    Using Winamp how do I convert MP3's to WAV? or is there a better free or shareware program to use?

    Winamp works great for this...

    Open Winamp. Click the uppermost left corner button to open the menu. Select Options--Preferences.

    This should Open a new window.

    From the left-hand column under Plug-ins, select 'OUTPUT'

    Then from the right hand column select "Nullsoft Disk Writer plugin"

    After you've selected that plugin, click the Configure button at the bottom to select where you would like your WAVs to be written.

    Now when you 'play' MP3s they will be written out (usually pretty quickly) to your Hard Drive as .wav files!!!

    Hope that works for ya :)

    (ps. make sure you reselect the DirectSound Plugin when you want to use Winamp to play MP3s to your speakers again :D )
