I have just downloaded a load of music files which have the file extension .wv I thought this would be just a simple .wav type file but its not. It doesnt agree with any of my basic music play back programs or my mp3 conversion program. Does anyone know what extension this is and how can i convert the files to normal mp3 format for playback? Many thanks

hey, thanks very much for the link but the pages are unavailable apparently. found out that the program used to compress to .wv is called sonarc, some old dos program so trying it from that angle.

Another file extension that i have that doesnt work is .avi which is very strange. i have many files under the extension .avi.bc! which works fine but not .avi Does anyone know why this is? Thanks again
