And yea, when I downloaded it, it was in wmv. And it played fine in Quicktime. And it also wouldn't import into iTunes. So I changed it to .mp3 and it still wouldn't

Okay, I promise I'm not laughing. Unfortunately, changing the file name doesn't change the actual file. Was it originally a WMA or WMV? Something from the Flip4Mac range may help you convert a WMV to something more useable. Something like EasyWMA might help convert it, if it's a WMA. :)

Can I use ffmpegx? And I do already have flip4mac.Probably why it plays in quicktime. And I believe the original download was wma.

Edit. Okay I just used ffmpegx and aparently the original file type was asf. And I converted it to mp3 just fine.

Thanks
