    what os are you using? i'm pretty sure you can only convert wma's on a pc (something about ms and licensing and all that).

    Normal WMA files can be converted using iTunes. I did so using 4.7 on Windows. I hope that support carried over to OS X was well. Protected WMA's can't be converted. You'll more than likely have to burn them to CD using a PC and encode them again or have to give them up.

    iTunes for Windows can convert WMAs for you, but the OS X version can't. Anyway, there's a little application called EasyWMA for the Mac that allows you to convert WMA files to various other formats. It's free for the demo, $10 to register. I've never used it, but it seems popular.
