    Good day !

    I am trying to download a MP3 file
    from the internet
    into my MP3 sony walkman NW-E8.
    When I tried to do that it shows
    this messages ,"the player only supports 2 channels :16bits , 44KHZ ".
    The MP3 files from the internet that I want to download into my walkman had the following specification :
    mp3 files
    LOW RESOLUTION
    16kb/11khz mp3 files
    HIGH RESOLUTION
    32kb/22khz
    What software can I use to convert
    the MP3 FILES ( 11 khz or 22Khz ) to 44Khz?

    I am not 100%, but if you use the WinAmp disk writer for playback you will have a 44.1khz .WAV file? But then it's not MP3 anymore, and coding back to MP3 will harm the quality even further. Burn the stuff on a audio CD?

    Because your file is already low quality, you can use any audio editor software that reads MP3 format, like GoldWave or CoolEdit, and re-sample the files to 44kHz, then re-encode back to MP3.

    Wipe2000,

    That would make the quality even worse.

    Yes, but the originals are 22kHz, 32kbps !!!
    I don't think alt preset standard will do very much more harm...
    If you don't have a wave editor, you can decode the files with Winamp disc writer (I wouldn't trust its resampling routines and stay in automatic settings), then you can resample them to 44.1 kHz with SSRC (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/audio_software/audio_tools/ssrc.cfm).
    Then it's up to you to burn audio CDs with them, or make new MP3s from them.
