I have Photo Story 3 for Windows and would like to rip the music files from that programme to use in other Windows applications, but I can not find the music files... Could some one help me find them.

I'm not familiar with that programme, but if is it on your computer, try Rightclick>Explore and see what happens.

Alternatively, try to add a music into a project, look for the title and than look for that title.

Hey Rosso -

I've got Photo Story 3, and the help regarding adding music says:

The music file can be in Windows Media Audio (WMA), MP3, or WAV format.



Therefore, it would seem I don't understand your question, since those file types can be used in most other MS applications.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Now I see what you mean. PS3 comes with quite a few audio "clips", but they aren't in a standard audio format.

Don't know if there are any converters that will alter them.

Maybe someone else will come up with one?


However, the "old fashioned" way to convert these is basically as follows:

Open Photo Story 3 and get the section where it allows you to play the desired audio selection.

Also, open "Sound Recorder". By default it is in - Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment.

Using Sound Recorder, record the sound as it is played in Photo Story 3.

You can then save that sound as a "wav" file.

I know, that doesn't seem very high tech, and you may have to edit out some dead space at the beginning and end of the wav file, but it does work.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Thanks JohnWho I will give that a try and get back to you. :flowers:

Further to that... What a star you are, I followed your instructions and further edited the .wav files in 'Nero wave editor' saving them as .mp3 files...and bingo :thumbsup:
