    I want to have some voices that I recorded on my Treo 650 with the sound record option on my computer. Is there a way to convert the TONxxxxx.pdb file into mp3 wav something useful?

    Thanks...

    Hook a cable out of your headphone jack and plug it into your PC and record it into some simple audio recording app. like sound recorder (comes with WinXP if you are using a PC).

    This would be a worse-case workaround, but it would work. I don't know of any database-to-wave translators.

    You also might try copying the .pdb file to your PC and simply renaming it to <name>.wav and attempt to simply play it in sound recorder or some other app. like Windows Media Player that plays .wav files.

    Why not just use a 3rd party VR app like Soundrec etc that records directly as wav file on the Treo instead? That way you can just play the audio file on the desktop without have to convert anything...

    I agree with the above post. Then you can bring it into Audacity, another freeware program and save it as an MP3. @ do this when recording mobile podcasts.

    I wasn't aware of Soundrec. That would be the way to go.

    Just to clarify, RiverBruce is referring to a "PC" program named Audacity and not the PalmOS recording program by the same name. The PC app seems really powerful. (I just installed it about a week ago.) You can find the PC app at: http://audacity.sourceforge.net. (Since the "PC" audacity is open source, you can even browse the codebase online from the link just mentioned.) There is also a PalmOS application called (in my case) "Audacity(TM) Personal V2.00 On the PalmOne Treo 600." http://www.AudacityAudio.com Now whether or not they really have a trademark on the name "Audacity" I don't know for sure. (It says "TM" on my Treo, but nowhere on their webpage does it say Audacity is trademarked. Soundrec is free and is a nice program but it does not do compressed .WAV files. Audacity offers compressed and uncompressed, as well as a program named mVoice (http://www.MotionApps.com). There are other sound recording programs too. You can find more at this URL: http://mytreo.net/downloads/cat70-0-titleA-30.html (I don't know why I read mostly here but do most of my dowloads from MTDN?) In any case, you can record on a Treo to your card as long as it is a "fast" card. My experience was that a Kingston 256Mb was too slow and resulted in choppy, unusable recordings to card, but a recently bought Patriot "Extreme" (60X) 1Gb card works fine. If you have a small/slow card (like the one I mentioned, mVoice is a nice alternative. I think I was able to record to the card compressed, but some other software programs I tried (several months ago) could not read the compressed files. Maybe things have changed. If you just want to record to the card and then move the files off your PC, the Soundrec/Audacity(OpenSource) combination is hard to beat. You can use a software program (CardExport II http://softick.com/cardexport2/) to get the recordings off your SD card and onto the PC (using a hotsync USB cable).

    have fun!

    Thanks for the great advice.. I already have them recorded and would like to have them on my desktop for sounds.. So I guess I will have to use the audio plug version.. Again thanks for all the help..
