    Hi. I want to try a purchase a .wma file off the internet. It costs 99p but I cant play in on my mac cos WMP does not support the copy protection blah-blah-blah. Does anyone know how I can get them to work on my Mac? Thanks.

    Why not just get it off of the iTunes Music Store instead? It'll likely cost the same amount and be better quality to boot.

    If you must get it as a rights-restricted WMA, your only option is to download it on a PC and burn it to a CD as audio files, then rip it into iTunes from the CD.

    It is only something that I can get form one site and it is not avaliable through iTunes. I suppose I will have to delve into Virtual PC. I suppose that will do the job!

    yeah, itunes costs 79p (i think) but yeah...it's annoying not to be able to use stuff like that. would vpc on your dual g4 (im assuming you'll be using that since it's faster than your pb) be able to handle music?
