Or, you could skip using Sound Recorder to convert to CD-quality WAVs by doing the following:

First, download PP's ACM WAV writer plug-in from and install it.
Next, open Winamp, go to Winamp Preferences/Plug-ins/Output, and double-click on "ACM WAV writer plug-in" in the list on the right. Click on the "ReadMe" button for information about the plug-in and how to use it. (But for the sake of completeness and clarity, I'll finish explaining how to convert to stereo anyway.)
Once you've read and closed the ReadMe window, choose a folder to save your converted files to by clicking on the "output directory:" button and browsing to the folder of your choice.
Next, make sure that "convert to format:" has a check mark next to it (click once on the little box if it doesn't).
Then, click on the button labeled as "...". This will bring up a format selection dialog box. Click on the down-pointing arrow next to the "Format:" selection box, and choose "PCM" from the drop-down list. Then click on the down-pointing arrow next to the "Attributes:" selection box, and choose "44,100 Hz, 16 Bit, Stereo 172 KB/s" from the drop-down list. Click on the OK button.
Leave the "output file mode" set to "auto".
Click on the OK button and exit Winamp Preferences.
Make sure that shuffle and repeat are turned off. Also make sure that Winamp's equalizer is disabled, and that no DSP plug-ins are active.
Play the files you want to convert to stereo WAV files. (Note that you won't be able to hear them during conversion.)
When you're done converting your files to WAV, be sure to go back to Winamp Preferences/Plug-ins/Output and select "Nullsoft waveOut plug-in".
Find the WAV files you just created, and they'll be ready to burn to CD.
