IMPORTANT! Before downloading the Sony software or any other tools to play .DVF files, be sure to open your .DVF files in Notepad first. If they appear to be in English character set with the characters:


then you likely do have a Sony DVF file.

But if the characters appear to be either rectangles (or Asian characters, if you have Chinese / Korean character sets installed), then you probably have the DIASONIC DVR format that requires the DIASONIC DVR-Explorer. This obscure software may have been available previously from DIASONIC, but it seems no longer to be offered as a download.

I found a copy of the install files, and successfully converted the .DVF files to .WAV - I was mostly amazed it was possible to encode audio with Asian characters.

Apologies to anyone who finds .DVF files...I posted about this format here:


The last comment above mine appears to be related to a new proprietary video format, which is completely unrelated.


Here is what the DVR-Explorer looked like:

And in my related post at AfterDawn, here is what the COWON JetVoiceMail player looked like, which I think used a similar codec:

I use Avdshare Audio Converter to Convert any DSS or DS2 to MP3, WAV, AAC, AC3, FLAC, AIFF, OGG, WMA, etc for using DSS on more other audio applications.
