Hi ;

I used a software and converted Mp3 to Wav. The original file was 5MB, but
after chage to Wav format size of file is almost 60MB! Is ther any other way
to change the format with smaller size? Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Faram.

MP3 is (lossy) compressed WAV, so you bet that a file inflates that ratio!

Not if your output is a WAV file. MP3 to WMA file (in low bitrate) will
make a smaller file. But a WAV is uncompressed, both MP3 and WMA are
compressed.

You can shrink the format using Sound Recorder. Using the Sound Recorder,
open the WAV file and click File>Save As. Bottom of window you can change the
format to 8.000kHz, 16bit stereo You may have a very slight quality loss, but
my ears could not tell the difference.
