  3. Cannot convert MP3 to wav to burn audio CD

    I have made a mp3 recording using Perfect recorder app on Windows 8 Phone Lumia 635. I have transfered this 2 mp3 files to a Windows 10 PC. I can play this files without any problem in Windows media player or the new metro style player.

    But when I try to burn it as audio CD with the media player it throws an error (there is a red cross indicating some unspecified problem). When I try to convert it with the VLC media player, it produces a playable but a very noisy poor quality wav file.

    Other mp3 to wav cobnverters, like Freac or Free online mp3 to wav converter, fail completely producing almost empty file. There is probably some problem with file headers, I have tried a software that should fix mp3 but no success.

    Is there any other way how to convert or burn audio cd from playable but somehow corrupted mp3?

    Windows Media Player 10 will not play the audio on Wav files. MP3 files ok.

    Windows Media Player 12 stopped working suddenly, wont play mp3 or wav

    They all play in my Windows Media Player (and any other player). They use the PCM codec in unsigned 8-bit format (pcm_u8).

    PCM was the first and simplest of all audio formats. It is the standard for the WAV format and should be playable in anything.

    https://support.microsoft.com/help/3...s-media-player

    Whatever is preventing you playing them is specific to your machine. Have you installed any third-party codecs? If so, it seems that you may be using a broken PCM codec in place of the standard Windows one.
