Do you have Windows Media Player? It can convert your files.

I can't get this to work on my computer. My WMP doesn't have a "rip" button.

It's a little complicated, though who knows what happens with all the various upgrades and all that take place.

I'll look for .wav file sometime soon and give this a try.

i tried to download it but it sent me to an unsecured page maybe it works on yours because you downloaded it before they release the latest version.
and about the windows media player i will give it a try.
and thank you and if you could tell me how to reply to a specific post it would be nice.

I hope this is a simple question: Did Audacity rename the "effect" tool formerly known as "leveler"? My version 2.2.2 has lots of effects, but no "leveler" as discussed in our Audacity help section. (My volume wavered a bit (as I must've) and I'd like to "even" out the volume. Thanks.

If has apparently been moved under the Distortion effect submenu -

I've personally never been a fan of the leveler effect, so I don't use it myself. You might consider trying dynamic compression instead.

Hmmn...sounds a little ominous, distortion effect. I think I'll try your suggestion first. Thanks much.

By the way, the amazing VLC can also re-encode audio file formats. A page that says how to convert .wav to .mp3 is at: https://www.vlchelp.com/convert-audio-format/
