Hmm!?  "Mpeg Layer 3 Audio" *is* and mp3 file type. The file command
shows this for me:
$ file "my song.mp3"
my song.mp3: MPEG ADTS, layer III, v1, 128 kBits, 44.1 kHz, JntStereo

$ file "my song.wav"
my song.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16
bit, stereo 44100 Hz

my wav file is about 70MB, while the mp3 is about 6.5MB.

So I guess that is why I'm getting the below error, would that be correct ??

lame "Hark_NatCole.wav" "Hark_NatCole.mp3"  Unsupported data format: 0x0055

The 0x0055 refers to an mp3 file characteristic.

I forgot to say that I'm running a X86_64 box and there is no lame.i386 on my repos.

That's a bummer.
Are you in the mood to compile from source? --->

I found another App in the Fedora repo, "Sound Converter" works great out of the box.

Thanks for your help.
