I have lots of legal music albums downloaded and each song file is not a .mp3 or .wav. They are .mpc How can I get these files to play in Winamp and be burned onto a CD?

I just found that I have some .ogg files also. These won't open in any program either. What's up with .ogg?

Thanks to whoever helps :thumbsup:

Hi there,

What you need is a program that will convert your sound files. Here's one it's shareware and you'll be able to have limited abilities with it for free but if you want it's full capabilities, you can pay a $19.95 registration fee. You can download the program by clicking on the program name in the Introduction. Purchasing the full version key info will be found in the program itself.

Not sure if there are any 100% free ones out there but thought i'd point you to this one anyway. Good luck.

Converting from one format to another may lower quality.

But here are some links to some progs that should do it. I cant vouch for any of them though:

I'm not sure about .mpc, but Audacity will handle .ogg files.
It's freeware.
