Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a WAV file that I am trying to convert to WMR for transcription purposes in Switch Sound File Converter Plus. It tells me that it cannot open the file because ther equired codec ("Sanyo LD ADPCM") is not installed. Can you advise what the best thing to do is. All the internet jargon seems so confusing. If I have to download anything, please give clear instructions. Thank you

    Hi Stelios

    This hasn't worked. The convert state has come up as Failed. Can I send you my WAV file and you convert it for me and send it back? This is driving me nuts, because I have now downloaded 3 conversion programmes on to my computer and none of them will convert these WAV files. What can the problem be? This is now costing me lots of money for something that I do all the time. Look forward to your reply.

I suggest you to use Format Factory (here is the link for you to download it from the official site). The use of this program is near to Switch Sound File Converter Plus, both are audio file converters. Among the advantages of the program I suggest is that iIt's a freeware program and it could be usefull when you need to convert video files too. In two words it converts all multimedia files to all multimedia files.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

    Kate, there is no problem send the file at steliosl@yahoo.com with the subject wav conversion to convert it for you. Don't forget to clarify me the mp3 settings you want the result (bitrate mainly). I will check also what is the problem with this conversion, although I think that it's not a typical wav but a moderated by Sanyo.....) Is Sanyo the brand name of the mp3 recorder that record this file? What is the model?

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

    According to Sanyo helpdesk:
    QUESTION:How do I make .wav files so that it can be played in any computer?
    ANSWER:Go into PC Memo Scriber:
    1) Click Start, Programs, Pc Memo Scriber, Pc Memo Scriber
    2) Click on the file of your choice (ex: AU1BU002.wav)
    3) On the top menu click on Edit, Format Conversion
    4) Click on PCM then click OK
    5) This will create a new file that can be played on any computer.

    If you need further faq from Sanyo take a look at this link.

    Mention that there must be 2 applications installed at your computer from Sanyo. In case of any of the two is missing you have to remove the other one and reinstall both.

    I suggest you make all the settings at your recorder so that the recordings are in a most common format (mp3, wma)

    In case neither of the above methods will help you, I already send at your e-mail the file Sanyo-ADPCM-codec.zip. It's a 10 years old file for installing all the necessary drivers for playing / converting Sanyo's LD - AD PCM audio files. Extract the file and run the setup file from the internal folder.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
    If you are satisfied, accept my solution. Please consider leaving a 4-thumbs rating; I'd appreciate it greatly.

    Thanks and regards

How do i convert personally recorded nwf to wma sound files


Hi ,

Open Nero Burning Rom and see if Nero recognizes your personal files . If yes , drag and drop them to the left panel , select the recorder in witch you have loaded a blanc cd and clic on
" burn compilation " . Nero is set to burn to WAV by default .
If this does'nt work with Nero , you can try another soft , for instance Switch Sound File Converter from NCH and convert your files to Wav on the HDD . And yes , it's free .

Is it possible to splice 2 msv files (one after the other) so they become one file? These files have already been transferred to my PC.


OK well in that case you could convert them to WAV and join that and play it that way? Download and install the Switch Audio Converter. Switch can convert between numerous audio file types and has the capability of reading MSV files.
Add the MSV file you would like to convert to the Switch converter. Click on "Add File(s)" and browse for the file in the search window that comes up. When you locate the file, click "Open" to import it to the converter.
Select WAV as your output file type. The .wav extension is one of the options in the "Output Format" drop-down menu at the bottom-left corner of the Switch screen. Choose an output folder for your WAV file. To find a folder, click "Browse" next to the "Output folder" box. Locate the folder where you would like to save the WAV file on your hard drive and click "OK."

Click "Convert" to begin the conversion process. The "Convert" button is in the bottom-right corner of the screen. When you click "Convert," a small window with a progress bar will pop up to monitor the status, and a pop-up message will inform you when the conversion is complete. The WAV file will now be available in your chosen output folder. http://www.softplatz.com/freeware/wav-joiner/

Plug in for downloaded ringtone


You can't actually do that.
If you have the original version Katana, the 6600, it's only plays polyphonic ringtones, in the qualcom format of QCB.
Freeringers.net has a good help section if you sign up with them, here's a cut and paste version.

You basically need a program to convert an mp3 to a wav file format. (like dbpower amp but there are many others, alot of them freeware).
Sound recorder on your computer applications, to pick a segment and crop the audio. Usually about 30 to 60 seconds is good enough. There's a file limit size on the Katana for downloads of about 100kb.
And a converter program that will convert wav to qcb. You can download an application from Qualcom Communications for free, or this little program called purevoice.
http://www.freeringers.net/apps/pvconv.exe
All you do is little drag the wav file over this application and it automatically compiles in about 3 seconds, a qcb file into the same folder.
http://www.qctconnect.com/products/purevoice_downloads.html
Provides the full version of purevoice convertor so you can listen to the quality of the qcb file.

You'll need an application to convert the MP3 or CD to a WAV file. We suggest this free tool:
dBpowerAmp Converter 10.1 (Download and install it)

You'll also need PureVoice for QCP conversion:
PureVoice Converter (No installation. Right click "Save Target As...")

If you're running Windows Vista you'll need the Windows XP version of Sound Recorder:
Sound Recorder (Right click link, "Save Target As...", save to "C:\Windows\System32\")


s_win.gif Conversion Steps:

Note: If you want to rip a song from a CD, replace step 1 with these instructions.
  1. We'll assume you're converting a file named "test.mp3" for this guide. Insert your own file name instead. Run dBpowerAmp and select the "test.mp3" file and click "Open".
  2. Change the drop downs to "Wave", "16 Bit (CD)", "8000 Hz", "1 'Mono'", Output To: "Folder", and "Browse" to select your "Desktop".
  3. Click "Convert >>" and once it's completed click "Finished" and you'll have a file named "test.wav" on your Desktop.
  4. Run Sound Recorder (included with Windows) and from the "File" menu "Open..." the "test.wav" file created in step 3. (if you can't find Sound Recorder, see Needed Applications above)
  5. Shorten the ringtone to 30 seconds or less. You can also crop it so it starts at the beginning of the choirs. To crop the audio clip, use the "Edit" menu to "Delete Before Current Position" or "Delete After Current Position". [?]
  6. Click the "File" menu and select "Save" which will overwrite the "test.wav" file.
  7. Grab and drag the icon for "test.wav" and drop it on top of the PureVoice icon "pvconv". It will convert and create a new file named "test.qcp", almost like magic.
