3GP music conversion

2 replies 19 views Edited Dec 30, 2011

Okay, I asked this before and no one has answered it so I'll give it another try. Why is the PS3 converting my music cd's (when I download them to the PS3) to 3GP format? Has anyone else even noticed this on their systems? Just to get it back to WAV or another format to burn back to cd I have to go through 2 processes on my laptop.

Anyone know of one program that will do this?

It's Sony in-house  technology. Sony makes professionnal music equipment for recording and producing and as part of that, they develop their own compression technologies for audio  and  video. They also make chips (ASICs etc) to process those algorithms.

One place this use of inside technology is apparent is compatibility within the brand. The music stored in the 3gp format is playable on my PSP (connect via USB for easy transfer) which I have to say is pretty convenient. I can also swap mp4 video files back and forth between the two. (I have a Handbrake setup I use with media center to process DVDs for PSP.)
