    Because WMA is proprietary Microsoft and Apple is not willing to licenses it.

    Also there is a program called "Switch" that will allow you to convert your wma's to other formats. It does require flip4mac.

    You can use Flip4Mac or VLC. Flip4Mac uses Quicktime, whereas VLC is its own Application.

    I believe iTunes in windows can actually convert your music to mp3 or mp4 (AAC) files.

    By the way, WMA is low quality. Quality of WMA is worst than mp3 which is itself an old format over 10 years old, close to 20 years old.

    This is incorrect, WMA has many levels of audio quality all the way to lossless.;)
