Default how to disable voicenote/recording conversion in Media manager?

Please Login to Remove!

hi, all. i tried to search a solution but no hit.

when i use roxio media manager(accompanied in desktop manger v4.6) to transfer recordings from BB to my laptop, roxio converts .amr format recording to mp3 automatically.

while .amr file compression ratio is very good, such as 100kb for 1minute of default setting, the mp3 file is around 400kb.

so my question is:
1. how to disable the conversion? or any other third pary software as a file manager which does not convert?

2. any convenient method to play .amr file in laptop? such as a plugin for winamp?

thanks in advance.

Instead of using the Media Manager, you can use your BB on mass storage mode and your PC will see it as another hard drive. Then you can cut and paste, or move the files from your BB to your PC without any conversion.

You can listen to .amr files with Quick time player.
