    Hey all,

    I bought a uk audio file, the extension is wma.... I cant get it to play in any of my apps, not even windows media player. Are there any free programs i can play this in or convert it to play in itunes?...

    Thanks!

    Sounds like it is a protected Windows Media file, only playable in Windows Media Player 10 or 11 since Microsoft wont allow it to be played anywhere else. Only way is to get on a windows machine and see if you can rip it to a CD then re-import it as an Mp3

    That file is probably using the Windows Media DRM, which is incompatible with the Mac. Totally incompatible.
