When I try converting a matrix to a data frame, it works for me:
> x <- matrix(1:6,ncol=2,dimnames=list(LETTERS[1:3],letters[24:25]))
> data.frame(x)
x y
A 1 4
B 2 5
C 3 6
> str(data.frame(x))
`data.frame': 3 obs. of 2 variables:
$ x: int 1 2 3
$ y: int 4 5 6

You can also use as.data.frame() to convert a matrix to a data.frame
(but note that if colnames are missing form the matrix, as.data.frame()
constructs different colnames than does data.frame().
You say "it didn't work" -- it's difficult to help with such a
non-specific complaint. Can you explain exactly how it didn't work for
you? (e.g., show the exact error message).
