CD, but you will not be able to play that same CD in a CD player.
Look in the RECORD folder for your recorded .WAV files. These files may or may not work with Windows Media Player, which can generally be used to burn music files to a CD in the CD audio (CDDA) format or .WMA music data format. Conversion of the wave files into other formats, such as .MP3 is especially difficult since many programs don't recognize the headerless format that Sansa uses for its recorded .WAV files. I had to use JetAudio to convert them.
Yeah... Go to "My Computer," and select the player by right clicking and then hitting explore. You then need to hunt around in those folders till you find your recordings and then just highlight them and hit delete.
If you can't find them, try starting over, then after you "explore," go to tools-->folder options-->view--> then turn on "view hidden folders"
Hope this helps!
