My niece is new to computing. Her parents just bought her a Gateway notebook running XP HOME. She is far from being computer savvy but has managed to rip some of her favorite songs from her CD collection and was also able to buy some music from iTunes. She just bought herself an iPod Shuffle and has learned how to transfer her music to it.
She is also a major Pearl Jam fan. She told me that â€œtheyâ€ are offering a 10-CD collection of live music for free download. However, itâ€™s offered as a bit torrent file â€“ which she admits is beyond her capabilities. Being my favorite niece (actually, my only niece) and since I have cable connection to the net, I offered to download the file for her, burn it to CDs and mail it to her (she is out of state).
I did manage to download the files (there are over 100 of them) last night (4 hours for a 5 Gig download) but discovered that they are all in â€œflacâ€ format.
Now to my question (I know, finally):
Is there software available to convert these 100+ â€œflacâ€ files to â€œwavâ€ format?
Since this is not something I foresee doing again, so Iâ€™d like to stay away from paid software if that is at all possible.
Doing some research, Iâ€™ve seen reference to Nero being able to burn FLAC files to audio CDs. If this is true, then my problem is solved â€“ I do have NERO 6.
Thanks in advance,
