what is the freeware available to convert .dat (vcd format) files into gp3 format???????????????
I haven't tried it yet
Same thread is going on in this forum http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/showthread.php?t=39297
It's 3GP, & i didn't find anything free. Try the cds bundled with Nokia, SonyEricsson, they might have some sw
Try Quicktime For windows( really slow and resource hungry ), its not free but will serve the purpose.
or try xillisoft 3gp converter (Google it)
Try Nokia PC Suite... U can d/l it for free from Nokia's site
DAT to MPEG---->VCDGear
MPEG to 3GP---->Nokia Multimedia Player
I am using Imtoo 3gp converter with quality control
register yourself or ask me.
Another alternative way.
1. extract the DAT file from the VCD via ISO Buster, use option MPEG frames only option while extracting and give the file extension as "mpg" (without the qoutes).
2. Download the latest Nokia PC Suite, its much lighter then one bundled in CD. Use it to encode the extracted mpeg file to 3gp.
IMtoo as mentioned is not a free software, if you can afford, it'll do the job fine. But Nokia PC suite is free. For other formats try free software such as Virtual Dub.
