Hello, and thanks in advance. I really am struggling with this, and have looked at help screens ad nauseum. What I am trying to do is record my voice using Sound recorder on Windows XP, convert that file from wav to MP3, so that I may send someone an MP3 email attatchment.

I can record fine using Sound Recorder, and thought I had the file saved as MP3 but it is still a wav file. I did something in Sound Recorder in which I think I pressed a change icon/tab to MP3, but that doesn't work. As you can tell, I am unfamiliar with this. Seems like it should be an easy straight forward process, but I don't know what I am doing!!

Please tell what I am doing wrong. Thanks!!!

convert wav to mp3 software downloads and reviews at Download.com

The top two. Both are free and rated the best by the site editors and users.

You may want to use something more geared towards recording like Audacity Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder

You can record, edit, then export to an mp3 file.

Audacity will just be easier, its completely free, open source software, and its pretty straightforward. Download and try it out. You can even use it for your existing wav file.
