[Powderworks] NMOC. MP3 to Wav

A couple different ways to go about doing what you want.  You can use a 
lossless compressor like Monkey's Audio, which will compress them to about 
1/2 the space.  You can then expand the files back into .wav files 
perfectly if needed.  You can play these in players like Winamp just like a 
.wav or mp3.

Or you can go MP3.  Programs like Nero will burn straight from MP3 to 
CD.  MP3 is lossy, so you need to burn at a relatively high rate to keep 
quality up - like 192k or so.

Take care.
