Use Don Gilbert's readseq. It's free. You can do DNA sequence file
format conversion using readseq online at

Alternatively, you can download binaries or source from
ftp://ftp.bio.indiana.edu/molbio/readseq/ and get yourself a local
version. A local (to you) web site of interest is at

Can't help here, sorry.
