ILOVEMYMARSHALL was kind enough to direct me to this forum as I am new to this process of downloading/uploading shows. I can't seem to get the Utorrent flac files to my SWITCH software to convert to Wav and then burn to disc. Here are the steps I go through to get the shows.I go to traders den utorrent audio archives and transfer the shows to my desktop. Then I open Utorrnet and download the shows to my utorrent "inbox" so to speak. Utorrent shows a bar that reflects the % of the show that has downloaded. It eventually says 100% and I have the show. I then right click and open the show and it usually lists track by track of the torrent. My problem is now how do I get it from Utorrent to my SWITCH software to convert to wav files? Thanks anyone who feels like being a good samaritan today:thumbsup:cool::DLook forward to anybody's reply. I have the ZEP show from 12/10/07 reunion and am dying to hear it. THANKS, BD

I don't understand why you need to convert to wav prior to burn. If you are using Nero there are some *free* flac/shn/ape/etc, etc plugins that let you avoid the wav conversion.

Nero Audio Plugins (http://www.bitburners.com/nero-audio-plugins/)

You need to learn where you are putting your files when you get them with uTorrent. You can right-click the torrent listing in uTorrent and choose "Open Containing Folder" or similar to get to the standard windows folder where you chose to save them.

Once you are in that folder, you can use FLAC Frontend (http://flac.sourceforge.net/download.html) to decode the FLACs back to WAV, if you need to.

There are also several burning programs that have plugins to allow you to drag and drop FLACs for burning, without having to decode first.

have fun!

^not everybody uses Nero, dude.

you can play back on your computer using foobar2000 or winamp

keep all those data files as you downloaded them if you ever want to trade with anybody.

if you need to decode to wav TLH (http://tlh.easytree.org/) or FLAC frontend or xAct if you're on a mac.

If you are using Nero...

Also, a newcomer to Nero may be unaware of those plugins. (I was one of them converting to wav when I started). Not everybody starting today knows that. (snap?) ;)
