VM1 is an audio file format unique to the Panasonic platform. The format is the default file format for Panasonic's line of digital voice recorders. Because VM1 is not supported by all audio player applications, you must convert your VM1 files to another format if you wish to burn them to a CD or play them in conventional digital audio applications such as Windows Media Player. You can convert VM1 files to WAV format for free with just a few clicks of the mouse using an audio conversion program that supports VM1 files.
Download and install an audio conversion program that is compatible with VM1 files, such as CDex or Awave Studio; both programs have shareware versions that can be downloaded free of charge.
Open your audio conversion program and add the VM1 files you want to convert into the converter's menu. You can copy and paste the files or drag and drop them from their source folder into the converter's menu.
Select a destination folder where your new WAV files will be stored.
Select the "File" menu on the top toolbar of your conversion program and choose "Convert."
Select "WAV" from the drop-down menu in the text box labelled "File Type" or "Convert To" and click the "Convert" button.
