[MPlayer-users] Problem with "-ao pcm" and some old *.rm files.

I'm running FC3 with the following RPMs installed:
...and some fonts and skins.

I have some old *.rm files that I am trying to convert to mp3. 
I start with:
mplayer -ao pcm <filename>.rm
and then use lame to convert it to mp3.

Most of the files work fine, but with a few I get the results below. The 
audiodump.wav file is created with zero bytes. 

One additional note: If I type mplayer <filename>.rm the file will play 

Again, this is only for a few of the files I'm trying to convert. Most work 
just fine. 

Thanks for any help/advice.
