Trouble converting audio files

I shot some more video today and since I hadn't shot in a bit, I didn't set my audio recording device to record in .wav. I recorded in .ogg-which I had done before and this august forum suggested I convert it using VLC which worked just fine.

OK, so I open my VLC v. 3.0.16 (I'm on OS 10.14.6) but for the life of me it won't convert! I keep getting .ogg's after the "conversion"!

I mean, it's pretty obvious; drop the file onto the window, click on the format to convert it to, select where it should be saved, and hit apply. and, nothing! still shows a saved file as an .ogg...

What am I doing wrong?

Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

XLD
Media convertor
Audacity

don't know that I have ever used VLC for audio conversion standalone.
That's not to say it won't work. But I see no prefs that need to be set.
So dunno ...

Thx, all. I did manage to get them converted to .m4v's which work in Premiere Pro.
