    I ripped some CDs using Microsoft Windows Media Player and now I have a bunch of .wma files.

    Is there any tool in OSX that will allow me to convert .wma files to mp3 files?

    Well, I would have but I only had a notebook computer with Windows. Now I have the files but they are huge and won't play on I-Tunes. Yes, it's a pain.

    The easiest way will be to re-rip the CDs using iTunes. Failing that, the Windows version of iTunes can convert WMA to AAC.

    WOW! Thanks for the link to the AAC info page. I can't believe I am so out of it that I am not aware of this format!:eek:

    It's the default iTunes/iPod format, so it helps to know that it exists :p
