Windows 7: How to convert MP3 to WAV?

How to convert MP3 to WAV?

For my own music to be used in 'GTA: San Andreas' on the custom radio thing, they need to be WAV files. Is there anyway I can convert them to WAV for free and effectively?
I don't wanna play them in WMP in the background as with GTA you can get commentary after songs and little adverts which are really funny

I would recommend using a free program called Audacity, you will need the mp3 encoder to work with mp3s.

Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder

Lame MP3 Encoder Binaries

hope this helps

Hi there

remember that MP3 is a hideously LOSSY compression format in the first place

I think you would be better off saving your music in FLAC in the first place and THEN convert to MP3 for Ipods etc. Converting FLAC to WAV is not a problem since both formats are LOSSLESS

A good Forum for this stuff is Hydrogen Audio where this type of operation is discussed.
