    I have a program that plays sounds, ie waterfall, stream, waves,etc. They are stored on the computer as NAT files. How can I convert them to mp3 or something that can play on a CD player? Thanks.

    I can find no reference to a audio file type of NAT anywhere. But that is a common term in broadcasting that applies to NATural audio, the background sounds such as traffic, surf, waterfalls, etc., used to fill in the background audio during interviews, etc. You could try dropping one of those into a program like Gspot and see if it is identified as a common audio format.

    What program are you using to play them? It could be a proprietary format that only that program uses. If all else fails, make a copy of one and change the extension to a more common audio format. It might take some trial and error.

    Or you could use an audio recorder program that can record "what u hear" off your soundcard in realtime. Then all you have to do is play the file and record it at the same time.

    Thanks guys, they play with Media classic, but I'm interested in finding a program that will record 'what you hear". Can you help with that. At the moment I'm recording it with my video camera and stripping out the audio.

    EDIT. Just found a recorder, thanks for giving me the idea.

    If they play using Media Player Classic, then the solution may be more simple than recording the audio in real-time - the .nat files may simply be renamed wave/mp3/etc. files. What program is using the .nat files? I tried a simple Google search, so I could take a look at the sounds and test this theory, but came up empty-handed. (Of course, my search was probably too vague, anyway.)

    It's a program called Natura sound wave therapy.

    When you have the NAT files loaded in Media Player Classic, what information for them do you see under File > Properties > Details tab?

    No problem glad to help.

    It would be interesting if renaming the file to .wav would work. You should let everyone know if it does.
