Thanks.

Yep, sure I can. For each sample you read in, all you need to do is:

1. Subtract 128 from the number.

2. Multiply the result by 256.

Then you can write the data back. Remember to read each byte in using the Byte data type and store the resulting data in a (short) integer. (E.G. a 16 Bit Integer).

Hope This Helps - Feel free to email me if you get stuck!
