I need to create an audio file and the receiver needs it in Windows Media format. What is a good Mac program, hopefully free, that will do that? I also have an iPad and iPhone so if necessary an app for either device that will do this will work also.

If you are looking to convert an audio file to WMA format, you could use the free software below:

Thanks, that is good to know, though I am a bit put off by the Divx part (bolded). Is that correct for WMAs?

Just tested the resulting file in Windows XP SP 3 Professional and it was playable in WMP.
