Petro, this was my finding too. I've used all versions of the converter and never had problems until I tried converting the Ogg files back to MP3's. I really appreciate your instructions, even though I've used the converter before, because I didn't know the shortcut keys you gave so will use these.
The other thing I wanted to address, and I know this is a bit off-topic, is the issue of Ogg files playing on the handmade CD or data CD disc. You said the files can be played using Winamp, and I found this to be correct after trying it. But those who don't have much experience with different file formats do need to know they will not play in the CD/MP3 player itself. I was hoping I could play these files while traveling and away from my PC, but the actual CD/MP3 player skips the Ogg files on the disc so this is why I wanted to convert them using Replay's converter.
I do hope that Lesley is reading and that the company might be able to help us with this particular format and converting it to MP3.
Thanks for helping me check this out, Petro.----- Original Message ----- From: <petrakigianos-giasou@xxxxxxxxx>

I could not convert the .ogg file to mp3 (16, 32, 64, 128 bit rates) here. Looks like you can only convert to the .ogg but not from .ogg to mp3. I hope I am wrong here. Leslie can you ask tech support if it is possible to: convert .ogg files to .mp3 with Replay Converter 2.80 the latest version. --- petrakigianos-giasou@xxxxxxxxx wrote:Lets go back one step here. You can copy any data to a CD disc. It's just data. So you can copy those .ogg files to a blank CD disc. Your friend can do whatever with that CD. Is this what you wanted to do there? As you know your friend can play those .ogg files with Winamp player. If you want to convert those .ogg files to .mp3 with Replay Converter then do: 1. Run the Replay Converter program. Version is 2.80. 2. Press your Tab key until you hear Add Files button then press your spacebar key. 3. Standard Dialog box appears. Select your files. 4. When finished adding your files press the spacebar on the open button. 5. Replay Converter is back in focus. 6. Presss your tab key until you hear the audio conversions area. 7. Choose the audio format by using your up and down arrow keys to select it. 8. Press alt+c . 9. The conversion job begins. 10. When the conversion job is successful you will hear a success tone sound and a dialog box telling you it was done successfully. Choose the OK button. Your converted files will end up in the same folder where your original files were located that you were trying to convert. The defaults are to send the converted files to the same folder. Before you start with step 2 from above instructions press your tab key a few times to make sure you hear the Convert Audio and Write To Same Folder buttons on Replay Converter's interface. If you do not hear the above 2 buttons just use your up/down arrow keys to make the changes. Since I don't have a .ogg file here I converted .mp3 to .ogg and now will see if I can convert the .ogg back to .mp3. --- Joanne <houseofmusic3345@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > I was going to make a data disc of MP3's for a friend, but the > original material is in Ogg format and I know that doesn't > show up on a data disc.
