Trying to convert real files to wave. Doing this trhu a thru a converter from another site. I have d/l real atlernative, ac3 filter, direct show.

When I try to convert it will not and it gives me this msg:

"Direct show filter to ram file types is not installed, or audio files is corrupt dDecpder::open

I am running a Dell vista home basic. dimension c521 sempron 3400=(1.80ghz,256k. 1 gb ddr2 sdram at 667mhz sound is sigmatel hidef.

If anyone has some thoughts, ideas or would know what type of ram filter I need I would appreciate it.

Sounds Like The Converter Isn't Fully Vista Compatible

Vista is extremely intolerant of DRM issues.. I've seen some of your discussions in other forums and unfortunately, I've got little to add.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I'm sorry that I did not keep xp, I do not like vista to many problems.
