mp2 audio file conversion and burn to CD for car

I have a Pure Evoke-3 DAB radio which can record programmes onto an SD card in mp2 format.
I would like to burn these programmes (via another audio format if necessary) to a CD to listen to in my car during my daily commute.

Can anyone recommend a suitable programme which can do any necessary conversion and the CD burning please?

Many thanks

convert mp2 to wav
I do not know mp2.
If you type command
file namofileinmp2format.mp2
this might help to identify file type

cd burning, drag and drop wav file within k3b and burn with k3b

can you play the file with mplayer? If yes then you can convert them for sure.
There might be easier ways, like scripts and so on

Just use ffmpeg at the command line:

ffmpeg -i filename.mp2 -ar 48000 -ab 128 -ac 2 -acodec mp3 newfilename.mp3

Check out Audacity (a sound file editor that can also convert mp3 to wav) and k3b (a CD and DVD burner app) Good luck with it
