    You\'re not doing anything wrong - I think this is a bug within S-Converter. I could be wrong, but from my experiance it seems to mess up certain samples. Which libraries were you trying to convert?

    Steinway B - you\'ll probablybe safe with 64 meg, but it never hurts to have 128. Ram prices seem to be dropping slightly again, which is good!

    hi e4,thankyou for the info.the program i am using is Hans Zimmer Guitars 1(the sampling qualilties arent that great)it only happens on a few of the samples.also ,with steinway B,& bob clearmountain(big mixing kit)the message I get is:error code 1004 there is not enough memory in your system....etc.My computer is a pentium II 266 with 64mb.this is probably not the ideal setup,but I am working on upgrading when prices drop.I hope this gives you a clearer picture on my problem ,any ideas would be much appreciated

    Odd..hmm. Your PC should be fine - it\'s not like the samples are absolutely huge that you are trying to load. One thing that might be a factor is your hard disk with your swap file on it. How big is your hard drive? Some windows programs can report an error \"out of memory\" problem if there is not enough space on the disk that holds the .swp file. Also, S-Converter MIGHT be using your C drive as a temporary \'work space\' when it is converting samples...check to see you have enough space (probably more than 100 megs should do). Let me know if it works out...I\'ll try and think of something else if that doesn\'t help.
