    I converted quite a few mono track WAV files to RIFF MP3s.  I was trying to save disk space so I unwisely told CDex to delete originals.  It went through the conversion process and the files appear to be MP3 sized but they are all completely blank. 
    Anyone have a clue?  These are important recordings from a 16 Track Roland Mixer.  I need to restore them to WAV if at all possible. 

    I was using CDex 1.51 and did "Convert, Reencode Compressed Audio Files" with encoder set to LAME 1.32 and "Convert to RIFF" checked.  320kbps

    I also tried the same operation later with 1.70 beta 4 and got the same results.

    Many Thanks,
