I'm trying to convert shn files to wav's. Is there any tool for that. Have installed shntool, but it doesn't really tell me how to work it. Thanks for any help.

There is a tool called shn2wav. you will need it to do the conversions.

Maybe start here:Google search (http://www.google.com/search?q=shn2wav&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=com.ubuntu:en-US:official&client=firefox-a)

My notes from using the tool:

Navigate to the directory with your shn files and...
[folder with SHN's must be directly in home folder]


$ shn2wav

Then you will (hopefully) have a directory full of wav files, which you can then input into the burning app of your choice.

Hope this helps...

Problem solved. Found shntool, and pacpl. together they can convert basically any format to any format.

thanks for the info on shn2wav.
