Unsupported wav format


I am having troubling with voice recordings that I make on my mp3man mp3 player. These are in wav format 8MHz mono. I can play and convert them in windows but lame from the command line tells me "corrupt or unsupported wave format""

Audacity won't load the files either. The nearest I can get is by importing raw data at a a sample rate of 8000 on the Vox ADPCM but the files sound terrible.

I can play and convert these files in windows and they sound fine but I really don't want to have to go into windows to use the files.

you might be able to convert them to a higher samplerate using sox
sox old.wav -r <newrate> new.wav

Thanks. That does get me a file that audacity will read!

Curiously if I do the convert at 8000 which is the original sample rate audacity can read the file but is unable to covert it to mp3
