I have some legacy software and a down level Windows 98 OS... long story...

Anyways, I have recorded a lot of sound files in MP2 format using a program made by Iomega called RecordIT. It's native format is *.MP2. It can't read or save to *.MP3 format. I would like to be able to convert these files to *.MP3 so that I can share them over E-mail. The MP2 files that I have are an average size of 8 megabytes plus... so even one file will blow most e-mails out of the water because of their buffer size limitations. I want to convert these files to Wave files. I have the ability to encode Wave files as MP3 files. Only I can't encode MP2 files as MP3 files. I don't know why, but you just can't. Most programs I have seen think my MP2 files are video files. Well, they really aren't.

 

HALP!!!

I just tried converting an mp2 to mp3 in Switch and it worked fine. I believe I got the DirectX mp2 codec on my computer after installing RealPlayer, perhaps try doing that first.

 

Actually, reading your post a little closer, have you tried using Switch at all?

Yes... I tried it but it said that it was either an error or the program couldn't open the mp2 file type. I have installed realplayer on my system, but because I have an old windows (98) I can't load the latest realplayer, cause it only works with windows XP. I'm sure this wouldn't be a problem if I had Windows XP and all the bells and whistles, but I don't. That's why I want to convert MP2's to waves... so I can use switch to change the Waves to MP3's and e-mail them (smaller file size)
