    There is no point, it doesn't improve the quality. Just makes the file bigger.

    But if you want to you need an MP3 decoder. Go to download.com type it in the search a pick up a free one.

    Stay away from dbpower, its shareware and can cause serious problems with your files if you uninstall it. I've had tons of problems.

    There are plenty of completely free options to convert mp3 into wave.

    **Windows XP only**

    When you install a program that program may associate itself with filetypes such as mp3, wav, etc and make itself the default player. When the program is uninstalled the associations are removed but, in most cases, not reverted to their original values. This leaves your files in limbo until they are reassociated using right click -> Open With and ticking 'always use this program'. This will affect all files that the program chooses to associate with but when you install a program it should give you the option of not associating it with the files. Generally if you've fucked your system then it's best to reassociate everything with Media Player which is the default player. To do this, open Media Player, open the tools menu then -> options -> file types tab, and click 'select all' and then ok.

    Nevertheless please try Audacity, it rocks! Just don't associate it with stuff when installing.
