    Foobar will too. Foobar2000.org

    Are you looking to retain tags? track#,title,artist, etc. I think foobar's diskwriter can do that too, but it might not be on by default.

    regards,
    Rob.

    The FLAC frontend from the FLAC website has the option to encode or decode.

    As above, Flac frontend allows the conversion back to WAV for burning music CDs.

    Also if it's for burning to CD then I know Nero has a FLAC plugin to do it the way it does for MP3s.

    I used Foobar in the end, and i needed to convert some FLAC files to WAV for my jukebox. My frontend wouldn't reconigse the FLAC files, eventhough Winamp did.
