Need a free mp3->Wav converter

Nero crashes when it tries to burn mp3 directly to an audio CD.  I need an mp3 decoder to do that decode step manually.  Know of a free one?

I'm sure WinAmp can do it through an output plugin. At least, I'd be extremely surprised if it couldn't.

I had the exact same problem, try this:

It is free, and there are other tools too that you might find useful.

CDEx is a CD ripping utility but it can also do batch conversions (MP3->WAV and WAV->MP3.)

EAC (Exact Audio Copy) may do it, I know it goes from CD -> WAV or MP3, but I don't know if it iwll go from MP3 to WAV.

Who still uses audio CDs?

Or just use iTunes.

HA HA HA, good points. "I know a good mp3 -> WAV converter, it's called an IPOD."

You know what I want.... A good MP3 -> Vynil converter. Oh the sacrilege.

Dumb question:  How do I actually use/start WinAmp's DiskWriter plug in?  (The above CTRL-P keystrokes simply display the plugin under Preferences.)

Is this a new Bella? The original one did not have an email link?

Nevermind, you just need to "play" the song.  (with the redirected output preference).  Very handy.  Thanks

PS: Original Bella.
